Fenny and Nelson might have been a good enough backfield, if the Vikes had traded for a QB, instead of trading for HW.
The Vikes should have traded for Elway, Marino, Kelly, Montana, Young. They probably could have gotten one of those with what they gave up for Herschel.
None of those teams would have done that trade at that time for their QB. Except maybe for Steve Young, who was an abyssmal failure in TB. And if you think the Vikings trade of Hershel Walker would have been a fleecing...at least at that point he had established stardom. Young hadn't yet.
And there was no way we could have predicted his future success with the 49ers at that point.
But hindsight is always 20/20.
