I think seeing that, and his seeming lack of reading defenses means to me he doesn't prepare well enough, hearing him whine, and his off the field issues will not help him with HOF. People can say how good he was against ARI but let's not forget the single worst performance by a SB winning QB in the SEA game nor the lackluster effort versus GB. He needs another ring or he doesn't get in.
BB's three play-off games before XLV were outstanding (highest QB rating in NFL history).

Plus, HIS promise to get Jerome Bettis a SuperBowl victory kept that team focused & motivated.
