The Vikings drafted Steve Dils in 1979, following a decorated college career at Stanford. As a senior, Dils won the Sammy Baugh Award as the nation's top passer (two years after future teammate Tommy Kramer won the same trophy). Dils played sporadically as a back-up during his first four NFL seasons, but after an injury knocked Kramer out for most of 1983, he started 12 games for the Vikings. The team went 5-7 under Dils, who established career highs across the board, including 2,840 passing yards and 11 touchdowns.
