    Starting wit Fran and going counter-clockwise

    33: Mel tripplett
    39: Hugh McEhlleny
    84: Dave Middleton
    67: Grady Alderman

    52: Bill Lapham
    64: Mike Rabold
    72: Frank youso
    85: Bob Schnelker
    83: Don Joyce
    I would have never got that was Fran. Damn he looks young and appears to have pretty big nostrils from that angle..... B)
    really? that was the first one I got. its the 1961 team, there's never been a #10 prior to Fran (Since he was on the original team) King Hill was the only other #10 ever, and only for one season in 1968 when Fran was a Giant.
    My apologies...... I never once have said I know everything...... :P

    Seriously, that just didn't look like him, but now that I know, I can see it is him.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I think Fran was drafted in the same draft class.

    Hugh McElhenny was a great football player.I'm old so I've seen all the Vikings teams, except 1971 when I was in 'Nam.

    Too long ago to remember all in this picture.

    No face masks. Probably for the picture. Face masks weren't very big back then, but I think they had them.
    That totally threw me off. Tarkenton was the only one I recognized, anyway, but not having a facemask on that helmet made me doubt that one.

    Awesome picture.
    For me it was those damn big nostrils....... You could drive a Mack semi in there. YOWZER..... :woohoo:

    You weren't born yet so I doubt you would recall.

    Kind of embarrassing that you have a better recollection than my memory from 1961.lol!

    So like you I looked it up. Yes, the jersey was number 20.
    And though Tommy played in 1961, he didn't start until 1962, which explains why he wasn't in the picture.

    Should have looked closer.

    That was one of the few things I did know about then, was that Mason was our first overall pick in our first NFL draft, and I had thought he was 20. Seeing no 20 in the picture didn't surprise me, as he woudl have been a rookie then. I also knew about McEhlleny, who is in the HOF, and Tripplett, so that made sense.

    not going to lie, I looked up some of the others. Alot of those 1961 guys weren't very well known at all.

    Good job. I never doubted you. You do know your stuff.
    Faulty memory aside, Mason was good, but McElhenny was a beast for his time.

    I wish there were more classic games available to watch.

    You can find the superbowls on youtube, but those aren't as fun to watch due to the outcome

    That's one of the worst things about being a Vikings fan.
    Lot of great history but hard to look backwards.

    I feel for Jim Marshall. Great player, but as time goes on,many people will only remember him for is his wrong way run.

    I love what NFLN does with shows like "The Lost Rings" and the re-airs of some of the other games that were considered "Classics".
