MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The “Fire Bruce Allen” movement has been taken to a new level.

Hours before Sunday’s kickoff against the Miami Dolphins, a plane circled Hard Rock Stadium with a banner calling for the Redskins president’s job. The Redskins are 59-89-1 in Allen’s tenure and are looking for their first win of the season in Miami.

“Help Skins fans,” the banner reads, “Fire Bruce Allen.”

The Redskins already made one significant change this season, firing coach Jay Gruden on Monday. But as of now, there is no indication that owner Dan Snyder plans to move on from Allen after the season. 

Fans have long advocated for Allen’s firing, including commenting “#FireBruceAllen” on the team’s social media posts.

In January at the Senior Bowl, Allen was asked about those who wanted to see him fired.

“Why am I the right person?” Allen said. “I share their passion for this franchise. I share the passion for the things that we can accomplish. And we’re going to get this whole organization believing in it.”

Allen met with reporters after Gruden’s dismissal last week, defending the team’s culture as “damn good.”
