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

I am glad VC is gone. With that said, I thought he did have some solid personnel moves. His real problem was that he was all about Vinny - cross him and he just got petty. His presser ignoring Zorn (actually, thumbing his nose at Zorn by mentioning Blache and Lewis but nary a word on JZ) is just the latest example. Ultimately, this just breeds spite and infighting as employees/players jockey for position or worry more about covering their ass then the bottom line - winning.

Allen, hopefully, will get the team aspect - he certainly seems to based on his statements and past performance. If the attitude can change, the FO focuses on a long term plan, and the players buy into it, Allen can be a very good GM for us for a very long time.

So this should end the debate of whether or not he is really GM
There's no debate. Did you see the presser when Snyder introduced Allen? He also addressed that head on when asked about Allen's title.

I have never said this in my life but for one day can we get off Dan Snyders back?
I think the haters are in the extreme minority for the most part.

Yeah, no maroon and black comments from the Second Coming of Allen.

I have always wondered where I could get a maroon and yellow tie.

This means that if Shanahan does come here, he will focus on coaching, and that makes me happy.

Of course, this also might mean that Shanahan will go to Dallas because he will have full control, including personnel. That also would make me happy.

Word has it that Jerry Reese might be in trouble. I see a Cerrato-Zorn hiring in your future

True...I guess there's always a few that will never be happy. Today is a day to celebrate...even if Allen was not your first choice the fact still remains that Snyder ousted Vinny and hired a GM. Some of us thought we would never see this day...
