    Re: Which current Vikings are HOF bound?

    I'd realistically say nobody on our current roster will be in the HOF.

    I think our best bet might be Hutchinson (if he keeps up his level of play), followed by Sharper(if he'd even go in as a Viking). Nobody else looks remotely close to HOF material to me, unless Peterson can keep playing at a high level for the next 10 years.

    He donated the purple No. 28 jersey and white pants he wore earlier this month while rushing for an NFL-record 296 yards for the Vikings in a victory over the San Diego Chargers.

    The uniform has been guarded by the team's equipment staff since the game on Nov. 4. When Peterson said it was never washed, Joe Horrigan, a representative from the Hall of Fame, feigned disgust as he held the jersey next to him. Horrigan was headed back to Canton, Ohio, where the shrine to Peterson's accomplishment was scheduled to be on display starting Friday.

    I think they all need rings... unless AP becomes Barry Sanders

    Re: Which current Vikings are HOF bound?

    Right now it is ABSOLUTELY zero ... not even close to a debate on any of them.
    With a ring Hutch almost becomes a lock I think and Birk a longshot.
    All Day obviously is Hall bound if he has just six-seven more years nearly as productive as his first ... but that is still an IF.
    Sharper has NO chance of making the hall, barring having a career year at 33 or 34 years old. I know we are all drinking Kool Aid around here, but while he is very good ... he is not a Hall of Fame DB. Just look at this list

    They are pretty picky on DBs ... and Sharper is not close.

    Hutch makes it in easily if he continues his level of play, he's still (relatively) young, only drafted in 01. He's been the premier guard in the NFL for the majority of his career.

    Re: Which current Vikings are HOF bound?

    As some have commented already, nobody on the team would be in if their careers were to end tomorrow.
    As far as who is likely to make it over time, here's my ordered list:

    1. (probable) Steve Hutchinson - likely to make the HOF barring major injury or early retirement.
    2. (questionable) Adrian Peterson - clearly has HOF talent, but needs something like 7 more years of production to get consideration.
    3. (questionable) Jared Allen - if he can average 10+ sacks/year for ~8 more years he will get consideration
    4. (doubtful) Kevin Williams - needs to get 8+ sacks/year for ~8 more years to get consideration
    5. (doubtful) Darren Sharper - if he plays long enough to get the interception record he will get consideration
    6. (out) Matt Birk - past his prime with zero All-Pro selections

    The rest of the old guys are out.
    Anything could happen with the young players.
    I'm not sure a ring helps anyone very much, except for the QB.
    Four or five rings could really help the entire team, though.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    Re: Which current Vikings are HOF bound?

    Hutch - with 7 or 8 MORE years at his current playing level.

    AD - with 8 or 9 MORE years at his current playing level.

    That's all I can possibly, honestly, see.
    Criteria is tough, one of the main things Peter King has gone on record saying he looks for is, "did he change the game?"
    Hutch's contract and the "poison pill" situation, coupled with the fact that Seattle has been shitty running the ball ever since he left...changed the landscape for guards and wrecked a Team's running game.
    Adrian Peterson has ALOT to prove...off to a good start.

    I don't see Sharper going.
    He is the "ball hawking" leader of a defense that has finished dead last in pass defense for the past two years.
    I understand the importance of a pass rush on the pass defense, however, it is still a fact that the Vikes finished last and Sharper was a part of that.
    It is a fact that will not be missed by the voters either.
    Let's see how he plays this year, I'm optimistic the defense as a whole, including Sharper, will be better.

    Jared Allen - WAHAY too early to tell.

    Birk - let's revisit this one when Randall McDaniel and Mick Tinglehoff are in.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know
