Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament: Mick Tingelhoff Advances

Manny Rubio-USA TODAY Sports

In a match-up between two great offensive linemen, our readers chose the man that had a long run of sustained excellence in purple and gold over a man who could have reached that level had his career not been cut tragically short.

Mick Tingelhoff cruised to a relatively easy win over Korey Stringer in their first round match-up in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament. The final vote totals showed Tingelhoff with 145 "recs" from our readers, while Korey Stringer could garner just 18 "recs." I thought it would be a lot closer than that, but it's really hard to argue with Tingelhoff's resume compared to the limited time that Stringer was a member of the Vikings.

Tingelhoff moves on to the second round of our tournament, where he will face a man that he got quite familiar with during Vikings practices in defensive tackle Alan Page.

The first round of our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament is in the books, ladies and gentlemen! The second round will kick off with two match-ups on Monday morning, so keep an eye out for those.
