    Former Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen is no longer mincing words (OK, he never really did)....

    Re: No lack of confidence for Jared Allen

    Allen told the newspaper he also regrets that Bears rookie left tackle Chris Williams is injured.

    “I wish he would have started,” Allen said. “Rookies have no chance. They aren’t real people yet. They don’t exist in my world. Whatever you did in college, you did in college. This is the NFL. I’m coming to get you. I wish (Williams) was playing.”

    This guy is so real. He says what's on his mind, but is smart enough not to give them anything to put on the board.

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    “I wish he would have started,” Allen said. “Rookies have no chance. They aren’t real people yet. They don’t exist in my world. Whatever you did in college, you did in college. This is the NFL. I’m coming to get you. I wish (Williams) was playing.”
    Good thing he came to a team were the staff doesn't believe in running rookies out and letting them learn on the field huh.


    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: No lack of confidence for Jared Allen

    Peter King, on SIRIUS NFL Radio this morning, said the Vikes were the "Boutique pick to win the NFC North prior to Jared Allen's arrival."
    He went on to say, "Jared Allen is the player that puts them over the top, I think he'll have 20 sacks this season."

    The fact that Jared Allen is a throwback is icing on the cake.
    He should not lack confidence, he's next to, arguably, the best two Defensive Tackles in the NFL.
    I agree with King, to a point...20 might be difficult because Kevin Williams is gonna be on fire, thanks to Allen's arrival.


    Orton didn't hear a "Who," Orton heard an Allen.

    Kitna, Allen will serve you your left tackle for lunch.

    Rodgers, welcome to the NFL, and the sight of the sky...'cause that's what you are gonna be studying, whilst on your back.

    As previously stated, this defensive line will be headline material all year...and Mr Allen knows it.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    He was talking about the time before they played.
    AD was a rookie and before he played his first NFL game/season he was a big question mark.
    All rookies are.
    The NFL and college ball are so different that his quote is right on the money.

    Re: No lack of confidence for Jared Allen

    I liked Tim Yotters' blurb on Allen yesterday:

    Childress was quoted as saying of Allens fun loving personality: "God help us when he gets comfortable around here."

    The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good -Samuel Johnson - lexicographer
    The word genius isn t applicable in football. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein - Joe Theisman
