This weekend, Andre was nice enough to take the time to answer questions about his new position change, what he expects from new defensive coordinator Jim Haslett’s defense, as well as who he wants to win Super Bowl XLIV and if he has collaborated in helping prank rookie Pro Bowler Brian Orakpo this week along with much more. He also gives us an update on how he is feeling just coming off of bicep surgery and where he will be watching Super Bowl XLIV from.

As is typically the case, the Redskins are off to a fast start in the offseason championships. Heck, the regular season wasn’t even officially over, and we already had a 4 game lead over the competition after the hiring of Bruce Allen. Read the rest of this entry »

All I can say is wow. Cerrato. Gone. Poof. I sure didn’t see it coming. Of course, in hind sight… there have been a number of Daniel Snyder – Bruce Allen sightings… and I think that there have been a couple of quickly dismissed rumors… We all wished… but no one expected… for Cerrato to leave the scene.
So, there is delirium… rumors continue to swirl… it seems that most money is on Mike Shanahan to become the next HC… but, who would expect that to be announced before the end of the season? Read the rest of this entry »
In what most Redskin fans would classify as an early Christmas present, Vinny Cerrato resigned as the Washington Redskins executive vice president of football operations on Thursday. It is the end of an era – an unsuccessful, often painful era. Read the rest of this entry »
What is going on with the Washington Redskins? Sure it’s a 4-9 team but over the past month most Redskins fans have stopped walking around with their heads down. Over the last four weeks the Redskins have only posted one victory, that being over the lowly Oakland Raiders. Yet Redskins fans are extremly happy with what has been going on at Redskins Park and the improvements on the field. Read the rest of this entry »
I was reading a friend’s blog the other day, as she wrote about great gifts to get for a guy, and I thought, “I wonder if you can ask Santa for a new Washington Redskins GM for Christmas.” I sat down with pen and paper and wrote my list for the big guy the very next day. Well, for those non-believers out there, there absolutely is a Santa Claus.
Vinny Cerrato has resigned (no, not re-signed… he quit) today as The Washington Redskins President of Football Operations. Already signed to replace him is Bruce Allen, former Tampa Bay General Manager and son of legendary coach George Allen. Let the speculation begin.
What does this mean for the future of embattled quarterback Jason Campbell, or the current coaching staff? That remains to be seen. All eyes will certainly be trained on Redskins Park to see what comes out of the new football guy.
In addition, Bruce Allen was the GM that brought Jon Gruden to Tampa. This is the same Gruden that the rumor mills listed as the front runner to take over if Jim Zorn was fired, and oh by the way, Gruden will be in town Monday for the game between the Redskins and Giants. Do I want to see Gruden become the new head coach for the ‘Skins? Not really, but that’s a story for another blog. Is the irony of the timing lost on me? Absolutely not.
Regardless of whom the next coach is (and it could be the same as the current coach), a new guy will be making the decision. A change has been needed at the top of this organization since Marty Shottenheimer left town. Granted, as we’ve noted often in these Hog Blogs, the change only matters if Bruce Allen is given all the keys to the car and not just that funky looking one that you are supposed to give to valet parking attendants so they can’t get into the trunk.
In other words, you’ve taken a step in the right direction by bringing in a football person to make the decisions prior to making the decisions for him Mr. Snyder. Now — and with all due respect — BACK OFF!!!
