Jared Allen steps up as a quarterback during practice (GIF)


The Minnesota Vikings have bounced around with their starting quarterbacks this season more than anybody else in the league.

Last season Christian Ponder stepped up big time late in the season and helped the Minnesota Vikings reach the playoffs by beating the Houston Texans then going on to beating the Green Bay Packers in the last game of the season to help them reach the playoffs.

This season they’ve bounced from Ponder, to Cassel to signing former Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s quarterback Josh Freeman. We all knew this team was in trouble after how Freeman performed in his start against the New York Giants not too long ago. Now they’ve decided to roll with Ponder again even though Cassel picked up a big win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the UK earlier in the year.

Defensive end Jared Allen, who has always been a guy who would pull pranks on teammates, decided he would give the quarterback position a shot. I’m not sure if he was mocking someone, but I think he has a great chance at becoming Minnesota’s next quarterback if Ponder falls flat on his face.

Warning, this is pretty funny.
