Yes, folks, CBS will broadcast nationally the Vikings vs the Jets at 8 p.m. Eastern time. We're gonna get national exposure! The Vikes are gonna make it a "hit" show and let this nation know what they can expect from the best NFL team this year. (Maybe even they'll quit yapping about TO for awhile) :roll:

Who is the CBS number one crew? is it Jim nantz and Phil Simms? are they callin the game?

It's CBS first game of the season so they will do they "NFC preview" the "AFC Preview", and once the 2nd and 3rd squads role in they will be talking about TO, Gates, benson, and of course Randy Moss.

I do wanna thank the FOX crew for making the 1st quarter of tonights game a "TO-Free" quarter.

Oh and I almost forgot, they will also be promoting their Fantasy special on CBS on Saturday....and countless promos for 60 minutes.

It will definately be nice to catch the game tonight... I got lucky that we had KC in our first game since des moines is is considered a KC market I got to watch that game as well. It was interesting to hear the KC announcers during that game. They still found a way to not really say anything about the Vikings and just talk about how this is the first preason game so all these mistakes, errors, and penalties should be expected out of KC.

Exactly why I hate national televised preseason games. The stupid announcers never pay attention to the game, once the starters leave the game. It basically then turns into NFL Total Access, with them talking about TO, Favre, and having sideline interviews with a ton of players, causing us to miss a lot of the game. And most of our interviews will be the same stupid questions, "can you win without Moss?", "can you pass/run the ball effectively without moss?", "how is it different with moss gone?", are you all secretly in love with moss like all us media guys/gals are?", "what do you think about TO?", and so on and so on.

Personally I think the most important part of the preseason games, is when the starters go out of the game. Depth is what wins championships in this league and if you don't have it, you just don't win a super bowl. God play by 2nd and 3rd stringers, shows depth. I like to watch the young guys out there, trying to make plays and make the team. Guys who will be counted on to step in and preform, if a starter goes down. Yet we won't get to see/hear much about them tonight, because it is nationally televised.

I'm gonna listen to it on the radio, while I watch it on TV, so I can hear some analysis of the younger guys and hear guys that are actually paying attention to the game.


And I can't believe NO had their starters out there well into the 3rd quarter last night. Man Jim hasslett is an idiot. I can't believe he still has a coaching job.

does anyone know whether NYJ or MV is the favorite to win? Does anyone know the vegas odds? I was looking for it in the usual places (Espn,NFL, CBSsportsonline) and couldn't find it. Maybe this isn't done for preseason games?

I live on the left coast so I had to get off work early on this friday, I'm really bummed about leaving work early, really I am, just so I can get home and watch the kick off. I've got beer, GOOD beer, not that yellow water crap, and pizza. I'm set.

Oh yeah, and I splurged for the NFL Sunday ticket this year :) don't get a lot of Vikes games in Seattle. I used to get more Vikes games when I lived in Anchorage. SKOL!!

what kind of beer do you have at the ready?

I've got a 6-pack of Dale's Pale Ale for the weekend. It was just voted best domestic pale ale in a non-random blind taste test conducted by people who work for the NY Times. Anyway, it's good and hopsy, and a local brew that I like to support.

thanks for that, good to note the source too (doh!). I am surprised that the Jets are the favorites, but then again, it's not by much.

Yeah, it would be tough to make a spread in the preseason since it could be something like last night when the Saints had their starters in against the third stringers....throws all the odds out of whack.

Does anyone else HATE joe buck??????!!! He was on the saints game last night...that guy is a Fagg0t. How he was so disgusted with Moss' Fake Moon??? COme on...I'll put any amount of money says he drives a mini Van. Another one i hate is Chris Collinsworth. He used to verbaly Trash moss...then last year, he was all over his jock.

RE: Good beer for a good nationally televised game (and any other game) tonight I'm having a smorgasboard of Summer Blond, IPA, and will finish the fourth quarter with a black porter. they're all made by Full Sail which is a local micro brew here in the Seattle area.

I love the micro brews.

Go VIKES!!

I think I might be the only person who actually likes cris collinsworth, at least I am the only one that will admit it. FOX's pregame show just hasn't been the same since he left it and I like him as an announcer too, but can't really explian why. He is about the only announcer on FOX I like. Moose and Troy Aikamn really suck, as does joe buck, who should stick to baseball games. I don't like Baldinger, who does the local vikes games either. He is a meathead who doesn't know what he is talking about half the time.

For the most part, I like the CBS announcers.
