Let's just have a look at the numbers.........
13 Seasons in the NFL from 1990 - 2003(10 with the Minnesota Vikings)
7 Time Pro Bowler
7 Time All-Pro
137.5 Sacks (Most for a defensive tackle in the history of the National Football League.)
John Randle was one of the most feared defensive tackles in the history of the National Football League. If this man does not get into the the Hall of
Fame on the first year of eligibility, it will be a shame. I certainly hope that they do not do the same thing to him as to what they did Art Monk or
Irving Friar. John was a player that everbody loved to watch, or, if you were a Packers fan then youloved to hate him.
He terrorized the Green
Bay Packers for years. Even when he played for Seattle during those last three years of his career.
How many times did you guys ever hear of John Randle having off the field trouble? I for one never heard of him getting into trouble with the law.
Granted he caused more trouble for the opposing teams on the field. John Randle was a player that even your kids could love. That's because he never
got into trouble with anyone off the field
If Michael Irvin can get into the Hall of Fame with all of the trouble that he has gotten into. Then why shouldn't John Randle be elected to the
Hall? Or is it the number of Super Bowl rings that get you into the Hall?
