The unreported trait that made Morten Andersen so special

There's something about former kicker Morten Andersen -- something seldom reported -- that made him Hall-of-Fame worthy, and Pro Football Journal's John Turney identifies it by digging through Andersen's history.

Morten Andersen will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in one week, and there's a good reason: For two decades there was nobody better at his position.

You can look it up.

Andersen was an NFL first-team all-decade kicker for the 1980s and 1990s. He's also the league's all-time leading scorer. He appeared in more games than anyone. He made more field goals than anyone. And he's the career scoring leader for two teams -- the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints.

But there's something else about Andersen that made him Hall-of-Fame worthy, and NFL historian John Turney of Pro Football Journal had to dig deep into Andersen's history to find it. And he not only identified it; he wrote about it.
