I think this is the year for Mort!


It seems absurd. The leading scorer in NFL history isn't in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The NFL is the only pro sports league where this is the case. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wayne Gretzky and Ricky Henderson were each first-ballot inductees in their sports' respective halls, the NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball.

Yet, Andersen, the former New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons star, remains on the sideline, patiently waiting year after year for his ticket to be punched to Canton, Ohio.

Agreed it's Morten's time.
Question: Did he retire as a Saint or Dirty Bird?

Saint. He said himself in an interview that now there are three Saints in the HoF, one on offence, one on defence and one on special teams.
