Eller over Green, Butkus over Lambert by a mile, Browner in the same league as Lott, Derrick Thomas over Taylor, AD any day over Heyward. So those would be my choices.

I never watched Butkus and was very young for Eller...

I like Browner but IMO Ronnie Lott was one of the best hitters in NFL history at any spot.

I didn't add A.D. because we already have him.. It was more of a players I wish the Vikings
had.

Thomas is an interesting choice ... I know a lot of people think he might have been the best linebacker
in history if he would not passed early.

I saw the Steelers more because there was no cable or internet and we had three stations in those days.
The Cowboys and Steelers were always on.

Nitchke > Lambert/Butkus

Lott

Reggie White

Lawrence Taylor

Barry (Statistically the best to ever do it) though i guess if i had to choose a power guy id take either Jim Brown, OJ, or AD.

I'd start with a pair of steelers in Troy Polamalu and Hines Ward. Loved watching both of those guys play.

Night Train Lane and Earl Campbell are two physically imposing greats.

Iron head was fun, and I also liked Christian "the Nigerian Nightmare" Okoye.

I love Mike Singletary, despite being a Bear. Love Reggie White, despite being a Packer.

Its tough to choose 5. I like guys that blend some character with a unique style of play.

1. Polamalu
2. Singletary
3. Earl Campbell
4. Darrell Green
5. Reggie White

Those are guys who, if they had been Vikings, would have been among my all-time favorites.

Warrior of WWF (as I knew it) fame. Quick strike stab at humor, but I'm gonna move him to honorable mention.

Cortland isn't a fan favorite and lots of people/players seem to not stand him...kinda why I love him. He ruffles feathers with the best of them.

Ahh. I never watched wrestling much. I probably would have picked somebody like Brock Lesnar, though.
