Greg Blache stands up to Cerrato and Synder...
 
If what JLC is saying about Cerrato and Synder below is true, thank God that Greg Blatche and Gregg Williams had enough sense to stand up to them. I am worried if personnel decision making is back in the hands of Synder if what JLC says is actually true below...


"Blache, when working with former assistant head coach-defense [URL="http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Gregg+Williams?tid=informline"][COLOR=#0000ff]Gregg Williams[/COLOR][/URL] the past four years, put a premium on acquiring teachable players. Last season, for instance, owner [URL="http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Daniel+Snyder?tid=informline"][COLOR=#0000ff]Daniel Snyder[/COLOR][/URL] and Cerrato were enamored with several veteran linemen who became available -- [URL="http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Simeon+Rice?tid=informline"][COLOR=#0000ff]Simeon Rice[/COLOR][/URL], [URL="http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Sam+Adams?tid=informline"][COLOR=#0000ff]Sam Adams[/COLOR][/URL] and Corey Simon, in particular. But Blache and Williams staunchly resisted acquiring those players, with age, work habits and/or selfishness an issue (none of the bunch came close to being productive in 2007)."

If that is true, then our only hope is Greg Blatche, because he'll be the only one that can stand up to those two. But on the bright side, remember that Vinny has acknowledged that the blame will go to him if something goes wrong. I guess time will tell if we will see absolutely retarded moves like those go down, which I hope not. Then again JLC could just be going on his "Snyder and Cerrato" agenda again.

Or maybe this is just an indication that the front office listens to the coaches on personnel?

as they have in the past....Brunell (Gibbs), Lloyd & ARE (Saunders), Archuletta (GW). These moves were all pushed for by coaches.

I guess it's the off-season and there isn't much to write about until the combine & FA on March 1st so we pass the time with "Snyderatto" bashing.

[QUOTE=HOGTIMUS PRIME;424523]Cerrato is only around because he will reinforce Snyders inability to asses talent, neither has a clue about talent evaluation.[/QUOTE]

Like all the desk jockies at the Warpath do...

So big time free agents hit the market, the owner is willing to spend the money to get them as they fill an immediate need on the team, the coaches say no these aren't the kind of guys we are looking for, the owner and VP both say OK, they dont get signed, and this is a problem???

heh, nice Matty. The last few weeks ive really admired you moderators, you spend a lot of time balancing discussions and being the devils advocate so both sides are represented even if its not your opinion! Keep up the great work!

Our organization, Danny boy and Vinny included, have really grown since they got here. Originally it was just danny playing madden and signing all the free agents, but later, even though it looked like we were signign everyone, it was the coachs picks not theirs. We went out and got Brandon Llyod, and yes he didtn work out, but its not like he was some big name free agent, the coachs thought he was a great young talent so we traded for him. Sometimes things dont work out but at the time it looked like we would have 'return or the smurfs' and the second coming of the greatest show on turf, but on grass, etc, etc

I can see people being ticked if Snyderato was signing guys against the coaches' wishes, but that's simply not the case.

Move along folks, nothing to see here. Take the drama somewhere else.

Thank you and I'm glad that people notice these things once in a while. Sometimes the mods do indeed play devil's advocate for the sake of balanced discussion and too often people misinterpret this as the mods being pro-Snyder.

yea sometimes it seems like a conflict of interest to drink the kool aid, blow snyder, want to make exceptions of who we should overpay for, and talk abotu growing through the draft at the same time as wishing we could get Spurrier to come back from college and golf, but someones gotta keep the peace!

Re: Greg Blache stands up to Cerrato and Synder...
 
Anyone who really thinks Snyder and Cerrato don't listen to what coaches want should recall the Spurrier years. You can bet it wasn't either of them who were clamoring for Jacquez Green and Shane Matthews.
