    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    It’s part of why I can’t fathom how any self respecting fan of this team can actually get behind this guy in any capacity. He looks like exactly what he is. It’s not like he looks the part and has charisma that can deter folks from his ineptitude.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    So I just took the time to watch the whole thing, what I got out of it was: marketing firings and hirings: we’ve hired some guys that have enthusiasm on #firebruceallen: blah winning want to win blah win need to win blah on with his poor record why is he the guy to lead this team: because he has a passion for winning pretty much everything else: ”not gonna get into that” Did I miss anything?

    I’m glad to know Bruce shares our passion for winning. When I think of what I want out of the guy leading my favorite team, his passion for winning sits at the top.

    I’m not defending his ineptitude, I just think they are both equally dreadful in their own ways.

    I don’t think Ross’s head is buried any deeper than Dan. Atleast Ross is making a change. Doesn’t mean it will work but he’s atleast cognizant enough to realize what they were doing didn’t work and needs to try something else.
  6. “Blind hate” That’s probably the most complimentary take I’ve ever seen, Dan would probably shed a tear reading that if he cared enough to read what fans say about him. When you are absolutely awful at your job for a few decades and have exponentially more blunders and wrong-doing than you have successes, people tend to pile on. That’s not exclusive to poor Dan.

    Not only that, but the last matchup of Rams Chiefs was the most entertaining game in a very long time.

    Watching the NFL playoffs

    The point of this thread really hits home the further the playoffs go on. For Dan and Bruce to watch these games and actually think “but if not for the injuries”... It really makes me wonder if either one of them actually believes that they are anywhere in the vicinity of ever playing one of these games. I realize they are hacks in their profession, but I find it very hard to believe that they are so delusional that they really believe what they’ve put together even at its very best and fully healthy is remotely close.

    Redskins Lose Another Coach: LB Olivadotti Headed to GB

    Not shedding any tears over his departure, but... God bless whoever replaces KO and is expected to make Mason fast and ZB smart, something no professional coach has ever been able to do.

    Poll: How are you choosing to be a Redskins fan right now?

    Not at all, it was just an odd statement that I don’t think fits the the category in the least.

    Poll: How are you choosing to be a Redskins fan right now?

    Right. Nothing sports related makes my stomach turn like praising the Cowboys. But I’m also honest and can sadly admit that they are usually better and in a better spot than us in just about every way.

    I suspect you are a much better business owner than Dan Snyder while making a pittance in comparison. I don’t suspect you are begging tax payers for money to fund upgrades to your business either.

    The myth that good coaches will not come to Washington - Wade Phillips book excerpt

    No, most everyone in the real world is aware that Bruce is absolutely awful at his job and a hinderance to attracting a good head coach.

    The myth that good coaches will not come to Washington - Wade Phillips book excerpt

    If by my world, you mean the real world, sure. There’s also no guarantee that whomever is selected to replace Bruce will be a person that attracts quality head coaching candidates.

    The myth that good coaches will not come to Washington - Wade Phillips book excerpt

    Sure. That’s pretty much the entire argument though, that he will never land a big fish If they have to answer to a guy like Bruce.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The more and more you post I’m convinced that you’ve been planted by Dan or Bruce, perhaps related or something of that nature. I’m not even saying that as a joke or to be snarky. It’s the only logical reason to defend them and hate the meanie media like they do.

    The myth that good coaches will not come to Washington - Wade Phillips book excerpt

    Only it’s now 10 years further into his ownership that have only added more and more reasons to not want to work here, the way things went down with Shanny being part of the soup.

    The myth that good coaches will not come to Washington - Wade Phillips book excerpt

    Sure, Dan may land a coveted coach again...in a coaching market where there are more coveted candidates than there are openings. Washington will never be a coveted place to be a head coach until the FO is right. In every industry, one of the most important things is who you report to.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The two don’t really correlate but it’s just another log on the blazing fire that is hatred for Snyder. His team stinks, his fanbase is dying off and he doesn’t have the balls to speak to them nor the balls to force Bruce to do it. Instead he’s taking luxurious vacations and trying to increase the size of his anatomy by purchasing yet another yacht.

    @Skinsinparadise Everything you’re saying makes total sense and I agree that the best possible thing that can happen for the long term is to have an awful season to further force Dan’s hand. That said, it’s still very early in the offseason. I don’t believe they will roll into the next season with Colt as starter. I fully expect some level of splash, whether that’s trading up to draft a flashy QB or something else. Something that will inevitably cause the team to win just enough not to be picking at the top of the 2020 draft. I also don’t expect the stadium deal to be a done deal by next offseason either, meaning more Bruce. If there is one thing the Skins have been really good at, it’s not giving us what we want and need. So they will find a way to scrape up 6 wins and put themselves in a position to give up the farm for Tua or whomever.

    Poll: How are you choosing to be a Redskins fan right now?

    Spot on. The choice was made long, long ago. Even then I never looked at it as a choice. I was born into it during the glory years. Growing up in PG county in the 80’s it was all Redskins all the time. I recall my grandfather joining the gunshots in the air after The Super Bowl against the Broncos. I recall the blowout of the Bills in the Super Bowl vividly and remember my mom letting me skip school to go to work with her and attend the parade and her buying me more memorabilia than she could afford. It’s ingrained in me, there is no choice. One can never muster the same level of enthusiasm, adrenaline, etc. for another team when it’s become part of who you are. Even though I know this organization is ran by buffoons that are so inept they can’t even luck into anything meaningful, and if they do they will screw that up too, I still get amped on Sunday during games. However that light is flickering. The only game this past season I could recall really feeling any level of that enthusiasm and adrenaline was the Dallas home game. At this point, there is nothing short of drafting a QB that is instantly awesome that masks the deficiencies of everything else, that can reignite the flame. That or cleaning house and hiring the absolute best replacements that have no connection to this current group of bozos in charge.

    24/7 Wall Street: Redskins one of most hated companies

    I don’t think the article is meant to be an uber serious, in-depth investigative piece. Just look at it. That said, are there any other professional sports teams in the big four, that have the amount of vocal fan displeasure as this one does right now? The reasons they provided certainly play into it at some level.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    This is something I’ve never been able to wrap my head around. I get not wanting to go out with your name being mud, but one would think he’s smart enough to know the only way to do that is to step aside gracefully. Put the organization in the hands of someone equipped to take it to the next level and focus all his efforts on the stadium deal. The fact that he hasn’t done that lends well to the narrative that he has a huge ego and probably the biggest detriment to him as an executive. Well that and desperately wanting to be what he’s never been, a football guy. Just own it and accept that dealing with personnel and building football teams isn’t what the stars aligned. Have some humility, step to the side, and maybe he could redeem himself in some capacity. Also for Dan Snyder, at some point, your life has to be about more than being a billionaire. We are nearly 20 years into his ownership and he’s still empowering and enabling a guy like Allen who has orchestrated the plan that has led to rock bottom in fan apathy, anger and attendance. So not only is he not making money at the clip he’s accustomed, he is one of the most hated men in the area, and that’s tough to do. One would think that after all this time, he’d start getting concerned about his legacy. I don’t care how much money you have, it’s got to be miserable knowing that the fans of the team you supposedly love hate your guts, when you’ve had every opportunity and reason to change it.

    I have no idea how much if any fault lays at the feet of the S&C coach for all the injuries, but it does seem wierd that this guy is off limits. A quick look shows me he was head of S&C when Jay was with the Tuskers in 2009.

    I long for the day I can rally behind the team and denounce stuff like this.
