    Ring of Honor

    Who would you like to see put in the Viking's Ring of Honor? I hope one day the team will induct player's like Joey Browner,A. C.,Scott Studwell,Randall McDaniel,John Randle,Chris Doleman, Amhad Rashad and Chuck Foreman.The decade of the 70's is well represented,it's time to pay tribute to the player's from the 80's and 90's.

    I agree...the first step to the Hall of Fame is that the player should be thought of as one of the best from his organization!!!

    Re: Ring of Honor

    vikesoto nailed about everyone I could think of with the exception for Kramer who was mentioned later...

    The only other ones I can think of right now would be AC, CC, and robert smith.

    speaking of that, what are the "requirements" to make it, are there any?

    Re: Ring of Honor

    Gotta keep it an elite thing.

    Although those players were great, the more you let in the less elite it becomes.

    Jim Finks
    Bud Grant
    Paul Krause
    Jim Marshall
    Alan Page
    Korey Stringer
    Fran Tarkenton
    Ron Yary
    Cris Carter
    Jerry Burns
    Carl Eller
    Mike Tinglehoff
    Bill Brown

    *Do not confuse this with retired numbers.

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

    Re: Ring of Honor

    Cris Carter was put in a couple years ago.If the ROH is reserved only for the "elite",what's Bill Brown doing there? The ROH is a great way for "any" team to honor who they feel deserving of recognition for service to the team,elite or not.It's not the NFL's HOF.Robert Smith is a perfect example. Did he have a HOF career? No,but he did retire the Viking's all time leading rusher. Isn't that worth paying tribute to?? He rushed for more yards than Chuck Foreman(who many say is the team's best RB ever) and Bill Brown,who's in. We as Viking fans,I think, don't really get how lucky we are to see our team as a consistent winner.All the "elite" players do not come from just the 1970"s.All the players mentioned are "WORTHY" of being recognized,and it would NOT take away from any current ROH inductees!
