That is tough ... It is hard to select 50 of them for me ... I get to about 40 or so and feel like I am being forced to pick after that.

I know. I'm still trying to narrow it down from 60 to 50.

You don't have to pick 50. Just pick the ones you think deserve the honor (my list was less than 50) and then vote. My assumption is that they will pick the top 50 vote-getters and that will be the list.

Well yeah ... I only picked like 39 ... but I felt like I wanted to get to 50.

IMHO, it's not worth it to hit 50 if it means that I've soiled my vote by putting someone undeserving like Fuad Reveiz or Todd Steussie or Rickey Young on the team. Again - that's just my 2 cents on it.

It's kind of hard when you've only been alive for a little more than half the team's tenure. I'm still trying to narrow my list down, and I'll vote for some guys from before my time based on reputation alone. I'll definitely put Anthony Carter and Cris Carter on my list because they're the reason I converted from being a Bears fan. And Warren Moon because I want an excuse to wear his jersey again.

Fran Tarkenton did a good interview with Mark Rosen on KFAN as part of their 50 greatest Vikings deal they are doing gin relation to the Vikings top 50.

He made up for some of the crap he said last year about Favre. You can tell Tarky is a bit full of himself, but then again, most athletes are...especially the great ones. Probably part of what made them truly great. Wish I could have watched him play.
