It'll be interesting to see how the league treats the passing explosion and the subsequent inflation of the record books. I mean, maybe you can make the case for some of these guys, but how many do you think of and your first thought is "oh yeah, he's getting in":
Andrew Luck (might be a stretch considering he didn't play long enough)
Big Ben is the only "lock" from that list. His body of work topped with trophies is too strong of a case.
Romo, Ryan and Stafford would be very clear signs that the standard for making the HoF has declined. Romo and Stafford in particular simply don't have the "peak" normally considered a prerequisite. These 3 will be guys regularly listed as finalists before the final decision is whittled down but won't ever make it
I think an argument can be made for Cam on his 3rd or 4th ballot because he was so unique.
Rivers will probably make it similar to Cam but on his 2nd or 3rd try because he has a big body of work to build a case off of
Eli might make it (he shouldn't) because the NY media (along with others) seems to think 4 months worth of football is a HoF case.
Palmer and Luck shouldn't even make it onto preliminary ballots. Careers were to short and not a high enough peak
So to answer your question of who on this jumps into your head as a HoF its 1 with 2 probables
