    Jared Allen: Larger than life - Vikings get their money’s worth

    [size=13pt]Vikings' Jared Allen: Larger than life[/size]

    The Vikings made a big investment in Jared Allen, but the defensive end has been worth every penny.

    Dude is a straight BEAST!
    I was excited about the signing when it happened this offseason and I am even happier with it now.
    12.5 sacks for Allen and 8.5 for K. Will so far this year.
    I can;t remeber exactly, but wasn;t our leading sacker last year at 5.5?
    Wow, what a difference this guy has made!

    adding Allen was a great step, its freed KWill up to reak havoc this year, and compliment Allen's pass rush. The combination of him and Madieu has been huge for our pass defense, and his intensity reminds me of Ray Lewis. That kind of intensity is addictive and infectious and has rubbed off on other players. When we get EJ back next year, this defense will be unstoppable

    Allen is a throwback to our glory years.
    I haven't seen anyone play through pain like him since the Purple People Eaters.

    Best DE in the league right now.
    The guy is just amazing and must have a very high pain threshold.
    I loved it when he went after the Lions peon that low blocked him.
    Plus Allen has a sense of football history and seems have a great sense of humor.
    We are fortunate to have him- keep it up Jared!

    My favorite Viking. I have never seen a player play with as much heart as he does every single week. He is willing to give it all he has (including risking his body, like yesterday), for a win for his team. He is unreal.

    Allen will probably be fined for kneeing that guy in the helmet... and for tackling Dante too hard.

    Long live the mullet...he cuts a stripe in his hair for every sack. Pretty soon he'll run out of hair to cut. What a character, and a great player.
