Taking over Herbert Manning is absurd

Herbert had a great start to his NFL career. To to CBS Sportss, Herbert ranks first among quarterbacks in completions (839), passing yards (9,350), and passing touchdowns (69) in NFL history. He will undoubtedly remain one of the best quarterbacks in the league for years to come.

Still, it’s absurd to put Herbert above Peyton Manning at this point. Manning is a two-time Super Bowl champion. He’s won five NFL MVP Awards, that is the all time. He is Third all-time in passing yards (71,940) and Third all-time in passing touchdowns (539).

Not to mention that designating Herbert as the best quarterback of all time also places him ahead of Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Joe Montana, John Elway, Brett Favre, Drew Brees, Dan Marino, Johnny Unitas and many others.

Herbert has a lot to prove before he can start a conversation with Manning or any other legendary quarterback. He has yet to make his playoff debut. Individually, his honors are limited to Offensive Rookie of the Year and a Pro Bowl selection.

Herbert has immense talent and the potential to one day become a Hall of Famer. However, it’s far too early to consider him an all-time great.
