    It's gotta be our all-time interception leader, and 8 time Pro-Bowler, Paul Krause.

    All time NFL Interseption leader!

    Right after Krause, I'd put Bobby Bryant, and then Joey Browner.
    I used to be indecisive, now I m not so sure!

    He's only in the Hall of Fame and has a record that will probably never be broken. In 16 years he only missed 2 games.

    An interesting thing about Krause most people don't know is that he never led the league in interceptions for a season.

    What about this?

    Krause had the kind of a blue-ribbon rookie season in 1964 that few ever achieve. He led the NFL in interceptions with 12, was named to the All-NFL first team, was runner-up to teammate Charley Taylor for NFL Rookie of the Year honors, and was named to his first of eight Pro Bowls. During his landmark rookie season, Krause intercepted passes in seven straight games and he came near to matching that mark in 1968, when he had steals in six consecutive games.

    Hands down,

    Paul Krause was the best ever Corner the Vikes ever had, and in my opinion, one of the best the NFL has ever seen.

    He was fun to watch and a very energetic type of player..


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.
