    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    After watching his bizarre interview with Dan Patrick, I definitely have questions about him. Doesn't seem like his heart is really in football and doesn't strike me as a natural leader. But who knows? If I'm right, Bruce will likely trade the house for him.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    In that card pictured above from Bruce, the guy he was responding to is named "Kevin" and he wrote something that looks like "Kesis", lol. Must be that same rare southern dialect that caused that other infamous mispronunciation. Guess it affects writing ability, too. I'm sure he wasn't drunk when he wrote that. Positive. It's time for a new thread: "HIS NAME IS KEVIN!"
  3. I thought the reporters were a bunch of pansies yesterday, up until near the end when one brave soul asked about the "FireBruce" campaign. Sure, he's always going to give a non-answer, but call him on it and press him harder. These guys love to talk so tough when they're on radio shows, then when they actually get a chance to talk to the guy, they clam up (for the most part). I know Jason Reid isn't a popular guy, but I absolutely loved how he hammered Allen in 2014. Apparently that's one of the reasons Allen stopped doing pressers, as he was so embarrassed and humiliated to have been held to the fire like that and called on his non-stop BS. If he stops doing them again because someone grills him, who cares? These guys have the chance that tons of fans wish they had. They don't have to make it some kind of pile-on insult fest, of course, but there's a way to ask him those questions in a professional way. I mean, the one reporter asks him how he should be judged on his tenure here based on his record, and he responds, "We're 7-9," never once taking responsibility for the overall horrendous record of his ten years here. And those reporters just accepted that and didn't follow up once? S-A-W-F-T.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I loved when a reporter asked him, "You said everyone in a football organization should be judged by the win-loss record. What do you say to fans and supporters who wonder how that applies to you?" And he responds, "Well, we're 7-9." LOL. Clearly the question was about his overall abysmal record since he's been here. What a pathetic dodge. Disappointed no one followed up on that.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I will never understand the whole "Bruce has to stay for the stadium" narrative. It makes no sense to me and never has. A guy who is QUANTIFIABLY horrible at his job; a guy the fanbase hates working for a guy who the fanbase and most of the community possibly hates more; a guy with a long-built reputation of being slimy, untrustworthy, vindictive; a guy with, as far as I can tell, zero public defenders willing to publicly align themselves with him or praise him in any capacity (except Snyder, of course) ... and THIS is the guy who's "indisposable" when it comes to getting a stadium deal in place??? It's never made any sense at all. Not to mention the fact that - in large part because of what this guy has done and how he's viewed - it can't even be guaranteed that a new stadium would draw in actual money-spending fans (unless they're from other cities/fanbases). Perhaps there's a "Brokeback Ashburn" kind of thing going on with these two (not that there's anything wrong with that). I can't think of any other possible reason why even an imbecile like Snyder would keep this guy around. #ToxicTwins

    This was posted in the coaching thread, but this particular line is more relevant here. From LaConfora's recent article on Snyder trying hard to get Bowles and Williams with ZERO success. So there's still a chance this clown gets reassigned? I'm actually loving all the ship-jumpers. Hope they're left with no one but youth flag football coaches. #FUFO https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/dan-snyders-pursuit-of-todd-bowles-gregg-williams-may-not-bode-well-for-jay-gruden-in-2020/
  7. The "report" in question comes from LaConfora. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/dan-snyders-pursuit-of-todd-bowles-gregg-williams-may-not-bode-well-for-jay-gruden-in-2020/ Was listening to Sheehan talk about this LaConfora report on his podcast today. Snyder practically laid the world at Bowles' feet, supposedly, and Bowles choose door number 2. Williams didn't even come to the Park at all for an interview. Love this line: What a time to be a Redskins fan!
  8. Wow. Well, he's undefeated against Dallas. I'll remember him fondly for that. What a terrible injury. I blame Bill Callahan.

    I honestly don't think any fanbase is feeling as bad as the Chiefs' right now. I can't imagine how badly that loss hurt, particularly that neutral zone infraction play. They had the game won right there. Their first Super Bowl in nearly 50 years. For just those few seconds, it was all theirs, and then ... to see that flag and to see such a ridiculous, easily-avoided penalty take that win away ... that is a mule kick to the spleen of epic proportions.

    I remember the Redskins benefitted greatly by a terrible call in the 1983 NFC Championship game against the Niners. We were up 21-0, and Moseley had missed at least 3 (maybe four) very makable FGs, which would've had us at 30 or 33-0. But the Niners roared back and tied the game at 21. We had the ball late in the fourth, and there was a truly terrible PI call on the Niners that put us in FG range. Finally, Moseley made a kick, and we win the game. But that call was talked about for a long time. The call yesterday was a lot worse. Just terrible. But to say the Rams "don't deserve it" is ridiculous. They came back from 13 down in that hostile crowd and played/coached a fantastic game.

    Brady drops the F-bomb in the postgame interview, lol. And the Chief who was in the neutral zone on what should've been the game-ending interception ... wow, that's gonna be a tough one to live down. But that defense ... what a disgrace. They looked like Manusky was calling in plays from his spider-hole. 3rd and 9? Complete. 3rd and 10? Same play to Edelman, complete. Over and over and over. Go, McVay, Go Wade.

    What the Patriots have done dwarfs anything the Skins did, or any other team for that matter. 6 of the last 7 Super Bowls they've been in. Let that sink in a minute. Mind-blowing.

    Pat are in full "**** you all, we're going to the SB again" mode.
  14. I don't see that at all. As has been shown and said in this thread, the Nazi phrase "Seig Heil" — ironically enough — translates to "Hail, Victory", not "We Hail." Just think about that for a second and how that relates to this debate and the stupidity of Snyder's reaction to "We Hail." It's kind of hilarious, really: "Sieg Heil" simply sounds more PHONETICALLY like "We Hail", even though it doesn't at all MEAN "We Hail". But of course Snyder just grasps at the lowest hanging fruit with no concern for or understanding of the bigger picture. I imagine the FO conversation went like this: Tony Wylie: "People are really pissed about Lafemina being fired." Snyder: "You know, I always thought that stupid 'We Hail' thing sounded like 'Seig Heil.' Let's leak that I was pissed by that, and that's one of the reasons we fired him. Everyone hates Nazis. What could they possibly say?" Wylie: "Well ... you know 'Seig Heil' actually translates to 'Hail Victory', right?" Snyder: "What's that got to do with anything?" Wylie: "Absolutely nothing, my lord. It shall be done." The whole thing is just further evidence as to how clueless and mentally lazy the guy is. What's even more ridiculous is that this is coming out now. Clearly Snyder APPROVED the "We Hail" message at the time of its inception. So what kind of owner would approve something they thought resembled a Nazi salute in the first place if he was that upset by it? And NOW he plays that card? Clearly it didn't bother him that much at the time. And if it had been successful and fans had rallied around it, he wouldn't be saying a word, and we all know it. So THAT would make him someone who values fiscal success over his own value system (whatever that is). I'm calling complete bull**** on yet another PR fail from the worst-run organization in sports.

    That Chiefs pick was the equivalent of the Ram's fake punt. Which was friggin' BRILLIANT by McVay, btw. We'll see where it leads.
