Guys he's just one person, he'll have say in who else comes in. I'd live to see Brown stay and have us bring DeCosta back; I could also see is going after Doug Williams if Allen wants to work with him again, I'd rather have DeCosta if they're looking at them for the same position, which I imagine would be head of personnel or at least pro personnel.

The man has 5 division championships this decade. I'm more than willing to give this guy the opportunity to see what he does. I hope he does well.

Well...the two biggest problems Marty had with the Redskins (Drasner and Cerrato) are now gone

hahaha.. allen just mentioned respecting the Redskins talent over the years as an opponent, mentioned that some of those TDs might not have stood if the replay was the same as it is now

also mentioned liking the young talent, named orakpo

Just got the news



*tear* I can't believe this has finally happened. Today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. Ladies and gentleman, the messiah is finally upon us. Let us give thanks.

Certainly you can argue that there are better choices than Allen out there, bu for the five plus years I've been part of this board the two most common sentences I've seen written here are "We need a GM" and "We need to get rid of Vinny"

Well in one morning, we did both....and we still complain

Allen wants "good teammates, somebody that we can count on"

Snyder "he is a seasoned executive.. very appropriate for the title"

starting today Allen "feels the pain of 4-9" will be talking to the current staff to find out what caused that, etc

Nothing's ever good enough. If we hired Belichick or Tomlin there would be complaints too. Some of these people want a coach that won 5 superbowls in 3 years it seems, but it would've been better if he won 6.

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.
