Let it go to the chorus:

Bill James developed the Keltner List of evaluation questions for MLB.  I've modified it for this thread...

 

Was he ever regarded as the best player in football?
Was he the best player on his team?
Was he the best player in football (or in the league) at his position?
Did he have an impact on a number of playoff races?
Was he a good enough player that he could continue to play regularly after passing his prime?
Is he the very best player in football history who is not in the Hall of Fame?  
Are most players who have comparable career statistics in the Hall of Fame?
Is there evidence to suggest that the player was significantly better or worse than is suggested by his statistics?
Is he the best player at his position who is eligible for the Hall of Fame but not in?
How many MVP-type seasons did he have? Did he ever win an MVP award? If not, how many times was he close?
How many All-Pro-type seasons did he have? How many All-Pro games did he play in? Did most of the other players who played in this many go into the Hall of Fame?
If this man were the best player on his team, would it be likely that the team could win the Super Bowl?
What impact did the player have on football history? Was he responsible for any rule changes? Did he introduce any new equipment? Did he change the game in any way?
Did the player uphold the standards of sportsmanship and character that the Hall of Fame, in its written guidelines, instructs us to consider?

A more interesting poll would be if he should go on the Bills Wall of Fame.

 

Sure, the basic answer is "NO" but he is one of the more beloved Bills in the history of the team IMO.

If he had a better arm he’d be a HOFer.. very smart QB, about as smart as any to ever play the game..but his arm is limited at best.. may catch some serious heat for this and may be a hot take.. but he has the brain of an elite QB with the arm of a wet noodle..

You're even underestimating his arm. He has a much better and stronger arm than Matt Barkley and Jake fromm

 

He has good zip within 15 yards and can launch it 55 60 yards. He doesn't have upper echelon  arm strength but he certainly doesn't have the weakest arm in the league

Agreed and Fitz is much, much, much better than those 2.

Cactus Jack was Fitz's Bengals Days.

 

He became Dude Love with Buffalo.

 

And has been Mankind ever since he left.

Fitz is much much much better than a lot of quarterbacks in this league. 32,000 yd and 200 touchdowns later proves it all

Watching the kid play his whole career at Georgia I can say with almost certainty that he doesn't have as strong an arm as ryan Fitzpatrick

 

And he will not have the pro career as fitz
