Allen admitted to making some mistakes in FA and the draft

said we'd be ready whether it's a capped or uncapped year

Every GM makes mistakes. What Cerrato made was a whole other story.

*edit* Disasters, thats the word I'm looking for.

Good answer about Gruden...saying that we do not have an opening at that position right now and that Zorn is the coach. Well I guess that's expected for him to say...but he also said he has relationships with other coaches. I can't tell if Zorn is in the conference room.

When asked about a possibility of Gruden Allen said "Well we don't have an open position at that spot. Zorn is our coach, I just met him about 2 hours before I met you here, we'll talk with him in the next few weeks and see how that relationship develops" and that he has personal ties to hundreds of coaches

It's GM speak but people who didn't watch will obviously want to know what he said.

I like how Snyder keeps referring to Allen as a seasoned executive. He also mentioned that it'd be up to Allen to assess Zorn.

A 9-7 season which is the culmination of 5 years with more losses than wins is nothing to be proud about. 9-7 is mediocre. allen and gruden's record together was very mediocre.

I am actually impressed with Dan Snyder. How about that? To me, Snyder sounds like he has decided to step back and allow a GM to run the team.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Cerrato resigns (Bruce Allen hired as VP/GM) - merged

Is there any possibility Jim Zorn stays? With Allen, there seems to have been a track record of finding players to fit the WCO system that belonged to Gruden. Just because we now have Allen as our VPFO/GM does it necessarily mean its either Gruden or Shanahan?

I'm asking because I'm in slight favor of seeing what year 3 with Zorn-Campbell looks like before we switch HC and offensive schemes again.

If it is Shanahan that comes to town, there have been a few remarks about it being Cerrato 2.0; Allen being Snyder's puppet. This is assuming Shanahan won't have full control and that Snyder is still playing the way he wants to, and not giving autonomy to his HC-GM partnership. I can't wait for us to play spoilers these last three weeks, but am itching for answers to our team's direction.

I do hope they wait until the end of the season to name a new coach. It'd be unnecessary to do this right now. There are only three more weeks left in the season.

Yes that seems to be the case. Ladies and gents the Redskins have their first true 'GM' under Snyder.

I think you can tell there's a true element of trust that Snyder has with Allen.
