    Vikings won over by talents of 'changed' Jared Allen

    [size=13pt]Vikings won over by talents of 'changed' Jared Allen[/size]

    Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier had his doubts about all-pro defensive end Jared Allen's pledge that he is a changed man after three drunken-driving arrests since 2002.....

    Re: Vikings won over by talents of 'changed' Jared Allen

    Management decided to pursue Allen rather than move up the draft board for Florida defensive end Derrick Harvey the way the Jacksonville Jaguars did, partly on the recommendation of former Vikings Pro Bowl fullback Tony Richardson, now with the New York Jets. Richardson spent time with Allen, his former Chiefs teammate, at the Pro Bowl in February and was impressed by his personal growth.
    Man, I'm gonna miss Tony Richardson! He is a great player and a person. To bad he left us

    I'm actually starting to beleive we can have a great season. If some of those off season acquisitions can really contribute and the team can stay healthy who knows where it can end.

    Roll on September ;D

    It can end with a Super Bowl win!

    Honestly, I think this team is the most poised for a Super Bowl run in about a decade.
    We are only missing one piece, and it is entirely possible that that piece has matured enough to be a serviceable player this year.
    We shall see...

    Someone mentioned Tony Richardson. I was hanging out with a good friend of his recently, and I kept asking him "is he really still a Viking" ? and the friend kept saying yes. Unfortunately, he is now a Jet...

    It is OK to be one piece away.
    It is not OK to trade years and years worth of first and second round draft picks to pick up that piece.
