    Good find Sing, thanks.
    Maybe I am reading into it to much.
    But, the Redskins went 3-0, and the Vikings went 0-3 in the replacement games.
    The Vikings lost the NFC Championship game to the Redskins at Washington.
    Without the replacement players in the first 3 games maybe the Vikings would have been hosting the Skins at the Dome.
    The Vikings would have won the Super Bowl that year.
    I know, it is a reach.
    But in light of the dismal season we are in the midst of now it never hurts to dream.
    Maybe we would be better off to pray.

    If we did win... would we want to be known for the team that lost 4 superbowls and the only one we could win was the strike year superbowl?
    I think that would sit as well as the 4 we lost.
