The McNabb trade: 10 years later

Part of the draft failure for the Redskins over the last 20 years is that we’ve had TERRIBLE GM’s in that time. Neither Cerrato nor Allen had much football sense, nor did they have ANY NFL personnel expertise. Any players they drafted and that’s succeeded were due to blind luck. I remember some drafts where fourth, fifth and below draft picks never even made it through TC.

Cerrato & Allen were there to hold Snyder’s hand and to allow Dan to stick his grubby little fingers into the football operation, of which HE ALSO has very limited NFL knowledge.

I was a little surprised that Kyle Smith was able to rise up, regarding his advice in choosing draft picks, because Allen’s usual tactic was to crush anyone who appeared smarter than him or had any success regarding football decisions for the team. I guess Allen finally figured out that he needed to start making some correct draft and FA decisions, since it wasn’t just good enough to “win off the field”.

I hope that Rivera promotes Kyle Smith to GM because he does an outstanding ability to find gems in the bottom of the draft and undrafted free agents (UDFA). I’m excited to see who he picks up this draft, since we have some real holes to fill after we draft Chase Young.
