    Ahhhh Willie. I wonder what would have become of him if he wouldn't have blown the knee.
    Why? Didn't he blow his knee in his 4th or 5th season? He had his best year as rookie, and did as close to nothing as possible between then and his injury. Sacks, picks, tackles, forced fumbles, goose eggs across the board aside from the anomalous "1."
    Just checked wiki to make sure I was membering right....

    Drafted in 02, blew the knee in 05. 2 years or so isn't that long of a spell to count him as a bust.
    02, 03, 04 with his best season as a rookie? 68 tackles and 1 interception in 3 years, with regression after the first, at safety. He didn't play that much though... regardless, he's on my list.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not questioning him being on your list.

    I am just remembering a player I thought really had potential that wasn't really ever given the chance.
    Sure you're not thinking of Willie Howard?

    =Z=
    Naw, I didn't like the Howard pick.

    Feel free. He isn't the first Vikings player I was unhappy with. Sure he won't be the last.

    4) Troy Williamson...dude can't catch a cold and makes more than virtually all of us :huh:
    The thing about Williamson is that he might be the worst DRAFT PICK the Vikings have ever made, but is he really the worst player?

    I'm not sure if he's even the worst WR the Vikings ever had.

    Here's a quick list of WRs they've had who, I believe, are worse than TWill:
    Eric Guliford
    Todd Lowber (that's for Prophet)
    Robert Tate (originally a WR before they converted him into a crappy DB)
    Billy McMullen
    Bethel Johnson
    Jason Carter
    Keenan Howry
    Alfred Jackson
    Nate Jaquet
    Yo Murphy
    Martin Nance
    Olanda Truitt
    Buster Rhymes

    And so forth.

    =Z=
    Fair point indeed. However, I listed him about number 9, given all of the shitty LBs I listed...with the worst player, WR Mardye McDole, topping my list.

    That said, your list is quite impressive, ending with one of the all-time Viking idiots, Buster Rhymes...when hit with a snowball at Oklahoma, Rhymes ran to his room and came back outside with his Uzi...firing it in the air (can you say RED FLAG???). In 2004, he was busted for Carjacking and posession of crack cocaine.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Gotcha on the first bit. I was 13 and a cognizant fan of the Vikings in '81, but I don't remember Mardye. Which should say something, LOL!

    Rhymes. What an amazing tool. All-time name team, however.
