A Hall of Fame career can be defined in many ways. Including a doughnut to me shows worthiness and does not invalidate a career.
From nowhere twice? Wow!
Not one, but three Super Bowls!
You can dismiss that?
I heard Peter King on the radio this morning. He said they are not allowed to speak to particulars, but was able to say that the “doughnut” in Kurt Warner’s career is why he was not voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
