Re: Morten Anderson could be punching his ticket into the Hall of Fame

Are you kidding? He has more points scored than any of those chumps.

In fact... he's the NFLs all time scoring leader!

NFL All-Time Scoring Leaders - National Football League - ESPN

Wow... look who's #18.

"Morten Anderson could be punching his ticket into the Hall of Fame"

He should be. How can you not put the leading scorer in the NFL in the HoF?
He's the only man to every be the all time leading scorer for two different teams. I don't understand how that doesn't qualify him just on those two stats.

In order for anyone to pass up Anderson anytime soon, Adam Vinitari, at his current rate (115 points), would have to maintain his average every year for 5 more years, he would be 46 then, which no kicker can kick efficiently after 45.
