    Vikings All-Time Leading Rushers

    I have always wanted to know, who are the best rushers in Vikings history? I know you can find stats anywhere, but I wanted a list, so after not being able to find one, I comprised one myself. Sorry if it drags on too much, but it is every yard that every Viking runner ever made while in a Viking uniform. QBs, WRs, and other positions are included too.

    Wow I am tied for 130th place on the Vikings all time rushing list. That is pretty cool. I never thought about it like that before.


    Hmmm....I wonder what place I am in on the all time Vikings passing yardage list with 0 yards?

    I think you're right behind Spergon Wynn.

    Probably tied with him on total yardage, but I have less interceptions.
