  1. Why are so many fans eager for them to trade away picks? The team stinks. Will most likely end up with a high pick every round. They already don't have a 2nd next year. The organization isn't close to winning, despite what they think. Ramsey or Fitzpatrick isn't going to change that.

    He said “Gregg Williams type”, which I took to mean a disciplinarian. Not a player’s coach like Jay Gruden. Someone like Zimmer, who they should have pursued instead of Gruden.

    I agree. I also think Snyder would never hire someone like that as head coach.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    It seems that for the most part Kyle is in charge of the draft and Bruce is in charge of pro personnel. The last few drafts have been praised by fans and analysts, while our FA acquisitions have been nothing special, at least in my view. That offseason was baffling. It seemed to be a foregone conclusion that they would keep either Jackson or Garçon, and let the other walk yet they end up letting both go. The offense was most dynamic when they were the starting WRs (along with Kirk at QB) and it hasn’t been the same since.

    Did Gibbs (1.0) ever call out his staff? Legitimate question.

    I could definitely see the "the roster is young and learning" angle being played. In regard to Haskins, if Gruden gets fired at the end of the year they've put themselves in a position where they'll have to hire someone who is sold on Haskins or at least says they are. Remember that Gruden was brought here to "fix" Griffin.

    My point is the front office won't take any responsibility for another year of mediocre results. It's never their fault. Gruden has had plenty of time. Do we really need to see more to know that he's an average coach at best? They tried to replace Manusky. I've lost count of how many Defensive Coordinators there have been during the Gruden Era. The problems with the organization are bigger than coaching. It starts at the top.

    So what will be the excuse this year when the team has another underwhelming season and fails to make the playoffs? Injuries?

    I'm going to throw out a wild prediction and guess Marvin Lewis. Checks all the boxes. 1) Flashy name 2) Familiarity with Jay 3) Former Skin It would also fall in line with them being more excited about it than fans. I am curious to see who (if anyone) is named as new Team President, if the rumblings are to be believed.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice... Looking like Allen got fleeced by Reid again. That trade is 100% on him.

    You are probably referencing the below. TheFanDC: Why Dan Snyder's so furious with Bruce Allen Also, from earlier today. If you trust Chris Ruusell, which I tend to because he's been right about FO things in the past, then that's strike 2 for Doug Williams. Wouldn't be surprised if they start limiting his interviews. https://twitter.com/russellmania621?lang=en

    Hard to tell if they were truly upset or not without actually hearing the tone in his response during the interview, but I'm not surprised there is a lack of communication in the front office.

    Season is still early, but the team looks like it has in the past: inconsistent. Gruden is in his fifth year. Allen, his ninth. It doesn't look like this formula is going to work. I would hope after this year that he is judged on a combination of the following: 1) The results of this season 2) How well Smith performs 3) How well Cousins performs in Minnesota I want this team to win. I do not see it happening with the current leadership. https://twitter.com/andypollin1/status/1041431568370360321 The fanbase is growing apathetic.
