New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has officially announced his decision to retire following the 2019 NFL season. As a result, there is now plenty of speculation regarding his status as a future Hall of Fame.

Manning boasts arguably one of the most polarizing Hall of Fame resumes in recent history. Giants running back Saquon Barkley does not think there should be any debate, via Complex:

“That’s just the world,” Barkley said of Manning’s Hall of Fame debate. “I don’t know, what even qualifies you to be a Hall of Famer? No one knows that qualification when it comes to football. In baseball, you have to do this and in basketball, you have to do that. In football, there are some people who are Hall of Famers who may not have had the same accolades as Eli Manning had so how can you even argue that?”

There is certainly plenty of truth to Barkley's comments. Although Manning may have enjoyed quite the roller-coaster career with the Giants, it is difficult to argue against the accolades he has accumulated.

Manning will finish his career ranked in the top 10 of every major passing category and is a four-time Pro Bowl. Of course, his biggest calling card to the Hall of Fame will be the fact that he defeated the New England Patriots twice in the Super Bowl while earning MVP honors both times as the Giants quarterback.

Manning's resume certainly stacks up to many of the quarterbacks currently in the Hall of Fame. It will be interesting to see if it is enough to garner first-ballot recognition for the Giants legend when the time comes.
