The Los Angeles Rams led by Matthew Stafford were crowned as the Super Bowl Champions after they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in a very exciting contest that went to the wire with all outcomes possible until the final play.
Matthew Stafford in just his first season for the Rams after getting traded from the Detroit Lions won the Super Bowl and proved all his doubters wrong who thought he couldn’t do it on the big stage. Stafford led the Rams to crucial and big plays throughout the playoffs which led to many people saying that he has locked in his Hall of Fame status after the Super Bowl triumph.
Former San Franciso 49ers player Richard Sherman was however not impressed with Stafford’s claims for the Hall of Fame as he went onto Twitter and said, “I’m gonna talk about it on the podcast but the HOF bar is incredibly low now. Like a participation trophy.”
Richard Sherman believes Matthew Stafford needs to prove more to be in Hall of Fame
Richard Sherman on his Twitter spoke about Matthew Stafford’s claims for the Hall of Fame after winning the Super Bowl and said, “’m gonna talk about it on the podcast but the HOF bar is incredibly low now. Like a participation trophy. No all decade team. No All pro. No MVP. 1 Pro bowl. Not even MVP of the SB. Never considered the best in any year he played. At least M. Ryan has an MVP”
Richard Sherman’s words are kind of true because on an individual level Matthew Stafford has to achieve more in order to be a sure shot lock for the Hall of Fame as there are other players who have better stats and awards than Stafford and they have no shot of making the Hall of Fame, so the same standards should be set for him.
However, Matthew Stafford still has a lot of years left in him and can acquire those individual stats and honors which can cement his legacy and his place in the Hall of Fame.
