    Re: Matt Blair inducted into Vikings Ring of Honor

    Bud Grant told me he had the most talent of any Iowa State player that he had seen. When I responded that while he was certainly good, I asked him how he determined Matt was the best.
    Bud then asked me--"What other player was so impactful that the NFL had change the rules because of him?"

    Best donkey ball and autograph in history. Honestly, hate Vikings but saw Blair crush opponents as Cyclone fan. Immpeccable. Very Worthy.

    Re: Matt Blair inducted into Vikings Ring of Honor

    Given Blair's proficiency at blocking kicks, I would assume it is the "leverage" rule at the line of scrimmage.

    There is not a single team in the history of college football that Matt Blair would not have started on. If any team ever had two better OLB's (doubtful), he still would have been on the field as either a SS or a DE. He was that talented and that versitile.

    Have we had a cyclone inducted into to Pro Football HoF?

    *edit* I realize this is a stupid question. I'm new to football so cut me some slack.
