Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

Recommended Posts

i keep going backwards and i still can't figure out what you guys are arguing about

whether Benjamin was a part of this team since he is on IR......

basically measuring e penises I think.

It only seems right that since Hurney overpaid CJ to keep him away from Atlanta, Gman would get a deal on JA and keep him away from the Falcons.

You are welcome to your opinion but I don't believe you can say that Jared Allen won't be as effective as Hardy was 2 years ago.  A 5 time Pro Bowler getting a chance to rejuvenate his career. 

What do you bet he comes in with a new fire and determination to show he still has it.  Add the fact that he has some solid interior line help.  

I wouldn't be surprised to see him get 10+ sacks in 13 games.

Possibly but you forget that Hardy was valuable for attributes other than sacks.  Hardy was a nasty special teams gunner (though I think we started to pull him from that role once the sacks started coming).  Hardy was a great lineman both on the inside and as an edge rusher.  Hardy was also great against the run and at chasing down screens and mobile quarterbacks.

The big difference here is that Hardy has unnatural raw speed for a man of his size.  He's very similar to Peppers and Robert Quinn over in St Louis.

I do hope Jared Allen rejuvenates his career and has an animal year, and I certainly think that is a possibility.  I don't think we should downplay just how great that dline in 2013 was though.

If you had posted this on page one of the thread it would have gotten at least 50 pies.

Hardy is a better player than Jared Allen right now, I don't think it can even come close to competing with what we had in 2013 where we led the league in sacks.

Who said anything about downplaying 2013.  I initially said that this DL could become one of our greatest defensive lines in our history.  I don't think that is out of the realm of possibility. 

For the record I loved our DL with Hardy and Johnson and the two rookies.  God only knows how great they could have been last year.  But the fact is, that never happened

Allen could easily bring to the table everything Hardy did.  Let's not forget it hasn't been too long ago that Jared Allen was the top DE in the league.  Not long ago at all.  With the right mix he could easily pick up where he left off.

What Hardy didn't benefit from that Allen will.  Short and Star are veterans that have a couple of years under their belt.  So arguably better than they were as rookies in 2013.

I know it won't happen but since the Bears are in full rebuild mode, I would be willing to make a blockbuster trade for Alshon Jeffery. I would do Klein/1st/3rd rounder for Jeffrey

Since I can't respond to the other thread...someone's being all Meegan 

I am pinning this as an example of what a terrible thread is. 

If there is breaking news, and in your rush to be so super cool to post it here first that you post zero content thus making it a worthless thread it will be replaced by a better one.  

OP failed miserably here. Do better.

Jared Allen having us on the short list of his teams he wanted to be traded to has me pretty damn excited. 

Why SOJA? 

Because Allen is at the twilight of his career and he wants to win now. The Panthers are largely still viewed as a bottom feeder team, a team with an immature leader, the team that lucked into the playoffs, the team that won back to back titles but in the worst division in football- but not in the eyes of former All-Pro Jared Allen. 

What he sees is potential.

If that doesn't excite you about the future of this team after getting off to an undefeated start despite critical injuries, I'm not sure you should be a Panthers fan.

Great is that sounds i think you are reaching here. Allen is a seasoned vet and will definitely help us better than what we got to other day but lets just keep it in perspective we dont need him to be Hardy or acquired him to live up to that play. Pass rush is key to our D and he will help with that, Hardy type production is wishful thinking.

i've never understood the freak-out fest of trying to be the first one to post news. it's not like you're actually breaking real news, you're just being the first loser to click "new topic" and fat-finger a double-digit line of text without bothering to include the link of the guy who actually broke the news.

this place gets a lot of traffic on news searches for the panthers, so if you're admin it makes perfect sense to replace a shitty, hair-trigger sneeze of a thread with actual content two minutes later.

some of y'all take this poo too srs.

Think this is great but I think people are more excited we made a move. I understand both sides for Allen and was a huge fan of his with the Vikings. He will certainly be no Hardy but its cool. Him and Alshon Jeffery for DA & Klien would have rocked my entire universe.
