He had 3 1/2 sacks today. DeMarcus needs 4 to tie.
P.S. Zero for Jason Babin today.
Rather have the W. Let Allen have the record if we get the W I could care less.
wow....here's to hoping ware gets those needed sacks. That means we are finally getting to eli this year.
That's very impressive for a DE.
It would be even more impressive for a linebacker.
Here are the single-season leaders for sack by a linebacker --
20.5 Lawrence Taylor (1986)
20.0 Derrick Thomas (1990)
20.0 DeMarcus Ware (2008)
19.5 Tim Harris (1989)
18.5 Andre Tippett (1984)
18.0 DeMarcus Ware (2011) -- one game remaining
Notice that Ware is the only linebacker since 1990 to have at least 18 sacks, and this is the second time he has done it.
That is odd. When there game was over, I checked his sack totals and NFL.com said he had zero. Now he has 3 1/3?
But in reality, Allen and Ware play the same position, regardless of what position they are listed at by the team.
That's the opposite of Adam's point. Also, it's inaccurate.
Damn, NFL record for Jared Allen. The Vikings had a rough year, but good for him. Love the way he plays the game, he deserves it.
I hope someone surpasses him. I can't stand that guy!
He doesn't have the record. Strahan still holds it at 22.5. Allen missed it by half a sack.
I don't count sacks that were handed to you, so rightfully, Allen holds the record.
Allen deserves DPOY award even though he plays for a crappy team.
