10 Quarterbacks I Would Take Before Aikman in Canton

Regardless of the bias that every sports fan has, one of the most controversial figures in the Pro Football Hall of Fame has been Troy Aikman.

More frustrating is his first ballot induction instead of an induction five years down the road.

There are viable arguments for the Tom Brady of the 1990s so to speak, but I just don't buy them.

Statistics aren't everything, (ask Dan Marino or Dan Fouts) but wins alone cannot be the sole merit for judging a quarterback.

As I argued in my first article on BR, the quarterback position is the most glorified position in the NFL.

While it could be the most important position, but only by a very small margin, the quarterback can be better argued as a product of a system 90 percent of the time.

It's how important of a component in that system a player was that shows his true greatness.

I don't believe Aikman was a great quarterback.

The following slides will showcase the ten quarterbacks I would replace Aikman with; they are based on how many years they have been eligible, their statistics, winning percentage, league accolades, and how important they were for their team/teams.
