Yup. Moss without question.

And not just because he was a freak talent.

I liked his personality. His back story. The way he gave balls to handicapped kids after scoring. His heart. His work ethic (mainly talking off season prep)

Didn't have a problem with squirting the ref, or Moon over Lambeau. Straight Cash Homey. He told it like it is...



This is my response as well. Second place isn't even close.

WOW I came to this thread expecting to see Moss haters and anybody but him. I too have Moss as my favorite and as much as I love many other players none of the rest come close. After Moss Chuck Foreman, Fran Tarkenton, Alan Page, Randall McDaniel are the first to come to mind. Moss Tarkenton and Foreman were just so fun to watch.

Bud Freakin' Grant.

Player-wise, tie between Page, Moss, McDaniel. Browner for shorter career.

Way to mention McDaniel. I thought I might be the only one.

I love watching athletic defenders that can wreak havoc on opposing QBs. If I was a little bit older, I would likely pick Alan Page. By the time I started following the team (around 1974/1975) I only got to see him in purple for a few years, and I was probably still too young to really appreciate his play.

Instead, I would say it's a player I enjoyed watching for his entire Viking career: John Randle.

I loved watching his aggressive play, getting QB sacks and lots of forced fumbles. Page had more sacks, but after watching replays of Randle and Page, Randle seems to have been more explosive on his hits and tackles, and his technique seemed better at causing fumbles too. Randle was also quite a character and I'll never forget the way he wore his eye black like warpaint to try to intimidate opposing offenses. I also loved the Nike commercial he was in too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Gc5psrFIQA. Still hard to believe that he went undrafted.


Wow so Page and Randall are 1-2 in sacks in NFL history for interior linemen.

Can't imagine why anyone would put Cunningham on a hated list.

He played his butt off here. Torched his arm in the process.

I still think, if DG had recognized the fact that RC's arm was done in the middle of the 3rd quarter (ATL)... and put in dink/dunk Brad for a couple of possessions - we would have won that game handily. Brad was exactly the guy you'd want to chew up the clock on long, slow drives and get you points on most of them. Dude was Steady Eddie if ever I've seen one.


for whatever reason around that time, i hated the eagles, and Cunningham had been their face for a long time...so i hated him....

which of course is why he had to play for the vikings...

just like mcmahon, favre, mcnabb.....yuck


freakin HATED mcmahon

Sir Francis

always..

Grant as a coach and Zimmer is overtaking Jerry Burns in that category..

If Zimm gets us a Superbowl.. He will overtake Bud Grant, but just barely..

Grant is a legend .

On defense, Always has been and will be the Honorable Allen Paige.

I owned and wore a # 88 mesh material jersey soo much that the silk screened numbers wore off and I repainted them back on by hand about 5 times from 1970 to 1976 when i joined the Navy and My mom threw it out...

I eventually forgave her....

Randle would be my 2nd - if it were a thread asking for top 1 and 2, or top O and D...


I have this memory, a bit foggy, might have been a Monday nighter against the Pack. They showed Randle on the bench with his coach and they were looking at a photograph of a play and it was essentially him against the entire offensive front...with Madden super imposing his thoughts over it like - guys, I'm doing all I can - where's the help!

Been tough to follow the winding definitions of what we're looking for here.
Most important or successful Viking?
Or the guy we'd want to have a beer with.

Fran changed the game of football. By far the most important Viking of my lifetime.
Moss picked up that torch nicely.
Page Marshall Eller Washington Gilliam, the Carters are easy choices for greatness.
Picked up by Millard and Doleman and Randle.
Bill Brown and Dave Osborn WERE guys you could have a beer with, made them special.
That torch was picked up by Senser and Kramer.
Personal favorites for me were always guys who were fringe players who gave us all hope we coulda played.
Sammy Johnson, Keith Nord, Bobby Bryant, Chris Walsh.
And that torch has been passed to Adam Thielen.
I also always loved our linebackers.

Let me guess, Duane, Bobby Bryant?

http://talkvikes.gorge.net/tm.aspx?m=1256

Edit...sorry, I didn't read on far enough - Tommy Kramer


Yep, Tommy was a bad ass 1 million percent Viking. Can't think of a single player that had more fire for the team, the game or the fans.

Yes, Todd, one.
His bodyguard (Joe Senser) was great at moving him along.
I get ya, he was slamming as many as possible, but it was one per jock-sniffing fan.

Tark, even though Kapp is the one that made me become a fan. Tark played much longer and took us to 3 SB's.

Randy Moss!

1998 was my favorite Viking Bonding year with my son! Randy Moss brought us a lot of memorable joy!

WOW I came to this thread expecting to see Moss haters and anybody but him. I too have Moss as my favorite and as much as I love many other players none of the rest come close. After Moss Chuck Foreman, Fran Tarkenton, Alan Page, Randall McDaniel are the first to come to mind. Moss Tarkenton and Foreman were just so fun to watch.


I love Moss. He was more fun to watch than any player I ever saw., Viking or other.

And I'm not sure why so many have a hard time picking just one favorite player. I loved so many but Kramer was and is mine. Watch the films. That dood could have handed out confidence to all takers and still had enough left to share with all their great grandkids.
