Snyder Isn't Going Anywhere

Posted on: September 28, 2009 12:46 pm
 

I understand the frustration with the owner but he isn’t going anywhere ladies and gentlemen.  Hopefully he can wake up and smell the coffee this morning.  The organization’s philosophy of trading away draft picks and acquiring high priced free agents that are past their primes is NOT WORKING!  Sure it might create hype during the off-season and sell a bunch of jerseys and season tickets, but it has not and will not help the team progress into a contender.  Also, it’s obvious the fans aren’t buying into that crap anymore.  Snyder needs to fire Vinny and bring in a coach and/or GM with superior scouting ability and a proven record for brining along and teaching young players how to play the game right!  I’m worried though, because of Snyder’s record of hiring/firing coaches…….a great coach/GM might not want anything to do with this organization.

Time to lower expectations……I, like many other Skins fans had high expectations for this season.  The defense would be stout and our offense would be much improved from last season.  Reality check please!  The reality for this season and probably the next few is that this team can’t compete with the Giants and the Eagles in the NFC east (but we can dang-sure beat the Cowboys any day of the week!). 

I vote to blow-it-up and rebuild with young talent.  It starts with building the o-line, d-line and QB.  The Giants and Eagles have given us the blue-print!  Heck, you could even look at how the Capitals blew-up their team 4-5 years ago.  Now they have the best young talent in the NHL!  I say keep our younger talent but trade any of the veterans for draft picks now!!  I’m not married to any of them.  There is not one Darrell Green, Art Monk, Joe Jacoby, Sean Taylor or John Riggins in the bunch.  The only possible exception (in my opinion) is Chris Cooley.    

Sure, we might upset a top-tier team here or there but we can’t (and won’t) do it with consistency.  We are also not as bad as the bottom-tier teams in this league.  As Zorn likes to say….we try to stay “medium”.  By my count there are at least 8 teams in the NFL that are worse than the Skins.  To me, there is no difference between being the 24th worst team or the 32nd worst team.  Actually, it would be better to be the worst.....so we would get a higher draft picks next year! 

I vote to blow this team up and start over.  Current players have no confidence and the fans don’t expect any magic out of this team.
I honestly hope they prove me wrong.  But I’ve lost any hope for this bunch.

What the heck! I keep dropping like this and i'll be a rookie again! Anyway, the skins were impressive the other night against the vaunted colts led by superstar peyton manning. I think as the season progresses and this offensive line gets to learn more about working with each other we will see a playoff bound team! GO SKINS!!!

This morning i was talking to a fellow football fan and he had some interesting info. He had read that the Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable team as far as what it is worth in dollars. The next most valuable is none other than the Washington Redskins!!! This bodes well for us in that, these two rivals are trying to really put out the effort, at least in terms of spending, to be competetive. It is going to be one heck of a season in the NFC east!

This teams losing days are OVER! With the coach, the quarterback, and the receiving corps that we now have in place, not to mention the running game, we are going to see the Skins as a perennial post season  fixture. We are on our way to some kind of enjoyable season this year folks! Go burgandy and gold!!!

Snyder Isn't Going Anywhere

Like I told my brother yesterday after the game when he called me...there's a curse on that stadium and this franchise, and its name is Daniel M. Snyder. Am I right, or am I right??
It is a little too early for me to buy into the JKC curse.  We really haven't had a "Super Bowl or Bust" team under Snyder (at least not recently).  I'm sure if the team continues to lose for the next 5-10 years the JKC curse theory will gain some steam. 

I miss Frank Herzog too!  He was awesome.  However, I don't miss the old stadium name....that was terrible.  What was it...Ral-John?  Horrible!

     In a way, Clinton Portis was wrong. Dan Snyder isn't risking losing the fans; he lost 'em the day he took over this franchise.
     It started when he took Jack Kent Cooke's name off HIS (JKC's) stadium and then proceeded to eradicate every vestige of JKC's legacy. THEN he fires Frank Herzog after 25 years of calling Redskins games on radio...just because Frank dared to tell the truth about the '03 Skins!!! Then there's everything else you said.
