Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

Now here is the tricky part....how do we get these great ideas to DS and get him to live and learn it? It doesn't seem that difficult.

Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

OK If I am Dan Snyder here is what I do:

Nothing- I got a butt load of money, I have surounded myself with yes men and my team has a fan base that is loyal.

I will sit in my office plan how much to raise ticket, beer and parking prices next year and continue to play human fantasy football while my team goes in the crapper.

oh wait, that is the real Snyder and the question was what will I do if i was him...Hmm something different than that....

Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

Washington needs housecleaning at every level of the organization.

1. Fire Vinny and the entire coaching staff at the end of the year. No use firing them sooner, things are not going to get any better.

2. Reorganize. Hire a strong and experienced general manager and give him full authority to build a winning franchise. Hire coaching staff that fits his philosophy.

3. The Redskins should completely rebuild their offense. The only keeper in my book is Chris Cooley, maybe Santana Moss if the contract is right. Everyone else is expendable.

4. Clean house on defense as well. Smoot, Rodgers, Griffin, and Daniels are at the top of the list of expendables.

5. Build through the draft. Get whatever draft picks you can acquire from the overpaid, under performing, unmotivated, dead weight veterans.

6. Give the front office and coaching staff ample time to rebuild through the draft. Don't comeback next year and start another free agent spending spree.

So you clean house in a top 5 defense? Glad you're not running the team

If Zorn is not going to be here next year then Blache sure as hell won't be either.

As Redskins big time free agency transactions have proven, players don't necessarily translate to other schemes. If our next coach doesn't need any those players, I'm completely fine with that.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em. Our next coach should be appointing the players he wants for his team next year.

Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

There are some tweaks that can be made to the D sure, but you can't clean house on both sides of the ball. The D ain't broke, no need to fix it. We'll have our hands full rebuilding the OL and finding a QB.

Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

I would have said to mostly clean house on offense, but the thread was what should Dan Snyder do. I would want the newly appointed GM to mostly clean house on offense. Dan needs to stay out of that too. Since it's fun to do i would start w/ CP, ARE, R Thomas (he's a good dude but hey), possibly SM.

That kind of thinking has gotten us into the one player away mentality. We're always trying to plug things in to see if it works. Well...that just doesn't work.

Rebuilding consisits of tearing it down and building it back up the way it needs to be built. Kind of like the way the millitary does to its new recruits.

I know our defense is good but I do not want to impede the scheme or the authority of our new coach just because of what we've done in the past. If the new coach can work with it fine but I personally am expecting wholesale changes to our team.

NO, I'm not giving the defense a free pass. This so called top 5 defense can't get off the field when it counts. They have played 5 of the worse teams in football and I'm not seeing a dominating effort. They are losing the time of possession battle and defense on third down is not that good. If they are a top 5 defense they should be creating easy scoring opportunities for the offense as opposed to allowing teams to hold onto the ball forever.

Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

I would bet any coach looking at this roster would take one look at the D and say, I can work with that unit. The offense needs work, but I can win games with this D. No need to make changes just for the sake of change.

Don't piss on the D. If the Offense could stay on the field for more than 3 downs than the D would shut teams down.

Yeah...we could technically have an average defense that has just kicked the asses of weaker opponents.

We'll have a better list of defensive members who'll look like they can stay when the season is done I guess.

Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

This really is simple, there is only one step required:

1. Muster all the resources you have left to hire the very best GM possible. Include in the contract that they have 100% autonomy for X number of years where the owner will only request to be informed but will have no other day to day responsibilities.

Re: You're Dan Snyder, what's your move?

I would keep Jim Zorn, he is not over his head he just tried to do everything with the offense, His job is to be the HC, not the OC or signal caller. I would keep him to keep some sort of continuity on the offense (something that this team has lacked for a long time). Next I would hire Mike Holmgren to be the GM and give him total control of all personnel decisions. Hiring Holmgren would not only help bring in the right talent, but he would be a security blanket to Zorn. Everybody works better when they feel secure about their situation. Lastly, I would let Vinny Cerrato stick around and milk me for my money for a little while longer...every billionaire needs a good "Yes man" and a racquetball partner (Mr Burns and Smithers).
