Falcons TWESTOTE of the Day: Kunz a "Hall of the Very Good" Finalist

George Kunz's HOF shunning is more tragic than a box of expired twinkies. But - according to this article - he's in line for some recognition.

Earlier this week, the Professional Football Researchers Association (PFRA) announced Kunz as one of their finalists for the Hall of Very Good Class of 2011. Humphrey and Nobis are already members.

“Begun in 2003, the Hall of Very Good seeks to honor outstanding players and coaches who are not in the Hall of Fame and are not likely to ever make it,” the PFRA stated in its release. “The PFRA does not promote any of the electees for the Hall of Fame nor does it view the Hall of Very Good as a springboard for the Hall of Fame. We simply recognize that there are many players and coaches who had great careers who deserve to be recognized.”

Not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, some props are better than no props. At the same time, it almost makes his non-HOFer status more frustrating, namely because he really really really deserves to be a HOFer.  Kunz made the Pro Bowl eight times in nine years. IMO that makes him a shoe-in, yet the Board of Selectors doesn't see it that way. And of course they wouldn't feel that way if he were a Chicago Bear.

As always, I'm curious what y'all think. Is Dave a laser-eyed, evil space robot? Will Kunz ever call Canton home? Discuss!
