Jared Allen Wants To Vomit When He Thinks About Minnesota Vikings' Record

Jared Allen and the Minnesota Vikings aren't having a very good season, especially when looking back at Sunday night's 39-10 loss to the Chicago Bears. One might liken Minnesota's current season to the classic children's book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, but the Vikings' defensive end thinks even less of the Vikings' current 1-5 record.

"It makes me want to vomit," Allen told the Star Tribune. "I've never been 1-5 ever."

That probably won't ever make it into the title of a popular children's book. Allen's sentiments on the season for the Vikings thus far seem to sum everything up pretty well, however.

"When the defense is playing good, the offense isn't playing good. When the offense is playing good, the defense isn't playing good. When we need special teams to come up big, they're not. You know what I mean? We've had some positive areas that showed greatness all year, but at the time it needs to be all in sync, we're not. That's something we've got to fix."

With the Vikings playing the undefeated Green Bay Packers next week, that might not be easy to do.
