Ken Anderson, Bengals QB, should be in Pro Football Hall of Fame - Kerry J. Byrne - SI.com One of the most successful passers in NFL history is not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And in the eyes of ColdHardFootballFacts.com, the exclusion of former Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson (1971-86) is one of the greatest injustices to ever hit Canton. But history's snub may soon change, as Anderson enters Hall of Fame senior committee consideration this year, 25 years after his retirement. There's been a groundswell of support for Anderson's Hall of Fame qualifications emanating from Bengals fans, as well as the quarterback's former teammates, including NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth and Hall of Fame offensive tackle Anthony Munoz. The groundswell has caused some senior committee voters to take a long, hard look at Anderson's impressive, Hall of Fame-worthy résumé. "What we've been hearing lately from supporters of Ken Anderson ... has me, as well as some other Hall of Fame voters, rethinking Anderson as a Hall of Fame nominee," Dan Pompeii wrote recently on National Football Post. The Cold, Hard Football Facts have long felt that Anderson was a Hall of Fame quarterback. In fact, we once named Anderson the most underrated quarterback in NFL history and recently published an exhaustive study of why he belongs in the Hall of Fame.
