What an unbelievable season from Jared Allen. Anyone else almost feel sorry for him? The debacle around him and he just keeps working. Congrats to him in passing another great, class guy in Chris Doleman.

These are the type of hokey records that intrigues fans of losing teams.

If there was any sort of secondary behind him he might have gotten to 30. Is the calf roping obnoxious? Sure it is. Is it more obnoxious than any of the self glorifying moves any other player makes? Nope.

Is there any Vikings player who celabrates his own accomplishments more? This guy is as phoney as a three dollar bill
