It was a match-up that I didn't expect to be particularly close in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament. . .and, quite frankly, it met my expectations.
Carl Eller put a pretty good beat down on Jake Reed to move on to the second round of our tournament. When everything was totaled up, Eller had received 146 "recs" from the Daily Norseman faithful, compared to just 9 "recs" for Reed. While Reed was a great receiver in Vikings' history, he couldn't stand up to the Hall of Famer.
Eller will move on to battle Joey Browner in the second round of our tournament. Browner moved on by defeating Randall Cunningham by a significant margin in their first round encounter.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more match-ups and results from our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, ladies and gentlemen. We're approaching the end of Round 1, and the action should really start to heat up going forward.
