In a truly pitiful Monday Night Football game, the Vikings debuted quarterback Josh Freeman and helped lead the Giants to their first victory of the season.
Tasked with providing game highlights, perhaps ESPN's Scott Van Pelt said it best: "Let's just be honest, you just spent three hours of your life doing that. You can't get it back."
While Vikings fans spent most of Monday night groaning on social media, a terrible game is ideal fodder for snarky Tweets. Here's what a few notable names on Twitter had to say about the game.
@ChrisWarcraft AP has as many rush yards as his number! You get a prize for that!
@nickkroll This Vikings/Giants game is one of the better match ups in high school football this week.
@MikeAndMike Do you think Leslie Frasier said after the game "You know I really saw this one coming…" - @Espngreeny #Freemanlookedgoodinpractice
@SageRosenfels18 Having played for both of these franchises when they had Super Bowl caliber teams, let me say that this game is hard for me to watch too.
@CharissaT Breaking News: after watching this game McNabb is coming out of retirement
@SportsCenter "Minnesota does not look good at all right now." - Jon Gruden
@NFLRT What do you get when you combine the size of Roethlisberger, the instincts of Sanchez, and the accuracy of JaMarcus Russell? Josh Freeman.
@thesuperstar68 Looking at Frazier on the sideline, I would swear he had zero say in Freeman starting tonight! The GM set this kid up for failure. Bad move
@SportsCenter "I'm all for opportunity, but midway through the 3rd quarter, he couldn't beat a little league team." - Cris Carter on Josh Freeman
