We just keep plowing our way through the numbers, folks

We’ve made it through another set of ten in our Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers series, as we have completed the 50s. Let’s take a look back at who was given the title of best player to wear each number in that group, with links back to all the stories.

#50: Jeff Siemon, LB

#51: Jim Hough, OL

#52: Chad Greenway, LB

#53: Mick Tingelhoff, C

#54: Fred McNeill, LB

#55: Scott Studwell, LB

#56: Chris Doleman, DE

#57: Mike Merriweather, LB

#58: Wally Hilgenberg, LB

#59: Matt Blair, LB

Not surprisingly, seven of the ten players in the 50s played the linebacker position. We did manage to get a couple of offensive linemen in there for good measure, as well as a defensive end.

This also means we’re over halfway through our numerical journey through Minnesota Vikings history. We will start off the 40s here in just a little bit with the number 49.
