Jerry Reese is one of best young GM's out there, if they are blaming him for the Giants woes this year, then those people don't know squat. The Giants problems this year are due to major injuries, especially in the secondary and on the LB positions.

Absolutely! It is a giant step and I feel great about it.

How many times has someone here argued that we need to hire a real GM who then leads a coaching search?

Step one complete.

Danny is getting smarter.

Hey don't shoot the messenger. I read it on ESPN Insider. Even though like many things posted there it's a stretch. For example they have a link to a reporter in Detroit suggesting that the Lions would do well to trade Megatron (Calvin Johnson). Of course the title for the entry says "Megatron on the block?" which to me suggest upon reading that the Lions are considering trading Calvin, but as it turns out it's nothing more then a hypothetical scenario posed by a beat writer. ESPN Insider has a lot of decent stuff in their rumor mill but at the same time some of the stuff is on par with PFT.

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

Heard the news on Elliot in the Morning this morning and it caught me completely by suprise.

The first thing that popped into my head was an old saying that i'm about to butcher along the lines of, "once people get what they've wanted forever, sometimes they don't know what to do with it."

What I mean by that is, now that we the fans have gotten what we've wanted for so long, how will we adjust if the Bruce Allen era doesn't go any better, or perhaps even worse, than Cerrato's tenure? Will Bruce Allen get a pass even if he doesn't work any better than Cerrato did, just because he might not've done anything as remotely stupid as Cerrato might've done?

For me, here's to a long and successfull tenure of Bruce Allen/whatever coach he wants to hire. May he fare much better than his predecessor.

I didn't mean you, the NY writers or whoever posted that article. Maybe they sure hire Vinny

I know, it really is premature to suggest that Jerry Reese would be on the outs . Especially with an organization as stable as New York. I mean for goodness sake they didn't even fire Coughlin when the fan base was calling for his head. Then again we can't always hope that Cerrato charms the New York Brass.

Vinny: Listen John, Steve, remember when you won the Super Bowl with Plaxico Burress on your team? Well thats what the Giants need to get back to. Imagine this, 2 Plaxico Burresses!!!

John Mara: But Vinny we already have a good receiving core. Possibly the best up and coming one in the league.

Vinny: John John John, you can never have to many recievers. I remember when I was Executive Vice President of Football Operations, or EVPFO for short................

Gruden could end the speculation very easily. His silence speaks volumes.
Seems like Gruden hasn't removed any speculation about the chance of coming here.

Quote:
Gruden commented on Allen's hiring today in a statement released by ESPN:

"Bruce Allen is a great football mind and an even better person. His background and understanding of the Washington Redskins' tradition will be a huge asset to the Redskins. He is a leader and a great fit for this job. He's a big reason why I had any success in coaching. I'm really happy for him and I wish him the best."

Gruden and Allen also worked together in Oakland. But Gruden signed a contract extension with ESPN last month. He said at the time that he'll "probably" coach again, but he said he's enjoying his role as a Monday Night Football analyst.

"It's nice to be wanted," Gruden said of his relationship with ESPN. Gruden and Allen will get a chance to renew acquaintances soon: The Redskins host the Giants on Monday night. -- Sean Leahy

Interviewed on NFL Network, Allen said,
"The burgundy and gold are special..."
"...those darn Dallas Cowboys..."

I love the Redskin pride! The first coming of Allen had us in contention almost every year...I hope that the Second Coming of Allen does the same.
