Every quarterback who has become eligible for Canton with two or more Super Bowl wins has gotten in … except one. Jim Plunkett is not in, and is unlikely to get in. The rest of his career body of work has been held against him. Is Manning’s strong enough?
Or will it need to be? Is this enough — not just being 2-0, like Plunkett, but 2-0 against those guys, when no one else has ever crossed that threshold once?

(To be fair, another question: that “How you like me now?” moment Vintage MLB Jerseys Cheap between Cousins and McCloughan last season — did Cousins unwittingly yell that at the Vip Cheap Jerseys wrong guy? Based on McCloughan’s reaction, did the kinda-sorta general manager already know it? OK, that’s two more questions. They tend to pile up fast with this franchise.)
