    Starting QB 2019???

    For $3.5M it’s an excellent deal. I just don’t want them to stop here.

    I hope there’s more to their plan. What a blah move.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Agree on the Kirk pick, but I’m still happy about the other three. And that they are finally using this strategy. Positive step forward...

    Starting QB 2019???

    It’d be a relationship where both teams clearly trust the other. Could help a deal get done. Conversely, I’d be surprised to see a trade with 49ers, but I guess you never know.

    Skins deserve credit for their 2019 Comp. Picks. Always used to wonder why they didn’t use this strategy. Finally coming around.

    Mortensen just said on ESPN not to rule the Arizona Cardinals out RE: Kyler Murray. Other execs have told him they hired Klingsberry for a reason, and wouldn’t be surprised by the pick. Could put Rosen on the trade block.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    After the Tampa game I thought they might be close. The team played with an impressive confidence that day. Obviously they seemed very far away after the second Giants game. They won games early in the season, but we’re hardly dominant. How close are they (assuming they get a winning QB ... huge assumption)? It’s certainly up for debate. If they think they’re that close they’ll probably go after a proven vet like Dalton.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I recognize I’m in the minority, but I thought Bruce came off well this week. Enough so that he should speak more often. No matter what he said, he was going to be hammered by some media members. But I felt much better having that guy in charge than the Cerrato / Zorn connection. His points were logical. I’d still rather have a top, proven personnel guy like an Ozzie Newsome, but I think Bruce and Snyder are their own worst enemies by not talking more. They let the negativity build up too much. i’m also getting tired of the nonstop negativity towards the team. Not that they don’t deserve much of it due to their overall body of work under Snyder, but it’s gotten a little over the top. I’m intrigued to see how they respond this off-season. The pressure is decidedly on.

    This DC thing was all Snyder (classic Snyder actually). Bruce likely wanted to keep the current DC to maintain both chemistry and Tomsula. Shows that Snyder is starting to jump in a bit. Wouldn’t surprise me if we see more of the same this offseason.
  10. If I had to guess: Jets are willing to offer the DC job to Gregg site unseen (thus the existing negotiating window). Gruden prefers to keep Manusky. Snyder implored Allen to look at Gregg as DC. Skins/Gruden agreed to meet with Gregg, but won’t just offer the job until they’ve met and can feel good about working together. Allen’s appeasing Snyder by bringing Gregg in, but also backing Jay by requiring a meeting to be held before a formal offer is provided.
  11. Jason La Canfora was just on The Other Pregame Show this morning. Said Gregg Williams will be negotiating with the Jets today. If deal doesn’t get done, Dan Snyder has Redskins One standing by to bring him to Washington. London Fletcher (also on) said Snyder regrets letting Williams go in 2008 for Zorn, and that the players loved Gregg.

    If the Redskins do bring in a new President of Football Operations, hope is they either choose someone with a proven track record of success in a front office or a hot up-and-comer. It’s not a great year to hire a head coach with 8 other openings, but it could be an awesome year to hire a front office exec. with no other openings. Examples of preferred targets: Experienced GM: Ozzie Newsome would be ideal. Already friends with Doug. Proven success in the NFL. Only 62. Retiring from Ravens after this year. Played at Alabama (along with much of our roster). Or Up and Comer GM: Eliot Wolf. Currently Assistant GM of the Browns. Comes from the Packers scouting tree. Supposedly adept eye for talent. Not Exciting: Hiring an old coach to run the front office (e.g. Marvin Lewis) Hiring an old GM that underachieved (e.g. Charlie Casserly). Keeping the status quo w/ Bruce. Skins fans have learned their lesson. We need a real Front Office Leader.
