    Default Jared Allen

    I'm fairly new to the boards, and I'm sure there has been topics on this. But I hate watching Jared Allen continue to tear up QBs. We haven't had a good pass rush since he left. It looks like a good trade when we trade him for a first and two 3rds, but draft picks are always a gamble. We got Dorsey, Jamaal Charles, and Dajuan Morgan (is he even still with the Chiefs???) for him. He would still be a huge asset to our team. I just don't see the logic to trading THE best pass rusher in the league (I believe he led the league in sacks AFTER missing 4 games for his DUI) for anything less than another player that has proven his worth in the NFL. I have to say, this was more bonehead that Al Davis taking DHB in the 1st round this year.

    Jared stated publicly that he didn't want to leave KC...he believed he would spend his career as a Chief, bought land & built a nice home in KC intending to stay.

    I was upset then, and still am today at Peterson for letting Jared go...with Peterson's power trip ego, he wasn't about to give Jared what he wanted...he didn't like him, didn't want him to stay.

    It was the trade of Allen that was the last straw for me as far as having any support or respect for CP remaining GM of the Chiefs.
    kinda reminds of of CP and John Tait, how they disliked each other

    Well, that could be because CP never kept his word with those good players if they produced for him. They produced, then he found excuses, or reasons...depending on your personal view...to not keep his word.

    I always believed CP was more about profit than winning, and a good GM can balance both...CP couldn't. He got lucky with the Schottenheimer era, especially considering some of our good players like DT were more content with what CP offered I suppose.
