Shooter Now: You can see the other side of Vikings' Jared Allen

Full story: TwinCities.com

On the field, Jared Allen is fearless, rambunctious, flamboyant. Tuesday at a "Straight Talk" Search Ministries breakfast at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel, people will see a different side of the Vikings' eccentric Pro Bowl pass rusher.

Yes, it is very newsworthy. Nice to hear something positive about our sports heroes v.s. the negative. I'm proud of you Jared!

Does anyone else read into Barnett's comments that he wouldn't coach under Maturi? Kinda seems that way to me.

I will lay out the problems and the solutions.

1-Brett is depressed form surgery and medication
he will get rid out it very soon.
2-Jared Alen is a newly wed, and he is scared to get hurt.
Soon he will show some fire and desire soon
3-Bernard is scared of failure,
VJ is the cure
4- Sydney Rice is a built in excuse
We will snap out of that, before he makes it back
5- Percy has been reborn with getting a good nights sleep
He will adjust, and go back to working out more than enjoying sleep

It all seems logical doesn't it?
After a couple more slips we will start wining again.

And playing the Lions is a good way to get healthy and fix somethings.

No offense, but I only want to see the side of him that speaks loudly on the football field during games. Skol Vikings.

The Gophers program will never improve until there is an administration in place that is committed to winning (or even trying to win). They have a chance to reverse the disgrace that is Gopher football after this year by first firing Brewster AND Maturi, and hiring a competent AD that knows what qualities are needed for a real Big Ten coach.

Hey berrian it's not that you have too much pressure it's that you suck period. You couldn't catch a ball if it hit you right in the hands going 1 mph. It's not that you are trying to hard , your not trying at all or just don't have the skills or the ability to give 100% because it's simply your not a talented Nfl player.

Oh, great - more idiot football players professing their "faith" in something that has not had one scintilla of testable evidence presented in support of it...

*epic nuclear facepalm*

There's no evidence at all for a god, so stop wasting your life subjugating yourself to one. Step out of the Bronze Age, people; you'll be glad you did.

I am watching the sunset now and am in awe-but according to you-it just happened! Something came from nothing!! I prefer the Bible to someone like you for wisdom and knowledge The Bible is particularly appropriate with verses like"the fool hath said in his heart there is no God." Accordingly, you are either mentally ill or a liar. I will give you the benefit of the doubt

So why waste your time posting about the article? Crybaby.

Why sit around for a bible study? No one understands it and they make up their own meaning. How about a book study that actually makes you smarter, like Thom Hartmann book study night. You might learn something instead of how to be a sheep. baaaaaa
