Should be in the Hall of Fame and it's a friggin' joke that he didn't even make it to the final 10 this year while fools like Michael Irvin did.

It's nice to see his name floating around, even if it is just at PP.O.

Peter King last season spoke about Mick's "Ripken" like #'s and that he should be nominated on the senior's ballot. I heard once that the problem is he's an older player and nobody remembers him :(:(:(

One of the best centers to ever don a Vikings uniform.

Mick Tinglehoff - C - NEBRASKA - 1962-1978

His 240 consecutive starts are second only to Jim Marshall's 282 in the NFL record books.

All-NFL 1964-1970; All-NFC 1970.

Six Pro Bowl appearances from 1964-1969, including four starts.
One of the most dominating centers of his era.

I agree with you all, Mick should be in the hall of fame, actually he should have been in there already. Besides all he's done in his career, which is more then some have done who are in the HOF. His name just screams HOF. material. :smile:

The thing about Mick is he is so down to earth it's not even funny.
He dosen't cry about not being in the HOF , like Micheal Irvin did this year. Having been in the Southern California Viking Club for many years , I've had the oppurtunity to meet him and have dinner with him and he has NEVER complained about the HOF... I hope one day the voters wake up and put him in......

Mick was one of the most understated underrated Greats. I grew up watching him in the center of Minnesota mighty offense....He will always be a true Superhero as were all of those Viking MEN were to me then.
As opposed to the kids that play the game now.
PS I hate how the NFL Channel always tries to play up to the Street/ Rap audience with there dumb Rap NFL videos and Rich Eisen talk of Threads and what there wearin....how stupid and assinine!

Quit acting like a bunch of Kobe sprewells!
