  1. Jared Allen was drafted in the 4th round to primarily be a long snapper.
  2. Top Ten Viking Quarterbacks

    Not Gary Cuozzo?

    Obviously, this is deeply important to the Wilfs, but it's also nice to see that they brought some current and former Vikings (Shiancoe and Tony Richardson) with them... https://www.vikings.com/video/current-former-vikings-and-mark-wilf-visit-u-s-holocaust-memorial-museum
  4. Nothing ever happens till the last week before the deadline and more likely, the day or 2 before it.
  5. aSK anything: 5.0: Designated Steve-vivor

    Did you let him know that you were a Vikings fan? Or were you not willing to risk it, considering he might crack something that didn't need to be cracked?
  6. I think it's far more likely that they drafted knowing there was a good shot that he could still play this year. Spiels always does his thorough research.

    I don't know when it was official, but it was after Vegas was awarded an expansion team. I was hoping maybe they'd consider here in KC, but we're far more likely to get a NBA team than a NHL team, since it's almost Dallas-like here in a lack of knowledge of the sport.

    At least you could have thrown out Kelly Holcomb.
  9. You aren't the only one. I haven't been all that invested in baseball since the strike. They lost me then, as there was no point to that strike and they killed a historically great season. If not for that strike, the Expos would likely still be in Montreal and Matt Williams would have been the first guy to surpass 61 homers and Tony Gwynn would have had a good shot to be the first guy to hit .400 since Teddy Ballgame. Add to that the fact that the remainder of the season was canceled on my birthday, I was done with it. I've been to a handful of games since, but the game has never been the same for me. The last soccer game I went to was in the 80s, I think it was a Strikers-Steamers game in the old MISL. I loved playing soccer, watching it is like watching paint dry. Football is pretty much it for me as far as being fully invested. I follow the Wolves to an extent, but the NBA game as a whole is a farce, so I can't take it all that seriously. The "superteam" concept isn't new, as the 80s was pretty much comprised of several superteams as well, but there was more "team" basketball then as compared to now. I can appreciate Golden State (without Durant) and the Spurs dynasties, as they played more team basketball, but the way these superteams have been "manufactured" is tragic to the sport. The NBA is a perfect example of where CBA negotiations can go bad because the players have far too much power.

    That is a sad, sad list. I'm not going to make any argument because that position has been so weak beyond Tarkenton, it's not even worth an argument. It's so sad that if he just completes his contract, Kirk Cousins will already be in the top 10.
  11. Top Ten Viking Receivers

    You guys need to be a little serious, because honestly you should be more upset that Bobby Wade was excluded.
  12. Top Ten DB's

    Was Ronnie Lott injured?
  13. Top Ten DB's

    I was never a Browner fan. I respected the talent, but didn't really like how he played. As far as the order, I will disagree with @Virginia Viking on Harrison Smith. I'd personally put him #3, and slide Robert Griffith ahead of Rhodes at #4. Smith, as far as I'm concerned is light-years a better player than Rhodes and is far more impactful on defense. Then I'd put Browner at 5, Rhodes at 6, Lee at 7. My honorable mentions would go to Nate Wright and Orlando Thomas...and also Audray McMillian (who also has been underrated in Vikings' history).
  14. Top Ten Viking Receivers

    Sidney Rice was solely a product of Favre. He didn't show much before Favre's arrival and did nothing after. I still remember getting burned here after I kept clamoring for Dwayne Jarrett over Sidney Rice in that draft (Jarrett went 1 pick later to the Panthers). In the end, certainly Rice had a better career, but both were unremarkable.
  15. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    I agree with @Cearbhall and @vikesfan89. He'll pseudo-make the team solely because he's on suspension. But, then if everyone comes out healthy, they'll release him once his suspension is over. I'm not even sure he'd make the team even without the suspension, because he was already behind Boone and then when they re-signed Abdullah and drafted Mattison, that pretty much signaled his departure.
