Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our post-2021 revision of our top 50 Minnesota Vikings.
As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National Football League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Last year, the Vikings went 8-9 but did not make the playoffs. Two new players made the top 50, and one elevation took place.
As always, we present our top five, though there were no changes in this elite group:
1. Alan Page
4. Carl Eller
You can find the entire list here.
Safety, Harrison Smith, advanced four spots to #30.
Debuting is four-time Pro Bowl Linebacker, Anthony Barr at #44, who is currently a Free Agent, and unlikely to return to the Vikes.
Quarterback, Kirk Cousins, enters at #48.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
