Memory Lane For Bruce & George Allen 2

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 2, 2012 – 10:14 am

See Part One

Our walk down Memory Lane for Bruce and George Allen continues today as the brothers get into an era of Redskins history they know very well.

That’s because it’s the era when their father, George Allen — or as their kids call him, “Grandcoach” — turned Washington into one of the more successful teams in the NFL.

George, who lived by the mantra “the future is now,” was a 2002 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee who compiled a 116-47-5 regular season record as the Redskins’ head coach from 1971 through 1977.

Bruce — the current general manager of the Redskins — and George — the former governor of Virginia — took a stroll down the “Hail To The Redskins Walk” Wednesday at Redskins Park, and Redskins.com was there with our cameras.

Here’s the third of six videos of Bruce and George Allen talking about the Redskins greats:

And here’s the fourth video:
