Question about a photo

Post by arrowsmith » Thu Jan 11, 2018 11:19 am

Hello,

I'm a new member and I thought I would post this note here about a photo I saw on the St. Paul paper.

The photo is in this link and it appears to be an away game against the Arizona Cardinals. I don't recognize this player so it doesn't help me pinpoint when this came might have been. The uniforms look as if they are throwbacks but I don't remember that the Vikes ever had throwback uniforms on an away game. I'm probably wrong about this but does someone recognize when this game may have been?

I believe that's Chris Hovan, Vikings Defensive Tackle 2000-2004.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Yeah I liked Hovan but I think he lacked
the speed to shift gears on defense
