I would have to say my top 5 Starters are:


1. Hutchinson OG


2. AD RB


3. Kevin Williams DT


4. Jarred Allen DE


5. EJ Henderson LB
I would also have to say my bottom 5 Starters are


1. Shiancoe TE


2. Ryan Cook OL


3. TJack QB (Im sorry until he is more productive)


4. McCauley CB (sometimes starter last year)


5. Darren Sharper(I believe he will be the weak link this season)


























* Im sorry if offend any of your favorite players but I just feel that these are our worst starters. I do like Darren Sharper but I also feel he's a little overrated too.

This is projected to the end of the 2008 season:

TJack (YES, he will have an even better season than Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, leading the Vikings to the Super Bowl)

AP (he wins MVP and Super Bowl MVP)

Jared Allen (leads the league in sacks and wins Defensive MVP)

Ray Edwards (finishes second to Allen in sacks)

Vikings OL (they gell so well I said what the hell and threw them all in here pell mell)


HEY...it's preseason and a man is allowed to dream, ain't he?

MINNESOTA VIKINGS - SUPER BOWL XLIII CHAMPIONS :P

1.
Steve Hutchinson

Adrian Peterson
3.

hmm.. this is difficult!!

1. KWill
He is the core of that line
2. AD
amazingly talanted
3. Hutch
BEAST
4. Jared
He's gonna hurt qb's!!
5. Tapeh
he will open lanes truck drivers could use

should be here as well
CT
- solid, determined, and would be a starter just about anywhere else
PhatPat - nothing needs to be said.. a pro's pro
EJ H! - the driving force of the lb's
Chad/Leber - the right and left hand of EJ H!!
BB
a deep threat that can see the ball, run routes, and CATCH
Rice - up and coming..
Tjack - it all starts here!!

Vikings Top 5 Players

I can't pick just 5, so I won't pick any at all.

We're going to be that damn good.

purplepat

Adrian Peterson - obviously
Steve Hutchinson - obviously
Matt Birk - hard to argue considering his Pro Bowl history
Pat Williams - OK, not a pass rushing DT, but he's made it impossible to run between the tackles on the Vikes.
Jared Allen - Just appears to be a beast with a non-stop motor.
Look at his passes defensed for a DE.

Kevin Williams is a big honorable mention here.

HEY
05-27-2008, 08:54 AM
OK, I have been reading all the lists on here and to my HUGE surprise, I found FB Thomas Tapeh on a couple of the lists. To response, I simply have to have. WTF!!!!
What do you see in him? He wouldn't even make my top 15 list* cause from what I've seen, he's not that good. If we still had Tony Richardson, then maybe I would put our FB in top 5.

Hutchinson
Peterson
K. Williams
Allen
E.J. Henderson
P. Williams
Sharper
Winfield
M. Williams
McKinnie
Birk
Berrian
Taylor

Players that have actually earned it IMHO....

5. Joey Browner (Still a HOF'r in my book
;D)
4. Ron Yary
3. Paul Krause
2. Allen Page
1. Fran the Man

Current players who could earn the rep....
5. Kevin Williams
(I still question his production of late.
Hopefully the addition of JA will alleviate those concerns)
4. AD
(Given the time and his health, he will be the best ever)
3. Birk (The man could play in his day.
To bad it is almost over)
2. Hutch
1. Sharper (He is still to pukey green for my liking but has demonstrated over the years he is due)

You're totally right, marstc09! I guess I didn't read the question really well.

Sorry, my bad! However, I still don't think Tapeh is in the top 5 in the NFL, not even in the top 20.
Here's my list of the best Vikings players that I believe is in the top 5 at their position (in order of how high they rank):
1.
Steve Hutchinson (best guard there is!)
2.
Kevin Williams (maybe the best...)
3.
Adrian Peterson (second after LT)
4.
Jared Allen (in top 3)
5.
Pat Williams (getting old and slow, but he is the best against the run)

Other players that I believe is in the top 5 at their position:
McKinnie (c'mon guys, he may struggle sometimes, but he is still one of the best tackles overall)
Birk (may have seen his better days however)

Well, limiting it to top 5 NFL guys does narrow down the selection some...I've been thinking its going to be hard to pick a top 50 players out of our 80 in camp! ;D

If it was last year, Tony Richardson might be tops of my list, so I hope you guys are right about Tapeh!

I guess I'm going to have to go with the obvious top four,
AP, KWill, PWill, JA and then that next one is harder...I'm thinking Chester Taylor, best backup in the league
;D

But, EJ Henderson might make the list next year.
I'd love to put some of our OL there, but, I still think they're a tad short performance wise as a unit vs. their high pay and the expectations that come with it.

Other Future possibilities...further down the road?
How about Rice and TJack?

Yeah, I gotta go with this one as well.
EJ is my favorite player on defense out of the entire league, hopefully he'll make the list after this season.

The five best players compared to other players at their position are:
1. Steve Hutchinson - No debate from most experts, the best Guard in the game. Three time All-Pro.
2. Kevin Williams - Almost universally considered the top DT in the game right now. Back-to-back All-Pro seasons.
3. Jared Allen - Most would rate him as the best pure pass rusher in the game, none would rate him outside of the top three. All-Pro in 2007.
4. Adrian Peterson - Hands down the most exciting player to watch in the ENTIRE NFL next season. Right now might not be ranked the TOP RB, but he is in everyone's top three or four. Pro-Bowl MVP in 2007.
5. Matt Birk - a six-time Pro-Bowler and widely regarded as one of the best at his position in the league. Seemed to have slipped a little last season, but still leads one of the best lines in football.

Funny that 4 of those 5 are arguably the best at that position.

Hey guys,

I don't post here much, but here are my top 5.

1. Steve Hutchinson
2. Kevin Williams
3. Adrian Peterson
4. Darren Sharper
5. E.J. Henderson

I didn't include our free agents, because they haven't play a down for us. So I will wait a year before I put them in my top 5. Don't know how many of you will care or read this but this my 2 cents worth.

You seriously think McKinnie is one of our top 5 players? Mckinnie is over-rated. Mckinnie half asses plays, and is has no quickness to keep up with the Defensive Ends.

You do realize there are 32 starters right. He is definitely in the top 20. Can you even name 20 of them. I can't. I tried searching but could not find FB rankings.

AD
P Will-K Will (counting as one is a good idea IMO)

JA

there is debate on the last spot..

B-Mac, Winfield, Sharper, Kluwe...

I think all of these are arguable. but can we all agree on the top 4?
