I wonder which retread, former NFL coach's son, or NFL coach's brother will replace him.


If there someone that's willing to face potential career suicide for a chance to be a head coach, it's this man.

Disagree. At least Snyder doesnt meddle in day to day operations.

re: Redskins have fired Jay Gruden
Redskins try to make a run at a decent coach but they will end up hiring Byron Leftwich or something.

He will be mediocre for a couple years just like Gruden, then the front office and organization will get to him and hell fail miserably just like every other coach of the last 20 yrs.

What? Drafting a QB nobody else in the building wants is about as meddling as an owner can get.
That being said, Jay Gruden didn’t do himself any favors.

Yes he does, and he does it worse than pretty much any other owner.

Look, Gruden might not have been Belichick, but I'm not sure Belichick could turn around an organization headed by Snyder. There's a reason why the Skins have been bad since he became owner.

He once sent Mike Nolan a 5 gallon tub of vanilla ice cream as a commentary on his defense

Nolan should have sent back 10 pounds of manure in a 5 pound sack as a comment on Snyder’s ownership.

It’s true. He was at the Matchbox right across the street from my house when he got the call.

Les Carpenter ?
@Lescarpenter

Late Sunday night Gruden was told to be at Redskins Park for a 5 a.m. meeting. Dan Snyder and Bruce Allen were already there and fired him...


Not surprised.

I'm sure this will get the fans on their side:
Bruce Allen holding Redskins press conference today, he’s not going anywhere
quote:

The move that everyone wants to see happen isn’t going to become reality anytime soon though. Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder fled FedEx Field yesterday afternoon with the quickness after the Redskins were blown out again. This was not a typical move for the drinking buddies, and it was obvious they were planning Jay Gruden’s execution. Bruce Allen will hold a press conference for the first time in 4 1/2 years at 1pm today. He’s safe, and Dan Snyder is still the worst owner in professional sports.

#FireBruceAllen

SNIDER: Bruce Allen must be fired today
quote:

Bottom line – if Allen remains, the Redskins will continue to be awful. Allen cannot be allowed to pick the next coach. He has already fired two that were his picks. Allen has also regressed in stadium talks that were supposed to be his primary goal.

Nowhere in the NFL would Allen still have a job long before reaching 59-92-1 over 10 seasons. Nobody with any options will opt to coach under him. Allen has ruined the franchise his father George Allen lifted from the ashes in the 1970s.

I haven't followed the internet chatter about how and why the videos surfaced when they did. But, if someone posted saying that they think Snyder and Allen were behind the videos coming to light now, that wouldn't surprise me a bit.

If Snyder and Allen are connected to the release of the videos, they may not have done so with the sole intention of trying to get out of paying the remainder of Gruden's contract due to a conduct or morals violation. But would they do it to smear Gruden the same week they fire him to try to deflect attention from their incompetence? Sure. I'd absolutely believe that.

Great. Now if Snyder could now get high as a kite and sell the team to Joe Gibbs we'd be all set.

Some have postulated that theory. Especially when you remember the rumors about their previous GM falling off the wagon when fired him combined with Snyder being a cheap bastard.

Also, some are saying that the videos are at least a year old. So why would they come out now . . . I mean, it's not hard to really come to that conclusion.

He’s definitely joining Chucky in Oakland.

I’d be willing to bet they make the playoffs too over the Chargers

re: Redskins have fired Jay Gruden
Bruce Allen is probably the worst GM in football but there's no reason to believe Snyder is capable of hiring anyone competent to replace him if he ever were to fire him. The Redskins have been a joke since Snyder bought the team.
