Both Straight Cash Homie and Bobby Moore will be inducted into the Ring of Honor....(that 2nd guy is Ahmad Rashad for all who didn't know)

http://www.vikings.com/news/article-1/Vikings-Announce-Randy-Moss-and-Ahmad-Rashad-as-2017-Ring-of-Honor-Inductees/94ca0c87-1730-44ef-94ea-38070a9d31da

I moved this into its' own thread as I think it deserves it.

Great to have two of the best receivers in Vikings history join the ROH.

Numbers should only be retired for very rare and special situations. If Randy had gotten the Vikings a Super Bowl, I'd agree, but he didn't and therefore, shouldn't have his jersey number retired. For all the positives that he brought in being the best Vikings' WR in history, he also had far too many negatives.

I'm far happier for Ahmad than I am for Randy. This will be the pinnacle of Ahmad's football career...Randy will still make the PFHOF.

Next up for the Ring of Honor, my vote goes to one of these 2:

Fred Cox


Robert Smith

When Moss arrived in Minnesota Wednesday morning, he was under the impression that he was attending a business meeting to plan ahead for the week of Super Bowl LII. Instead, Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf told Moss that he and receiver Ahmad Rashad will be the teams newest inductees into the Vikings Ring of Honor.

Moss is slated to be inducted on Sept. 11, when the Vikings host the Saints on Monday Night Football for the 2017 season opener.

Moss said he had no idea of the surprise announcement beforehand.

Moss: I think that sometimes my passion for the game got in the way of the business side of it. Like I said, you live and you learn, you mature. I think I lived and learned from a lot of my mistakes. I think they were my own personal mistakes, nothing crazy. Im not pointing the finger or blaming anyone. But, I think its just more of growing up. Im married now; Im happily married. Ive got my family, were straight. So, now I can just reflect back on the touchdowns, the games against the Green Bay Packers, the games against the Chicago Bears. All that stuff, man, was great for me. But like I said, all the memories that I have - good and bad - I wont trade them for nothing.

Rashad led the Vikings in receiving three times (1977, 79 and 80), was the first receiver in franchise history to have consecutive 1,000-yard seasons (1979 and 80) and represented the Vikings in four Pro Bowls (1978-81). He still holds the Vikings record with four touchdown catches in a game, accomplishing the feat on opening day in 1979.
