All-Time Favorite Viking : John Randle, his trash talkin on the field is classic.

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : 2, 3 years ago when they got smoked by Cincy, and 4 years ago on monday night when they lost to the colts by a fg with 3 seconds left.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Vikings/Packers when Moss mooned(or motioned) the crowd.

What got you into the Vikings : I met Warren Moon when he was playing for the Vikes, got an autograph. Super friendly guy.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : RB Micheal Bennett, maybe he didnt suck totally, had a couple decent years for us. Living in big 10 counrty seen him play a lot vs IU, Purdue, etc. Loved his speed and vision, thought he'd be great with the Vikes.

And yes, I liked the Williamson pick at the time. And I thought Tice completly used him wrong route-wise. But he sucked, and I wont comment anymore about that. :-)

All-Time Favorite Viking : John Randle, quickly becoming kevin williams(i like the fatties)

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : Being 7 hours away, it's kinda hard to get to many games, but i have been to a few...


Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Moss's mooning. nothing like giving it back to the pack

What got you into the Vikings : My father. He's been a vikes fan since the inception, so it just followed suit

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Daunte Culpepper. He had the size and strength to be good, and for a while it looked like it would come true, but then moss got traded, and we saw his real talent level

Age : 18

Location : Sioux Falls, SD

All-Time Favorite Viking : Fran Tarkenton
Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : Yes. This year actually. Saw the Vikes beat the Packers by one point. It was my first game.


Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : When Moss mooned the Pack

What got you into the Vikings : My dad who lived in Bloomington

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Troy Williamson. I was excited to see his blazing speed. And then I quickly found out that he couldn't hold on to the ball. :(

The Dynasty 12-31-2008 01:18 PM

Age : 19

Location : New York, South of Buffalo

All-Time Favorite Viking : Cris Carter, Always been a Fan of the Wide Receiving position and when i started liking the vikings he was the main WR.

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : I think ive been too around 4 or 5 games. 2 Regular Season and 3 Preseason. 4 of them were in Buffalo but one Summer I made it out to see the Vikings in the Metrodome for a preseason game against the Chargers, I had tickets right near the Tunnel so i got to see all the players come out, I almost caught gloves from a player but they were thrown to short. This was the season after Moss got traded so Culpepper was still there.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Probably last year, When Adrian broke the record for most yards in a game. It was just fun to see it and knowing how special he could become.

What got you into the Vikings : When I was little my aunt would watch my brother and cousin and I. We would play Tecmo Superbowl on the NES and They were always the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers, So my cousin told me to be the Minnesota Vikings because they were a good team and Ive liked them ever since.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : I would have to say Troy Williamson, Just after trading moss. I wanted a guy who could replace him and then i saw Troy's speed it made me want the vikings to draft him, But I also wanted to trade up for Braylon Edwards. I was happy we drafted him in 2005 but now Im wishing we didnt, atleast we get a 6th for him haha.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : I liked the playoff game at Lambeau in 2005.

What got you into the Vikings : My dad, he's been a Viking fan as long as I can remember and had more influence on me than my mom (A Packer fan).

Well Rep is just people giving it too you. I mean most of my rep is coming from Signature Making that I have done for people. Most people use rep for a good post or something funny.

Age : 21

Location : Minneapolis, MN

All-Time Favorite Viking : Cris Carter or John Randle

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : around 5 or 6 games.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Any win against the Packers. I was at one probably 6 years ago when Bennett ripped off like a 85 yarder or something against them, and that was bad ass.

What got you into the Vikings : Grew up in WI, but on the boarder, and while everyone was cheering for the Pack, I was the sole guy rocking the Purple People Eaters.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Either E. James or Bennett

marshallb 12-31-2008 04:55 PM

Age: 16

Location: SE Minnesota right along the Wisconsin border and about an hour north of the Iowa border.

All-time favorite Viking: Randy Moss

Have you ever been to a Vikings game?: no, I don't have the means to and my dad is too cheap to buy tickets.

Favorite Vikings game: Moss mooning the Pack.

What got you into the Vikings?: My dad is a big Vikings fan, and I watched all the games with him when I was young, and it just grew from there.

Favorite draft pick who ended up sucking: Either Erasmus James or Troy Williamson. I thought James would be a stud, and I really liked Williamson's potential. Injuries were part of what derailed James's career, and Williamson just didn't have the hands, I don't know if it was concentration, small hands, or what, he just couldn't catch.


Also Dynasty, would you mind making me a sig? Preferably one of Pat and Kevin with "The Williams Wall" wrote on it. Here is the picture I would like:

Also ZOD, I got most of my rep from doing mock drafts.

Location : Las Vegas, NV

All-Time Favorite Viking : Randy. Although 69 is growing on me.

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : I haven't even been to the state. But hopefully next season I'll get to one.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : The game at Soldier Field last season, when AD broke out 224 yards and three scores, at the time a franchise record. I just loved how he took it to the Bears!

What got you into the Vikings : Randall Gene Moss.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Michael Bennett. I met him when he came down for the NBA All-Star Game. Real standup guy, helluva nice guy.

I was watching Vikings Weekly sometime last year and they had a segment on how Pat & Kevin didn't like the nickname "The Williams Wall". They had some sort of fan contest to come up with a new name. The winner was the "William Wrecking Crew". The guys gave the winner an autographed jersey & they said that they really liked the name since they are big WWE fans.

Not really saying anything, i just think about it everytime i hear someone call them the "Williams Wall".

The_Dude 12-31-2008 11:10 PM

Age: 30

Location: St. Paul suburbs

All-Time Favorite Viking(s): Randle McDaniel, Joey Browner, John Randle, Antoine Winfield, Jared Allen (yes, he has already endeared himself to me as one of my favorites)

Been to Vikings Games?: Yes, plenty. My father-in-law has season tickets (sec 131, row 5, seats at the end of the row) ~ i get to go to at least 1 game a year, but i have been able to get to 2 or more each year for the last 2-3 years.

Favorite Vikes Game: 1998 (?) Monday Night game in the rain at Lambeau. Cunningham, Carter, Reed, & Moss tore up the GB defense. I was living in Madison at the time & lived with very upset Packer Backers.... one of them threw a shoe at the tv... priceless!

What got you into the Vikings: Birth!

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended Up Sucking: None... but man, that 2005 Draft was Fantastic!!!!

All-Time Favorite Viking : Cris Carter/John Randle

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : Hmmmm...I'd have to estimate but I'd say it's around 5.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : 2005 Playoff game at Lambeau

What got you into the Vikings : Hometown team.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Onterrio Smith. He was so talented, too bad he was such a moron.

Crazy_Chris 01-01-2009 05:32 PM

Eh well as you all can see my name is Chris, I am 21, and I currently live in Locust Grove Virginia. My all-time favorite Viking player would have to be the great Alan Page. Unfortunately I was not alive to be able to watch him play but after watching John Randle and seeing how dominating he was I can only imagine what kind of nightmare Alan Page was for opposing offenses. Also Adrian Peterson is quickly moving up the ranks of the all-time favorite Vikings.

I actually have never been fortunate enough to go to a vikings game yet but I will one day. I don't think I can narrow it down to 1 favorite vikings game but the three games would be the playoff game @ lambeau in 2004 and Adrian Peterson's 200+ yard game against the bears in Chicago, and of course Adrian Peterson's record breaking performance against the Chargers.

What got me into the Vikings is just the fact I am from Minnesota. My favorite draftpick that ended up sucking would probably be Micheal Bennet he had a good start and got me excited for his potential. However we all know how the story ends with him.
