    i watched the countdown on nfl network today and it was really good. the list they had, i pretty much agreed with. the top 4 on the list all need to get in now (marshall, carter, DT, kramer) and they all have the reasons why they are not in, but they are just excuses, and not actually reasons.
    Was it even the same list? I watched part of the show & Ray Guy was #10 I believe.

    There's a poll on the side.
    Guess who #1 is.
    Any list of players not in the HoF who deserve to be that does NOT include Mick Tinglehoff is just plain wrong.

    Excellent catch my friend.

    I also say the if Strahan goes in as a first ballot HOF'r and Doleman and Marshall don't get in, there is something flawed/wrong with the process.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I also agree!
    I voted for Marshall and it is a dirty rotten shame, even over Tinglehoff, that he isn't in.
    Makes me sick that most the country only recognizes him for running the wrong way.
    The one true "ironman" should certainly be
    in the Hall!

    the thing is, I bet strahan will go in as a first ballot HOF'r.
    All time sack leader.
    thats all they need to see to give him votes.

    Doleman (eligible since 2005) is at least as deserving as Strahan.
    The total sack count isn't it, because Doleman had 150.5 for his 15 year career, while Strahan had 141.5.
    Doleman was an 8 time Pro Bowler and 2 time All-Pro.
    Strahan made 7 Pro-Bowls and had 4 All-Pro mentions.
    Yes, Strahan holds the single season mark of 22 1/2 sacks (including one stat padding gift from Favre), but Doleman did have a respectable 21 in 1989.
    Strahan has as good a case as any DE not in yet, but Doleman does too and they continue to make him wait.

    SuperVikesfan mentioned Randall McDaniel (eligible since 2007).
    That's another one that's just wrong.

    There are plenty of deserving players that aren't in.
    And other teams have been victimized besides the Vikes (the Broncos come to mind).
    Some of that is just the nature of a selective HOF, which allows only a limited number in each year.
    But in my opinion, there have been some questionable calls the past few years:

    2008 - Fred Dean and Emmitt Thomas are borderline guys
    2007 - I'm actually fine with all of these guys
    2006 - Troy Aikman was not a great QB and Harry Carson is a borderline HOFer
    2005 - No complaints about the players that got in, but only 4
    2004 - Again, no complaints except only 4 got in

    All that adds up to players sitting out that deserve to be there.
    In the end, I blame Sid Hartman

    Aikman was just one of those lucky guys who was in the right place at the right time.
    Just compare Brad Johnson and Troy Aikman and there isn't much difference in my opinion.
    Johnson just didn't have Emmit Smith.
    Brad Johnson is no less deserving IMHO compared to Aikman.

    Marshal, Carter, Tinglehoff for sure. Here is a name you guys haven't mentioned. Randall McDaniel. He should be in the Hall of Fame. 12 time Pro Bowl selection, 9 time all pro, and the 90's all decade team. That is amazing. He should be in the Hall next year.

    I didn't realize he wasn't in. Thats just rediculous.

    Maybe we can get all the Viking HOF snubs in at once next year. Then we won't have to bitch about it for another 5 years or so haha.
