    Absolute truth. Well said, Singer.



    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    I agree 100% with the class act statement, but how do you figure he was Underated??????????????





    I remember he always drew great admeration and reviews.......I don't think he was underated one bit.....Then again, those Wis., and MN writers would be hard found even saying anything good about their own mothers....

    I was fortunate to see Chuck in his glory. He is my favorite Vikings of all-time. Famous for the spin move. There is some classic footage of him on his home page at http://www.chuckforeman44.net

    Certainly not by Vikings fans, but from NFL fans as a whole. He was a great back who perfected the spin move & IMO didn't get the appreciation he deserved.

    Him not being in the HOF is evidence of that.

    I can agree with him not being in the HOF unfortunatley. Yes, he was a great running back, but he had such a short carreer that when you look at someone like Walter Payton there's no comparison. I would vote him in if given the opportunity, but I can see why he's not there.

    Just looking at the link you gave us above, his running style and moves look an awful lot like AP... He was a pretty good receiver too...
