Bruce Allen’s draft board problem: So many Redskins weaknesses, so few picks

The Washington Redskins have a talented roster, with ample depth at this point in the offseason. With a series of cuts to come, no one is safe and could easily end up under the axe by September. Clearly, there are some doughnut holes that need filling. With no first-round draft pick, our Redskins will cross their fingers and hope to get lucky. I’m no scout— but here is a list...

Redskins' Defense Still Needs More Juice To Make Playoffs

When former Head Coach Mike Shanahan was fired a few weeks ago, General Manager Bruce Allen declared that, going forward, player personnel decisions would rest with him. During this year's free agent frenzy, we have witnessed the validity of that statement. The "cuffs" appear to be off and GM Bruce Allen has been "wheeling and dealing" like a Wall Street banker...

No Splash Zone

Bruce Allen, executive vice president and general manager of the Washington Redskins, sat around the edge of the NFL free agent pool, toes in the water, not quite ready to get wet. While other general managers and teams jumped off of the diving boards and slipped down the water slides, Allen waited for the perfect time to make his presence known and then, it happened.

Washington Redskins, Bruce Allen disturb fans with their free agency moves

For the most part the Redskins have acted as mere observers during the free-agency frenzy of the last two days, signing one player that you may have heard of in Andre Roberts, and a few others that don’t exactly ring a bell.

Bruce Allen spends wisely on day 1 of free agency (a Washington Redskins first)

Day one of the NFL Free Agency period came and gone and the Washington Redskins are a better team than they ended the regular season. Coming off a 3-13 campaign which resulted in an overhaul with a new coaching staff, offensive philosophy and a franchise that had hit rock bottom, the Redskins looked to start the rebuilding process for a team with holes in every phase of the game...

Business as Usual for Redskins GM Bruce Allen should make Redskins fans a little nervous

Redskins GM Bruce Allen, the 2002 NFL Executive of the Year, ascended to his post with the Redskins in the wake of chaos. That's not entirely true.  Allen was hired as the team's GM in December of 2009.  He was not granted control of the personnel department, and because of this, Allen stayed very much behind the scenese during the four year run by Mike Shanahan as...
