    If You Could Bring Back One Player Who Would it Be

    Of the guys I had the pleasure of watching, I thought of Chris Doleman, John Randle, Keith Millard (in his one or two fabulous years), Joey Browner, Gary Zimmerman, Randy Moss (oh boy, this one kind of hurts) and Randall McDaniel. The Vikings also had a string of really, really good centers through the years. I think the most instant positional upgrade would be Browner at safety -- though Birk at center could be argued too (prior centers were just as talented, if not more so, but perhaps a bit undersized for today's game). The biggest game changer would, in my mind, be Moss.
    If You Could Bring Back One Vikings Player, Who Would It Be?
    Three things......

    1. I assume the author means that the cat would come back in his prime.

    2. These guys would have to play within the scheme.

    3. Don't take this the wrong way (as I assume a few will) but I think your answer will tell a bit about you as a fan, mostly related to the era you started watching the game. For example, I remember Page, but Johnny is more along my timeframe.

    I couldn't settle on just one, so for me, I went with the following (in priority order) as a means to improve our team:

    a. John Randle. - Replace, JK
    b. Joey Joey Joey Joe Browner. OK, maybe not that big of a need but I couldn't resist. - Replace M-will
    c. Cris Carter (before he pissed me off) - Replace Rice
    d. Kirk Lowdermilk - Replace Sully

    Looking at the roster it would either be Moss or Browner. Then followed by Lowdermilk and a plethora of other OL.

    We have had some good OLmen over the years.

    Too many greats have passed through the purple halls to name all the players I would like to see perform again. I remember back to Boom Boom Brown. Although not among my top 5 vikings ever, I would want to see Randall McDaniel back on the squad.

    I could field an entire team of guys I'd "bring back".

    I think Randle would be my #1 though. After that, the tandem of Carter and Moss.

    The trio of Carter, Moss, and Reed. Almost unstoppable

    If it was only one there is only one that was way too soon and that would be Korey Stringer, I want him back.

    That was my first thought too. I am sure there were better OL over the years, but I would like to have him back just to see what he would have done over his entire career...
