I'm With Favre on This One

After ripping his old team for 271 yards and 3 touchdowns, in a post-game interview Brett Favre turned the spotlight on his teammates and more specifically, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen. Favre went on to call him a "BEAST" and he should know, having played against Allen many times. Favre's high praise came in response to Allen's performance on MNF...7 total tackles, 6 solo tackles, a career-high 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a safety.

Allen completely dominated the game Monday night, disrupting the Packers offense all night long. Admittedly, #69 took advantage of some injuries in the Packers offensive line, but injuries are part of the game and I don't think it would have made a difference anyway.

Of all the players that I thought might take over the game Monday night, Allen was at least 5th on my list behind the obvious choices of every game BEASTS...Favre, Adrian Peterson, Aaron Rodgers and Donald Driver...but that's why we play the games and that is why I write this blog. So there it is, Jared Allen was a damn beast on MNF this week because Brett Favre said so.
