To exclude Ken Anderson from the Hall of Fame does more injury to the Hall than to the QB who was the Cincinnati franchise throughout the '70s. See Bradshaw and Esiason re: Ken's courage, poise, and excellence. In Pittsburgh he completed 20 of his first 22 passes to beat the Steelers. No one has thrown a more perfect spiral yet, when he saw daylight, he didn't hesitate to rush. On a Monday night in 1975 America saw Ken put on a clinic, outplaying the O.J.-sparked Bills. He found his receivers (Isaac Curtis, Trumpy) despite multiple hard chucks permitted by the rules. In '81 he won a -40 ice bowl (passing gloveless to beat the gloved Fouts). Next, the Bengals narrowly lost the SB despite a gallant comeback by Ken. Finally, the vicious facemask tackle, silencing the Monday night booth. But he wouldn't quit until it was time to hand off not merely a ball but the tradition he had built.
