Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament: Jim Marshall Advances

Manny Rubio-USA TODAY Sports

There were quite a few kickers in the field in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament. . .five of them, to be exact. Four of them have been taken down thus far in pretty decisive fashion, and the Minnesota Vikings' current kicker was no exception.

Jim Marshall put a pretty sizable beatdown on Blair Walsh in their first round match-up. When everything was finished, Marshall wound up with 181 "recs" from our readers, while Walsh could only manage 8 "recs." While Jim Marshall's Hall of Fame credentials are up for debate. . .at least, they were in the thread for the match-up. . .it was pretty clear that he's one of the greatest Vikings of all time, and the fans easily moved him forward.

Marshall's win sets up a second round match-up between two hard-nosed, long-tenured Vikings, as Marshall will do battle with linebacker Scott Studwell in the Round of 32.

The first round is nearly over in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you to everyone for your participation so far, and we hope you continue rec-ing your favorites going forward.
