    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Awesome. Yet another score by the front office!

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread Honestly, I find this hard to believe. How does Snyder not see the attendance at games? What gets said by the local media? The results on the field? Declining revenues? Honestly?

    If Danny is really that confused, he's just about as dumb as I suspected. In fact, probably even moreso.

    Who should be the next head coach for the Skins

    Honestly, the only way things change are if the league intervenes and forces Danny to sell. Hard stop.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    NFL needs to force Snyder to sell. Isn't good for one of the marquee franchises to be willfully destroyed like this. Frankly, in an era where the league needs to do all it can to protect it's brand, the state of the Skins (in a top TV market) can't be sitting well with the brass at HQ.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    You mean like he did during the long, painful departure of Scot McCloughan? This is totally not out of the realm of possibility.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I think you said it right there - a terrible decision for the franchise taken just one week ago - Foster. For sure this is a Snyder move (with maybe equal parts Allen). He also signed off on the ludicrous trade/contract for Alex Smith. You'll have to forgive me for not believing that leopard has changed his spots (or however the saying goes...)

    The Morning After thread

    We cannot let anyone other than the new GM get to choose the next HC. The HC then gets to hire his staff. You know - like normal teams do.
  9. After what @Skinsinparadise posted and the fact that this season is lost, why would you bring in Kelvin Benjamin? No thanks.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Agree with everything you wrote except the part I highlighted in yellow. I believe this is a major issue for him. Can't really explain his consistent pattern of hiring yes-men any other way.
  11. I don't trust in Snyder's intellect/managerial acumen to do otherwise.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    So you're saying he is a poor judge of talent? Among all of the other criticisms I have of Snyder, this is definitely one of them. But they are all related in my view.

    Combination of insecurity and a low IQ. When you combine that with a lot of money and absolute power, it is dangerous and a recipe for continued failure.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Our D-line has increasingly looked middle of the pack as the season has gone on. We don't look dominant at all. AND we can't get to the QB. That's the whole point of a dominant DL.
  15. As a fan, I agree with your rationale for getting rid of Doug. But if you were Snyder, isn't a fall guy what you look for in a top executive? I assume that, paradoxically, he would be seeking that out not using it as cause for getting rid of someone.
