With the Conference Championship games wrapped-up and the 49ers playing the Ravens in the Superbowl . . . two former Vikings of HOF-caliber square off on opposite sides of the field. Which would you prefer earns the ring? Why?

NOTE: I specifically exclude Bryant McKinney from the options because he's not HOF caliber, nor do I expect him to stay out of the news for the next 14 days . . . Laughing

I think you should have included McKinnie on the poll. Laughing

I kind of wrestled with that . . . but what the heck, if Birk wins one, so does the McKinney.

Although it'd be awesome to see Randy go off for 8 catches, 150 yrds and 3 TDs in the SuperBowl, I think it would be more fitting to see Matt Birk raising the Lombardi.

He's been such a consistent workhorse and stellar player -- the best at his position for 14 years. Even with Sullivan growing into his own, I don't think he'd beat Birk at the position right now.

I don't like the fact that either of these guys was shipped/cut/walked from the Vikings, but business is business. I'm excited to watch the SB, as always, but this year will be a bit more intriguing.

Next year, ya never know, there could be a whole lotta Vikes getting rings. Cool

I would probably vote for Randy Moss, so McKinnie doesnt get a ring. He of all professional football players is least deserving to be on a super bowl winning team. That would just have to sting, for players like Cris Carter, Tony Gonzalez, etc, who busted there tails all there career for a bum like McKinnie to get something they never will.

I'm so impartial to who I want to see win the Super Bowl. However, I want Moss to have a ring.

49ers have always been my secondary team so I want them to win, but to answer the question...

Birk over Moss every day of the week.

Birk and Moss both deserve rings. So I'm going to go with the guy who will be in the Hall. Moss.

He is why I voted for Moss, at least in part.

I'm rooting for the Ravens for 3 reasons.

1. John Harbaugh seems alot more classy then Jim.
2. Matt Birk has always been a stand up guy and I still consider him "one of us"

3. Perhaps my biggest reason for rooting for Baltimore is that I wanna see if Bryant Mckinnie can literally break a scale after winning the Super Bowl. I seriously think 500 lbs is within reach for him.

I love Birk and Moss but I have to root for Moss since I wanted him to win a ring for years but if Birk win, I will be happy for him too, it is a win win

Randy Moss, and it isn't a question.
