    The Vikings Mt. Rushmore

    Seeing as ESPN is doing that Mt. Rushmore thing for each state, I just wanted to see who everyone thinks would go on a Minnesota Vikings Mt. Rushmore.


    *For those of us who are less educated (or originally from Wisconsin) Mt. Rushmore includes 4 people, not 5, 8, or 10.

    Re: The Vikings Mt. Rushmore

    I was thinking...

    Bud Grant
    Allan Page
    Fran Tarkenton
    Paul Krause

    Alot may argue about Paul Krause but the man holds the record for INTs and played in every SB we ever were in.
    I was hard pushing Cris Carter out but man I had to.
    And personally Adrian has to show me a couple more amazing years and stop this fumbling crap, its really pissing me off.

    Allen Page

    Tarkenton

    Cris Carter (how this guy wasn't a first ballot hall of famer and Mike Irvin was is complete bull shit)

    John Randle


    if jaren allen finishes his career here then he may be on there in lieu of randle

    mod edit: I fixed the spelling of Carter's name, so we don't have a flood of posts correcting you. - josdin

    Showing my ages but the all-time BEST Minnesota athletes including coaches, I would have to choose:
    Bernie Bierman
    Bronko Nagurski
    Herb Brooks
    George Mikan

    None of them played for the Vikings but I thought it was the 4 best sports figures in Minnesota that ESPN was doing, not just the Vikings. Here's the note from ESPN:
    SportsNation nominations determined the four sports icons on the Mt. Rushmores of Sports for the 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. SportsCenter wants you to tell us which of the 52 has the best starting lineup. Vote now for the best five, which will be revealed on SportsCenter!

    It is...but this thread is "The Vikings Mt. Rushmore" not Minnesota's.
    Its cool though, I like your list, Mikan was a hell of a baller even though he looks like the farthest thing from one outside of his 6'10" frame.
