    This is coming from people who covered the Vikes last year. Broadcasters and reporters.

    Not saying they are right or wrong, but I have to put some weight on it since they see him far more than we do

    I heard the same thing, I heard he was AWFUL against the run last year. I did hear one that said it could have been that he saw the year as done just started going after sack #'s, but he said he's not sure that's the case. Also said it was a contract year so who knows how motivated he'll truly be now that he's got paid.

    There are some questionmarks, but it's still a good signing.

    I think with Pep phoning it in last year there will be more scrutiny on Allen, and that's a good thing.

    From Vikings message board:

    1. Jared Allen sign with Bears!!
      Minnesota Vikings Free Agency Report: Jared Allen Joins The Bears - Daily Norseman
    2. Is it really a good fit? The NFL's worst rushing defense picks up a guy who hates trying to stop the run.

    3. never saw that coming. a 4 year deal to boot
      Jared signing with a division rival and facing Jared twice a year sucks! [​IMG]
    4. Just puked in my mouth...
    5. I feel used...
    6. They overpaid for a declining pass rusher. He still has a couple decent years left in him but I don't see him dominating like he did with us. He'll probably wind up a situational guy instead of an every down player. I hope he does ok except when he plays us. Like I've said, it's better to get rid of a declining player a year early than a year late. We needed a younger guy and the cap room if we saved any.​

    --------------------

    Now I just hope he won't be an overpaid bust, otherwise the rest of the division will have a good laugh. :/

    What a great FA certainly got younger on D as well more flexability then we had. I can;t wait see how it all comes together. bring on the draft :23_28_100[1]:

    Happy with this signing.
    Kinda surprised at the JA vs Pep stats breakdown over at espn --- hadn't realized how much MORE productive Allen had been over Peppers during the past 4 seasons.
    I think it's good that he's a vocal guy too and will be a leader in that regard, whereas I got the impression that Pep was a guy who strictly let his play do the talking.

    I'm very happy with the signing. He was my pick from the first day of FA and I'm glad they finally got him. He is still dominant against the pass and I think his run defense will change significantly this year. It's hard to do the dirty job snap after snap when you're in a situation where no matter how well you play your team sucks. If the bears a real chance at being contenders this year, then I think he will have the motivation to dominate.
