The Minnesota Vikings

Minneapolis, Minnesota is home to the Minnesota Vikings, and has been since 1961. Many consider the Vikings to have one of the most colorful, if not the most colorful, team history of any team in the NFL. They have one NFL championship that they have won to their name and are the first team to play and to lose 4 Super Bowls. They have won their division 16 times however, and this ranks them as third among NFL teams to have done so.

Before 1981, the team played home games at Metropolitan Stadium. They have played The Americans tv show at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome since 1982. They were officially dubbed the Vikings on September 27, 1960. The name is supposed to reflect the fact that Minnesota is considered to be the The Big Bang Theory Season 9 dvd collection center of American culture that is centered on a Scandinavian heritage. The team's first head coach was Norm van Brocklin, who had just finished as a player with a high reputation having just defeated the Green Bay Packers in 1960 with the Eagles. Fran Tarkenton was their first quarterback and they won their first regular season game by beating the Chicago Bears with a score of 37-13 in 1961. Tarkenton began his career with a flourish by throwing four touchdown passes and running for another in that opening game. However, the first season did not end up with such a great showing as they lost the next seven games and finished the season with a 3-11 record. 1967 found quarterback Tarkenton traded to the New York Giants and a new head coach with Bud Grant. Van Brocklin had resigned after the NFL season of 1966. Grant was from the Canadian Football League and had a record of leading teams in Canada to Championships. It was during the 1960s that the Vikings became known with their powerful defense as the Purple People Eaters. It was with this defense that they won their first Central Division Title and a place in the playoffs for one of those years.

The Vikings had the best record in the NFL for 1969 with a 12-2 record. They had 12 straight victories which was their longest winning streak in 35 years. They went all the way to the Super Bowl that year and then lost to the Kansas City Chiefs with a score of 23-7.

In 1973 the team finished the season again with a 12-2 record and earned their second Super Bowl berth, Super Bowl VIII. Again the Vikings were defeated in the great game by the Miami Dolphins in Houston, Texas at Rice Stadium Falling Skies dvd set 4 to Miami with a score of 24-7.

1974 was pretty much the same with the Vikings winning the Central Division again with a record of 10-4. They made it to the big game again only to lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-6 in Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana.
They made it to the Super Bowl again for the 1976 season, this being their third try in four years, and lost again to the Oakland Raiders in Pasadena, California at the Rose Bowl. They The Knick dvd set 1-2 lost that game 32-14.

One of the biggest blunders that many say the Vikings have ever done was in 1989 when the Vikings took Herschel Walker from Dallas with a final result that Dallas got Emmitt Smith and Darren Woodson. Herschel did not really perform as well as the Vikings expected while Dallas won three Super Bowls in the 1990s with their prize draft picks of Smith and Woodson.

The Vikings are one of the most impressive teams to have ever graced a pro football field to have never won a Super Bowl. They have won 9 Divisional Playoffs, won 4 NFL Conference Championships, and lost 4 Super Bowls that many say they should have won at least one of. Many say they are due their day with the amount Master of None Season 1 dvd talent that graces the team on a constant basis. Maybe that is true. They play with heart and fire and surely that counts for something.
