It’s Monday, which means that Pro Football Talk is back tonight on NBCSN. Which means that the Mt. Rushmores will be unveiled for the Vikings and the Lions.
The race is essentially settled in Detroit, with one certain legendary running back appearing on virtually every ballot that has been submitted.In Minnesota, there’s a close race for first place between Fran Tarkenton and Adrian Peterson. Tarkenton will appear on Monday’s show to help us draw lines between Vikings eras.
And while several fan bases have demonstrated so far a keen appreciation of history, plenty of you forget that Vikings defensive tackle Alan Page (who has served for years as a member of the Minnesota Supreme Court) was the first defensive player named NFL MVP, and only the second to win that honor in history, along with Lawrence Taylor.
If you haven’t cast a ballot yet for Minnesota or Detroit, you’ve got about eight hours left. And while the voting has been strong to quite strong, the Vikings and Lions and lagging behind the Packers.
