The Washington Redskins have fired team president Bruce Allen.

Allen was shown the exit Monday morning after running the Redskins for several disappointing seasons.

The best word to describe Allen’s tenure running the Redskins is chaos. The team was utter chaos under his leadership. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I’m not sure how much of that is his fault compared to owner Daniel Snyder’s, but it’s safe to say Allen’s tenure was abysmal.

The Redskins were never good, he oversaw the drafting of RGIII, essentially ran Kirk Cousins out of town and the team never won enough.

Again, that’s not to say it was all his fault, but he had to go. You simply can’t have a team consumed by chaos year after year.

Luckily for Allen, I have no doubt he’ll be a hot commodity for teams looking for new executives. He won’t be unemployed for long.

Either way, the Redskins appear serious about making changes, and Allen’s departure is the latest sign of that fact.
