You missed "The Steel Curtain" listed at the bottom of the results at 29% We're in third place. I also noticed it still takes another vote if you close the page and then re-open it.

I can't believe the 'Hogs' and the 'Fearsome Foursome' were ranked higher than the Purple People Eaters.

Great video.
Met Stadium was awesome.
One huge tailgate party.
Not a bunch of separate small lots.

Voted twice.
Still 3 percentage points behind America's Team, 19 to 16 percent.
Steel Curtain is way in the lead though with 29 percent.


The total votes are only 2760, so we're only a few hundred votes behind Steel Curtain.
Come on everyone, we can do this.
Vote!! Vote!! Vote!!

I just voted again 3 times..

Why?
Because the Purple People Eaters IS the greatest nickname in the NFL.
It certainly helps that they are going to rise again, in the year two thousand eight.

Not by the way you have it shown. You forgot the 1% for Air Coryell & you need to shift the percentages next to their respective teams. As you show in your post, Over The Hill Gang has 27% & PPE 26%.

And the Giants win the Super Bowl! Is this fair? Hell no!

I always liked the names PPE's, Steel Curtain and Fearsome Foursome...hated America's Team. I'm an American, and they were never my team.

I also love what Page used to say that he never knew what the name meant...were they purple and ate people, or did they eat purple people? LOL.

It is a good video. I remember the days. The officials called for a time out to clear the snow from the field marks in that one game. Reminds me why I'm a Vikings fan.

I also downloaded it to help me through any rough spots this season.

If you are voting on the NICKNAME itself then I really love the Purple People Eaters and The Greatest Show on Turf. Both are great plays on other known sayings and both perfectly fit the teams that carried them. I also must admit I like the name Monsters of the Midway. Sounds pretty good to me.

I'll agree, two pretty good nicknames for who they where and how they played...Not to get off topic but, for Offensive Lines, I've always liked the nickname
" The Hogs "

But when I first started to be a fan of the Vikings, and the " Purple People Eaters " where a group of Defensive linemen, who just happened to be my favorite team,
