41) Morten Andersen

Morten Anderson, one of only two pure kickers in the Hall of Fame, was on not one, but TWO All-Decade Teams as a first-team selection.

I was extremely honored to hear from a former Saint, iconic kicker, Morten Andersen. “The Great Dane” holds the record for scoring the most overall points in NFL history, as well as being a first-team All-Decade selection in TWO DIFFERENT DECADES, the 80s and 90s, not to mention having the distinction of playing in the most games in NFL history. Andersen is also only the second pure kicker to be inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, after Jan Stenerud way back in 1991, making Morten the first pure kicker to be inducted in 26 years.

I thank “The Great Dane” for offering his prayers as I continue to heal!!!
