Minnesota Vikings' Players and Their Secret Cartoon Character Identities
After day one of the NFL Draft, I decided I'd watch a little Family Guy marathon. The episode contained "Tom Brady" recruiting Peter to play for the New England Patriots. If you haven't seen the episode, I highly recommend it.
The way Peter plows over defenders got me thinking, "What Vikings player does Peter relate to the most?"
Maybe Adrian Peterson on one of his routine touchdowns sprints or Steve Hutchinson blocking the way for Peterson.
Well, here is the list that contains several Vikings stars and their secret cartoon identities! ENJOY!
Bernard Berrian: Road Runner
He only has two gears, fast and faster.
Once this guy sees an opening, he's gone. When that Wile E. Coyote is trying to bring him to the ground, Road Runner makes his trademark "BEEP BEEP!" sound, and he's off for the races. Don't worry, he'll write you a postcard and send you his love.
The way he can stop on a dime to elude Wile E.'s clever tricks makes him nearly impossible to bring down. Not even that rocket from ACME is able to catch him!
Tarvaris Jackson: Scrat
He shows signs of promise at times and appears to be on the right track. Then he turns right around and causes some huge disaster, like an Ice Age meltdown.
He's still trying to find all his acorns, but they keep eluding him. Maybe someday he'll finally get them. For now, he just has to keep searching and hopefully one day he'll be able to live a free life away from all those huge disasters.
Antoine Winfield: Tweety Bird
Don't let his small stature fool you. He's usually very calm, but when this guy gets mad, he literally flies all over and can perform some of the nastiest hits to any cat that comes his way.
Just because he doesn't look dangerous doesn't mean he can't hurt you. He will go under your legs if he has to. He will find that pesky cat and give him a good chop to the head.
E.J. Henderson: Superman
While kryptonite is lying by his foot, he's nearly useless. All he can do is watch while all those robbers get away.
But you just wait. When he gets rid of that kryptonite, he will be able to fly once more, tackling those baddies and throwing them to the ground where they belong.
He hits hard and has a nose for the bal...I mean, criminal activity. Wherever there is crime, you can expect Superman.
Adrian Peterson: Tasmanian Devil
Get in this guy's way, and he'll make you pay big time. He'll make you feel silly in space and will turn you upside down, literally.
Taz gets injured quite a bit, but that's typical of any Looney Toon. Don't worry though; it only takes a quick hop, skip, and a jump before he's back at 'em.
Taz has that rare combination of strength and speed that makes him an asset that you can't afford to get rid of. Though you can't understand what he's saying sometimes, you can bet that it has something like, "You're going down."
Jared Allen: Foghorn Leghorn
He is perhaps one of the funniest cartoon characters there is. His little strut after he's accomplished some great feat is perfect: "Let's a-rope, I say, I let's a-rope that cowboy down!"
His canine nemesis is always trying to get him, but Foghorn always one-ups him by slamming his fragile body against a giant wood plank.
That dog just doesn't know when to quit though. He keeps getting up, only to get hit back down to earth.
"I say, now I say I'm a-gonna put a whoopin' down on that there boy. He's about as sharp as a bowling ball!"
Pat Williams and Kevin Williams: Shrek and Puss in Boots
They are the ultimate team.
One one hand, you have the massive green monster that cannot be stopped by any of Farquaad's minions. He would rather "settle this over a pint," but those minions know better.
Instead, they get all offensive trying to drive Shrek away from Farquaad, but his massive body just sits there. Any would-be escape route for Farquaad is gone. The only thing in sight is a 300-plus pound wall of green flubber.
Puss is more of the finesse attacker. Sure, he has the strength to pull any stunt off, but he would rather just toss those minions aside and give them a good swing of his mighty sword.
He's much more agile than his counterpart. He's a lot quicker than many of his opponents as well. This gives him the ultimate edge. He also has that wicked cute smile that would stop any invaders in their path to glare in awe. This, in turn, only causes those poor souls to get trounced on.
The unfortunate side of all this—Puss was caught once with that "catnip" by the guards of the castle. Shrek also seemed to be involved in this operation. Let's hope things go their way so that they can continue to drive back those damn minions and get to their ultimate goal, Lord Farquaad.
Steve Hutchinson: Peter Griffin
It is true. This guy is as close to Peter Griffin as anybody. If you've seen the episode, you can relate.
Peter's knowledge of football is limited to doing one thing—blocking. Peter does whatever people tell him to do. As soon as the ball is snapped, Peter is off for the races, and nobody can touch him.
His big round body causes people to just bounce off of him. He is the best at what he does, block. There is no one better!
