NFC North Rivals – 5 Questions with The Viking Age

1 of 5

It’s the off-season and we have been focusing on what the Bears have done in free agency. Let us not forget that we have 3 NFC North teams that are also addressing needs and making moves as well. To get some insight on our NFC North Division rivals, we have contacted our frienemies at fellow fansided sites to bring you “NFC North Rivals – 5 Questions”. Today’s questions are being answered by Adam B. Carlson from The Viking Age, the Minnesota Vikings Fansided site.

How upset are Vikings fans that Jared Allen has moved on and joined the Chicago Bears?

"There seems to be two very divergent groups about this. One group is happy that the Vikings decided to go with a younger player on a much smaller deal. Others think that Minnesota won’t be able to match the production that Jared got and the attention he demanded. Either way, he’s an excellent player that deserves only the best going forward. He does so many great things on and off the field, that it is hard to dislike the guy."
