    He's getting killed by Vikings fans. Definitely not a free pass. He's been garbage and getting owned by inferior offensive tackles.

      Im not sure who is exactly giving him a pass? Every Vikes fan on these boards is pissed at him.

        Why bring that up? Peppers is playing like an animal this season. He's been amazing.

          Chad Clifton always handles Jared Allen well one on one. In his career against the Packers in games Clifton plays he has 1.5 sacks, and for some reason I distinctly remember that half sack when he was with the Chiefs wasn't when he was matched up with Clifton. Last year he got 7.5 sacks with Clifton out both games.

            Jared Allen isn't getting a pass. He sucks this year.

              Allen is white and therefore a "high effort" guy....so we all know he's trying. Peppers is more of a super-athlete type who tends to get lazy.

              Duh.

                Last year, Allen had 7 of his sacks against the Packers #2 and #3 LTs.
                In the 2008 opener, when Clifton was healthy, Chad also pitched a total shutout of Jared Allen in the season opener for both guys, and Rodgers starting debut.

                When healthy, Chad Clifton was almost as good as anyone in pass protection.

                But Jared Allen is not himself. I know he's been drinking heavily within 48 hours of one game in particular per one personal source. Perhaps that's a regular occurance this year for Jared.... marriage does that to a lot of us! (usually not that soon though as JA just got married this summer).

                  Duh.
                  Really? Nobody has ever said Donald Driver is a high effort guy? Or Adrian Peterson, Steve Smith, Ray Lewis, DeMarcus Ware, Darren Sproles?

                      Damn you SenorGato...I was hoping to bring up racism...but anyway this is such a weird year, its hard to not hand out passes to half the league this season with all the madness...The Giants bought the Cowboys a couple more weeks of passes by injuring Tony Romo.

                        He has been pretty ordinary but you can't understate the difference that our absolutely abysmal offensive playcalling and execution has on the defense.

                        Allen has always been a guy who is a beast when he can pin the ears back and just pass rush and has always looked a bit lost to me on plays where he has to honour the run, the "positive" that I've noticed with him this year is that he isn't getting abused on screens and draws like he has in the past because he isn't just selling out on a pass rush every play. It almost feels like he is hesitant in pass rushing this year.

                        The playcalling and Favre have not helped his or any of the defenses cause, they are giving up scores, turning it over, putting us behind and not even eating clock up. Entirely not Peterson's fault, he is running better than ever when Childress decides to put him in and hand off.

                        Not a free pass for Allen though, he has been ordinary so far and isn't playing with the same motor or burst he has in the past and doesn't look anywhere near as aggressive, almost like he is playing scared. I think that being replaced as the guy with the "best" hair in the division has rocked his confidence!


                        Props to BK on the sig!

                          He made the difference in beating the Packers, for sure. Back-to-back key plays cost is 7 points, then 3 points.

                          The b*st*rd!

                            No no no...Those guys are excellent athletes who happen to play football well.

                            Allen gets by with savvy, smarts, and hard work. Those guys are just bigger and/or faster than everyone...Duh.

                              Class acts, too.



                              Seriously, though - anyone who wants to can look at tape or online video and see Pepp giving zero effort on plenty of plays. That's just not something you see from Allen.
