I think I'm leaving the site for good. Everyone have a great season.
Don't do it my friend. Too many have left already. Doesn't matter who's right or wrong. Healthy debate is good for the site. We can't all be yes men !
You bring up a lot of interesting points here. I think there are many who would miss your input whether they agree or not ; I know I would. Stick around. Debate makes the site better.
Why couldn't he get better? Because he's 31??? Look what Ray Lewis accomplished at the LB position.
It's possible, and Ray Lewis is the exception, although he did miss 4 games in 2011 and 10 games in 2012.
Guys over 30 are not getting big money in free agency. Because of his current contract I don't think Allen would take less the 10-12million a year for 3 addition years.
Dwight Freeny 33, got a two year deal worth 8million.
Brian Urlacher, 35, got so little interest he retired.
Antoine Winfield, 35, 1 year 3million a year.
Charles Woodson, 36, 1 year deal worth 4.3million.
Osi Umenyiora, 31, 2 years 8.55million
Nnamdi Asomugha 32, 1 year 3million
Unless Allen has a near record breaking year, he's not going to be getting 10 million a year in free agency next year, and the Vikings will have a good shot to resign him for less money than it would cost right now, and on our terms.
