    I know, but I think it should be retired. I know that doesn't sit well with many people around here, but just my opinion.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Nothing wrong with your opinion.
    He did some great things for this team.
    Unfortunately, because of his off the field issues (and some on the field) some people don't really like Moss and don't think he deserves it.
    Personally I'm torn.
    I like Moss and miss him being on the team.
    However, he isn't and hasn't been for over 2 years now.
    He played for the Vikings 7 years but I'm not sure they will ever retire his jersey for that.
    I could be wrong and I have nothing to back it up but it's just my opinion.
    If they do great.
    If they don't, oh well.

    Yeah, I find it highly unlikely that they will retire his jersey since he left kind of in a bad way, but at least we had a great 7 years with him and he had one helluva last game with us!

    Good for him.
    Just picturing the Moss crotch sniffers crying in their corners made my day.

    If #81 isn't retired, then there's no frigging way that #84 should be.

    #81 was worn by Anthony Carter, WR
    Minnesota stats:
    478 catches, 7636 yards (15.97 YPC), 52 TDs
    and by Carl Eller, DE.

    As a Viking, Moss caught 574 balls for 9142 yards (15.92 YPC) and 90 TDs.
    On TDs, he stands above AC.
    For the rest of it, not so much.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: A new No. 84 takes the field for the Vikings

    Let me prefice this post with a statement.
    I like Randy.
    I loved what he could do on the field.
    I love to watch what the opposing D's did to stop him, however, I do not think that his number should be retired.

    The way I look at it, regarding his number, is that if the Vikes retired it then I believe it would belittle what these guys achieved or did for thier team.

    Numbers Retired
    10 Fran Tarkenton
    53 Mick Tingelhoff
    70 Jim Marshall
    77 Korey Stringer
    80 Cris Carter
    88 Alan Page

    Randy - 574 Receptions - 9,142yds - 90 TDs while a Viking.

    Sure his numbers are better than say Ahmad Rashad or Anthony Carter.
    Additionally, he probably had more flare than a Chuck Foreman or Robert Smith but do you really think that what he did for the team vice just putting up numbers is worth getting a jersey retired?

    Again, I really liked having him on the team, but just don't think retiring his number is warranted when you consider everything as a package.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    If Randy wins a superbowl with NE, and then asks to come back to Minnesota for training camp just to retire as a Viking, and then makes the HoF... Then we can retire it.

    #22 should be retired.
    Paul Krause was inducted into the HOF in 1998.
    He holds the NFL record with 81 interceptions.
    Moss had some great seasons, but he does not have near the qualifications of Krause.

    And there you have it folks. The scapegoat for '07's failure has been self picked.

    Thanks for the Sig LitlHarsh
