As with Vinny Cerrato, you just wonder how badly the team has to perform year-after-year, how badly the fans have to suffer over the last two decades before they get rid of this ass-clown, Allen, and make a change to a REAL FOOTBALL General Manager. Someone with some real NFL credibility.
I'm 45 minutes from philly, and they are not loyal. You have goldfish syndrome right now. When a philly team is losing, the sky is falling and dysfunction in the media reigns supreme. They have a recent superbowl, so you arent remembering every other year when the radio stations are calling to have the team blown up. Shit man, even last year it was all about getting rid of Wentz in favor of a backup. Listen to philly talk about the flyers or the Phillies until they signed harper. And 3 short years ago the media would talk about how disappointed they were in the Sixers. Philly's fans and media (and I'm a Phil's and flyers fan) are some of the most dysfunctional in the country. They werent a good reference point......

Re: Is the End Near For Bruce Allen?

This whole thing is stupid. Does Russell not remember that Brian Lafemina was fired by Snyder at the end of the season when attendance tanked? You would expect a lot of turnover in the business office when the lead business office executive is let go.

Thereís a lot you can point to with regards to failings of Bruce Allen but this doesnít make any sense.

Re: Is the End Near For Bruce Allen?

Bruce Allen's record ON THE FIELD doesn't justify his being kept on in his position. He's aways managing players as if the Redkskins are just one player from becoming elite. I think he's happy if the team goes 8-8 because he's convinced Snyder that if we're playing .500 football we're really close to turning the corner. Allen thinks that he can't be fired for an 8-8 season. Under his "leadership", the Redskins have been mediocre-average. The team needs to get a REAL General Manager and rebuild to get to the next level. Allen will accept average if it just gives him another year.

Bruce isn't going anywhere until Bruce is ready to go. As fans, we have to live with it. Bruce is here as long as he wants.

Re: Is the End Near For Bruce Allen?

I would agree Allen isn't going anywhere. Dan needs someone to be buddies with. He needs someone who he can hide behind and Allen's the perfect guy. The rails would have to completely fall of for Dan to fire him.

Re: Is the End Near For Bruce Allen?

Allen plays it safe, which is why the team drifts around the 6-7 win range. Keeping the team just good enough not to get fired, but never good enough to really have a very good season.

Allen will retire once the new stadium gets announced. Until then, settle in. Right now his stock is low, however when the new stadium deal is done he will call that his lasting contribution and in 4 years we'll be saying "Bruce Allen doesn't know shit about football but he sure can build a hell of a stadium!"

Re: Is the End Near For Bruce Allen?

CBS news is now reporting that the relationship between Bruce Allen and Trent Williams is "fractured". hmmm. Does that sound like the Cousins fiasco again? Last year USA Today did a poll of player reps and Bruce Allen was considered the WORST in the NFL to deal with.

Haha I saw that earlier. The moat idea is dumb AF but you know Snyder loves flashy shit so the new stadium will definitely be creative in some way.

I'd rather see a stadium built to maximize the noise level. Fed Ex is the worst for sound, among all its other problems.

You give the guy too much credit for having a plan. Lol. He is in the league for one reason....his father. He is an absolute moron. The end.

Agreed! His name is what got him the job and he's being kept around to get Snyder a stadium. Snyder hasn't figured out that if the Redskins had a good team that might help them get a stadium.

Re: Is the End Near For Bruce Allen?

Bruce Allen keeps his job, regardless of the teamís record, because he is Dan Snyderís toadie. He says and does the things that Snyder dictates, so that Snyder has deniability. He takes the press punches and fanís ire instead of Snyder receiving them. The Redskins first had Cerrato to be Snyderís boot licker and the fanís punching bag, now Bruce Allen has the job.

And what did his father do? Mortgage the future by trading draft picks for old guys, it wasnít until Bobby Beathard righted the ship.
