I don't wanna predict we make the playoffs but in the event it does happen here is my reasons why Hanson needs to consider a comeback:
1. One of the most accurate kicker within 40 yards in NFL history.
2. Not even a full season removed from action.
3. Loyalty to the Lions.
4. Only had a few opportunities and has never experienced a playoff win in his hall of fame career.
5, No pressure, who could be angry at Hanson if he cost us a playoff win in his 20 years of service. Not that I'd think he would be a liability but if a game came down to him he has earned the right to be that man succeed or fail.
6. If Yzerman was our Barry of hockey then I would say Hanson is our Lidstrom of football. Lions succeeding is wonderful but to see them succeed with Hanson would be beautiful.
If the fire doesn't burn in Hanson anymore then of course stay retired and cheer with the rest of us but if that fire remains we would love for you to be a part of the success. Please consider a comeback Jason.
