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.

Redskins need major changes to start winning again

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Why just lose when you can lose with gusto? Of the Washington Redskins' 12 losses this year, nine were by double digits. Only one other team in franchise history has lost so decisively so often. The dreadful 1961 Redskins also dropped nine by double digits in a 1-12-1 season. It wasn't until a decade later - 1971 - that the Redskins returned to the playoffs. Unless...

Whatever the Redskins decide to do next, it will probably be wrong

Whatever comes tomorrow for the Redskins, Hog Heaven is certain of one thing. It will be yet another short cut to placate the mob (us fans) with a famous name. Perhaps will be Wade Phillips to replace Jim Haslett as the defensive coordinator because the touts are adamant that Rex Ryan would rather be on TV than an assistant in Redskins Park.   Maybe A. J.
