    Re: John Randle

    Without letting your "purpleness" get in the way, how many of you feel Randle belongs in the HOF?

    Re: John Randle

    My Purpleness aside, Randle's statistics say he belongs in the HOF:

    Randle left the NFL tied with Richard Dent for 5th in number of career sacks, and his 137.5 career sacks is the most by a defensive tackle in NFL history. Over his career he was named to 7 pro bowl squads. He was named to the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team.
    He was named All Tackle Machine of 1999 by Tackle The Magazine.

    Randle was another in the long line of better than average(dare I say great) defensive linemen that the Vikes have produced?

    Absolutely he belngs in the HOF....

    What he has going for him that "seems" to matter, is charisma. He was a character which will help the old buzzard voters remember him. I feel he "may" wait a while though.It seems every generation of the Vikings has a d-lineman who "SHOULD" be in the HOF. During the 60's and 70's, it's Jim Marshall. In the 80's it's Chris Doleman. Now the 90's has John Randle. Hopefully one day they'll ALL have their moment in Canton...

    Re: John Randle

    I was at Dicks Sporting goods the other day in Burnsville mall and they had Randle NFL Legends jerseys for sale. It was crazy. I did not pick one up as I allready own a official jersey from when he played here but I thought it was weird they where producing his jersey in a special line like that. Very cool to see he is getting props though after all those years of hard work. I am sure they still have some there if anyone want sto go pick one up, they had like 25 of them.

    Re: John Randle

    I belive he will get in but I dont think it will happen for a while. The voters are too busy putting in all the Michael Irvin's and Steve Young's right now. I think it will be 5 years from now when the voters go: "Oh John Randle...yea I remember him..."

    It would be a shame if that happens, dynamic player, played with alot of emotion, was exciting to watch, wasnt arrogant, and gave back to the community.

    Oh yea...his stats back him up too.

    Who could forget that eye-black design though?
