    I really respect Mr. Tarkenton.
    I don’t think the Packers were ever able to tackle him.

    Tarkenton was my favorite QB in the 70’s but his memory is flawed on the details of the past. For example he said the Vikings beat the Dolphins the year before and the year after they lost to the Dolphins in the Super Bowl. Nope… they lost to them the year before and didn’t play them the year after.

    Secondly, the Vikings weren’t down 14-0 in the SB against the Dolphins before they ever got the ball on offense because of an onside kick. They gave up a TD to go down 7-0 and then went 3 and out and punted.

    And he’s certainly mistaken about the Vikings having the better team and it wasn’t -1 when the played the Rams in 74 or in 76. It was cold (28 degrees in 74 and 19 in 76) but no where near that cold.

    I’m a Vikings fan but lets not rewrite history to make excuses.
