Hanson's football on display at the Pro Football Hall of FameIn last week’s 48-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, kicker Jason Hanson set the NFL’s record for most career games played with one team and became the seventh player in NFL history to record at least 1,900 points.

The football Hanson kicked through the uprights on his first PAT from that game – the point that gave him 1,900 for his career – is now sitting in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

    Congratulations Jason, hopefully when it’s all said and done, you finish your career here in Detroit you will be a “shoe in” (pun intended) for Canton too… first ballot of course ! I am so looking forward to watching my Lions annihilate the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, I hope that all of you keep your heads up during the game, because the Vikings are desperate for a win, and I wouldn’t put it past them to try and take out as many Lions as they possibly can. Good luck, and keep the throttle pressed firmly on the floor for all 60 minutes of Sunday’s game against the Viks. Roar on Detroit !!!

    Jason Hanson is no doubt one of the all time lion greats…How many years has he been detroits’ only offense. Congrats Jason! It’s been great watching Mr. Automatic over all these years.

    I remember early on in Jason’s career he made a comment after a touchdown saving tackle on a punt/kick-off?? return that the interviewer should not be surprised because he is an athlete. Well. it was not just lip service. His body of work has backed that statement up many times over. Now he is a fan favorite and representing Detroit in interviews as one of their leaders. Talk about Hall of Fame.
