Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson
Today, the NFL Hall of Fame Senior committee announced two senior nominees for the 2012 Hall of Fame class. This is former Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson's first year of being eligible to be a senior nominee, but he wasn't nominated this year. Instead, the senior committee nominated two players from the All-'50s team -- cornerback Jack Butler and guard Dick Stanfel.
Since these players played over 50 years ago and are just being nominated as senior members, it could be a sign that Anderson has a fairly long wait.
CB Jack Butler, G Dick Stanfel, members of theA ll-'50s team, named HF senior candidates. Shows Anderson has bit of a wait.
Even if that's the case, though, many, including Hobson, believe that Anderson will eventually be enshrined in Canton, Ohio, making him the only other Bengal other than Anthony Muñoz to be in the Hall of Fame. That is largely thanks to David Kubicki and his campaign.
But Anderson is on the senior committee's mind, thanks to David Kubicki's campaign. It won't take as long as Dick LeBeau's 12-year sr. wait
We've been writing and talking about Anderson deserving to be in the NFL Hall of Fame for a long time and we've even talked to Kubicki about his campaign. Even though he wasn't nominated in his first year of being eligible to be a senior nominee, it shouldn't be too terribly long before we get to celebrate another former Bengal great being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
