Jared Allen cuts off his mullet

One of the NFL’s signature haircuts is no more.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen has cut off his mullet, and is pictured today at Vikings.com with the kind of conservative haircut you’d expect to see on a businessman, not a wild man like Allen.

Allen (who went bonkos last month at a man who hurled an obscenity at his fiancee) explained that he got a haircut in anticipation of his upcoming wedding.

“The things men do for love,” Allen said.

    Roger Goodell just issued the testing of hair for banned susbstances, how ironic.

    That’s a haircut more befitting a resident of L.A.

    Which one? Does he still have the one on his nuts?

  7. Sarge says: May 25, 2010 8:45 PM

    He’ll grow it back. He’ll be farting on her leg in bed before long too.

    not to worry Vikings fans, he’ll still be a trashy, classless, redneck slapdick at heart

  12. Flipadelphia says: May 25, 2010 9:06 PM

    Still looks like a dipshit.

  19. JimmySmith says: May 25, 2010 9:25 PM

    I suppose “signature haircut” is the polite way of saying he looked like a redneck, hillbilly, dofus straight out of movie “Deliverance”
    A movie that is sure to be in the DVD collection of most Viking fans for the obvious reason.
    But give Allen a couple more years and he will look like Chilly –except that he wouldn’t wear a dress and since he can already count to 12, he will always be smarter but that aint setting the bar that high. But not setting the bar that high is already a Viking tradition, just look at the playoff record for the last 49 years.

    Update: Las vegas Police have taken Ben Roethlisberger and Jared Allen’s Mullets in for questioning regarding an alleged incident at Allen’s Mullet’s Bachelor Party. Apparently a 19 years old strippers heart shaped beaver was provided shots of Jagermeister and forced to dry hump in a closet by Ben’s mullet , then forcibly shaved to a landing strip by a spear thrown by Allen’s mullet .

    Luv the Allen bashers………just because he’s not kicking ass for your team, and doing it with exceptional ability, the bashers come alive.
    If he was on your team……you’d love him. He disrupts EVERYTHING.
    One moron actually stated he was overrated. Just jealous your team didn’t have the kahunas to trade for him. I have no problem backing your own team, but just to bash because he is on a team you don’t like, or he has a mullet is ridiculous.
    Go ahead bashers…..JA will just bash your QB into oblivion…..with/without the mullet!!!!!

  54. ACDC84 says: May 26, 2010 1:16 AM

    Does no mullet = no cheap low hits on QBs this year??
    I’ll set the over/under on cheap low hits this year at 6 1/2, and I’ll still take the over.

  55. millionwatts says: May 26, 2010 4:14 AM

    i think the mullet has some trade value. they shouldn’t just throw that away. given recent history, i think the Bears would trade a 3rd rounder for it.

  56. DirtDawg55 says: May 26, 2010 7:23 AM

    A lot of funny comments – now this is what I come to the site for.
    As for Allen being over rated, well I’m not an Allen or Vikings fan, but at least I do some research. According to Pro Football Focus, Allen was the 6th highest rated defensive end, in a 4/3 defence, last year. His rush skills are much higher than his run stopping skills, which are only average. He had only 1 game where he didn’t register at least 1 QB sack, pressure or hit.
    Seems to me he’s what everyone says he is – a disruptive, pass rushing machine. However, there are at least nine or ten others in a 4/3 defence like him and some are as gifted at stopping the run as they are the pass. Does that make him overrated? Maybe a little, but more like overhyped.

  57. NitshkesGhost@1265 says: May 26, 2010 7:54 AM

    Once again we reach the depths of the offseason. A hair cut, really. I think we need a sreious cup check on this site. If we are going to have this kind of fluff could we at least look at some cheerleaders Florio?

  58. Duck Fallas says: May 26, 2010 8:04 AM

    He is not what you would call a handsome man. The good Lord chose not to bless him with… with charm, athletic ability… or a fully functional brain.
    Well, maybe some athletic ability.

    Damn I’m glad I’m a Vikings fan. Because apparently disliking the Vikings means that you have zero sense of humor and some strange misplaced hatred for anyone who has success when you don’t. I think that is called envy…

  62. DallasRavens says: May 26, 2010 9:29 AM

    From ESPN.com
    “The mullet isn’t just a hairdo. It’s definitely a lifestyle. You’re carrying on a legacy,” he said “If I approach you from the front, it’s like, wow, that dude is pretty serious. Then I walk away and you’re like, damn, he likes to party. With two Rs.”

    ================================
    His job isn’t to stop the run. His job is to rush the QB. The Williams wall is there to stop the run, #3 last year after a 3 year run at #1.
    Vikes had the most sacks last year and #6 overall defense. I’d say they are doing just fine.

  64. purpleguy says: May 26, 2010 10:33 AM

    Interestingly, the most stolen road sign in Green Bay isn’t Lombardi Way, Holmgren Place or I’m a Cheeser Dumbass Drive, but “Mullet Place”. I’m dead serious. The irony of Pack fans trashing Allen’s haircut under these circumstances cannot possibly be lost. Well, I suppose that is asking too much from most Pack fans.

    (Insert Taco Bill photoshop here!)
    ______________________________
    Yeah, that might be clever, if it made any sense.
    As anyone with even an iota of understanding about the game of football might tell you, Urlacher’s job is NOT “to get to the quarterback”, but
    A) to shed blocks and tackle
    B) fill a gap in run stopping support
    C) use his lateral speed to make plays sideline-to-sideline
    D) drop back into coverage
    E) and finally, once in a midnight-blue moon, make a rush (or fake rush, then drop back) at the QB via the Bears’ “mug look” defense–but when Urlacher rushes, the Bears lose that speed and range in the zone behind the d-line
    Besides, everyone knows the mullet already has its OWN plans to go after the knees of NFL players everywhere (without Allen).
    BiQueens aren’t worried, though–as they spend so much of their time on their knees anyway, they’re pretty much protected.
