    Vote for the New Vikings Defensive Line Nickname

    The announcers were talking about this during last weeks game against the Lions.
    Currently "3 Men and a Mullet" is in the lead, followed by "The Four Norsemen" and "Purple Reign".
    I prefer "The Four Norsemen" personally, but there are a few other good ones too.

    Here's the link to vote:

    Seriously if the mullet one wins it will be dead by next season.. It has nothing to do with football or the franchise, IMO it's just a really bad nickname .. Either of the other two names would be so much better.. Hope Purple Reign wins becuz my personal fab is Purple Pain but it's not even close to winning.

    Purple Reign has been done a bunch of times ... and as I stated before will be the name of the NFL Films DVD when the Vikes win the Super Bowl.

    I personally like Purple Pain as well ... but some of the others just seem a little better to me. I am still going with "The Four Norseman" ... but I don't know if any of these are strong enough to catch on.

    I like Wall of America being used by Paul Allen for the Williams Wall (but they already were called the Williams Wall).

    Check out my new signature picture!

    I love the "Shock & A.W.W.E."-nickname!
    Not only is all of the four linemen representet for each letter in the "AWWE" but also in the right order with the Williams "Brothers" in the middle.

    Quote from Wikipedia:
    Shock and awe; technically known as rapid dominance, is a military doctrine based on the use of overwhelming power, dominant battlefield awareness, dominant maneuvers, and spectacular displays of force to paralyze an adversary's perception of the battlefield and destroy its will to fight.
    That just summed up our defensive line.

    so what happens if we lose a DE, or when pat leaves in a year. Say for example we get Kampman over Edwards, that name is scrapped... Shock and AWWK just doesn't work.

    Haha! I see what you mean, but this is a one-in-a-lifetime chance to use this name.

    The Four Norsemen or Purple Reign can always be used, but Shock & A.W.W.E. is unique.
    Plus, it wouldn't be the same D-line if one of them should leave the team anyway.

    I picked Purple Reign for the obvious reasons, 3 men and a mullet is funny, But not very intimidating, The 4 Norsemen is now leading 3 men 40% to 32% with 370,000 votes.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.
