Re: Steve Largent rips Snyder's handling of the team

After reading this, a part of me almost wants to see Philly embarrass us Monday night. Zorn is gone, even if he by some miracle gets us to 8-8. We need a historically bad season to get Snyder to see that his blueprint for building a winner is an utter failure. I believe that only a 3 or 4 win season will force Snyder to fire Cerrato and consider giving control to a top flight GM.

Re: Steve Largent rips Snyder's handling of the team

Snyder tries his best to be the next best thing to Jimmy Jones and Marty Schot, but without the knowledge of the game and faith in personnel.

This is another GRAND example of how thinking and managing short-term will get NO long term results. (ie Hiring Gibbs to fill seats).

Re: Steve Largent rips Snyder's handling of the team

Am I the only one that has had this idea.......? Since Snyder likes to make headlines and throw his money around by hiring "big names", why doesn't he spend some money to bring Bill Cowher out of retirement?

That old school, hard-nosed, run-centric, disciplined style of football is exactly what is needed for the NFC East.

I bet Cowher would only come if he had control and had a REAL support stem around him (from Owner to GM).

HIRE BILL COWHER!!!

Bro, Cowher ain't the answer. Gruden ain't the answer. This is all about Vinny and Snyder. I promise you, unless Snyder get's rid of Vinny it won't matter who we bring here.

Think about it, we've had 6 coaches in 11 years!

Re: Steve Largent rips Snyder's handling of the team

I love that Largent told more of the story. Knowing Cerrato and Snyder pulled out the contract language on Zorn is simply ridiculous. No respect for them and their dealings. As 12thMan states things will never change as long as we have Cerrato in DC. He must go.

He's also supposed to be a hot gun with previous experience with the Cowboys before going to Miami w/ Jeff Ireland.
Keep an eye also on Jimmy Raye III with the Chargers (son of former Redskins assistant coach Jimmy Raye), and Lionel Vital with the Falcons (former Redskin player). Those are two other up and comers

Yeah there's no question in my mind if Cerrato wasn't there or wasn't given so much authority then Williams may have been our HC, and if not him then definitely Fassel. I mean I don't think Snyder and Williams are great friends or anything but they could have worked together. Cerrato was the issue for Williams (and Williams for Cerrato), ditto with Fassel. And Snyder took Cerrato's side.

...not knowing much about Snyder prior to his ownership, do you have any intuition how a "media" guy can be so clueless about shaping an image? I mean whatever reputation he had is sinking like lead...and the stunts w/ Zorn over the last couple weeks only worsen the image, right? How does the dude not see what everyone else in football sees?
I don't think he's naive to what's going on, and I expect he'll make serious changes this off-season

Just consider that Zorn's best friend is a former congressman & a CEO of a company. He's a guy that has been in the public eye & knows how & when to speak. He might be outspoken, even so, the politically wise thing to do is typically bite your tongue. Yet, he's willing to put his name behind his statements.

If nothing else, that to me says something about the current climate at Redskin Park. Even George Michael has spoken up (though he only spoke poorly of Vinny's relationship building or lack thereof). I'm just waiting for the next revealing interview, maybe an ex employee or somebody that knows a lot. Wait till we play the Saints, wonder if GW will speak up then?

Re: Steve Largent rips Snyder's handling of the team

I really doubt Cowher would come here. Pat Kirwan on NFL radio yesterday said he thinks Cowher is going to be really picky and will be looking for a Pittsburgh-like situation to fall into. Meaning, wacked out unstable teams like the Skins and Cowboys are out of the picture.

I'm not defending Danny Boy, we all know he has run this team wrong and most likely he does now. Hopefully. If DS was the main culprit for this yrs debacle then fine say what you will, but it's not just him.

Snyder for picking up Cerrato and staying with him too long.

Cerrato for not building in the trenches first.

Gibbs for bailing on the team like he did in Gibbs1.

Zorn for not getting experienced NFL Asst. that could help him. Letting players run the show. Sending in the wrong play at the wrong time. Sending in the wrong play with the wrong personel.

Maybe Largent would like to expound on the last item on my list. Perhaps he would like to comment on the defensive co-ordinators across the NFL that have commented about Zorn play calling being horrific or maybe just shut up unless he can fix this anemic offense.

I don't think anybody is blaming Zorn all by himself but he sure is part of the equasion. Maybe if he "Exicuted" his scheme better.

Re: Steve Largent rips Snyder's handling of the team

Hmmm, also this coming from a former player who although had decent personal stats, played on a team that sucked for the most part until Holmgren came along.

Exactly, it's a non-story.
