Cris Carter, John Randle Finalists For HOF Class Of 2010

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 9, 2010 – 11:05 am

The NFL begins its Super Bowl tournament today with a pair of Wild Card Round games as the 12 playoff teams try to cap their quest for the game’s ultimate team accomplishment – a Super Bowl victory.

But before that team-related quest begins, it’s important to acknowledge a group of 15 former players/coaches/administrators who are now one step closer to achieving the greatest individual accomplishment in the NFL – induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

It was announced Friday that 2 former Vikings – Cris Carter and John Randle – are among the 15 modern-era finalists who will be considered for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame when the Hall’s Selection Committee meets in South Florida on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2010, 1 day before the Super Bowl.

The 15 modern-era finalists, along with the 2 senior nominees announced in August 2009 (former Detroit Lions cornerback Dick LeBeau and former Denver Broncos running back Floyd Little) will be the only candidates considered for Hall of Fame election when the 44-member Selection Committee meets.

At the 2010 selection meeting, the selectors will thoroughly discuss the careers of each finalist. Although there is no set number for any class of enshrinees, the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s current ground rules stipulate that between 4 and 7 new members will be selected each year. No more than 5 modern-era nominees can be elected in a given year and a class of 6 or 7 can only be achieved if 1 or both senior nominees are elected.

To be elected, a finalist must receive a minimum positive vote of 80 percent.

Congratulations to Cris Carter and John Randle!

    I was at several of the games in the 98-99 season, including the last two. I wore my Cris Carter jersey proudly, he definitely deserves to be in the hall of fame! One of the best wide receivers of all time.

    It would be impressive if both CC and John Randle were in the same class, id wear my two jerseys that induction day then. Is it possible to wear both a Carter and Randle jersey at the same time? Cris Carter being #1 and 2 in major recieving categories definitely deserves to be in the hall, CC should have been in two years ago. The one thing that aggravates me is the fact that another legend Jim Marshall is not in. Too many great players get snubbed.
