IF -

Snyder decides to build a winner the right way, no.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.

The story of the offensive line problems has been on the blogs since Spurrier was here. But every season we sign flashy free agents, none of whom play on the line. We even ignore linemen in the draft.

The offensive line is 40% of your offense. And the most important 40% because they can make everyone else look good or bad. It's really insanity. He and Vinny cannot escape it.

Snyder is incapable of being hands off. And his hands, like Crazy Eddies prices, are INSANE!

Snyder needs to learn that BUYING A RING will NEVER work!!!!

You have to build a team. Tom Brady was darn near last in the draft when New England picked him up. Now look at the boy! The New York Giant's manager Jerry Reese pick a bunch of no name kids out of the draft and their roster is just deep with talent. People thought they would fall when Tiki left. They had three RB's to fill the gap (Ward, Bradshaw, and Jacobs) to win the SuperBowl the follwing year. Look at their defence...not the greatest of all time but they are STRONG with backup talent!

Its the Redskins ownership!!! Look at the all-stars they had on their team in recent years!

Jason Taylor (look below average in DC but went back to Miami and look like an all-star...again)

Trent Green (sucked in DC but played his tail off in St. Louis and KC)

Antonio Pierce (average in DC....but leads the Giants defence and has a ring)

Champ Baily (I DON'T EVEN NEED TO GO THERE...!!!)

When star players come to DC....their stock goes down royally!!!!!

It's the leadership!!!!

I'm getting ready go add Jason Cambell to the list of "Former Skins" that go on to become a success somewhere else!!!

None of those coaches has coached in the NFC East except Holmgren. He'd be my choice.

I just don't see that Snyder is going to be willing to sign the checks without having some or all of the decision-making authority. It's understandable, but that just can't work if the owner is not a football "expert"; most of them aren't, but most of them also know that. Snyder either doesn't know that he doesn't know, or doesn't care. Either way, the team loses, in every sense of the term.

Who are the people that voted "NO"?

What are you thinking????

Posted by: dbunkr | October 14, 2009 2:51 PM

Wilbon's article was not for getting rid of Snyder he just needs to step back from personnel decisions. With the money he is willing to put forward, if he is willing to give a GM full authority and just sign the checks, Snyder could be one of the best owners in the league. That being said he is the worst in the league right now (besides Crazy Al Davis). With Wilbon's suggestion Snyder would be a very effective owner since the Redskins have more financial resources than almost every team in the league. Right now it is Snyder holding the Redskins and himself back from success.

What really makes me sad is the thought that Danny-Boy is younger than I am and given, say, Jack Kent Cooke's age when he died, we've got another possible 45 years or so of this madness. The Snyder-Cerrato team has every right to continue with business as usual for decades more.

Danny has the staff in Ashburn working overtime clicking that "no" button.

Posted by: mack1 | October 14, 2009 3:37 PM

There are only two things that can save the franchise.
1. Danny boy with the friendless wonder, realizes he knows nothing about football and hires a GM. (Not gonna happen)
2. Danny gets hit by a bus and his widow sells to another rich Virginian. How about Mark Warner. We can only hope. Does anyone have a spare rosary?

Its takes more than money to form a winning team. The fact that we have the highest payroll of any NFL team and we still can't win year after year after year should tell any idiot that money is not the answer. You got guys spiking the ball and dancing in the end zone, when they are still losing. What a joke. This year I am officially giving up on the redskins. I was offered free tickets to one the games, but I turned them down because I just hate them so much.

Posted by: tom56 | October 14, 2009 4:07 PM

I clicked yes, but really I just think Vinny needs to go. If Dan had a better advisor, I think we could have a better team.

Posted by: wwc4g | October 14, 2009 4:22 PM

We don't need a new owner.What we need is for Snyder to give TOTAL control to a GM and get rid of vinny.Hire Bill Cowher, if need be throw the bank at him and go sit in the booth and watch.Snyder and skins are becoming the laughing stock of the NFL replacing AL Davis' Raiders.

Posted by: goodeedward | October 14, 2009 5:13 PM

The skins will never win the big game, as long as Snyder is the owner. He is a JOKE.

"None of those coaches has coached in the NFC East except Holmgren. He'd be my choice."

Sorry RedCherokee, Holmgren never coached in the East. He does look a lot like Andy Reid, so maybe that's the confusion.

Posted by: LLChazz | October 14, 2009 6:37 PM

The premise and the question are unrelated. In fact, the only logical answer is that no, the Redskins cannot get a new owner if the objective is to have Snyder lead the team. (How can he lead the Redskins if he is no longer the owner.)

Also, it is moronic to even comment about ownership change. It's his team. You might not like how he effed the team up but its his team to eff up. Talking about ownership change is essentially an exercise of peeing in the wind.

I prefer Danny as Coach because he spends, if he fires Cerrato it's a huge start if he hires Dungy and Polians son and agrees to stay 100% out of the game it's a super bowl.

Posted by: southportwave | October 14, 2009 7:06 PM

As long as he owns the team, I will refuse to give him the opportunity to make a single dollar off of me. That means no going to games, no going to the Jack for any event, not watching the games on TV and not even reading about the team in the press. I believe in voting with my dollars and i will continue to vote the "no" party line until he and his cronies (Cerrato) and his hacks (Michaels) are no longer affiliated with the team. In only a few short years, Danny has managed to whittle away at all of the fan goodwill and love that I ever had for thie team. I will him well and i wish him no revenue opportunities from me.

Please don't refer to Snyder as "Danny Boy;" it's offensive to the Irish.

Posted by: nwWilma | October 15, 2009 1:48 AM

This bandwagon thinking that Snyder is the the entire problem is moronic.

No wonder it was so easy for Bush to sell America on Iraq.

The Redskins problem has been one of bad personnel choices at important one position. QB.

Brad Johnson
Jeff George
Tony Banks
Shane Matthews
Patrick Ramsey
Danny Wuerffel
Tim Hasselbeck
Mark Brunell
Jason Campbell

either through a lack of ability or a mismatch for the offensive system of the coach, these QBs were bad choices.

Campbell is horrible for the west coast offense. He throws the ball 0.5 to 1 full second late which means more sacks, ints, and defended passes.

He thinks this is college where you can wait to see the receiver is open then gun it.

The west coast offense passing game is about timing where the QB throws before the receiver ever becomes open.

A QB in the west coast offense needs to be able to see that a receiver WILL BE open.

Campbell can't do that. He has zero sense of timing.

Put in Collins .. and things will change

to MP3HOARD- theismann, williams, rypien - average qb's with a ring because of the offensive line....'nuff said.
