    84

    I am not sure if we should retire the #84, but I dont want to see a new vikes reciever wearing 84 this season for sure. I dont think they would but nothing surprises me lately with the Vikes. What do you guys think?

    Honestly, I do not see the Vikes retiring his number after he retires.
    Look at all the great players we have had that do not have their number retired; Studwell, McDaniel, Randle, R. Smith.

    The list can go on and on.

    It won't be retired, but no one will wear it unless a real star receiver is brought in that also wears 84. I would guess in four or five years they will dole it out again.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    Yeah I agree los. Unless he dies tragically (hope not) it won't be retired, but what do I know, I'm only a fan McCombs and co. could dish it out to the next WR we sign!

    *If this has been discused point me to the link and lock this thread*
    They won't retire his jersey. That just won't happen. Even if he was deserving it would have to pass muster to many people that would want to know why many of our other "greats" have never been retired. He was great but not worthy of a retired jersey.

    I agree with those of you that want to see it held back for a few years though. It would be tough to see Campbell running around in it next year. That would suck.
