This past weekend, we saw seven players get elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. One of those was a quarterback as Kurt Warner got his due.
Warner’s selection got us thinking about how many teams have had a Hall of Fame quarterback – and how long each has had one at the helm. Some have been more fortunate than others, but an overwhelming majority of teams have had at least one season with a Hall of Famer under center.
Our criteria for this exercise is follows: A quarterback had to start in at least half of his games in a given season to count as a year of HOF service. Additionally, to make this a little more current, we included active and recently retired quarterbacks who we believe will make the Hall of Fame -- Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, etc. Only the sure things, though: Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck, simply haven't yet done enough.
