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
It took me almost 4 months to find this post Scott. Well said my friend. How I remember those days!!!!
