John Randall Makes The Hall; Carter Is Denied Again
Randle in his NFL career,amassed 137 1/2 sacks, was named to seven Pro Bowl teams, and was voted first-team All-Pro six times.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. Damn that is not bad for a player that went undrafted and was always classified as an undersized DT.
He is the reason why I am a Viking fan at all. I loved the way that he went about the game and gave it his all, on EVERY play and I played the same position as Randall did.
The 2010 Hall of Fame class to join Randle are as follows: Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, Russ Grimm, Ricky Jackson, Floyd Little and Dick LeBeau. Do you know what is also pretty sweet, no Packer players..:D
With the great news come bad new, Cris Carter gets the shaft once again this season. I am still wondering what does a guy have to do to make it among the great. Carter was one of the great ones when he played the game.I just hope next season will be his time.At least a Viking made it to the Hall this season.
Right now, is John Randle's time, CONGRATS and wear the face paint proudly.
