Donovan McNabb is one of those polarizing players that some people just love to hate. "I'm not hesitating on that". McNabb has been out of the league since 2011 and firmly believes that he deserves a spot on the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"I am a Hall of Famer". McNabb threw for more yards and more touchdowns (with fewer interceptions) than Aikman in nearly the same amount of games played. "My numbers speak for themselves", McNabb tells TMZ Sports in a new interview. McNabb has 37,276 passing yards, 234 passing touchdowns, and 117 career interceptions, compared to Aikman's 32,942 passing yards, 165 passing touchdowns, and 141 career interceptions. Regardless, McNabb is adamant that he belongs in the Hall with the league's best players. 'Was he an All-Pro?

Furthermore, although he lost the one Super Bowl he played in, McNabb also led the Eagles to five NFC championship games, while also becoming the fourth quarterback in National Football League history to amass more than 30,000 passing yards, 200 TD passes, 3,000 rushing yards, and 20 rushing touchdowns in his career.

In 13 seasons with Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings, McNabb had a 98-62-1 mark as a starting quarterback, and led the Eagles to five NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl appearance.

McNabb has never been a finalist for the Hall of Fame, while Aikman was inducted in Canton, Ohio, in his first year of eligibility in 2006.
