The morning after another disappointing loss to the Cowboys, Bruce Allen has been fired from his position as team president.
After a decade at the helm during which the Redskins averaged 10 losses per season, Bruce Allen is officially out. The announcement was made after a particularly bad loss to the Cowboys that ended with a final score of 47 to 16.
In an online statement, team owner Dan Snyder had this to say:
"As this season concludes, Bruce Allen has been relieved of his duties as President of the Washington Redskins and is no longer with the organization. Like our passionate fan base, I recognize we have not lived up to the high standards set by great Redskins teams, coaches and players who have come before us. As we reevaluate our team leadership, culture and process for winning football games, I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead to renew our singular focus and purpose of bringing championship football back to Washington, D.C."
According to ESPN and other sources, the team leadership is meeting with Ron Rivera about the head coaching job. Could the former Panthers' HC turn the Redskins around?

Fans are frustrated with the team's performance, to say the least. Injuries and losses have had a significant impact on the Redskins' fan base. Perhaps these new changes will get people back on board. Only time will tell!
