Jeff Christy was a good center for the Minnesota Vikings. A very good one, as a matter of fact. But, when you're going up against a Hall of Famer in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, just being very good probably isn't going to be enough to push you through. And, in this case, it was not.
Chris Doleman absolutely demolished Christy in their first round match-up, a battle that saw Christy receive the lowest total of votes of any individual match-up yet. Doleman wound up with 141 "recs" from our readers, while Christy managed just 3 "recs." Again, Doleman is a Hall of Famer, and he was the pretty clear choice in this one.
In the second round, Doleman will take on the winner of a fairly interesting match-up that will pit wide receiver Anthony Carter against offensive tackle Gary Zimmerman.
