Boooo.Ask me in three years if Allen said the right things or not.
Guilty as charged.Boooo.
It's okay to "grade" his comments in context, brother. We can opine on tone, message, delivery, etc. Doesn't mean he's going to deliver a winner, no. We'll have to look back in three years to opine on the job he did, sure--we clearly can't do that now--but there no reason we can't assess his performance in this essentially meaningless "here we go" presser.
I think you have to buy the first beer tomorrow.
amen bro i agree all the way ..time will tell as usual.Damn you guys are bitter-beer faces.
The conference was money. Allen said the right, predictable things, said them the right way, did nothing to either set expectations too high or justify concerns over where they might be headed. He checked a box--the "it's a new day starting today" box. Nothing more, nothing less.
Of note ... he made a point of saying, more than once, that the culture of the team was going to change. And the part that caught my ear was that Snyder has "entrusted us" to shape said new team and culture.
his last name is "Allen", his dna is "the future is now."If it were me, I would say "Look, guys, we're 4-12. Give us some time. We're going to need a season or two to get this right. But we will get this right."
But if you say "Hey, we can win now," it just creates a problem where you have fans expecting wins right off the bat.
