Of all the teams that have never won a Super Bowl, the Vikings are among the best.
Four Super Bowl losses, and plenty of NFC title-game losses and other playoff losses.
But bad teams don’t make it that far that many times, which means that plenty of good players have played for the Vikings.
The official Pro Football Talk on NBCSN Mt. Rushmore narrowed the best of the best to four: Alan Page, Adrian Peterson, Cris Carter, and Fran Tarkenton.
PFT Planet opted to omit the 1971 NFL MVP, electing Bud Grant to go with Peterson, Carter, and Tarkenton.
Fran led the way with 72 percent of the vote. Peterson finished with 68 percent. Grant had 52, and Carter had 48. Page finished fifth with 44 percent.
Watch the segment for more input from Pete Najarian (who once played for the Vikings), Ross Tucker (who didn’t), and Erik Kuselias (who has a Viking-sounding first name).
