Sometimes... I forget how much I loved the Vikings growing up
The mid-'70s group in these youtube weekly recaps were my favorite teams of all time.
Fran and Foreman were at the top of their game, and the PPE were still pillaging, all the time adding great young guys.
You can start on this one, and then skip around from there and find dozens of these weekly recaps during the '73, '74, '75 seasons

What I remember most was looking forward to each Sunday, and KNOWING we would do well.
We had a long stretch, that went on for years, where games in our division were easy locks.
And there was really no one we feared.
Football isn't like this anymore, with all the player turnover yearly. These were the best years of Viking football, as we established ourselves as one of the elites.
The further away we get from the SB failures, the less they sting. I look back at the elite athletes we had, and am thankful THAT was the team I got to follow as a youngster.
Truly  .... GLORY DAYS

Those are my thoughts exactly, Scott.

Here, you want to watch Cris Carter's 77th TD catch ?

Hint: it's one helluva catch !

Looking forward to this ....


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls sports journalist has authored a book on the first Minnesota Vikings team to go to the Super Bowl, which happened in the last year of the old National Football League before pro football's biggest merger.

"Last Kings of the Old NFL: The 1969 Minnesota Vikings" is Pat Duncan's first book.

It chronicles the team's journey in less than three years from being without a coach, quarterback or direction to becoming the last champions of a golden era in pro football.

"Last Kings" is told through narrative and interviews with more than 30 players, coaches and others.

Duncan grew up in Sioux Falls and has been a sportswriter, columnist and copy desk editor at the Argus Leader for nearly 30 years.
