On this episode of Two Old Bloggers , what we saw in the Vikings vs 49ers game with position battles on the line was telling. So much so that this morning as this is getting posted, the Vikings announced a trade with the Raiders for backup quarterback Nick Mullens. All is good now, right? Is it time to R-E-L-A-X, as Aaron Rodgers put it? SKOL!

Mond, Mond, Mond

Why should you listen when you have results? Because after yesterday’s game in which the Vikings played the Raiders in week 1 of the preseason, there was some movement in the competition at various spots.
