“The crowd noise, the fans, it’s really turned into one of the iconic venues, just from a historic standpoint, even though it may not be the most flashy," he added. "I enjoyed playing there. I didn’t have a lot of success, but overall, I just think there’s still something about coming and playing there, just because of how it’s shaped. You get a lot of stadiums now, like in Tampa and Seattle, that are kind of open on one end, and Washington isn’t that way.”
“He’s tried to build the team up on the offensive and the defensive lines,” McFarland said of Allen. “You draft Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, Brandon Scherff. You try to build a football team just the way that most GMs do around the league. Quarterback, offensive line, defensive line.
"The real issue is (Allen) is running the program. A GM can't control the team," Lombardi told 106.7 The Fan. "I would tell Dan, look we need to rebuild this organization from top to bottom."
In the nine years since Allen has joined the Washington front office, the team has amassed a 59-86-1 record and made two playoff appearances without a win.
