Why do NFL teams recycle?
There are so many good football men under the publicity surface that deserve chances to lead teams.
Yet after the news Thursday that Washington Redskins executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato had resigned comes the news that he will be replaced by Bruce Allen.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired Allen after the 2008 season.
So let me get this straight: Allen isn't good enough to work for the Bucs, but he's good enough for the Redskins and Dan Snyder?
What the Redskins should've done is hire a young, energetic, smart personnel man to turn things around, much like the Atlanta Falcons did with Thomas Dimitroff.
Hire a football junkie, a lifer.
All those men have spent time working their way up the scouting ladder. All deserve chances to work running a team.
Recycling is good for the environment.
It's not good when it comes to running NFL teams.
