    There would be 4 Viking greats and AD would be hanging off the side of the cliff, with one hand, chiseling his face with the other.

    John Kundla and Bruce Smith may have to be on that list also but then that would be six..

    Must be our future QB, lets dig him up...hes about as old and mobile as Frerotte.
    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!

    Re: The Vikings Mt. Rushmore

    This is difficult.

    Grant is a no-brainer.

    But I struggle to put Yary on if there's no McDaniel, just as I struggle to put Page, Randle, or Doleman without any other defensive linemen.

    If we're going by a total Vikings career I'd go
    Grant
    Carter
    McDaniel
    Yary

    But if I go with the best players, who may not have been here as long, I'm going to exclude coaches here.
    Doleman
    Moss
    Page
    Peterson

    I haven't seen enough of the old school guys actually play the game. I hate to evaluate a player just by statistics and accolades.
