Credit to Dan Zinski at The Viking Age for having this one first.
Well, if Skip Bayless wasn't already going to be leaving ESPN for Fox Sports, the four-letter likely would have fired him for this slip up.
On First Take today, Bayless was debating the NFC North with Shannon Sharpe. Sharpe is one of many that apparently feels the Minnesota Vikings are going to. . .inexplicably. . .regress in 2016, predicting the purple and gold to go 9-7 in 2016.
Bayless then came charging to Minnesota's defense. He only predicted that the Vikings would be one game better than Sharpe said they would be, saying he thinks the Vikings will go 10-6 in 2016, but actually going so far as to say that they were going back to the playoffs again this season.
Yes, somebody on ESPN. . .Skip freaking Bayless, of all people. . .actually had something positive to say about the Minnesota Vikings. I don't know about you, but I feel kind of weird about this. I don't expect it to last or anything, but for now it's a new, strange, and different world we're living in, ladies and gentlemen.
