RIP Larry Allen


Recommended Posts

One of the best ever. And he owns perhaps the best sheer hustle play I’ve seen by any player, let alone a player of that size.

Way too young to go. He was like a forcefield pushing back and defender 3-7 yards down the line of scrimmage. He was a 2nd team All-Pro in 1995 and then proceeded to be first team All-Pro from 1996-2001 he made the Pro-Bowl in all of those season and then made the Pro-Bowl again later in his career from 2003-2006 and again as an alternate in 2007 his last year (and this was when the Pro-Bowl still meant a lot as far as a reflection of where players were at). He won a Super Bowl in 1995 and was an all decade team member in the 1990's and 2000's. Easily one of the most dominant guards ever gone too soon.

There are crazy, ridiculous athletes in this game with RAS scores off the charts. And then there’s Larry Allen who was on a whole different planet where they didn’t even allow charts. Unbelievable. He made NFL players look average.
