Jared Allen?

94 posts in this topic

Just wondering your thought about him?

They said he was a hard worker and doesn't give up on plays but he hasn't done anything all year. Watching him play he doesn't get after the quaterback like i thought he would. When i watch him, he spends most of his plays going in like 2 yards, then sits there waiting for the QB to throw then tries to jump at it everytime instead of tryiong to get the quarterback.

i don't know if i'm the only one noticing this, but your thoughts?

I was one of the lucky who got to go to that game on sunday, I will say, prior to that game I was in agreement with you, but on Sunday, I am sure the lions off. line isn't great, but he was all over the place, he was on that QB that ended up running out of bounds, he didn't get a sack, but definately was in his face for sure. But I expected more out of him by now too!

I think Allen is doing great execept for his frist game. I think a lot of offenses are double teaming him , and setting the backs on his side of the field to block him. The rest Dline like, Kevin willams are "freed up" if you will. I just see allen being on the front raise the entire lvl of playing of the front 4. As to trying to get qb, I think it as if hes able to get to the qb or not, or making a play by tipping a pass. Vikings also been calling plays to have allen drop back into coverage. Allen also been rushing the Qbs quite a bit too.

I may be wrong but I thought he led the league in QB hurries.

Allen is doing a good job. Watch him on plays and see how many times he is doubled or held. The one to be a little more disappointed in is Ray Edwards. I hope Robison gets more time soon.

as in all stats,, there is a reason behind them. K.Williams 4 sacks has to say something of the others involved,, and I think Allen has more then his fair share of freeing up KW.

MOst teams cannont afford to play Allen straight up,, some tackles can, but not many. He may not be worth all the $$,,, but he's pulling his load and others are taking over.

I think after this week, Chicago gota put a back in there to help block KW. That means 1 more offesnive player that wont be recieving. They probably won't single block Allen, that would just be asking for trouble. That means we can blitz more or have stronger coverage...depdning on play calling. A good player affects the game more than just what plain stats tells ya.

I was at the colts game and he was all over Manning that game. He was constantly around Manning.

He's good but I don't think he's meeting up to a majority of the people's expectations. I wouldn't think we paid big for a guy that has a lot of "hurries" and very few sacks.

I agree with Mudcutter-He might not being living up to his previous year stats, but I think he still adds a whole new dimension to this D-line. Kevin Williams is getting loose a lot more often and Big Pat is his same old self. I just think he's getting a lot more attention and that leads to more space for the Williams Boys to operate.

I agree with team otter. It would be nice to see more sacks.

I feel he has had a great year so far. As has already been mentioned, offenses have to change schemes in order to slow Allen down. The Vikes pass defense has been greatly improved thanks to him.

He's been worth every penny we paid him...just ask Kevin Williams.

Its really hard to judge right now who have we played thats good?

Has he done any better that James or the others I cant rember the names of. To me he is not standing out as the money should expect. But hey, I didnt see last game I decided to fish untill Childress is gone. With this devision, witch should be easy, if they make it to the playoffs they will be wiped out the first game depending on if a central division backs into the playoffs and we end up playing them.And that will be a toss up.

Then I'm in the minority.

If you look at our defense as a whole, it has improved significantly since Allen arrived. He might not be getting the numbers, but if you look at the big picture it was money well spent.

Kevin Williams is going to have a career year because of Jarrod Allen

I agree with the Wadinator

Sacks aren't everything. He's still putting TONS of pressure on the quarterback, while relieving some of the pressure for the other defensive linemen.

never knew the whole defense is better just because of Allen's presence. There are other people on the defense that have improved to make it better, so it's not all on Allen

He doesn't have the sacks, but he's always buzzing the QB and knocking him around. He's making an impact.

Can you name them? Can you prove or disprove that Allen hasn't helped those "other players" improve. Our D seems way better than last year and it is virtually the same players on the field with the exception of Allen. I would say he is a great pickup, but you can't say that he's worth the money until he has a few more good seasons under his belt. And this season is far from over. We will see, but for now he seems like a great addition.

I agree Team Otter...he's good but he certainly hasn't been "amazing" so far.

I read a neat article in the Wisconsin Outdoor News about Allen going on a bear hunt with a WI teen that has leukemia. He seems like a really good guy. The NFL needs more guys like that in the league!

    •   Where did I say anything about entitlement for anything for anyone? Nor did I name any news agencies, so maybe you should answer your own questions.    Maybe your just upset because you've got snow to shovel and I don't.
    • Butt the 2 sheets tigh and leave the gap against the side walls of the boat where it will be less noticeable and get no foot traffic . A thin strip of aluminum riveted or screwed on the underneath side of the plywood helps to hold the seam tight
    • two bowls of that will send you to heaven!!
    • 10 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY early this morning. Can’t sleep so I got up and made a breakfast and rolled myself into the den to look at my mess. I am in the middle of a computer upgrade when my new addition decided to die on me. Not a new computer but the daughters old one which when running is ten times the old junker that I have been running. We have narrowed it done to the power supply but I am going to have my x son in law take a look before we do anything. If my den is not all ready crowded enough with a cluttered desk and tobacco out to roll some cigars and the trays of flowers under the grow lights there is just enough room for me and my chair.   So I hitched a ride yesterday afternoon to the Lodge with my neighbor Chuck. Place was quiet so I was actually working going over sales the last week and plotting sales when we had games on the new TV and sales are up. We will have it paid for here shortly and it might even make us money this summer if the Twins can put any kind of a season together. So I am at the bar and a older gent walks in that looks vaguely familiar. Looks the place over then takes a seat on a stool in front of me "HIYA" he says and I return the greeting. "Where are the dogs" he asks. I sit back in my stool and ask "You mean Bud and Barney?" He nods his head yes and says "It has been awhile since I have been here but I do remember being greeted by two big brown dogs" " They both passed a few years ago." I said. He nodded his head and said "Sorry for your loss" and we both just sat for awhile thinking of old dogs.   "My name is Luis" and he put out his hand which I shook. "Got a place on the end of the lake and this is a long drive to get here but I decided to make the drive today" "Welcome to the Lodge Luis" I said then I yelled out "Duncan" and Duncan got up from the couch in the office and came out to the main room. "Say hi to Luis" Duncan then came around to Luis, sat down and stuck out his paw to be shook. Luis chuckled some and shook Duncan’s paw and looked back at me and said "I figured you would not be dog less" Some petting and a few good rubs and the two of them were now long loss friends. Duncan came around the bar and laid down on his rug by the cooler.   "So what can I get ya Luis?" Luis looked at the back wall and said "You know it looks like a beer day, How about a Hamms?" So I poured him one and a shortly for myself and went into my bartender mode. "You have a dog Luis?" I asked. Luis wiped his mouth with his sleeve and smacked his lips. "I don’t but my wife does. "What kind ?" I asked and Luis told me he does not remember, it was expensive though and it is retired. "Retired, I asked, How old is it?" Luis taking another sip of his beer said "Two"   "How can it be retired already" I asked. Luis looking into his beer glass said "Well the wife carries it everywhere, dresses it up in spendy dog clothes, It fits inside her purse and she takes it shopping claming it is her companion, I thought I was her companion" Luis held out his glass for a refill and I poured him another. We spent some time talking about hunting dogs and big house dogs and dogs that never see the inside of a purse. I sat on my stool behind the bar with Duncan’s paw resting on my foot, I guess it aint all that bad here at Lake Iwanttobethere
    •     Sounds like Trump wants to run it like the DNC and the GOP run the debates, only minus the DNC...      
    •     Yes, that's what I was thinking.....    
    •   Rush was getting the pills from multiple doctors and off the street, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison..  But, of course, he had the financial means to avoid prison, whereas the average Joe does not.   Ending the war on drugs means getting the federal government less involved with drug abuse, since they have failed miserably at the job.   States like Arizona and those going ahead with legalizing marijuana as a first step are taking the lead, and eventually the feds will have to step aside.   http://substanceabuse.az.gov/substance-abuse/rethink-rx
