    This is what I posted to you last night saying he if he could get him to take a deal like Pep got where his cap was low enough this year he could easily do it if he wanted him. This was like a chess move. GB gets Pep and we counter that with Allen. Knight to Queen's Pawn four. LOL

    Let's keep in mind that Allen should be used in a rotation. If he's got to be out there full time and play a ton of snaps he won't be as effective.

    I'd say that's a distinct possibility. Allen at RDE, Young at LDE and Houston at DT. After signing Izzy and now this they're gonna be releasing some of those other DEs sooner or later. I have to say that when Phil decides to rebuild a line he doesn't fool around does he?

    So last year Emery was out to fix the offensive line and he made it a lot better than many of us thought was possible.

    And this year he has really focused on the D-line and BAM! On paper we just got a LOT better.

    On Paper? No this is a lot better, between lack of depth and inj's last years DL was full of old, bad and unproven questionmarks(melton, wootton, shea). Now the team IS better, 2 of the best young DE run stuffers, Paea is still strong against the run, Rattliff is a good DT, Houston will play DT and DE. But Allen, Young, Houston, Rattliff are all better then Peppers, Wootton, Melton, Shea

    Good pickup. I figured it much that same. Spotrac didn't show any signing bonus so he probably gets his $15.5 mil in the first two years and after than it's a pay as you go deal. They pushed a larger part of his guarantee to next year to lower his 2014 cap hit.

    This was the signing I was hoping for. When they made some cap room I was hoping Allen would be signed but put it at only about 10%. I think we are ok now with DE. I would still like a dominant DT though. However, now it is not a position of dire need like it was.

    We have flaxability to go S, DT, CB now. Emery did a great job. The DL is much improved. I think S will be addressed in the draft. Not sure where, but that will also get much better before it's over. IMO, Allen is better to have on the team than Peppers at this point in time. Peppers checked out. Whether it was him or it was the coaches is irrelevant. He had thrown that mental switch and it's hard to get back that motivation once it happens. I think the guy is MUCH better than he played last year and I'm concerned about him in GB, but Allen is probably a better player at this point in time that Peppers even with Peppers playing well. Allen will give you everything every game and I think both players now have a chip on their shoulders.

    We are getting set up for success. Not much grass grown under Emerys feet... I'll say that. When we have a need, the guy goes after it.
