By Rebecca Sheir

Fans of the Washington Redskins are still abuzz about Vinny Cerrato stepping down as the Washington Redskins' top executive, and Bruce Allen stepping up.

At a sports bar in downtown D.C., fans seem to agree: it's been a rough season, and it's time for a change.

"It's a move for the Redskins in a positive direction. Hopefully from here on out they can have a rebirth," one says.

"Well, I say it's a good move," says another.

And John Maynard of Takoma Park, Maryland says, "It is a good move. And we'll see who the next victims are."

In other words, Maynard thinks the "change" isn't necessarily over.

"I think this is the beginning of further shakeups in the organization," he says. "The team's gonna look a lot different next year, most likely. We'll see if Snyder is the next one to go."

Dan Snyder bought the Redskins in 1999, and has drawn criticism for never hiring a general manager to assemble the roster and coaching staff. Bruce Allen will be the first to bear the title. And Redskins fans hope he'll be the first to turn the team around.
