    Not a bad list of players there.

    It is always tough to balance how much the Hall of Fame takes into account other leagues. If it does, then Walker in the long run should make it in.

    Obviously, Carter is a lock to make it at some point. Hopefully this season.

    Browner is probably not a hall of famer, but he is very close.

    Personally I think that Craig should be in, but I understand a lot of the arguments against.

    *sigh*

    Not sure if he'd still be a "modern-era" guy or if the Vet's committee would need to put him on the ballot.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Sad but true Midg. Doleman is a interesting study.

    CC will make it this year, but I am still PO'd at him even after his glowing comments about TJ of late.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    A name that should be blocked form all Vikings site from now through eternity... I still haven't forgiven him. Say all you want, it wasn't his fault, yadda yadda yadda... I still blame him and sentence him to the eternal damnations of football hell for what he did.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.
