Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

Bruce Allen showed he was tough and stuck to their guns. So what?

1. He did it at the cost of losing a first-round draft pick OR MORE for the 2020 draft. Two first round draft picks -picking two elite players could transform this team.

2. BA alienated the best players the redskins had -forever. Who are people and the media going to listen to or believe: a 7-time pro bowlers, team captain and a well respected team leader OR the most despised GM in the league?

3. What does BA mis-handling of BOTH Cousins & Williams - home grown talent that got let go in the worst possible way from the players standpoint.

Bruce Allen won a very minor tactical victory over a revered and highly talented player and leader in this team. He has lost far more on the Strategic level for the Redskins. No replacement draft pick, continued perception of chaos and pettiness in the franchise, illogical decision-making and finally, Redskins players knowing that the team may stab them in the back and hurt their career if they ask for a trade.

It takes a lot to become the most hated man in D.C. but BA has done it and seems to revile in it. He needs to go before this team can move forward.

Folks that think BA is the issue are mis guided, BA is just DS mouth piece. Just like Vinny was. Until DS leaves it will be business as usual; losing.

I agree that both Bruce Allen and Vinny Cerrato (first half of Snyder’s ownership) are Daniel Snyder toadies. However, the continued free-fall of this franchise may, just may force Snyder to jettison Bruce Allen and agree to hiring a real, NFL veteran and NFL-capable GM and/or a HC.

No competitive HC from OUTSIDE the franchise is going to sign up here under the current Dan Snyder / Bruce Allen black cloud. It is impossible to win with their oversight and meddling. I mean two of the best HCs of ALL TIME (Gibbs and Shanahan) came here and had weak runs under Snyder & his lackey’s idiotic oversight.

If Snyder brings in a competitive HC from the NFL, then he most likely has agreed to greatly reduce his meddling. If he hires from INSIDE the franchise, such a O’Connell, and BA is still here, then it’s just more of the same. We’ll become like the Brown’s: great draft pick position every year, terrible record. Bruce Allen is like the Black Plague of this franchise.

Trent Williams: I will never be a Redskin again


We have no fucking leverage now in trading TW...we will be lucky now to get a 3rd round pick.

Congratulations Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder, once again you pass on trading a player for a first round pick and now will get peanuts (Cousins). But hey you won because he returned and you with held 5 million of a contract while paying welfare queens Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis to do less on the field because when they play its actually a negative because they hurt your team more than they help.

The irony is that Trent told everyone that before the season. Everyone knew he was never going to suit up again, (although i think fans had hope) except for Bruce who pretty much guaranteed Trent would be back in a Redskins uniform back in August. Delusion? Denial? Cockiness? It doesn't matter.

The team and fans have every right to expecy a player with 2 years left on his contract to be on the field come September. Showing up at the last minute, tefusing to play and then crying because you won't get paid is pure bs on TWs part. I am sorry for what he went through but this interview adds to my frustration with him not with the Skins FO.

You're right, there is every expectation that he plays but that doesn't mean it is going to happen. At some point the FO has to deal with reality.

On the bright side at least his contract doesn't advance for another year. I'm not giving up hope yet that someone might be able to salvage this mess.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

Fuck Dan Snyder, fuck Bruce Allen, fuck the medical staff, and fuck Trent Williams. Just trade him for whatever the fuck you can get.

1st day of the offseason I'm telling the other teams, we are trading Trent in exactly 2 weeks to the highest bidder. Don't care if that's a ham sandwich at this point. Just get him off of the fucking team.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

Other premiere players asked to be traded this year and ONLY THE REDSKINS played this game of chicken. Everyone else was traded. Congrats Bruce Allen you “won” this argument by forcing Trent to stay on this team. We have no draft pick to replace this hole on the OL, we lost any player confidence in the management by screwing over our best player who gave hiS heart and soul for this team. Bruce Allen showed why he is the most despised person in Washington, by the players in the NFL and by the agents.

That’s what every OTHER NFL TEAM did with their players who demanded to be traded. It’s becoming part of the NFL and teams are just going to have to deal with it. Only Bruce ALLEN would decide he’s smarter than the rest of the NFL and force Trent to stay on the team. Next year he will be worth HALF what we could have got this season!

Agreed. But at this point, even a half a ham sandwich is better than no sandwich lol.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

I think we’ll end up getting a third-rounder (at best!!) for a 7-time pro bowler LT. Bruce Allen again showed why he is the worst GM in the NFL. The Redskins EASILY could have traded TW for a FIRST ROUND draft pick that could get us an elite replacement for next season.

This team can not improve until Bruce Allen is fired! Pretty much the team should do the exact OPPOSITE of whatever ideas BA has.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

The big question now is whether Trent Williams will consider coming back with his nemesis gone and a new head coach. Adrian Peterson hinted TW might come back. He’ll want a new contract with guaranteed money!
