    The folks at KFAN’s Rube Chat present an interesting topic: Who’s your least favorite Viking of all-time? As sports fans, we spend quite a bit of time talking about our favorite players — but who are the guys that you absolutely cannot stand?...

    This player not only humiliated the organization through his organization of the Love Boat, he was grossly overrated while on the field.
    LOL! What an idiot! These parties were going on during the bye weeks long before Smoot came on board. His credit card was used to pay for the boats because he was a new player to the team (tradition), but he did not organize it.

    Furthermore, it was the fans & the media who overrated Smoot, not Smoot himself.

    He was over payed as a player IMO, but who offered him the contract & who payed him?

    Smoot was a prime example of taking a player who did not fit our system & trying to make him fit it.

    Hovan, same thing. Took a player who was playing good ball, forced him to move into a position he was not used to playing at & then blamed him for lack of production (mainly sacks), yet anyone with football knowledge knows a nose tackles primary job isn't to sack the QB. Del will tell you the same thing. Cottrell or Tice screwed the pooch on that move.

    The defensive coaching staff in 2005 sucked from Cottrell on down. There's a reason not a single one of them is with the team anymore.

    There were far worse players than those two.

    One of my least favorite would have to be Les Steckel & Spergon Wynn.

    Underwood never played for the Vikings. I don't even consider him a Viking, just a scratch.

    "Spergon Wynn. Indeed, Spergon set the standard for ineptitude at the quarterback position when he made two starts for the Vikings in the 2001 season. His stat line for the year: 98 pass attempts, 48 completions (49.0% completion percentage), 418 passing yards, one touchdown, six interceptions"

    I didn´t know of him,it is a lame he didn´t stay he could have made an historic duo with Troy

    After my childhood hero Joe Kapp was traded to Boston, we had a carousel of bad QB play. My least favorite Vikings were Bob Lee, and Gary Cuozzo. They just couldn't lead the team the way Kapp did. Spergon should get lumped in that catagory, but he probably had better athletic ability.

    Re: Who’s Your Least Favorite Viking of All-Time?

    I typically like all the players that wear the uniform (no matter what color it is you GQ guys) but for some reason, if they used to wear the Puke Green and Yellow of the hated Packers, I for some reason can't throw those cats into that catagory........

    Call it stereotyping if you want, but at some point they did something while in PUKER land to cause my beloved Vikes to lose and I just can't let that go......

    Current crop....In the order of disdain.....

    a.
    Sharper - Freelancing, not team orientated butt head......
    b.
    Longwell -
    Yup, even has the kicker higher than Ferg.......
    c.
    Ferguson -
    Even though he has kindof grown on me (I watched the Vikes Bores re-air last night) he still is a PUKER in my book and needs to be beat out my Jaymar Johnson and sent packing......

    ;D ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I fell the same. Everyone that has been somewhat affiliated with the Packers will never make the top of my list. I know it's silly, but that's just how it is. I can't stand the obnoxious Packers.
    :-X

    ... However, don't get me wrong, I far from hate Sharper, Ferguson or any of those guys that used to play for the Packs. Actually, I fell more sorry for them
    ;D But they will always have this label on them saying: "FORMER PUKER"
