    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Yes Vinnie was not a NFL top-caliber GM. He had the job because he was willing to play ball. He sucked too. But I’ve wondered specifically why the Skins have never won under Snyder, and this article says a lot. Can we all say for certain that things have changed? Improved ... I think so. But changed, especially with Russini’s reports during the draft? I don’t know.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I believe, based on overwhelming circumstantial evidence, that Dan did it and continues to on rarer occasion. It stays relatively quiet because people are getting paid under non-disclosure agreements. I also don’t think it’s a coincidence we’ve lost competent, but less flashy QBs Brad Johnson and Kirk Cousins well before other teams would’ve. Dan was a marketing guru, he likes flashy players that sell tickets. He’s the anti-Patriots. All of this would be fine if we were consistently winning ... but we haven’t. I think Bruce keeps us on the rails, drafts have gotten better. But this interview was definitely revealing. It’s what I hoped wasn’t happening, but was. Vinnie is a lot of things, but his comments ring true.

    This Cerrato interview is significant. Snyder was overruling scouts in the draft room for years. How can you compete with organizations like the Patriots with such actions? No wonder we couldn’t win.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.
