Post Jason Hanson a Football Hall of Fame candidate?
Okay, full homerism mode here, but I really think that #4 should be acknowldeged as one of the best kickers in the game. You don't last 21 years in the league, get multiple records while there, and just get ignored. Maybe not the first time ballot, but besides Andersen during that time, was there a kicker as good as Hanson?

I think he was as talented as they come but wasnt on great teams and didnt make any real memorable kicks outside of detroit. i dont see it happening. he should get historical recognition with the team but not quite a HOF career

Former Spartan Morten Anderson is the only true kicker in the HOF. He is the leagues all time leading scorer (Hanson is 4th) and ranks 27th all-time in terms of accuracy at 82.363 which is well behind current leader Justin Tucker at 89.947% (Prater is 22nd at 82.142%).

He was a good kicker who lasted a very long time with a mediocre to bad team. HOF worthy? I'm guessing Adam Vinatieri will be the next kicker to make it.
