The fact that Jared Allen didn't initially approve of this scheme means it was going to be successful. Allen has yet to be correct about anything football related.

The Timberwolves did not draft Kevin Love, they made a trade for him.

This article gives good insight into one of the Viking's best strenghts—it's D-Line. In addition to the rotation, we have some of the best players in the NFL I predict that Green Bay will try to run a no-huddle in order to short circuit the rotation, but it won't stop substituions.

Prplchump: Jared Allen is a team leader and has great football horse sense. Of course he is not going to want to be pulled out because he motors 100%. Getting him was one of the best trades in Viking's history. What else has he been incorrect about?

Has the rotation paid off late in games? "It'd be interesting to look," Daly said ?? Well I did, Mr. Daly, and your brilliant idea has dropped the team's sacks from 5th in the league to 20th, or 49 sacks in 2011 to 31 now. Allen and Robison had 30 combined sacks alone last year. Why would you screw with that ?

"the Wolves would be a ordinary team without them" - the Wolves are a pretty ordinary team WITH them.
