Who are the best and worst quarterbacks in Minnesota Vikings history?
52 men have had the privilege of calling themselves quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings, if you only count players who have officially spent time on the regular season roster (sorry Joel Stave fans).
Some of those 52 quarterbacks have been great players whose exploits in purple will be remembered as long as people play football.
Some of those 52 quarterbacks have been…not great players.
A few of the 52 never actually threw a pass for the Vikings in a game, but still contributed in their own way to Vikings lore, either positively or negatively.
Some of the 52 are totally and utterly forgotten and frankly deserve to be totally and utterly forgotten.
Some of these quarterbacks thrilled us. Some infuriated us. Some inspired mere indifference.
Every last one of these men got to suit up for the Minnesota Vikings and at least stand on the sidelines holding a clipboard. And they should have been honored.
Or at the very least, glad to be pulling a paycheck.
