Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen had a “painful” day he said was fitting for a “painful” season.
Allen met with Owner Daniel Snyder and Mike Shanahan at 9 a.m. Monday morning to relieve Shanahan of his duties to the franchise. The GM met with assistant coaches throughout the day, then addressed the media four hours after the dismissed coach made a statement.
Allen stressed that that every member of the organization had a part in a 3-13 season. He spoke to the media about how the franchise has begun its search for a new head coach, what the criteria for that position will be and what the club will learn from a regular season full of distractions.
He talked about how the world of sports lends itself to instant evaluation, how to create stability and how NFL teams can complete quick turnarounds.

Who could’ve guessed a man with a surfer-boy image would help lead the Redskins to their most successful period in franchise history?
Former Redskins’ general manager Bobby Beathard was one of the chief architects of the Redskins’ three Super Bowl-winning teams of the 1980s and early 1990s.
His drafting prowess — which included the likes of Art Monk, Russ Grimm and Darrell Green — was second to none, including the Redskins’ 1981 draft class that is regarded as one of the greatest ever.
