Latest Bruce Allen Items
Snyder, coach Mike Shanahan and quarterback Robert "SuperBob" Griffin III are the trinity of turmoil at Redskins Park, all seemingly staking out their corner in this political battle royal. But don't overlook GM Bruce Allen's role.
Asked directly whether the Washington Redskins should change their name, Roger Goodell said the NFL needs to "make sure we're doing what's right."
There is so much smoke surrounding the Shanahan-RG3 relationship that I'm surprised the sprinkler systems don't go off daily at Redskins Park. And here's the fire — the reason that Shanahan, in the fourth year of his five-year contract — needs an extension now: the presence of owner Daniel Snyder.
Winning in the NFL is elusive. The league is structured to foster competitive balance and parity. In the NFL, what goes up eventually comes down. The ultimate goal, then, is staying power — maximizing potential, sustaining a high standard and keeping the window to success open for as long as possible.
Robert Griffin III will start the Washington Redskins' season-opener on Sept. 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles, coach Mike Shanahan said on Monday afternoon. Thus ends a months-long drama about whether the 23-year-old quarterback would be ready for Week 1 after undergoing right knee surgery on Jan. 9 to repair torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments.
So much for those last-minute "concerns." RG3 is starting Week 1.
Once again, Robert Griffin III was all dressed up with nowhere to play.
Bruce Allen knows well the history of Washington Redskins quarterback controversies. Sonny Jurgensen vs. Billy Kilmer in the `70s. Doug Williams vs. Jay Schroeder in the `80s. Heath Shuler vs. Gus Frerotte in `90s.
His nickname belied his calling. David "Deacon" Jones was the most feared member of the Fearsome Foursome, the original sackmaster.
