    McDaniel "should" get in, I mean if Jackie Slater got in on his first try, who knows.

    Zimmerman is another who has a chance. He was a perinial pro-bowler and All-Pro.
    It helps that he has a ring, I know it shouldn't matter, but somehow that comes into play.

    Doleman is so under appreciated it's not even funny !
    Here's a man who retired 4th all time in career sacks, lots of pro bowl apperances, a NFC defensive player of the year, and has #'s that are more than comparable to Bruce Smith and
    Reggie White, but will that be enough ?

    Let's just see what happens. One thing that would help is if the Vikings did a better job "promoting" their players of the past that are worthy of this honor.

    First time...
    my guess would be Walker, mayber Craig.
    McDaniel and Zimmerman are outstanding candidates, as is Doleman.
    He truly was underappreciated.

    On Total Access they just said Randall Cunningham was on the list.
    I'd like to see him get in.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    He's on the list in the original link (and his picture is even one of the three featured), but I missed it....guess I was focusing in on McDaniel.

    Joey Browner would be the one from that list to get my vote. Now there is a guy that could tackle.

    I forget which game it was or whether it was on a punt or kick-off, but the player attempting to catch the ball never signaled for the fair catch & joey just laid him out at full speed.

    I wish I could find the video of that hit.

    Chris Doleman gets my vote. What a hole filler!

    mcdaniel and zim will get in. i would love to see jordan and browner also but don't think they will get there yet. doleman also deserves serious consideration with all of his sacks.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.
