Just because I want Zorn to stay doesn't mean that I am naive enough to believe that he is going to stay.

Oh you mean the 3 divisional titles titles which is more than the 2 mentioned? The SB appearance in 2002? The hell of a performance against NE decided upon by calling Brady's fumble a non-fumble?

A "real GM" would be what we - the fans - have been screaming for for years - a guy who would run the football operation and not just be Snyder's yes man. Don't beleive the BS from the press conference. Snyder and/or our new HC will be pulling all the strings. Allen is just a figurehead with connections to the team that Snyder's using to pacify the fanbase.
Well until we know who our coach and other FO positions we're looking at you can't really say that it will be an issue. Perhaps he'll be a "yes man" to a guy that's a hell of a personnel director? Didn't we have a problem with our scouts and personnel people being overridden by Snyderrato?

Yep.. and who's to even say that we could've landed our top pick? The guy after that, maybe even the next, etc?

I think Spence gave up posting here. I don't think he was big on us being critical of him... being critical.

Skinny is probably playing Modern Warfare, lol. He's logged an insane amount of time in that game. I wonder if he works.

Well I know that many have forecasted Gruden as coming here but with the whole ESPN deal it's so far only cloudy with only a chance of participation in DC.

If this is Allen's ship to run, he needs to bring in his guys.
Yeah I can't see him finding enough good in Zorn from a combine talk and a few weeks of the season to make him more comfortable with the Z-Man than other guys that he's known for years.

I don't care what anyone says about Allen's record as a GM it comes down to this. Vinny was a douche. Forget the OLine, bad draft pick and bad trades. He was a donkey-ass douchebag that no one but Dan Snyder liked. He was universally disliked because he was a weasel(thank you saden). That couldn't be good for our org. It just couldn't. Even if Allen is the equivalent of Vinny talent wise at least he'll be respected. That alone is an upgrade.

Skinny Tee is doing the medical report on Cerrato's ego and projecting how long he'll be out. :p
