Jared Allen is one of the dirtiest players in the NFL. I don’t need some SI players poll to tell me that — I can figure it out on my own. The guy’s got like three DUIs, he’s been suspended games because of it, and he’s been fined like 90 grand this year, mostly for dirty hits on quarterbacks. He got docked 50 large for taking out Matt Schaub’s knees, an injury that made Schaub miss about four games. He was fined 25 grand for his late hits on Aaron Rodgers. This guy’s a dirty, filthy, disgusting player who isn’t much of a sportsman on the field. But as soon as someone turns the table on him, he gets completely outraged and incensed like an utter hypocrite. Check out the video of Allen getting cut-blocked by Gosder Cherilus of the Lions on Sunday and turn your volume down (the music in the video sucks).
Allen gets up all raging bull style on Cherilus like he can’t believe how someone could be so dirty as to go after his unprotected knees. Duh, Jared! That’s the exact thing you’re doing to quarterbacks and you’re not thinking twice before harming them. Now that you know how it feels, maybe you’ll take it upon yourself to play with slightly more caution. It would serve us all better.
