John Randle To Be Honored At Halftime On Sunday

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 17, 2010 – 2:57 pm

You’d be hard-pressed to find a guy who enjoyed playing against the Green Bay Packers more than former Vikings DT John Randle. It’s appropriate, then, with the Packers in town this weekend, that Randle will receive his Hall of Fame Ring at halftime of this weekend’s Vikings-Packers game.

Randle was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame this past August and on Sunday Tom Schervis, Vice Chairman of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Trustees, will present #93 with his Hall of Fame Ring. A cool part of the halftime ceremony will be the placement of Randle’s Hall of Fame bust at midfield during the presentation.

The bust is currently at Winter Park and we snapped a photo of it for vikings.com readers to see. Check it out…

A 7-time Pro Bowler and 6-time All-Pro selection, Randle finished his career with 137.5 sacks, the most by a DT in NFL history and tied with Richard Dent for 5th all-time. He started 150 of the 176 games he played in Minnesota, recorded 114.0 sacks as a Viking (3rd in franchise history) and was named to the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team. He was a fixture in the Vikings organization for 11 seasons (1990-2000).

Aside from outstanding production, Randle also was known for his leadership and fiery passion for the game. From players who lined up against him to teammates who lined up with him, Randle was a popular player known for his boisterous and outgoing personality. He was an NFL Films favorite, often captured on camera for his bizarre dialogue during and after plays as well as his mask of eye black.

Randle was inducted into the Vikings Ring of Honor on November 30, 2008 and was also elected into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008.

To celebrate the Thanksgiving weekend, coach Childress will wear a Turkey Costume for the first half. At halftime he will be decapitated by Ragnar, assisted by John Randle. He will then be roasted at 325 degrees for 6 hours, then thrown into Lake Michigan. Be sure to arrive early for all the festivities!

    Vikings will win at least 5 more games, hopefully all 7. Many teams that look so good now, will have some tough games coming up– I just perused the Chicgao Bears website– look at their wins– most of them have been by margins of maybe 3-4 points, several against so-so teams– they lost at home to the Seahawks and Redskins, their wins are against the Pack- by 3,

    spielman,childress, and the rest of the coaching have done a great job in destroying the vikings from last year..the bad drafting , wrong players let go, terrible signings , game strategy and planning…if you had to destroy the vikings on purpose you could have not done a better job than these guys have done…from last year to this mediocrity is unbelievable…if you really think about it has to be one of the most inept performances by management and coaches in nfl history…

    Midway– so what? Do I hear the sound of defeat? You have a chance, but your chances at the division are really not much different than the Vikes– we have an easier part of our schedule– you now have a very difficult schedule— it is easy to see you at 7-9, or 8-8, while the Vikes may overtake you– this should be fun.
    By the way, FYI– I highly doubt the Vikes will move, but I have a great life that extends well past football– won’t shatter my life. You should try it– get a life, you might like it.

Maybe the divisional playoffs, oops, there I go again. Bears must have been a wildcard last year- BUZZ–wrong again– oh maybe it was the year before that when the Vikes were division champs– no, I don’t recall seeing any bears in the playoffs.

    Sane, my prediction for the Vikings is that they will finish 7-9. They would be expected to win the remaining home games, and unfortunately lose on the road. We only lost to the Packers by like 7 points the last time at Lambeau, so it’s possible to win this one, especially if Sidney Rice plays.

    Seriously– Viking fans– there is hope– go look at the Chicago schedule and look at who beat them, and then look at who they beat– and then look at their remaining games– very easy to see them fall to 8-8. Bears are not an issue, it’s Green Bay we need to watch and hope falls.

    Actually we play a lot of the same teams– although we had the Saints and Arizona — one Superbowl Champs,the other a playoff winner, — But the Bears now play Jets and Patriots that we already played– and other difficult games– they will have a tough time. I just looked at the Packers site– kind of confusing layout– their schedule is not as tough as the Bears– WE NEED TO BEAT THE PACK– then I could see them losing two more– so I can see them at 10-6– they have to go to Atlanta, and to New England– Giants go to Lambaeu– Green Bay will lose 2-4 more games, placing them at 11-5 at best, or 9-7 at worst– THERE REALLY IS HOPE — if we get our game on!!!!

    Nova– that is what I have unequivocally proven by complete logical deduction of extrapolating the remaining schedule of the Bears into the most probable win-loss scenario based on their opponents strengths, and prior play of the Bears where their true strength is revealed. They will very likely lose 5 or more games, and at 6-3– well add 5 to 3 and that is 8-8.
    SO enough on the Bears– the Pack have a few tough games– WE NEED TO WIN THIS TO HAVE ANY CHANCE.

    Hey Monsters of the Midway,
    I’ keep seeing your comments on here and I just thought someone should set you straight. For one thing the present day Bears are no comparison to The Monsters of the Midway. Are you kidding me right now? The Giants showed how good the Bears really are by making Cutler eat the grass. How many times was it again? I lost track because it happened so much. Secondly we have a superbowl calliber team you don’t and if you think the Bears are actually going all the way you really are even dumber than your comments make you seem. Next time you run your mouth make sure you really have something to say.

    why hope to go 7-9 or 8-8??? we might as well keep throwing away the season like we’ve been doing. atleast we will get good draft picks for compensation. lol Childress has run this team into the ground and the big wigs dont care. they still support him. What a sorry organization! smh..I’m over this foolishness that is the minnesota vikings

    Monsters of the midway: What planet did you come from? Cutler and Vick among the best qb’s right now? Half right (Vick) only means your half wrong (Cutler). Even Vikes fans give Rodgers the nod bigtime over Cutler. What most of us agree with you on is that Chilly is just not a very good coach. Your posts are like lighting a bag of heaping dog dung on fire and setting it on your own doorstep. I like your coach Lovie Smith. He’s a class act. Emulate your coach, and people will respect your viewpoint more.

    I like the positive posts. When I hear people still talking Super Bowl I ask myself, “Did they legalize smokin’ mary-jane in Minnesota?” Or, “Are their special brownies that helps one visualize more Viking touchdowns?” I hope those people are right. For now, I just ask that our guys go out and play with passion and heart. Make it a fun game to watch again. Build on that, and we’ll ease into winter with something to smile about, (other than the Sears tool ad coming out on Black Friday).

    Analyzing those schedules of the Bears and Packers does give one some hope. We’ve all said it. We don’t have to worry about the visiting team at the Dome. We have to worry about our home team showing up. I admire the homework and effort many of the true fans out their have brought to the post. Far more informative and interesting than 4 years of Chilly’s press conferences. (Why does the league require so many anyway? Even the players have to get sick of answering so many questions that have nothing to do with how they are seeing the game unfold. More and more I can understand the Moss’s of the world going off! Why not just repeatedly ask these guys if they like Macaroni and Cheese!)

    Well, if it’s true that winning is a great deodorant, then we could use some of that stuff right now!!!

    The metrodome is a seriously outdated facility…..and most importantly, the Vikings do not get concessions revenue in this buid;ling, it goes to metropolitan sports commission of some similar organization..which puts this team near the bottom in revenue……..
    To think the organization will stay in this facility is simply not looking at the picture realisticallly…….truth is the people of MN will not support this team with the necessary incease in taxes, or if ur republican,Fees…..the ownership will then have little choice but to make sound business decisions………go where the money leads them…..

    Congratulations John Randle. It is an honor to have watched you play, your attitude and enjoyment of the sport would have gotten you into the H.O.F. all by itself!!!!!!!! While touching QB’s and O-Lineman thoughout your career you managed to touch so many more; fans, coaches, teammates and opponents
    The ferocity and energy you brought to the table MADE you two feet taller, and 150lbs larger, and you showed the world that even in the craziest of battlefields, you can overcome!!! I remember in a game in ’95 (i think) against steve young and the 49ers, You began the game barking like a dog at the lined up s.f. team. Nationallly televised, and the announcer’s are saying, welcome, first and ten, and there’s #93 in the QB’s face, standing and barking full on, I saw it confuse the opposition SOOO much it took until midway through the second quarter before they got their s#!t together…… AWESOME, ill never ever forget it!!!!!! WAY TO GO 93

    In his prime #93 could have kicked Geico man Mathews a@#.
