Easier said than done. Many QB's get drafted, and are taken very high. Very few turn into QB's who can win in the NFL. Maybe that is why the Bears have been reluctant to let go of Cutler. Their list of QB's prior to bringing Cutler in reads like a Who's Who in grocery baggers of the greater Chicagoland area these days.

That why you bring in someone who know how to developed QB.

So that is what 1 year he was a top 5 QB my point stands he was barely ever a top 5 QB who had way to many turnovers.

He has had some horrible INT-laden seasons. Nobody is denying that. You claimed he had never been top 5, which seems pretty absurd. I'm not saying he should be in the HOF, but with 2 SB MVPs, it should at least be discussed. His stats last year were pretty good too, especially considering how bad his team was (not top 5 though).

I think he'll have a strong year this year and the Giants will win the division.

Eli is a good QB but he is nowhere near a HOF player. He has 3 Pro Bowls and has never lead the league in any important catagory and is really a second tier player behind Brady, Peyton, Rodgers and Brees.

Yet there is only one starting QB who has won multiple SB's who is NOT in the HOF....does Eli get in?

Depends on how he plays from now if he plays well and wins a MVP or another Super Bowl yes but so far it does not look good for him but we have to wait and see.

I don't think Brees is underrated at all....when most analysts put you in top 5 for the last 5-10 yrs, u can't be underrated
