Barry Sanders had just finished his 3rd season with the Lions when they drafted Jason Hanson.

Dan Reeves was still the head coach of the Denver Broncos when Jason Hanson was a rookie.

The Kansas City Chiefs last won a playoff game in 1993, Jason Hanson's second season in the NFL.

Peyton Manning was a high school when Jason Hanson was a rookie in the NFL.

Ronnie Hillman was about 7 months old when Jason Hanson was drafted.

Brett Favre was drafted in 1991, but started his first game in 1992....that's kind of amazing to think Brett Favre started his games played streak in 1992 and kept it going until 2010 playing at the QB position.
i'm only 25 and that **** made me feel old as dirt.
