If Gruden wasn't allowed to create his own hierarchy with his own hand picked assistants he was doomed from the start.
It has never been reported by a "journalist" that the Callahan hire was an arranged marriage with Jay.

But, Finlay, Sheehan, and Phillips from the Richmond times dispatch have talked about it on podcasts since Callahan's hire.

And it's a total Bruce move. Dallas has a good run game, let's hire yet another Dallas Cowboy, whether he fits here or not.

I don't think Jay is a good coach. But I think he would have had way more success than he has had here, with another competent organization.

He isn't head coaching material at the NFL level. For one thing he is way too soft, his team lacks discipline on and off the field.

Re: Why moving on from Bruce Allen this year is pivotal to the future of the franchise.

You guys are in Fantasy Land if you think Bruce Allen is going anywhere. I think Bruce must be perfect for what Snyder wants or he would already be gone.

Some business owners thrive on sitting above the fray and enjoying watching their underlings fight it out. If you're untouchable, constant turmoil, political infighting, back-stabbing, lies, and betrayals can make for an amusing show. I suspect that Snyder get off on that stuff - not to mention all the flattery and boot-licking that gos along with it. And who is better at all that nonsense than Allen? Naw, he stays.

Bruce Allen is like the gladiator who kills so many opponents that he is eventually awarded his freedom by the emperor.

Also, no matter if the team wins or not or is well-managed or not the Franchise is still worth billions to Snyder if he decides to sell it to another social climber who is looking to join the business elite of NFL owners. He can't screw it up! He's golden, so why should he care about your silly-ass problems?

Yeah, I donít know...I think Bruce firing is def on the table. I think itís not really the performance of team, but the decline in the dc market and apathy he sees in the fans...I think this is most concerning thing to Dan.

And this is what Vinny did too which is why even changing BA isn't much of a chance to see success. The person hiring the next Bruce or Vinny will still look for the same criteria.

Thatís a Vinny move. Smith has provided some solid players the last 2 years heís been in charge. It would be very stupid to get rid off the solid bright spot of this team.

Back to Matty's comment though, doesnt it seem like the last two to three years have also had more player drama? I mean not too lomg ago, with BA in charge, we regularly re-signed our players, so aomething has changed and maybe it is something with Kyle, but thats just huge speculation.

Kyle is in charge of getting the talent, the drama comes from BA and Danny.

Nobody really knows who does what in this clown show and that's 100% intentional.

Agreed!

Typical Skins in a Snyder-Bruce Allen era.

Snyder isnít going anywhere but could it be time for Allen to be fired? Itís the perfect time for Bruce to go as we are actually in a good position to reset the franchise.

1. The coaching staff is about to be turned over, A new GM will get to influence immediately the direction of field strategy and scheme. A young Offensive mind, a young Defensive mind, a college level coach, an experienced coordinator, a previous coach retread...this is the most important decision coming this offseason. Gruden was a Tampa-safe pick Bruce special which failed.

2. We have young talent at WR, QB, D-line, LB, and other pockets all over the field. Experienced kickers on special teams. The teamís talent isnít bad and the depth is decent.

3. We are about to turnover aging vets and a swell of cap space is coming available next year. VD, CT, Colt, Case...contracts are up. Kerrigan has no guaranteed money after this year on his contract. Reed, AP, Norman, TW and Moses all contracts have limited guaranteed contracts and are all in play to cut and move on from. Even with Alex Smith cap hit, we could have some of the biggest cap space in the league if cuts happen....And they def should.

4. A new voice is needed for the fans. Goes without saying...ratings, attendance all time lows for the Org. We donít want old Skins walking around, talking about the glory years...fuck that noise. We need a plan for the future and we need to move away from the past. A new GM could deliver a vision...or even develop a culture.

5. We need a GM who players can trust. If we donít trade TW and he sits or reluctantly returns...We need a GM who can fix this issue fairly quick. I could see a situation where a new GM comes in, smooths over and extends the best Tackle in the game. It wouldnít be the worst thing. Also, extending Scherff should be a top priority. But a new GM who can build stronger relationships with our players could change culture.

I think things could change quickly if a new GM comes in and Bruce is fired. Itís our most important decision Snyder makes this year and he needs to do it now.

Peterson needs to play more. Definitely much more. Bridgewater had the connection with him.
