CVG: Live Blog of The Vikings-Raiders Game
CYNICAL VIKINGS GUY here with a live blog of the Vikings-Raiders game.
6:55 PM: The NFL proves once again how they hate the Vikings and their fans by making us the last team to play a pre-season game. There is a lot riding on this game for new Vikings coach Brad Childress. In a recent NIGP poll, 28% are holding off to see what happens tonight before calling for Childress’ head. Childress is already on thin ice for failing to add a decent running back and a backup QB among other things.
Of course, what everyone is talking about is the return of the greatest wide receiver in Minnesota Viking history, Randy Moss. It is also a great opportunity for his replacement, Troy Williamson, to prove that he is better than the steaming pile of dung he appeared to be most of last season.
7:02 PM: Vikings win the toss and elect to receive! The season is starting off on the right note! This should bode well for the Vikes in ’06.
7:07 PM: Troy Williamson fumbles the opening kickoff. This season is over. Fire Childress now while we can still salvage something from the season.
