The Purple People Eaters hooked me on this team. I took my son to his first pro game in the playoffs against the Eagles. Next generation of Viking fans, check.
Gary Anderson's missed field goal in the 1999 NFC championship game? Twelve men in the huddle in the 2010 NFC championship game? Darrin Nelson failing to hold onto a pass at the goal line during the 1988 NFC championship game? The aint's* bounty game? The debacle in the Meadow Lands? I would really like to see the Vikings make it to a Super Bowl before I'm to old to care.

Give Flipping Simpson a Grade for his opening game with the Vikings.

If I have it correct, Simpson had 4 catches for 50 yards to lead the team and two long pass interference calls. I was hoping for a breakout game of the ages as in Moss's rookie year. It didn't turn...
