If Vinny Were Here


I had a funny daydream about the NFL Draft that I wanted to share… I call it… “If Vinny Were Here.”

I found myself bemused by people still worried about the draft and the Redskins getting Griffin, and what on earth could possibly go wrong? So of course I thought of My Cousin Vinny. Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins 2010 Offseason


Here we go with another edition of “How to Spend Dan Snyder’s Money!” Also affectionately referred to as “Who Wants to be a Gazillionare!”

Fans are understandably nervous about the possibility of a lockout in 2011, but in the mean-time, it’s looking like 2010 will go uncapped. The rumors of what the Redskins would do in an uncapped year began the moment someone realized this was an actual possibility.

It’s Okay to Be Skeptical


So, the Redskins have turned a few heads in these past two months. Cerrato and Zorn are out; Allen and Shanahan are in. Dan Snyder seems committed to showing the fans that he has done away with his meddlesome nature (which this blogger believes ended with the re-hiring of Joe Gibbs) and is going to leave the football decisions to his newly hired staff.

Jim Zorn; The End of an Error


I never really had anything against Jim Zorn. His resume included the fact that he was both a college and NFL Quarterback. He worked under Mike Holmgren. The NFL should have been in his blood.

Cerrato Out, Allen In


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 »

Vinny Is Outta Here


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!!!

Dan Snyder and the XMB-5000


The office was large and plush. The 15-foot ceilings and large windows made even the largest of defensive linemen feel small. To one side was an equally large fire-place and in the middle or the room, with the windows behind it, was the desk of one Daniel M. Snyder.

Rain pattered against the glass of the enormous windows, and gave the night an even more ominous feel. The only light in the office was coming from the crackling fire in the aforementioned fireplace. Read the rest of this entry »
