  1. It's definitely something Bruce would try, but all members of an ownership group have to be approved via 24 votes of current NFL owners. With Bruce's rep, it's hard to imagine 24 owners being okay with him being a permanent fixture to an organization already in disarray.

    Bruce will somehow convince Dan that it's envious hate, like the hate towards the Pats. Nothing to see here.

    Bruce has no shame. He comes here, sullies the Allen name, knows full well that he's in over his head but doesn't care. For any other human being, inheriting a father's legacy and completely botching it would cause for many sleepless nights but ole Bruce naps like a baby amidst one losing season after another. He's a really special guy. I'm sure he knows he'll never accomplish a stadium deal in an ideal location and will leave the organization with his head held high after he's cut the ceremonial ribbon to open our new home in Allegany County.

    How likely is it that Snyder will even get the new stadium? In Virginia, Ralph Northam isn't as cozy with Snyder or the Redskins as Terry McAuliffe was. Snyder probably doesn't want to be in Maryland any more. The DC landscape has changed dramatically since RFK. The transients could give two licks about the Skins or the name and they'll be damned if they get stuck with the bill for a new stadium. I suspect Bruce is playing Dan like a fiddle and knows that getting a new stadium in the ideal location is a pipe dream given all the factors and the current quality of the product.
  5. The loss of profit thing is overstated. Whatever money the NFL has lost resulting from the Redskins implosion has been more than made up by the resurgent Los Angeles market spearheaded by the Rams and the Chargers, two teams that made the playoffs and helped rejuvenate fan interest in an alpha world city. Face it, we're stuck.

    Trade up to draft Haskins???

    I don't think Allen or Gruden should be allowed to orchestrate the upcoming draft in a manner where the repercussions would be felt many years beyond their tenure here, this means blowing our future draft picks and leaving the next regime with scraps. If they want to fumble our 2019 draft picks, by all means, but Snyder needs to prohibit them from touching anything after that, especially if they're not going to be here.

    If you're willing to endure another 20-30 years of this, you deserve it. Not me, brother. I'm giving this circus another 3 years max to turn things around before I'm out and become just a "football fan."
  8. Gregg hasn't been a permanent HC since the Bills back 15 years ago. Wonder what the deal is.
  9. Jay Gruden promised some big changes were coming and so far he hasn't disappointed, can't wait for the parking lot manager to get reassigned as the concession stand supervisor.

    Redskins Cut DJ Swearinger!

    Players don't create nor as responsible for the culture. All things start from the top.
  11. Snyder must have all his employees sign an NDA. I'm surprised by the lack of backlash and whistleblowing from former employees, regarding the ineptitude and toxicity of this organization.

    What do YOU want to happen?

    I just want Snyder gone. He's in way over his head and has no business running a professional football organization.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Being better than Vinny or Zorn isn't some accolade worth mention. We've simply gone from making imbecilic choices to making poor ones. Yes, our situation could get worse but at the end of the day it's all about winning a Super Bowl not just improving our standing and being capped short of the ultimate prize. Bruce isn't capable of building a winner and Jay isn't capable of coaching men into one, so in that regard they're equal to their predecessors and should be equally condemned.

    Retain Jay For 2019?

    No. Jay will get you 10 wins max when and if the stars align, all before they break rank once more in the playoffs. I want to see what a new coach can do with this team once it's healthy again next year, rather than squander more years from the shelf life of core players on a known and undesired commodity.

    Who should be the next head coach for the Skins

    Even GMs aren't immune to ownership influence. Snyder, his family, and close friends are entrenched in the organization, and it would take a miracle for an outsider to come in and reverse the situation without calling negative attention to himself from the powers that be. I've worked for companies where agents of positive change come in just to get guillotined by members of the old guard for not doing things "their" way, then get dismissed because he/she was never really one of them any way. Only one person can reverse all of this and bring real change to the organization and he's yet to demonstrate that he's capable of doing it.

    The thing is, it's hard to imagine Bruce or anyone for that matter manage the salary cap without having some influence or say on the personnel to which our salary cap is tied. It's like putting someone in charge of your personal budget without giving them privileged access or control of your expense items. Bruce will want some of that control, because in his mind it's the only way to do his core job effectively. And with his personal ties to this organization and the region, he'll understandably not want to be relegated exclusively to unglamorous number-crunching duties. With that said, I simply want him gone because he's assumed a leadership role with the Redskins and there isn't a single leader worth a damn in that front office. Accountability needs to stressed and people need to realize the present order of things is unacceptable.

    As a 'Skins fan you should always be encouraged to watch the games: either you're hopeful we'll win and go to the Super Bowl, or you're hopeful we'll lose to see us one step closer to a regime change. It's edge-of-your-seat excitement either way.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Not sure about that, to be honest. I think Gregg would have been HC in 2008 had Gibbs fully endorsed him before departing, which could explain the awkward and prolonged HC search in that offseason which ultimately led to the unexpected hire of Zorn. My hunch is that the 'Skins were set to promote Gregg but Gibbs wouldn't put his full support behind the decision.

    Does the Amazon HQ2 deal for Crystal City in any way affect a stadium proposal for Virginia, considering the 570m in subsidies Virginians will be on the hook for and the additional 270m in transportation/infrastructure investment?

    Tom Brady would have been mismanaged and miscoached were it not for the fertile foundation of winning New England had established. Do you think he'd be as successful in Washington had we drafted him instead of Quincy Sanders?

    He's done everything we asked but build a winning franchise. No one knows the specifics as to how that can be achieved (we don't have the answers) but it's his job to figure out those details and so far he's done a piss-poor job of doing that.

    There goes our dream of securing a first or second round selection in exchange for his services.

    Bruce Allen maintains some important ties to the region - most of which through his family - so don't expect him to suffer the embarrassment of a mid-season firing.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I'm not sure why people assume the Raiders will bring in either Bruce or Jay. You don't hype up the locals of a new town by hiring losers and if any city knows losers it's Vegas.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    We never had a chance to keep him, since his promotion would mean Jay's dismissal and Sean wasn't going to do that to him.
