Get Your 84 Jerseys Out

Image courtesy of Vikings.com

Welcome to mid-May of the NFL offseason when questionable topics are conjured up and all the hours of speculation doesn’t actually matter.

And to make matters worse, Drew Carey seems too busy with the Price is Right to finish the month by informing the masses of whose line it is…, anyway. Maybe a bit bold to assume the Vikings Territory readership can resonate with a Whose Line is it Anyway? anecdote, but the odds were to good to pass on.

Now that we have gotten that out of our systems, let’s get into a bit of the meaningless Minnesota Vikings speculation mentioned amidst the anecdotal mess above. Over the past several weeks the “Great No. 84 Debate” has flooded Vikings Territory, as the long-standing debate topic centered around if and when Randy Moss’ jersey should be retired has been a primary talking point on both the About the Labor Podcast and the VT Roundtable.

The discussion naturally set off a multitude of simultaneous arguments concerning other numbers — both available and retired — and I think it is about time someone sets the record straight.

And while I do believe this particular responsibility is better-served for a piñata given the strongly-worded disagreements that will inevitably follow, I hereby accept the honor of designating which Vikings players should be enshrined in franchise lore assuming a hypothetical in which all numbers are fair game.
