Quarterbacks No. 23 - 20

23. Brooks Bollinger (2006 - 2007)

In two seasons with the Vikings, Brooks Bollinger started one game for the purple and gold. In that contest (a 34-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers), Bollinger completed 61.5 percent of his passes for 176 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception.

22. Kelly Holcomb (2007)

In 2007, the Vikings acquired Kelly Holcomb from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick. Holcomb started a total of three games during the 2007 season and Minnesota wound up losing all of them, including a Week 7 loss to the Eagles in which he completed just 43.8 percent of his passes for 88 yards and one touchdown.

21. Donovan McNabb (2011)

The Vikings made a trade for Donovan McNabb during the 2011 offseason with the hope that he had at least a few drips left in the tank from his glory days with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Minnesota quickly found out McNabb had almost nothing left in his tank, and after leading the team to a 1-5 record in six starts, he was benched in a favor of rookie quarterback Christian Ponder.

20. Jim McMahon (1993)

Jim McMahon spent the prime of his career tormenting the Vikings as a member of the Chicago Bears. But in 1993, McMahon suited up for Minnesota and wound up starting 12 games.

He only threw for 1,968 yards and nine touchdowns during his 12 starts, but the Vikings were still able to post an 8-4 record in these contests.
