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!

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
