    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.
    Not that it really matters, but he never led the league by himself, he shared the league lead that year, at least according to NFL.com.

    I used to be indecisive, now I m not so sure!

    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..
    Corner? :lol:

    No doubt about it HOFer & 8 time pro bowler Paul Krause.

    Additional Career Statistics: Passing: 2-1-50, 1 TD; Rushing: 1-0; Receiving: 2-17


    I'd rate Joey Browner 2nd.

    Re: the best saftey??

    well if your asking which safety i thought was the best during my lifetime/when i started watching football, it would be Griffith. sounds like Krause is the best safety we've ever had though.

    Thanks Josdin
