    Congrats to Allen he played a good game and the INT was impressive. Good things to come for this player....I think he will make us proud in the future.

    Jason Allen's INT was more a product of a bad throw than a good play by Allen....but, at least he hung onto the ball. :)

    Nice to see J. Allen contribute. He needs much more playing time the rest of the year.

    He had a great game on the limited reps he got. Made a great play on the ball when he batted it down... and then had an INT. What a game by the rook! Get this kid some more playing time!

    He didn't do anything, he was just in the right place at the right time. But it is better then the absolute nothing hes done in the rest of the season.

    Believe it or not, that's a big part of the game. Jason Allen has looked good when he's been on the field; he's shown good coverage ability and amazing closing speed. He's got great physical attributes, he'll be a great player if he can learn to be in the right place at the right time.

    Yes.....Grossman horribly over threw the ball. The announcers even went as far as saying "8 feet over his year" when referring to the ball placement in relation to the reciever.

    He was in decent position to make the tackle, the bare minimum that I would expect out of an NFL safety.

    He was in the right place at the right time by pure chance.

    Allen gave up a TD by playing the receiver instead of the ball, then got the
    interception to even out his card.

    I'm going to hold any comment on his future greatness or lack there of.

    Next year should be a good indicator.?

    That was Will Allen not Jason Allen.

    No excuses from the doubters there. Allen was in the right place to make a tackle if that ball was caught and made an INCREDIBLE leap to get it. That was no easy catch. Remember DB's are DB's for a reason and not WR's. That was almost Chambers like.

    Yea, the man seemed to make an impact even if he was the 5th DB in. Totore u been one of the people really standing up for this team and guys like Allen and it really shows truth to be patient with guys and this team on days like this.

    Allen and Bell could be a good combo for us next year at the safety positions. Will Allen played poorly I thought but then again the Guinesses were flowing so I'm not sure

    The interception wasn't very impressive, but his overall game was. Great job for Jason Allen. I except great things out of this kid.

    Both bell and Allen made plays, which is something that our secondary has desperately needed. Whether or not they where almost coincidence is somewhat irrelevant because we've seen Tillman and Hill struggling to do even that.

    What?

    Did you even see the play? :shakeno: He broke up the pass, knocked it into the air and then brought it down, it was a GREAT Int.

    First of all, NO interceptions are unimpressive (unless its a hail mary with 10 seconds to go in any half).

    Second, this guy has seen VERY little playing time in the first 7 games.

    I think what we saw out of him today was FAR better than any other DB we have seen in that package ( Nickle, dime? )

    Third! All DBs get BURNED their first year. JA will. JA will also make some plays for us, as hes shown today.

    Let the kid play!!!

    I thought he did GREAT today:)

    P.S YB is teh Sheet!!! (We have good things to look forward to miami:))

    Agreed and Y. Bell getting into the starting lineup was overdue as well. Allen looked much moire comfertable and is starting to make an impact.

    It looks like maybe you're the one who didn't see the play.

    Allen was behindthe intended receiver, desmond clark, the ball was way over-thrown(a good pass would have been an easy completion) , Allen jumped up and caught it. There was no pass break-up and there was no "knocking it into the air".

    Exactly right.

    Not exactly right. Allen did tip it up in the air before catching it, and wouldn't have been able to make the catch any other way. He slowed it down with the tip and when it dropped he latched onto it. I'll try to post a clip of it here in a day or so.

    I'd agree with that. Still doesn't equal "knocking it into the air".....He stopped it and then grabbed it.

    No pass breaking-up involved at all.

    Yeah, definitely no pass break up. Definitely several feet behind the receiver!

    and guess who has been his biggest critic?? ME....but great players make plays because they are always around the ball...It was awesome watching him pick that off..I literally jumped out of my seat at the sportbar..man was it great..........Im not ready to call him a future pro bowler..but it was nice to see him produce.


    This is one week we need to spend more time on this board PRAISING players and coaches rather than questioning them

    Lol at "right place at the right time"

    Well I'll take that on every single play for the rest of the year for all of our players, we can win the season out!

    That was a great play by Jason Allen, the way he tipped the ball into the air and caught his own deflection, the first of many more to come. It was good to see all the other defenders congratulating him on the play, they know he is going to be a fixture in the secondary for many years.

    I've been saying all along that Allen was a great pick at 16. Being a Georgia fan, I got to see the guy up close and personal for years. The only thing that's suprising about anything he's done is that it's taken him so long to get on the field. Saban's scheme must be crucial.

    The jury is FOR SURE still out on him being a great pick....but it was nice to finally see a good solid performance out of him.

    The same can be said for probably 60-75% of interceptions we see in this league.

    Despite Renaldo Hill's interception, I still think he's the WORST starter on this team. Yeremiah Bell is an excellent player, and I'd like to see a Bell/Jason Allen duo at safety.
