Kerry Collins isn't a Hall of Famer. If he makes it past the first cut of voting some day, I'd be stunned -- even if he is 11th all-time in passing yards (40,441) and ninth in completions (3,439) and attempts (6,163).
Collins' career record as a starter was 15 games below .500 and he's 116th all-time in passer rating (73.9), and that's where his Hall of Fame candidacy ends. He wasn't a great player, just an accumulator of great statistics. He's Don Sutton. Ahem.
Anyway, Collins' retirement clears the way for the top five (technically) active quarterbacks in terms of career passing yards -- all of whom will be Hall of Famers, as it should be for such a significant statistic: Brett Favre (first, 71,838), Peyton Manning (third, 54,828), Donovan McNabb (15th, 36,250), Drew Brees (17th, 35,266) and Tom Brady (19th, 34,744).
If you're complaining about the ring-less McNabb, stop. He has gone to six Pro Bowls, is 23rd in passer rating and one of the most accomplished runners at quarterback, and has a lifetime record of 97-57-1 as a starter.
