Jared Allen was a no-brainer to make the All-Pro team at defensive end. In fact Allen scored 49-out-of-50 votes, tying him with Calvin Johnson as the highest vote-getter. Aaron Rodgers got only 47.5-out-of-50 in being named All-Pro quarterback. So yeah, stick out your chest Viking Nation. We beat the Packers at something!
Jared making the All-Pro team isn’t really news. Much more interesting is the identity of the only other Viking who managed to snag a vote from the 50-member media panel. John Sullivan got one vote at center. Good job by Sullivan who has been steadily gaining in media buzz over the last few months. At least we know we have one good offensive lineman to build around.
