    Every year, Prophet pledges to buy the jersey of some random training camp fodder, if he happens to make the roster.

    I hereby nominate:
    66 — Leger Douzable, defensive tackle, Central Florida

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: Jersey Numbers out!!!

    OK, so here is my dilemma.

    Each year I buy the jersey of the #1 draft pick by the Vikings.
    Does that mean that I should get an Allen jersey, since we spent our first round pick on him, or a Johnson jersey, since he was the first pick?

    I am leaning toward Allen...

    I'd go with Allen, you can't go wrong with a 69.

    I would agree; add #22 (Paul Krause - HOF), #64 (Randall McDaniel - should be HOF).

    Unfortunately, the NFL frowns upon retiring numbers these days, and the Vikings have plenty:

    #10 - Tarkenton
    #53 - Tingelhoff
    #70 - Marshall
    #77 - Stringer
    #80 - C. Carter
    #88 - Page

    My personal opinion: number retiring should be reserved for members of the HOF.
    Stringer with the exception, I suppose.


    Ultimately, it should be at the discretion of the team, of course, but jersey # retirement is a huge honor that should be very exclusive.

    LOL.
    Agreed.
    My only concern is last year I got an AD jersey - and EVERYBODY had the same one.
    Wasn't as cool to just be one of the flock.
    I suspect that there will be a lot of 69s in the dome come September 14th...

    I got a feeling they're going to sell lots of those Allen "69" jerseys.
    I might lean toward Johnson just to be different.

    I like 44 on Tapeh too.
    Bet we won't see too many of those.
    For whatever reason, I like that signing almost as much as I don't like losing Richardson.
    Hopefully, he is a good, long term replacement.

    And, I like anyone who will wear No.13
    ;D

    So WHEN JDB is the Opening Day starter vs. Green Bay, what will the Packer fans think?

    good reason for getting a customised shirt - a one and only version, after all how many fans do you see at the Dome with Shockzilla or Anglo Vike on their shirts ? 8)
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
