Interesting. This is definitely indicative of an external hire. If all they were doing is promoting Schaffer and Smith, then I don't think they'd be letting Santos go, already.

I wonder if Doug is next.

Re: Confirmed: Bruce Allen has been fired

I wish they would just clean house and get rid of everyone. The people that Dan wants to keep should have to re-interview for their jobs.

Just from hearing Doug talk the few times when they've trotted him out to talk to the media (cause Bruce and Dan were too fuckin' chicken shit to do so themselves) he hasn't impressed me at all. Just the way he talked about the Foster signing, as well as saying how the draft was basically luck, just didn't come off as very bright or media savvy.

Doug shouldn't be pushed out there to take bullets from the media. That should have been Bruce.

No press conference scheduled for today but there is a 99% house cleaning going on. I'm glad it's happening!

Per Grant Paulson:

“Dan Snyder looking to bring in a GM who shares his view on Dwayne Haskins. How much of the Rivera interview will involve his thoughts on Haskins?“

What he should be worried about is getting the best guy, and not worry about getting a GM who is pro Haskins. Such a Dan Snyder move if you ask me. He's probably on the phone right now w/ Riddick.

Haskins is our QB. One thing everyone wants is for all the organization to be on the same page. So asking if the incoming GM is good with Haskins seems like an obvious first question.

More importantly he's Dan's hand picked QB.

Haskins should be the starter moving forward, but if I'm talking to Snyder for a GM job, that person is hopefully in favor of drafting a QB just about every year.

Perhaps, but technically, isn't that Doug's job. Bruce was the team president. Doug had the title most closely approximating a GM. Agree it was a dick move by Bruce to put him out there, but it just shows Doug is in over his head.

Additionally, Doug just doesn't suck at talking to the media. He also fundamentally sucks at his job. He thinks scheme doesn't matter and you should just go out and get the best players regardless of scheme and leave it to the coaches to figure it out.

Agree 100%.

If true, Snyder just wants another sycophant.

Re: Confirmed: Bruce Allen has been fired

Why would you want to get rid of an up and coming eye for talent like Kyle Smith who has proven the last 2 years that he knows what he’s doing. That would be seriously stupid.

I seriously think Grant has a poster above his bed of McVay, Cousins and Kyle.

and himself.

The GM building around Haskins should be a team goal at this point and would be for any team in the same position. And I think Ron realizes this as well given his interest in the position.

Grant is just trying to cook up drama. We should probably give a lil credit for Dan being decisive in firing Bruce and moving quickly to secure interview with top HC prospect.
