Positive vibes about the Redskins are always welcome, especially after being ridiculed (and rightfully so) for such a long time. It creates a much different perception when you employ people who know and understand the game of football.

I agree. I think we need to be optimistic, but just because Vinny is gone and Allen is GM doesn't mean squat. Too many questions need to be answered all around to get overly excited. What has Shanny won post Elway? Even post Elway, he had more solid weapons in Denver to work with, including a rather green Portis, than he has here. I think it is still a 50/50 proposition that these guys build something. As for the so called change in direction? Our draft was rather lackluster to say the least minus the McNabb acquisition. This team is still heavily relying on free agency, although we will never see ridiculous sums being paid to future free agents again thank goodness. The only change I see thus far is exactly that, no more huge ass contracts. It is nice we got McNabb, but really do you think he is going to win a SB? Before we got him, many in here were calling him McChoke, etc. Don't get me wrong I like Donovan alot and I didn't think he was McChoke in Philly, but our WR corp minus Santana is very suspect. Donovan might be able to get them to improve their game, but they also can bring Donovan down also if they don't step it up.

Re: Shanahan and Allen form dream front office in D.C.

I will say this though, for the first time in like 5-6 years we are not predicted to be the cellar dwellers in the NFC East in a majority of the preseason rags out now. 8-8 seems to be the consensus prediction. THere is reason for optimism. I won't drink the Kool Aid just yet though. Spurrier cured me of that!!!!!

The culture within Redskin Park at the administrative level is more structured than it had been the past couple of years, hopefully that translates to on-field success

I'm just loving the Cowboys fan leaving hate comments

I'd say Gibbs II was the same dysfunctional FO as always. Gibbs is a coach -- not an FO guy. Vinny was still running the show back then, IMO.

One would think the trickle down effect will be a positive one. Leadership starts at the top.
