Vikings ‘Not Groovy’ Under Van Brocklin

The mnvikingsblog.com will revisit the previous head coaching regimes of the Minnesota Vikings, starting with their first, former Rams and Eagles standout quarterback, Norm Van Brocklin.

Norm Van Brocklin was a very good NFL player. Unfortunately that did not translate into a lot of wins. His Vikings teams only experienced one winning season. Frequently at odds with his young quarterback, Fran Tarkenton, Van Brocklin lasted only 6 seasons. It was a tough era for an NFL expansion team as the 60s belonged to powerhouse teams like the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts, and Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers.

BEST TEAM: 1964, 8-5-1
TOTAL RECORD: 29-51-4
