NFL Hall of Famer, Deion Sanders, is voicing his disappointment with the lowered standards in place when it comes to people being inducted into the Hall of Fame. On the Dan Patrick Show radio show on Tuesday, Sanders talked about how they are letting any and everyone become a Hall of Famer.

According to Sanders, who was inducted to the Hall in 2011, the sanctity of the honor is being sullied, “It should be based on, ‘Are you that guy?’ Not just because we have to meet a quota.” Sanders says.

Sanders’ definition of a Hall of famer: Someone who had a profound impact of the game.

When Dan asks if Eli Manning should be on the Hall, Sanders responded, “If you have to think [about it], it shouldn’t be.”

Sanders’ sports career spanned five NFL teams (Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, Baltimore Ravens) and four MLB teams (New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds, San Francisco Giants). He earned two Super Bowl rings, with the 49ers in 1995 and the Dallas Cowboys in 1996. During the 1992-1993 season his team, the Atlanta Braves, made it to the World Series, playing against Toronto Blue Jays.
