  1. The 1969 Vikings were selected the best team in franchise history in a recent article.
    ESPN is really inconsistent with its selections. On one hand, they went back and selected a team from the ’40s for Cardinals as its best but on the other hand, they ignored two AFL championship teams for the Oilers/Titans for the top spot. Even worse is that while they put the 1947 team as the best and thought seriously about the 1948 team, they ignored the 1974 and 1976 team and gave the nod to the 2008 team, which was 9-7 and gave up 426 points and made a miracle run to the Super Bowl. That club just got lucky and they were not as good as the 1974, 1975 and 1976 clubs.

    You’re thinking about the ’87 team that upset the Niners in the Playoffs.
    If you’re talking to me, I’m not talking about the Vikings because I’d rate all their Super Bowl losers as their top teams (Even over their 15-1 team that didn’t go anywhere). I was talking about the Cardinals.
