Jared Allen doesn’t expect retaliation from the Bears

Vikings Packers Football AP

When the Vikings and Bears played a couple of weeks ago, the Bears lost guard Lance Louis for the rest of the season after he was on the receiving end of a huge block from Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.

The Bears weren’t happy that Allen left his feet to deliver the blow and the league also took issue with his choice when they issued him a $21,000 fine in the days after the game. Allen has maintained that there was no intent to injure Louis on the play and said that he didn’t think there would be any outcry over the block if it had been made by an offensive player. And he said Wednesday that he doesn’t expect any retaliation from the Bears in this Sunday’s rematch.

They had a chance to retaliate during the game. Like I said, there is nothing to retaliate … it wasn’t malicious, it wasn’t done out of ill will. We had an interception and a guy was running towards our guy to make a tackle and I threw a block,” Allen said, via ESPNChicago.com “Like I said, my condolences to him. The intent is never to hurt anybody. You never want to hurt anybody. Unfortunately that is part of our game and it happened.”

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said this week that the best retaliation against Allen would be to stop him from wreaking any havoc in the pocket and we’re inclined to agree. The Bears don’t need to let anything take their eyes off the importance of winning this week’s game on their playoff hopes.

    If there is ONE and only ONE positive out of Lovie is that neither he nor his players resort to cheap shots.

    That being said, it’s time to FIRE LOVIE!!

    Yeah, but who is going to do that?

    You apparently missed the last play of the Bears’ game this past Sunday.

    About the Bears or about Jared Allen? Oh wait. The answer is the same either way. “Nobody that matters.”

    As a Texans fan you are obviously referring to the only other questionable hit on Schaub right? ……

    Are you still mad about that Schaub hit?

    Wow. Watch the play. He was falling (after a block, I should add) and couldn’t re-establish his feet, just went for the hit.

    Just focus on winning the game…A loss here with GB coming up could spell disaster, and the end of Lovie’s days as coach if the Bears miss the playoffs again.

    yeah, i mean, even though he injured a guy so bad that he was knocked out for the year on a hit that the nfl said was bad, (you know, since they fined him) he’s not dirty like suh. who, despite being 300 lbs and the dirtiest player in the league, has never managed to injure anyone. hmmmmmmmmmmm.

    JA has 113 career sacks, and the only QB injured is Schaub, who didn’t think it was dirty. JA crawled over and tackled him, he didn’t dive at his knee. No QB has ever gotten a concussion from JA, which says something. He doesn’t get roughing penalties either.

    When JA hit Louis, he didn’t take a full run and leave his feet – he took 1 or 1.5 steps and left his feet. Big difference, and a lot different than what Sapp did to Clifton. Then he hit the guy in chest/head and he hurts his knee. That’s just bad luck.

    he hit the guy in the head, that’s not “bad luck”, that’s “against the rules”. lol.

    Yeah, it’s against the rules, so he got fined. But I really doubt he did it intentionally. Also, the guy had no head injury, so it obviously wasn’t a severe blow to the head.

    No doubt he wanted to give him a good shot. I don’t feel he wanted to hurt him, it has not been his style of play through the years. I think if he really wanted to hurt him, Jared would have driven through at knee level. He had the time to go low.

    I hope so than the Vikes can get Lovie as coach

    And of course you would callously wish for Allen to maim Cutler, since Cutler and the Bears have owned you since Jay’s second start vs. the Vikes in ’09.

    That ‘Maim Cutler’ stuff is out of line, I want to see the Vikes win and no one to get hurt. Grow up folks.
