Yeah I agree but we've got to give the guy a chance. We don't know what went on behind closed doors or how much say he had in those picks. He also put together some good teams in Oakland so let's wait and see.

I think Vinny showed his true colors by dissing Zorn like that.

Whatever Allens' track record was or how much say he had over the draft. The Bucs did select a lot of offensive linemen in the first 3 rounds during his time there. And isn't that something we've been clamoring for?

Nnamdi Asomugha was a Bruce Allen pick for the Raiders.

I hope this is a joke. Vinny might have been a bad gm, but he def has a better drafting record than allan. He COMPLETELY blew both his top 5 picks in cadallac williams and gaines adams. He missed on michael clayton and didnt exactly hit a homerun with either davin joseph or aquib talib. Out of his 5 years as gm, he only drafted 5 starters. That is pathetic. From the years of 2004-2008 vinny drafted more starters and more people who are still on the team. And vinny sucks. Because of Allan's shitty drafting over the years the bucs are THE WORST team in the league as of right now. This seems to be a dumbass publicity stunt to please the fans with a connection to redskins roots. We just traded a bucket of spit for a bucket of poop.

edit: I take back the publicity stunt comment, i bet nobody wanted to work with snyder and this was the last option.

Unlike the man he hired and publicly dissed, Cerrato has no class.

Imagine a draft that includes several quality OL, and a quality corner/safety. It's easy if you try.

We have finally rid ourselves of The Weasel. It's a glorious day in Redskins history. I shall celebrate with a 40 later today.

Hey, like I said, I am in favor of Gruden. I'm no big Mike Shannahan fan or anything, but I just dont see where this whole Elway was the only reason he was any good idea came from. Did he win a Super Bowl with anyone else? No, he didnt. Did Holmegren win a Super Bowl without Favre? Did Walsh win one without Montana? Lombardi without Bart Starr? (We can go on and on) I mean I am just saying he's a good coach. John Elway didn't make Mike Shannahan.

And what about 2007 for Shannahan?

Ok, what about 93,94,95,96,97,98, 01,02,03,04,06 and 2009 for the Redskins? I'll take what Mike Shannahan did without John Elway over our record the last 15 years anyday.

All I'm saying is he's a good football coach. Did Elway help, absolutley. Does Shannahan win a Super Bowl without Elway, maybe not... but he still coached a Broncos team year in and year out that was in the thick of the playoff race or in the playoffs.

I want to win a Super Bowl yes, thats all I really want and waht the goal should be..but we have to have a good regular season to have the right to play in January and that guy did it consistantly. Theres no arguing that.


EDIT: I'm an idiot, I didnt see I left 2007 off, I thought that was the losing season you were reffering to... he was 7-9 that year so thats two losing seasons in 9 years... I still stand by my points, though.

I go back to the SJ article. This move is as much about rebuilding a FO with integrity. Yes there are other pieces that need to come into play, like Smoot suggested, but VC had to go mainly to get rid of the backbiting, selfish, culture that had popped up in Ashburn.
