The first of our two match-ups in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament from Wednesday, based on the seedings, has to be considered a bit of a mild upset, as it saw our first double-digit seed to advance to the second round. In what was a fairly close race for most of the time it was on, an underrated wide receiver from the Minnesota Vikings' glory years managed to get past one of the heroes from today's squad.
Ahmad Rashad defeated Chad Greenway in their first round match-up in our tournament. By the time we tallied everything up, Rashad finished with 121 "recs," while Greenway managed 89 "recs." If we asked this question in a few years, the results may be a little different. But, as it stands now, the man formerly known as Bobby Moore moves on to the second round.
In that second round, Rashad will face a slightly more prominent wide receiver in Vikings' history, that being Randy Moss. Moss moved on by crushing Paul Allen in the tournament's first match-up.
We will have two more match-ups for everyone to vote on starting on Friday morning at 8 AM Central time.
