    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    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.

    Is Pryor worth Keeping?

    I don't think he is worth keeping based off last year's performance, but I could be wrong. I'm no talent elevator. Can someone answer this though: There were rumors during the middle of the season of a potential Pryor trade. I remember Cleveland's name being thrown around. Were those rumors true and what would we have gotten in return? If there was never any intention of bringing him back why wasn't he just traded then? .

    All-Time Record as GM / Executive VP / President: 90-117- 1 (.4348) Record as GM / Executive VP / President with Redskins: 52-75-1 (.4094) Record as GM etc. with Redskins minus McCloughan years: 35-61 (.3646) 13 NFL seasons, 4 playoff appearances: 30.7% Boo.

    https://twitter.com/thomloverro/status/960239048785825794 Also, time to update those standings. Jerry Jones (1989) - 4 NFCCG Appearances, 3 Super Bowl Appearances, 3 Super Bowls Jeff Lurie (1994) - 6 NFCCG Appearances, 2 Super Bowl Appearances, 1 Super Bowl John Mara (2005) - 2 NFCCG Appearances, 2 Super Bowl Appearances, 2 Super Bowls Dan Snyder (1999) - 0 NFCCG Appearances, 0 Super Bowl Appearances, 0 Super Bowls Is it any surprise that Snyder and Jones, two similar owners, have had the least amount of success the past 20 years relative to the rest of the division?

    Well it looks like he's back to being employed, so even if there was no gag order there would be no need to speak on it at this point. Does his hiring back in the NFL give any indication of what happened while he was here or how the grievance played out? https://twitter.com/mortreport/status/960162200466833408

    So who can we blame for this move? Allen? Williams? Or maybe they took a vote? Very effective. It sure would be nice if we knew who had final say and signed off on the deal. If you make a move and have faith that it will pan out then you should have no issue with saying that it was your call. Maybe we'll find out in the next couple of days but I'm not holding my breath.

    This was posted in the Kirk thread but I thought it was worth a mention since it's primarily about Allen. Washington Times: Losing Cousins should be last straw for Bruce Allen

Howie Roseman has the Eagles playing for a Super Bowl soon after Chip dismantled that team. Meanwhile Snyder and Allen are spinning their wheels. Is there any hope for this team?

    I hope this is just speculation on Rappaport's part.

    So Williams is asked about his new role and his first response is that it's good to not have someone with the GM title. Umm... ok. Why is this a good thing? After checking, I see there are only three teams in the NFL without a GM: the Patriots, the Eagles, and the Redskins. The rest of his response seems to imply that McCloughan overstepped his boundaries, or was perceived to have overstepped his boundaries by people in the Front Office. He also states that he doesn't deal with the equipment manager, trainers, etc. and "overlooks the personnel department". It sounds like he won't be doing the nitty gritty of scouting players and will simply manage the personnel people, which is not necessarily a bad thing since his reputation as a scout isn't renowned. So the structure appears to be: Snyder -> Allen -> Williams -> Everyone else reporting to Williams IMO this is essentially Williams "playing" the role of GM (without the title) and the people who report to him doing the dirty work. And if history is any indication, Allen will make sure his voice is heard in decisions. I still believe accountability is an issue with this structure. If this is really how things are set up just give him the GM title with the same responsibilities he outlined.

    Not sure how legitimate SportingNews is or how credible the author is, but could there be any truth to this? SN: Bucs should keep Dirk Koetter as coach, for sake of Jameis Winston This is the first I've heard of "rumors" about Allen leaving and it seems unlikely.
