Who's your personal favorite Viking of all time?

Who's your personal favorite Viking of all time? 


After deep deliberation mine is #88 Alan Page...To me, if there is one player that symbolizes the defensive heritage of Viking football through the ages, its this guy.

John Randle... from undrafted rookie to Hall of fame. Made the most of what he was given not expecting anything would be handed to him. Worked his @ss off to be the best.

Tarkenton is the reason a born and raised Southern California kid fell in love with the
team that has tormented him for over 40 years.

John Gilliam #42 - a complete receiver...very rarely had a drop, great with the deep ball and even better after the catch....the numbers he would put up in today's pass happy environment would be insurmountable

Cris Carter. All he did was catch touchdowns. Used to be Darren Sharper...I can't

Alan Page and Cris Carter. 
Last summer was a real treat. I attended Carter's Hall of Fame induction. While there, I met Page. It was a fantastic weekend.

Moss in a landslide. For me, by far the best and most exciting Vikings to watch ever.

Cris Carter did it well for so long.

Sammy White before that.

Great choices all.  I've been a passionate fan and follower of this team since the day Minnesota was granted a franchise and so it is impossible for me to select only one all-time favorite player since we have been blessed with many terrific players through the years.  So, let me just mention a few more who, for me, will always have a special place in my heart and memories.

Dave Osborne and Bill "Boom-Boom" Brown

Chuck Foreman

Anthony Carter and Ahmad Rashad

Joe Capp - ol' "Forty for Sixty" himself

Keith Mallard and Chris Doleman

Joey Browner and Scott Studwell

Ed White and Randal McDaniel, but most of all Ron Yary

There's more but I should leave a few "memories" for others to point out.

Adrian Peterson - no doubts whatsoever.

I'd have to say John Randle as of right now, but Adrian Peterson may pass him by the time he retires.

It's interesting that you named Ahmad Rashad. I regard his catch and sideways run for the winning touchdown against Cleveland as one of the best plays ever. Thanks for bringing back the memory.

Harvin would have possibly become my favorite if he had stayed. In this day an age it's hard to imagine a non-QB star player remaining with the team for more than 7-8 years.
