Eller Makes the Hall of Fame

Carl Eller's wait for the Hall of Fame came to an end today as he was one of four players selected as part of the Class of 2004.

Many sports historians believe that if the Vikings had won just one of their four Super Bowls in a seven-year span in the 1970s, we would have already seen Carl Eller, Jim Marshall and Mick Tingelhoff in the Hall of Fame.

The selections have come slowly, but, as Alan Page, Fran Tarkenton, Paul Krause, Bud Grant and Ron Yary have paved the way, the selections have come.

Carl Eller joined that group today, as one of four members of the Class of 2004 to get inducted into the Hall of Fame. Eller was voted in along with John Elway, Barry Sanders and long-time offensive tackle Bob Brown.

Marshall's bid for the hall fell short. VU will update this story tomorrow if we can track down vote counts.
