I don't expect everyone to agree with Allen's hiring. But come on, Vinny was terrible in certain aspects and Allen has had success as a general manager. At least let the guy come in and start working before you start pissing all over him.
I'm not pissing on him. I think Snyder did the right thing and this is a good move. But I'm just going to take a wait and see attitude.

I don't think anyone is saying championship, but things have got to be better.

Yeah, let us go ahead and give this guy a chance and not assume draft fail right off the bat. As long as he can Danny Boy from playing fantasy football we should be good. I actually expect with this hiring that the head coach will have more to do with guys we bring in. Lets give him a chance.

The new head coach will have his say in personnel as well, so Allen is just one piece of the puzzle. (I stole that from SS, I think)

At least now we might be able to get back to the tracks (since we have been so far off of it for a long time). Great move skins! On board 110%!

Dan Patrick said that the Rooney Rule applies to front office/executive positions just as it does to head coaching positions.

Any truth to this? Were there any other interviews that have been made known?

Offensive linemen in every draft. I'll take it.

Also, take note HOW MANY picks they had. Completely opposite as our usual 5 total picks with Vinny.

Is that the racial rule?


Next thing you know, we'll be flagged for not interviewing a black, Native American or Hispanic candidate and accused of tampering again.

Time will tell.
Good point. SS said he was more involved with the business end. Maybe he listens to the scouting department and coaches come draft time.

Interesting article, and probably one of the first by SJ that I didn't have issues with:

Sally Jenkins - Bruce Allen's first task with Redskins: Repair the fissures of Vinny Cerrato's making - washingtonpost.com

Snyder reportedly interviewed two minority candidates for the position.

Just when I thought Vinny would somehow hang onto his job, which I dreaded, I get this news and I couldn't be happier. This is surely an early Christmas present.

I hate the Rooney rule. I'm not racist at all but i believe a team should have the right to interview and hire whoever they want.

How do you think those african american candidates feel? knowing that they are getting their interview just so a team can get around the rule....they dont think about that...
