    Helmet Om Field: 2010 Offseason As Seen From Afar

    This is a strange time of year for the gridiron obsessed. Free Agency has dwindled to a trickle and the occasional second (third?) tier signing. The NFL Draft is a memory. Training camp is still a couple months away. It would be easy, if one was to allow it, to lose sight of the seismic shift that has taken place in the world of the Washington Redskins.

    At the very top, Daniel Snyder is still the owner. Beyond that, however, not much remains of the previous administration ... or even the previous several.

    Departed, unlamented de facto General Manager Vinny Cerrato, tragi-comic symbol of the dysfunction that has befallen the storied Redskins brand since Jack Kent Cooke died in 1977 ... gone. In his place, Bruce Allen, legacy, son of former Redskins Hall of Fame Head Coach George Allen.

    Bruce Allen may not a reputation superstar quite on the level of the Indianapolis Colts' Bill Polian or even Baltimore's Ozzie Newsome, but is generally respected both in and out of the game. He is, in short, the "real GM" Redskins fans loudly and consistently have called for over recent years. It is also the biggest surprise in recent years---no one saw Cerrato's departure coming.

    Former Head Coach and quasi-granola Jim Zorn, as likable as they come but clearly not ready for the big headset handed to him two years ago ... gone. In his place, Mike Shanahan, future first-ballot Hall of Fame Head Coach.

    Yes that Mike Shanahan. The one with the two Super Bowl titles. The list of NFL head coaches who have won two or more Super Bowls is special enough: Vince Lombardi, Don Shula, Chuck Noll, Bill Walsh, Joe Gibbs, Bill Parcells, Jimmy Johnson, Bill Belichick and Mike Shanahan.

    Know who has won two in a row?

    Vince Lombardi, Don Shula, Chuck Noll, Bill Walsh, Bill Belichick ... Mike Shanahan.
