Designing a flag that could put you on an NFL field

Posted by Darren Urban on July 12, 2012 – 4:26 pm

Perhaps you recall the move by the NFL last year, at the regular-season opener in Green Bay, to have every team represented by a flag held by a former player. In the Cards’ case, Ron Wolfley was given the honor. This year, though, it could be you in New York on that opening Thursday night.

The NFL is accepting flag ideas for each team from fans. Winners will be chosen and a flag will be developed for that team based on the concept. From the NFL:

— “Your vision is up to you. It can have elements representative of the city, the community, team traditions, the team’s fans, etc. … You will be required to describe your vision in essay format. Additionally, you have the option to upload an image depicting your design concept of your favorite NFL Team’s flag. Your image may be created in any fashion (i.e.: hand drawn, painted, digitally drawn, etc.). The image will only be used if your flag is a winning concept in order to assist our designers in carrying out your vision. The image will not be judged and therefore will not impact winner selection.”

The contest ends Saturday Sunday and as of now, I can promise there hasn’t been a ton of Cardinals entries — your chances are pretty good. So get to it. Click here for details.

Can you mock me?

Let’s leave the headline rhetorical for now, shall we?

The Cardinals’ mock draft contest (presented by Chevron) has returned (you can go here for details) and a correct guess of the Cards’ first-round pick will win someone  a jersey of that player and the chance to attend that player’s introductory press conference (maybe I should have you take pictures for me). Deadline to enter is April 22, so prepare your ballot.

Speaking of the draft, I am thinking about having a live chat soon on the site to talk about draft and all things Cardinals. Let me know in the comments what you out there in the cyberworld think of the idea.
