    Re: Chuck Foreman is on HOF...

    Jackyl,

    Could you post his career stats?..

    I realize he was and always will be a main stay name in the Vikings Org., And he was more than a hero for me when I was very young and watching the Vikes play.

    Hell, I used to run with the ball and try to do that spin move he pulled, all the time.....LOL..

    As a Vikings fan, I'de think he'd be a shoe in for the HOF..

    But to be more fair and realistic, I'de have to check out his Stats, during his NFL career.........

    But he is truly a Viking Great, No Doubt....

    Congrats on the Nomination Chuck..


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Re: Chuck Foreman is on HOF...

    He certainly deserves to be in the HOF with all the other greats.

    I've met him twice. Once at last years training camp. He signed an authentic throw back full size helmet for me.

    He has also been at the Walmart in Winona twice, raising money for charity.

    He's an awesome guy on the field & off.

    Professional Information:
    One of the greatest running backs in team history, Chuck Foreman is second in team history for career rushing yardage record with 5,879 yards, is tied for the team record with 52 rushing touchdowns, and has the best rushing day in team history with his 200-yard performance against the Eagles on 10/24/76. His 33 carries against San Diego on 11/23/75 and Detroit 12/18/77 are tied for the most by a Viking in team history. Foreman is one of only two rookies to lead the team in rushing and led the team on the ground for six consecutive seasons, also a team record. He owns the top two rushing attempt totals in team history (280 in '75 and 278 in '76), scored 13 rushing TDs in '75 and '76 to tie for the team record and has three of the top six single-season rushing totals ever by a Viking (1,155 in '76; 1,112 in '77 and 1,070 in '75). Minnesota drafted Foreman with the 12th overall pick in the 1973 NFL Draft and Miami star went on to earn the 1973 NFL and Offensive Rookie of the Year, NFC Rookie of the Year and 1974 NFC Player of the Year. He started in the Pro Bowl as a rookie and made four more straight appearances on the NFC Pro Bowl roster.

    You're right singers, Chuck is a great guy. It was awesome to wake him up early this morning with a phone call to tell him he was on the list.
