And who can forget the way he acted after the death of Sean Taylor.

He's the real deal.

Re: The Snyder Monologues

Thank God we have an owner who cares. We could have Al Davis, or the folks in Detroit for owners.

Snyder and Cerrato have done a great job managing the cap, finding some diamonds in the rough, and having faith/confidence in Zorn/Blache.

EDIT: As Smoot said, I'll bet a majority of the solid personnel decisons are being made by Campbell and Cerrato is getting out of the way and letting this guy do his job.

I think it's great. Snyder has been guilty of trying too hard, instead of trusting his people. Being a small business owner I can understand how that happens. I've learned to hire good people and let them do what you hired them for, and I think he has too.

Re: The Snyder Monologues

I love that kind of passion from an owner. Too many owners are more concerned about the bottom line before winning. Regardless of what you think of the man or his methods, he can never be accused of not caring.

Re: The Snyder Monologues

I think it has been a learning process with Snyder. His actions were typical of a person with money, he thought he could get a SB trophy by buying his way to one. However, he has learned patience, trusting the people that work for him, and learn to grow as an owner.

Re: The Snyder Monologues

Yeah these reactions show how passionate he is about the team. You can also see with all that passion how easy it was for him to be meddlesome for such a long time. I'm glad Gibbs finally drilled into his head the importance of letting football minds make football decisions. We've been solid ever since. I agree with Ruhskins. It's been a learning process, but he's obviously getting much better.

Here, here! Very true. His wife also rode with Renaldo Wynn to the hospital after he was hurt a couple of years ago. They are both class acts.

Exactly. We all act like that or worse. I think it's great. It's good to see some of that fire.

I hear ARE did another version of Zorn's HIP HIP HOORAY yesterday. I wish we could see that one.

They'll probably show it on Inside the NFL this week, or on NFL.com if they make this the game of the week.

There's really no proof of that. From all accounts Vinny is now running the football side of things, I think that's pretty evident from the way the draft and offseason went. And actually the last few offseasons have been pretty uneventful and very un-Snyder like. I think it's safe to say his hand is out of the cookie jar. This isn't the same Dan Snyder that bought the team.

Re: The Snyder Monologues

We hav an owner who loves his team like we love this team. He has the money and the desire to make this work. At then end of the day you can count on one hand the owners in this league who have the money and singular motivation to win in this league. Maybe his tactics in the past haven't worked or were simply misdirected but I still think he is a top owner in this league. I really can't think of more than 2 or 3 that I'd "rather" have. Operationally speaking.

Re: The Snyder Monologues

All Dan wants to do, is see the Redskins win football games. It's been that way from the first time he bought the team. Because he is a big fan, he has been guilty of trying to do anything in his power to make them a winner instantly. He has taken a lot of heat from the media and fans outside of the Redskin family. I love him. I like an owner that wants to win and tries to put the best product on the field always. I hate owners that just look at the bottom line and field a team just good enough to sell seats and license merchandise.
