The Danny isn't the sole source of this team's struggles. However, he hired the coaches and is intimately involved in player acquisition matters. It's pretty hard not to blame him for a lot of our problems when he exercises that much power and has been around for the past 10 years.
Well Snyder's mistake was choosing Vinny after Gibbs left. I don't think he realized at the time, but realizes it now, how many people could not and would not work with Vinny Cerrato. Gregg Williams and Jim Fassel being two examples. Even Cerrato and Spurrier had issues with each other. Brian Mitchell basically said it the other day-the problem isn't Snyder, so much as it's Cerrato. Unfortunately though, Snyder is the reason Cerrato is here. And Cerrato is the reason Zorn is here

And I don't think it's so much Cerrato's abilities as pro personnel guy. Personally, I don't think they are as terrible as others think. But it's his attitude he carries and the negative impact on the franchise's culture that has really hurt this franchise.

As for Jerry Jones, even as a Redskins fan I must say he runs a solid organization. They've had some weird stuff with all the TO drama and whatever's going on with Wade Phillips. But Jones is on top of his shit and he's a really smart man. Really smart.

DS needs a GM who has the stones to look him in the eyes and say, look man, I'm one of the best, I can get a job by snapping my fingers and I don't need your obscene salary, and if you really want me, give me all the authority.

Unless some one is able to sack up in that manner, DS is going to keep using this team like his personal madden franchise
