Announcing the Nominees For Vikings Mt. Suckmost

It’s time to announce the 12 nominees for Vikings Mt. Suckmost. The nomination process was a long and arduous one. Actually it wasn’t that long and arduous at all. You guys nominated a bunch of people and I filled out the list. I feel like we have 12 solid candidates. Below is the list of nominees. Everyone can vote for their four top guys. And when I think the carnage has gone on long enough, the top four vote-getters will be placed atop Mt. Suckmost. Sound good? Let’s get voting.

Derrick Alexander

Nototrious draft bust.

Bernard Berrian

One productive season and then became a turd. Horrible more for his attitude than his actual play.

Mike Lynn

GM who made the Hershel Walker trade. Was accused of racism by Joey Browner. Masterminded the idiotic Pecos River stunt.

Red McCombs

Cheapskate owner who nearly derailed the franchise.

Jarvis Redwine

Old school draft bust running back.

Wasswa Serwanga

His last name has become synonymous with backpedaling.

Fred Smoot

Would have been merely another horrible free agent signing had it not been for The Love Boat. That vaulted him into Bad Viking immortality.

Les Steckel

A one-year wonder. And I don’t mean wonder as in good. I mean wonder as in “I wonder why anyone thought this guy could coach.”

Dimitrius Underwood

Was drafted by Dennis Green, then flamed out and never played a down.

Troy Williamson

Was supposed to be Randy Moss’s successor. It didn’t pan out.

Herschel Walker

Was supposed to be the last piece of the Super Bowl puzzle. It didn’t pan out.

Spergon Wynn

The gold standard for quarterback badness. Christian Ponder has posted a couple passer ratings in Wynn territory.

    I don’t see Dan Zinski’s name on that list. Should be nominated for being the worst Vikings sports writer in franchise history.

    How is Buster Rhymes not on this list?

    I think it would be a little harsh to have Hershel Walker on there. With the exception of the 1500 he put up in ’88 (the year before MN) his stats in MN are right in line with every other year of his NFL career. Not to mention he isn’t the one who sold the farm to come to MN. That whole thing is Lynn’s fault not Hershel’s he did what should have been expected.

  • Adam

    Voted for Alexander because the alternative in that draft was Warren Sapp. That pick probably cost us a Super Bowl.
