Three Falcons Named to Prelim HOF Ballot

Posted 11 hours ago

Falcons Ring of Honor member Mike Kenn and franchise all-time points leader Morten Andersen are among the 113 preliminary candidates for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2015

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the preliminary ballot of class of 2015 candidates Tuesday night and three former Falcons made the list.

Ring of Honor member Mike Kenn and four-time Pro Bowler Bill Fralic are among the offensive linemen up for candidacy while kicker Morten Andersen is also among the 99 players and 14 coaches up for consideration.

Kenn played 17 seasons with the Falcons, from 1978-1994, and was a key cog on the offensive line. He holds the franchise record for most games played and most games started at 251. Kenn appeared in five Pro Bowls during his storied career.

Andersen, who played for the Falcons from 1995-2000 and again in 2006 and 2007, scored 254 points in red and black, which is still a franchsie record.

Fralic was selected by the Falcons with the second overall pick in the 1985 NFL Draft and became a starter during his rookie year at guard. He was named an All-Pro in 1986 and 1987 and earned Pro Bowl nods in 1986, 87, 88 and 89.

From the preliminary list, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee will choose 25 candidates who will advance as semifinalist nominees that will be announced in late November. That semifinalist list will be further reduced by a mail ballot to 15 Modern-Era finalists and announced in early January.

Morten is also the all time points leader for the Saints.

dude may be the best Kicker of all Time

just the fact he is 2 teams all time leading scorer , should get him in with ease

he will probably go in as a Saint, even tho he was a big reason Falcons were in The Super Bowl in 98......

Kenn is guy who has been overlooked tho....

such a Great Player for such a Long Time and at a Money Position (LT)

Can a brother get a nom for Jessie Tuggle?

If dude played for the 49ers or Cowboys he would have been in allready

The Hall of Fame hold it against players if they spent the majority of their careers with the Falcons.

It may not be right, but its the national perception of the team. Very Weak....

Most of you didn't see Kenn & Fralic play, but a few of us did, and they definitely belong in the HoF.
