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 know!?

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...

Next thing you know, we'll be flagged for not interviewing a black, Native American or Hispanic candidate and accused of tampering again.
Somewhere in Alaska a gay transvestite Eskimo is pissed.

I think the purpose was to get those candidates some exposure and not necessarily hire them. But please let us not turn this thread into a Rooney rule thread.

well, hopefully we'll keep hold of scott campbell and morocco brown. one thing you have to give allen's bucs - they never ignored the o-line. and the one they have now is young and talented thanks to him. i'm sure we all wish we could say that about ours.

Yeah it's sad that we have to have things like the Rooney rule. However, prior to that rule almost no minority coaches were being interviewed.

Great move Danny!!! Brings back an old traditional Allen in Washington... If we do bring gruden in does this mean JC is gone ?

Anyone who is not optimistic about anyone else being an upgrade over Vinny is insane. Allen has taken two struggling franchises to Super Bowls. Vinny has taken a proud, winning team into the dumpster.

I agree...let him do his thing and repair this team too. I bet his draft will focus on the offensive line, something that Vinny failed to do year after year. If Vinny stayed, we'd probably be downgrading QB by drafting one and loading the roster up with 8 RBs while ignoring the line again in the upcoming draft.

Why would you assume that? Gruden praised Campbell for a lot when doing the commentary for our game. He pointed out a few things he could suggest to Campbell for improvement while saying basically "I could take this guy to the next level, he has the talent". This of course, was BEFORE Jason's game took off in the last 6 weeks. JC earned his future with the team I think.

I mean I think in terms of the players that we actually take, we take pretty good players with the picks we have, we just at times dont focus on the right positions. Would he have had alot of input in what positions we have gone over the last few years?
Think of Campbell as sort of an offensive coordinator during the week. During the off-season, Campbell leads all the scouting efforts of college players, decides who will be interviewed at the combine (I think each team is limited to 50 players), what pro days to attend, ranking the different players under each position. Then on game day Cerrato, Zorn, and Snyder take over based largely on that info that Campbell leads the preparation of...now it's Allen instead of Cerrato of course.

I don't think anyone is pissing on him. There is nothing wrong with looking at his past record so we know what we are getting. Some of us know very little about the guy, so looking at his past is the first step in learning about him. If some are making opinions about Allen's past or voicing their own opinions about his being hired here, that is not a bad thing.
