Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

Recommended Posts



I have a feeling they'll extend him this year. If not they're retarded to trade him or let him go

They already tried to work out an extension with him and he didn't go for it. I can't imagine he'd change his mind after this year when the Bears are probably the worst team in the league and he has to work with amazing duo of Jimmy Clausen and John Fox.

This comes across as a enormous last ditch straw grab that not a single soul here is gullible enough to buy into. 

Everybody here has engaged in the discussion at some point in the last six months and trade targets have been a significant, if not the preeminent at points, aspect of that discussion.

Again, if trades in the league are so unknown to you that they blindside you when they happen, that's fine, we get that your mindset is stuck in decades gone by, but do everybody else a courtesy and assume everybody else posts with that same archaic mindset. Youre embarrassing yourself. It's the equivalent of a color blind man yelling at others that the sky is not blue nor the grass green.

 

 

edit: oh look, here's a thread from this month alone dedicated to discussing trade options. Am i imaging this scot?

 

Nope, but you're imagining the part where we're talking about the same position.

Trading for a permanent starter didn't make sense given that Benjamin would be back next season. The situation at DE is far different. Thus, the trade makes more sense.

I realize you dont have the ccapacity to get the subtleties, but hey...

My personal favorite:

good trade for them. Allen was lost as a 3-4 LB in Chicago. He is moving back to his original DE in a 4-3. After having Pneumonia last year and playing through that he will probably bounce back to really help them. @$850000 and a sixth. must be nice to have a competent GM. Screw the Panthers.

Everyone upset that we didn't do this for our WRs has to remember KB is still on the team. You add him plus next years draft and our WR core looks dominate. We just don't need to add a body for just one year when the guys we do have arnt doing too bad. If our WR started to crash and burn and we were 0-3 then yes they would have to make a move. But as it stands pass rush was glaring weakness that they shored up. Good move by GMan

Benjamin isnt on the team, He's on injured reserve. This move was made to help the Panthers win the Super Bowl THIS season. We are making a move to win now, as we should. We're one of the few good teams in a league that doesnt have many. We should be going all in. 

 

This is doing that, and i approve.

I'm sure Greene wouldn't mind giving it up. Probably not attached to it anyway.

This is a win/win/win. We get a proven player with a high motor, to pair with two of the best, nastiest interior linemen in the NFL, and a guy that can help light a fire under whoever is playing on the other end. Allen is too old to rebuild a team around, so it's better for the Bears to get some chance at value later rather than marginal value right now. Allen gets to move back to the position he built his career at, and a chance to spend the last few years on a team where he can be one of a group of high level guys, even if he's not still able to be THE guy. 

And we probably get to keep the pick if we have to cut him early for underperforming. #Gettlemagic
