Donovan McNabb is adamant about his status: ‘I am a Hall of Famer’

Pro Football

Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb continues to insist that he deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“Absolutely,” McNabb told TMZ Sports. “I’m not hesitating on that. I am a Hall of Famer… My numbers are better than Troy Aikman, but he has Super Bowl rings.”

It is not the first time that McNabb has said he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame and has compared his numbers to those of Aikman, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback who won three Super Bowls.

McNabb spent 11 of his 13 NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. In 167 career games, he completed 59 percent of his 5,374 pass attempts for 37,276 yards and 234 touchdowns. Aikman threw for 32,942 yards and 165 touchdowns in Dallas.

McNabb was asked if his statistics were good enough to warrant Hall of Fame induction and why he thought it hasn’t happened.¬†“When they look at my numbers, they always want to add other stuff into it,” McNabb told TMZ Sports. “Was he an All-Pro? Was he this? How many Super Bowl opportunities?’ But people don’t realize how hard it is to get to the NFC Championship. And to get there five times, then make it to a Super Bowl? It’s tough.”
