The Redskins are off to a nightmarish 1-9 start to begin the season, and somehow, team president Bruce Allen still has a job.
Washington lacks generational talent at nearly every position on the roster, aside from maybe receiver, and on the defensive line, with the quarterback position still a major red flag. The Redskins selected Ohio State product Dwayne Haskins in the first round of the draft earlier in the year, and he looks like a player that doesn’t even belong in professional football, given all his mechanical and football-IQ related flaws.
Allen has been making the personnel decisions for the team since 2010, when he was general manager. Somehow, he eventually earned a raise to his current position, where he remains, despite the team sporting the second-worst record in the league.
It’s known that Allen is team owner Dan Snyder’s right-hand man. He does, after all, say all the “right things,” like when he praised the Redskins for their “culture” roughly one month ago.
