    Re: 4 Vikes make top 50 current players

    i'm kinda suprised that Winfield didn't make that list..

    he doesn't have the recognition i think he deserves. he's undersized, yet still hits like a truck, led the team in tackles a ew times. and really does figure into O cord's game plans as they tend to go away from him.. also kinda cause the other side is rookies.. but. now that they arn't. it would be interesting to see the results.

    many gratz to those that made it, you can see the talent we are def building, and how the championship team is starting to form.

    Very nice to see 4 guys in the top 20(19). It certainly bodes well for our upcoming season. Mario W. is a good player, but still hasn't shown the consistency that Jared Allen has over the last 3 years. So I think their spots should be switched.

    Maybe because last season wasn't his best. How many games did he miss like 6?
    But i got to say he's great, hope he doesn't retire in a while

    I told myself that I wouldn’t pay attention to anything Pete Prisco of CBS Sports wrote about the Vikings — not after he slotted them as the 24th-best team in the league in power rankings he published just one month ago. But I’ve gotta make an exception. Just this once. Because he recently ranked the top 50 players in the NFL, and you might be surprised about the positioning of some Vikings players on the list....

    Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com has come out with his top 50 list of NFL players and four Vikings made the cut. Although it might make sense to assume Adrian Peterson would be the top-rated player among the Vikings that is not the case.....

    Re: 4 Vikes make top 50 current players

    Thanks for all the reads my friends.


    Not sure how much credance I put into these things.
    I guess I feel about the same as how everyone raves about how many probowlers we have.
    Funny, doesn't Dallas have like double what we put on the field?
    Were did that get them.

    By the way, If Kevin is on that list then Phat Pat should be on there as well.

    Ohhh wait, he comes out on 3rd and longs doesn't he.
    Gimme a break.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: 4 Vikes make top 50 current players

    I have read these lists, and sometimes I just have to laugh at how they come up with these.
    Top 50 players assumes all positions on the field are fairly equal, which I believe is not the case.

    Where did the great receivers of the Patriots get them?
    Moss basically disappeared in the playoffs, yet they still advanced to the Super Bowl.
    Where is Eli at?
    He got hot at the end of the season, and look where they ended up.

    And really, Mario Williams?????

    I like Jared Allen, but really, to be great I want to see consistency....and performance in the clutch.
    Have not seen that from him yet.

    Since I hopped all over the place, Top 50 (or whatever lists) are fun to read and debate over a beer, but that is about all the stock I put in them.

    Nice to see the recognition but in reality the only thing that matters is where we end the season. Hopefully we win the final postseason game of the year

    He did dominate last year, I think he belongs. It is about who is the best right now, not who has had the best career or has made the most pro-bowls.
    And LT definetly goes before AD. LT ran for more yards, had more recieving yards, and more TD's. Right after the Chargers game when AD broke the rushing record I was thinking maybe AD was better, but for the rest of the season LT stepped it up while AD slumped. After this season maybe we will be able to say AD is the best but right now LT is the best.

    How is he better than Allen? Mario had 14 sacks compared to 15.5.
