Former Falcon up for Hall of Very Good

Every year since 2003, the Professional Football Researchers Association selects a class for the Hall of Very Good.

It’s a way of recognizing guys who aren’t in the Hall of Fame and probably won’t get in, although Carl Eller got in after he was selected to the Hall of Very Good. The complete list of candidates for the Class of 2011, which will be announced at the end of the year, was announced Monday and I only saw one NFC South connection.

It’s former Atlanta offensive tackle George Kunz. He played for the Falcons from 1969 through 1974. Oh, by the way, Falcons fans don’t need to get all worked up about Tommy Nobis. He was a member of the Hall of Very Good’s Class of 2005.
