The Washington Redskins hit a home run with Scot McCloughan

Earlier this week, I wrote that Bruce Allen needed to get his priorities straight and hand over his general manager position to someone more capable. Today, Redskins Nation should be more than happy with Allen’s decision. Yesterday, the Redskins hired Scot McCloughan as the team’s new general manager, while Allen will maintain his position as team president. Here’s what you...

Washington Redskins big shake up; Bruce Allen promoted, Scott McCloughan in

A week after a disastrous press conference from then Washington Redskins GM Bruce Allen, the team is making a change. It will be a 4-year deal for Scot McCloughan and the #Redskins, I’m told. Goes without saying, it’s a huge hire from a personnel standpoint. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 6, 2015 So Allen’s out then, right? Not so fast. Scot McCloughan & the...

Redskins reach out to Scot McCloughan for front office position

Bruce Allen needs to get his priorities straight

Wins have been hard to come by in Washington and so have answers. Bruce Allen, the man behind the Redskins’ nightmarish mask, has remained in the dark all season. He’s barely said two words, making an explanation for his less-than-desirable results hard to come by. This week, after avoiding the hard questions for months, Allen finally gave the media their chance, and they came...

Redskins GM Bruce Allen: Team Is ‘Winning Off The Field’ (Video)

Bruce Allen might not know what “winning” means. The Washington Redskins president and general manager held his season-ending press conference on Wednesday, and delivered one of the best/worst quotes of the year — just in time, too. After finishing a disappointing 4-12 on the year, Allen had some odd optimism about the future of the team. “We’re winning off the field,...

Redskins GM: Team is winning off the field

Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen has retained his job after a disastrous four-win 2014 campaign. He owes owner Daniel Snyder some gratitude for that. Though, if you were to ask Allen, he’d tell you that the Redskins have shown improvement recently.  We’re winning off the field, but we’ve got to start winning on the field. I am pretty sure that comment...

Bruce Allen faced a howling mob and gave Redskins fans nothing to believe in

Redskins’ president and GM Bruce Allen was in a tough spot today. DC sportswriters gave a convincing performance of the mob storming Frankenstein’s castle. They demanded blood. They demanded answers Allen could not give. Allen said he was evaluating everything the team does as part of the turn-around. It is bad business to preannounce personnel moves to the press before informing...

Bruce Allen’s press conference was a disturbing mess

In a press conference this morning at Redskins Park that lasted about 46 minutes, Washington general manager Bruce Allen sparred with reporters, trying to keep his voice light and his manner calm and repeatedly dodging the tough questions aimed at him by a media corps skeptical of the team’s ability to improve and frustrated by the lack of access to team officials. The performance...

5 questions for Redskins Pres. & GM Bruce Allen

“You know how this works. You ask the questions and I don’t answer them.” ~ Mike Shanahan at his first press conference as Redskins head coach. Bruce Allen’s press conference Wednesday morning is news in itself. Neither he nor team owner Daniel Snyder are accessible to us, especially when the team is in its annual swoon. Jerry Jones never hides. Just sayin’. Expect the...

Five offseason moves the Washington Redskins must make

When the season began the Washington Redskins were a niche pick not only to win the NFC East, but make a deep run into the playoffs. However that notion was ended early in the season after the Redskins started 3-5, and allegations of internal turmoil made national headlines. In the off-season the Redskins fired coach Mike Shanahan after four years and 24-40 record. The Redskins look...
