Depends on the owner. Some GM's make those kind of calls and basically run the whole show.

i think the question should be something along the lines of Yes or No: "Do you trust Snyder to make the best football decision for this team as opposed to trying to make a major splash (aka Spurrier 2.0)"

It seems like the majority of the players want Williams to be the next head coach and as of now we have no word as to whether or not he's even going to get an interview. Something about that doesn't sit well with me.

I'm not a huge fan of Gregg Williams, but all the players seem to support him and Bill Cowher's not walking thru that door people. For the sake of continuity and locker room politics it seems like Grilliams is the way to go, but will Snyder do the right thing?
No. I don't trust him at all. He's probably going to go back to his old ways now that Gibbs isn't around. Gibbs is the only guy that I think Snyder really really respects.

Not to hijack this but I've seen a lot of people say they don't like GW. Why? 3 out of 4 years he has had a top 10 defense with what I would call average to slightly above average talent. Meanwhile, Gibbs side of the ball, which is the offense, has had trouble scoring points all 4 years he was here. Basically the defense has carried the team and if there was any kind of offense in 04 we make the playoffs. For the life of me I don't understand why people don't like GW.

Re: Do you trust Snyder?

No, Synder is a marketing guy who will always look at this team as a money making scheme. If he wanted to bring a super bowl back to d.c. he would have hired people who know about football. We need a GM plain and simple. We need a president as well. Vinny just does not know what he is doing. We need a GM first then a coach. We need to hire Chris Polian to be the GM (Colts). We need to hire young coach who will be here for the next 10 years instead of the turnover we have had over the last several years. We need to start building through the draft as well as make a little splash in free agency. Let fix our front office first then address our head coach. The only thing that should be a must is Saunders remaining as the offensive coordinator as well as making him the quarterback coach. Again I say this SYNDER WILL NOT DO THE REASONABLE THING FOR THIS TEAM SINCE HE DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE GAME OF FOOTBALL BUT HE CAN MARKET HIS TEAM THOUGH!! Until we get some proper structure in the front office which leads to coaching we will not win a super bowl nor will we reach it.

An overwhelming majority are in favor of Williams taking over according to our poll (76%).

Yes, because a GM is the cure-all to all of our woes. I know I'm not the only one here that thinks Snyder knows what he's doing now. I feel like he's tweaked a flawed system, and has finally turned a major corner...

IMO our F.O. has done an outstanding job since Gibbs has taken over the reigns. I'll tend to agree here with Snyder. If it aint broke, don't fix it. I guess we'll see.

Re: Do you trust Snyder?

President? GM? Those are just titles really.

Anyhow, we obviously are looking at young coaches (heck even Williams is only 49). We have been building some depth through the draft, expect more now as we keep most of our picks, we are making small splashes in free agency.

Look, this all goes back to was Gibbs able to reshape the culture at Redskins Park during his four years here. Obviously we don't know for sure. But we'll always have those who are deadset against ever thinking Snyder actually cares about this team and he's just looking to profit. Dick Clark Productions, Six Flags, Johnny Rockets those are his "business" The Redskins are his passion.

Has he made mistakes? Of course. Will he make more? No question. But to say he's not putting forth any effort, and to just assume that everything Gibbs worked toward establishing is automatically gone now is crazy.

Do I trust Snyder? Implicitly

I mean... Death to Dan Snyder!

Re: Do you trust Snyder?

He will do the right thing if his hire does not require major changes in the locker room and on the rest of the coaching staff. I think we got a good thing going.

Re: Do you trust Snyder?

I trust his intentions...he cares deeply about the redskins. However, I do not trust his decision making when it comes to football matters.

I know what you're saying, but could look at it a couple of ways though. Snyder has already interviewed 1 candidate & that's confirmed, and according to another post here he may be on the way to talk to Grimm.

For all we know, it's his impatience that's driving these meetings, rather than being patient & talking to the in-house candidates.

Don't get me wrong, to be thorough he's got to talk to all of these guys before they're scooped up by other teams, but at the same time his eagerness to set up interviews w/them could be due to looking for the theoretical quick fix hire, rather than patiently working through the details of keeping this staff intact. I don't know one way or another, but I think there are signs of DS reverting to past form.

No in-house disgussion necessary. GW knows he has the job Dan S. is just making his rounds. Done deal pal.... GW all the way!

I think you may be reaching a bit here.

If he already knows what he has in-house, and by now I'm sure there have been some in-house discussions with Williams, I don't think the fact he's out there interviewing other coaches should be misconstrued has him not being patient.
