The Minnesota Vikings are a patriotic organization as well.  Every game played on or near a patriotic holiday featured a player bringing out the American flag and waiving it proudly.  In the past, that player was usually Jared Allen.  With Jared moving to the windy city, the Minnesota Vikings will have to find a new player to carry the flag.  Here are a few options that the team should consider:

  • Adrian Peterson – This is the obvious choice.  Peterson is the face of the organization and a proud American.  He has a fantastic work ethic and is a great example of working hard to achieve your dream.
  • Harrison Smith – Harrison Smith may only be entering his third NFL season, but he’s already gained recognition as one of the hardest hitting safeties in the NFL.  He’s tough as nails.
  • Teddy Bridgewater – Surprisingly, Bridgewater still has a lot of skeptics and a show of patriotism like this could help convince folks that he has enough charisma and personality to be be a leader on and off the field.
  • Brian Robison – This is the logical choice.  Robison will be the new featured pass rusher.  He loves so many things that America offers, such as fishing, hunting, and the outdoors.  A blue collar personality like his would represent America well.

  • Dmi Dru

    I’ll be one carry the flag.

  • Luke Hartzell

    I say Harrison, he just seems like the right guy to do it

  • JoeyVikes

    Robison or Smith …SKOL AMERICA!

  • Timothy Solum

    Bring In a Retired Marine that fought in Fallujah to lead the Vikes on to the field…real men worthy of carrying that flag who fought hard and pushed on through the worst of situations.

    • Bob T

      Wow Too beautiful.

  • Stryker

    To piggyback off Timothy’s comment. They should find several Minnesota Vet’s and select one guy for each home game to honor the country and the military! Maybe invite several members of his family to sit on the sidelines during the game as well.

    • Timothy Solum

      That’s a good idea too. I had meant to type battle hardeded Marines, not the singular.
