Jared Allen is to the 09 Vikings what Reggie Williams was to the Super Bowl Packers. The white Reggie Williams.

Need pass defense, end of story. Down the line, if VIKES make it deep into playoff, pass defense will become a bigger issue. Defense wins.

With some harder games in the near future I think the Vike's will be exposed.

Yeah, "exposed" as one of the best teams in the NFL.

Well, they didn't really just let him go. He was demanding a huge increase in pay, was (and still is) one slip up from getting suspended for alcohol related arrests, and the Chiefs were going to be a bad team even with him. They received a first and two third round picks. Now that the draft picks haven't really panned out (Branden Albert - still has potential, Jamaal Charles - decent 3rd down back, but can't beat out the overpaid and wore down Larry Johnson, and Brad Cottam - a bust of a TE pick), it might look bad, but there was a good chance that Allen wouldn't have re-signed with KC anyway and they would have lost him for nothing a year later.
With that said, I still love seeing him in purple. Go Vikes!

Peter King analyzed the Jarred Allen trade in his column today:

"What the Chiefs got:

1st round (15th overall) Branden Albert, OT -- Starting LT has a chance to be good. In-and-out work ethic.


3rd round (73) Jamaal Charles, RB -- Change-of-pace back averaging five carries a game in 21 pro games.


3rd round (82) DaJuan Morgan, S -- Sub safety who still has to prove self to new coaching staff.


6th round (182) Kevin Robinson, WR -- Cut by Chiefs in '08.

What the Vikings got:

Jared Allen, DE -- The league's best all-around defensive end has 21 sacks and three safeties in 22 Viking games.

6th round (187) John Sullivan, C -- First-year starting center on one of NFL's best lines.

It's not certain, but it's possible that history will show that the Vikings got a more productive player at 187 (Sullivan) than the Chiefs got at 15 (Albert). Ouch."

Jared Allen is the bomb! His attitude toward the game and just having fun makes it great to watch him! I wish they would put a mic on him once and a while so we could hear what he says on the sidelines! Always seems he has something smart to say! Haha! Go Vikes!!!

Kansas City refused to give Jared Allen a top-tier defensive end contract 18 months ago, instead shipping him to Minnesota for what appeared to be fair compensation three days before the 2008 draft. Here's how the deal looks today:

What the Chiefs got:

1st round (15th overall) Branden Albert, OT -- Starting LT has a chance to be good. In-and-out work ethic.

3rd round (73) Jamaal Charles, RB -- Change-of-pace back averaging five carries a game in 21 pro games.

3rd round (82) DaJuan Morgan, S -- Sub safety who still has to prove self to new coaching staff.

6th round (182) Kevin Robinson, WR -- Cut by Chiefs in '08.

What the Vikings got:

Jared Allen, DE -- The league's best all-around defensive end has 21 sacks and three safeties in 22 Viking games.

6th round (187) John Sullivan, C -- First-year starting center on one of NFL's best lines.

What fun it is to watch a team having fun, especially Favre and Jarred. Huge smiles most of the time.

Go Vikes, we love you!

Lance I consider myself to be a realistic Vike fan, always have, I know we will lose but I do believe if we stay healthy we can win 11 and have a shot at being in the NFC champ game.

And I will not with you about that. Staying healthy is huge, it always is.
I've never said that the Vikes are not a good team. Obviously they are, but one also has to note that the teams they have beat have a 7-17 record.
