Jared Allen Prospect Preview (http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/jared_allen)

Sure, he was a 4th rounder, but Tambi had a better 40 time and more reps on bench...

My point being, I think 40 time and measurables might be overrated when it comes to drafting a productive defensive end. Jared Allen has been phenomenal.

I think we have a starter for years to come.

What a reach that one was. :Poke:

His numbers totally suck and he should be cut immediately.

I could be wrong here, but I think I read Bush did 20+ reps of 225...that's sick.

I remember that was the first picture I saw of him and all I could think is why did we draft a 40 year old bouncer of a gay bar!

In the mid 60's, believe it or not, most football players did not lift weights. Hard to believe, I know, considering their explosion on weights and steroids since then. I spent 13 months in Korea from 68-69. I was 23 years old and had lifted weights all through high school. But I never did it right until Korea. Then I started lifting for bulk as I was 5'10" and 150 lbs when I got there. I went with heavy weights and low repetitions to gain bulk. When I left Korea I was at 165 pounds after a year of lifting. I was doing three reps of 225 three times every other day. I maxed at 245#. I could do 4 reps of 225 easily. In 1968! At 165#!! I then went back to Coffeyville College and took weightlifting of course. It was full of football players and the instructor was the football coach. I smoked all of those guys and they didn't like it a bit. Their big stud middle LB couldn't bench 225 once. The coach would point at me and taunt them "Are you gonna let that scrawny white guy do that to you"? I also had a much better vertical leap than they did. Of course I did. I did a hell of a lot of squats in Korea. Point being, nobody lifted weights back then except me and Joe Don Looney.

Why didn't he offer you a spot on the squad?

Good question. We talked about it and he decided I had white man's disease. I ran too slow and jumped too low. Yeah right, I just outjumped everybody you have. I thought I was another Steve Largent and maybe could have been with better coaching. I also won the 1962 State Golf championship at the 3A level. Eat your heart out, Jim Thorpe.

In the 1960's, you would have been Steve Largent before Steve Largent.

I'm sure you're right. Probably more like 98%. I loved the guy when I was young and recently got the book (Third and Long) I think, out of the Bartlesville Library and read it. He was a tall (6'2") and 220 lbs. that ran a 9'6 hundred. (They didn't do 40's back then). He could also punt the ball clear out of sight. Hey! This was in the 60's, Joe Don could make anybody's roster today all things considered.
