Bruce Allen: Hire RUSS GRIMM as next REDSKINS head coach


Bill Cowher retired and Russ Grimm became a leading candidate for the head coach vacancy of the Steelers in 2007. Surprisingly, Mike Tomlin got the Steelers job and Grimm headed to Arizona as offensive coordinator. Ironically, Russ Grimm and Tomlin would meet in the Super Bowl the following season. The Steelers won, but it was Arizona's insane offense that got all the attention.

Russ Grimm has led great offenses in Pittsburgh, but the one he's running in Arizona is one of the best in the league...well ahead of the Redskins in every offensive category. Imagine Greg Blache's sound defense paired with an offense as explosive as the one Russ Grimm is running in Arizona.

The Redskins had Russ Grimm working as an assistant from 1992 - 2000. It's not surprising that Grimm hit the road when Snyder and Cerrato started their reign of destruction.

A head coach in the making was already working at Redskins Park...but why would Snyder take a chance on Grimm when Schottenheimer, Spurrier, and Gibbs 2.0 are available? We'll never know how that would have played out, but it's not too late to make amends. The first step was firing Vinny Cerrato, the next step is bring Russ Grimm back to the Redskins as the head coach.

C'mon man.

REDSKINS: "We are who we thought we are"

Yep, as the great Dennis Green once said (sort of)...WE ARE WHAT WE THOUGHT WE ARE.

The Washington Redskins are:

1. Run by horrible ownership, a man that once cheered for a team and has single handily run it into the grown. Jimmy Hoffa's corpse ain't as deep in the end zone as the 2009 Washington Redskins.

2. Draft picks, trades, free agents, coaches, practice squad....Vinny Cerrato...does anything else need to be said here?

3. Strongest fan base in the NFL eroding before the teams eyes. Dan Snyder could give free tickets to Six Flags (more fun) or greasy hamburgers to every season ticket holder and promise not to sue them, but it isn't going to stop the avalanche of crap football that is flying down Capitol Hill today.

You see, this is a DEBACLE in the making. It all started in 1999 when Snyder bought the Redskins from the great estate of Jack Kent Cooke. Little (no pun intended) did Snyder know that his $800MM would grow into the billions, but while doing so he would slowly destroy his investment while the public and NFL vets screamed and shouted louder every season. The other owners secretly laughed at this little rich man as he showed the rest of the league how to make money from die hard fans, or sheep, as he calls them. If you got in his way then he'd sue you or ban you, or buy your radio station. Nothing stops this guy.

Keep going. When the shit hits the fan all you have to do is bring back a legendary coach for $5.5MM a year to quiet the storm for a few years...then back to your Norv/Marty/Terry/Spurrier ways. Let the bug eyed Cerrato draft a punter or two, waive his pom-poms over a 5th, 6th, or 7th round pick making the team (aren't they supposed to if you DRAFTED them?).

Poor Zorn, the guy is nice, but he is just another Spurrier. Stuck with Vinny and Dan chomping on their cigars with Sonny, watching the next great offensive offense to hit Washington. FedEx Field is dead. Redskins Park is a mausoleum. Readkins Nation is heartbroken. The Detroit Lions are 1-19.

Redskins vs. Ravens - The BLAME GAME

Wow...I know it's pre-season, but that WAS BAD. The Redskins got their asses handed to them, but at least the punter looked decent. A Dan Snyder drone called me a couple hours before the game begging me to renew my season tickets (that I waited 11 years for)....Hell no, I said. I'll have more on that decision later. But most of it has to do with these ass clowns:

The answer to why the offensive line is full of undrafted free agents can only be answered by those two fantasy football gurus above. We'll never know what the picks the Redskins gave up for Jason Taylor could have been on this roster. And to think this all started back with Jeff George...the writing has been on the wall for almost a decade...THEY NEVER LEARN.

Next week, Pittsburgh.

Former Redskin Leigh Torrence Now A Saint

The New Orleans Saints claimed former Washington Redskins cornerback Leigh Torrence off waivers according to a report. Leigh Torrence was a back up corner under Carlos Rogers, Fred Smoot, and Shawn Springs. He was a stand out special teams player, and very active in the Washington DC community. Couldn't find a nicer guy. He was released over the weekend to make room for newly signed cornerback DeAngelo Hall, a two time Pro Bowler.

The Saints now have a good corner back/special teamer, but more importantly a good person with a good head on his shoulders. More info on Leigh and his on/off field life can be found at:
