Jared Allen Digs at the Offense


How long will the Vikings‘ top-flight defense tolerate being saddled with an offense that isn’t giving them any help?  Not very long.  In fact, there are already signs of dissension – like this remark from Jared Allen during a post-game interview with KFAN’s Greg Coleman:

This game sucks man.  This one sticks with you because…it’s the type of game that you feel when you look up at the scoreboard you think it’s gonna be 28-3, 28-7…I mean, you dominated them.

It might’ve been 28-3 after the way the Vikings’ defense throttled Peyton Manning and the Colts in the first half – but the offense couldn’t finish off drives and had to settle for field goals.  That 15-0 halftime lead proved eminently surmountable.  Allen’s little dig at the offense is a sign of the unpleasantness to come if things don’t get shored up on that side of the football.

    Jared is absolutely right! How long will a defense maintain intensity when they see opportunities being blown on the offensive side.
    My call for a different QB experiement stands even if that means giving Gus a couple shots to start and bringing in 3 or 4 free agent QB’s, including Daunte provided his puts his ego aside.  I know him and he is a decent guy who let a greedy agent steer him wrong. That’s beside the point-look for a sleeper who will move the ball when we are near or in the red zone.

    I say let Jared play quarterback.
