Ken Anderson Belongs in the Hall of Fame
OK, I am biased. Kenny is a dear friend and my former teammate. But, Kenny Anderson belongs in the Hall of Fame. When you compare quarterback numbers, Kenny Anderson is one of the greatest passers of all time. I knew it because I was on the receiving end of those perfectly thrown spirals. Kenny could anticipate defenses to the point that if you were going to get hit he would throw you away from danger. His performance in the Freezer Bowl against the San Diego Chargers alone should put him in the Hall of Fame. He had the best passer rating in the NFL 4 times. Only Steve Young's 5 is better.
Go down the statistics, the only reason he is not in the Hall of Fame is that he played for the Bengals who never won a Super Bowl. He should have won Super Bowl XVI, but we let him down. He played a great game. He was the MVP of the league that year after getting benched in the first game of the season. Many quarterbacks are in the Hall of Fame because of the greatness of their teams, which is fine. But, when somebody puts up the numbers that Kenny put up, he should not be denied because he played for a lesser team. There is a great article from Cold Hard Football Facts that that makes the case for Kenny Anderson. Read it and believe. http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com..._Anderson.html
