Not a bad choice though. Before I looked at the results, Page was the first name I considered.

Should have been Page & Tarkenton in the final.  They were set in the same bracket.  I would have gone with Fran.....

Fran Tarkenton would be my choice by a considerable margin. Bracketing makes such a big difference. Tarkenton, Page, and McDaniel in the same bracket? They should all be finalists, or at least Semi-finalists...

That's just absurd. Also, Rick Spielman is on the list, but Jim Finks is not???

I always liked Robert Smith- but he didn't stand a chance going against AD or Chuck.

In my opinion it was Randall McDaniel, (I've elaborated on the reasons before here, so no need to go into it again) but it IS kind of cool that the two "finalists" are the two my son is named in honor of (his name is Grant Alan)

Alan Page, for sure.  Favre should be up there, too.  Only had the one really good year ---- but what a year.

Can't narrow it down to one but my top 5 are:

Bud Grant
Randy Moss
Adrian Peterson
Brett Favre
Cris Carter

Re: Greatest Viking Ever.That's a tough one 


There is something to be said for Jim Marshall... It was actually a pretty big media deal back in the day when he played his last game for them... He was kind of Mr. Viking when he retired in 79'...

If it is just a greatest player argument its Alan Page and not even close... McDanial is probably the closest in positional greatness...

Buzz and popularity I think Randle had something there...

For the CC crowd I am not even sure he was a better player then AC or Moss, and he has been an embarrassment at times post career with comments...

We are talking greatest overall Viking so once again there is an argument for Marshall... (Page & Matt Blair are my 2 favorite Vikings of all time)...

To me Brett Favre should be more in the packer bracket. Not long enough for vikings. One great year and one so so.

I have always been partial  towards Chuck Foreman. Not saying to win, but over Brett.

Page, Marshal, AD, CC should be there

So---you'd select Favre over Tark on a list of all time Vikes. Explain. Take your time.
