Bruce Allen says no decisions have been made about G.M. role

AP

Amid plenty of speculation and reporting that Washington will be moving forward without a General Manager, team president Bruce Allen says that any such talk is premature.

“No, there has been no decisions made,” Allen told ESPN 980 (a station owned by Washington owner Daniel Snyder) on Friday. “The process, we are going to take our time. We want to get it right what we do. . . . There is no submission to the league on a form or anything like that. We are going to keep talking and decide what is the best thing for the Redskins.”

The approach hasn’t shifted much if at all since Washington fired former G.M. Scot McCloughan.

“As far as what we are going to do, it hasn’t changed since March,” Allen said. “We are going to be in the process of looking to see what we need to add to our personnel department to enhance the people that are here. There is some good quality people out there that’s available that we are talking to. We are going to put together the right team with the Redskins that is going to help us win.”

Allen’s comments contradict a report that the team has submitted a plan to reorganize the front office without replacing the G.M. job.

  1. They don’t need anybody with the G.M. title. Bruce Allen is the President, or whatever his title is. Well he’s not just a business guy. His dad is George Allen, a long time football guru. Bruce grew up knowing football. They have Director of College Scouting Scott Campbell. Either one of those guys could be a GM. Most teams have a GM, but every GM doesn’t do the same thing. Howie Roseman is a lawyer GM. Scot McCloughan was a scout GM. Roseman still had to find someone to do the scouting, and McCloughan had to find someone to do the business office stuff. The Redskins could name Doug Williams the GM tomorrow, and nothing inside the building would change. It’s not like there’s a big empty office in the building. The Redskins have some concerns, but this is not one of them.

    Tone, you are giving us Seahawk fans a bad rap….posting drivel like this. Just because Bruce grew up in a football family, doesn’t absolve him of being a complete moron in his adult life of working for Snyder. His track record speaks for itself, try to do a little research next time before lumping him in with his dad.

  3. Let Cousins walk and tear down everything.
    Start Fresh.
    4-12 here we come, just like always.

  4. Note to anyone that cares. Mr. Allen… Most Redskin’s fans have not been very optimistic about Dan Snyder and his ownership from the beginning. After he hired you as GM, I wanted to give you a chance to see if your football heritage would add something to this organization. Unfortunately it has not impressed me or most fans . Tony Dungy built the Tamp Bay Bucs championship … not you or John Gruden (My humble opinion ONLY). After the off season firing of Scot McCloughan I have lost all respect for the front office. To trash a man’s career is unconscionable. Especially after you knew he had an issue prior to his hiring. Would love to see Snyder sell this team.

  5. Bruce Allen became Bucs GM a year after they won the Super Bowl, and was a part of driving them back into irrelevance. Once they fired Dungy, in the time he was there, the Bucs drafted only one player who ever made a Pro Bowl with the Bucs (OG Davin Joseph.)

  6. Agree w allot of these comments and not even a Redskins fan. However this guy is a huge egomaniac and allot of dysfunction leeches out from his ego and control issues. I to believe he wants gig for himself. Live in Tampa area and he did make a mess of Bucs roster when he was here. Washington deserves way better than this clown. Too bad they prob won’t get it. I’m sorry Washington fans!

  7. Snyder chose Allen over McCloughan, but it’s clear they needed a talent scout not a PR guy….. I just don’t get it

    Why do they need another one? They already have two in Dan Snyder and Bruce Allen, in that order.


    The fans want somebody who knows what he’s doing, at least when it comes to evaluating talent.

  9. Can’t even keep the lies straight.

    Shame that the fans in Washington and Buffalo (Russ Brandon) have to deal with people like this.

  10. GM or no GM….The Redskins had an awesome draft and thats something you cant deny but you wont see it as long as you are looking at this team with hater vision!!!!!!

    When they beat whoever is your favorite team is you will be picking up your bottom jaw!!!!!
