Re: Snyder Consulting With Haynesworth

That's a rather odd question coming from a hands on owner like Snyder. As deeply involved in the team as he is, having to ask a player what we need to do to win makes me wonder why he does not know the answer already.

Re: Snyder Consulting With Haynesworth

Well it's aid that DS still consults with Joe Gibbs often, he has a head coach, he hired another consultant FOR the head coach. Made that consultant the offensive play caller.

Now he is asking AH. What's next?

I wonder if DS has one of those "magic 8 balls" on his desk.

Re: Snyder Consulting With Haynesworth

I think the article is important. It's a glimpse of Snyder "playing" w/ his shiny new toy, similar to how he buddied-up to CP years ago. I doubt Snyder really expects phat Al to have a plan to turn the team into a winner (I mean my God if he were serious in this inquiry Snyder must be the most naive owner in the league), because Albert knows nothing about building a roster and motivating that roster to leave everything on the field and execute to perfection...Albert knows about playing his position.

...the story is just one more reminder of what Snyder refuses to do: hire the best GM available to finally do something w/ this franchise and get completely out of the way. He should be having those 30 min conversations w/ the GM, not phat Al. Everything I hear makes me think Snyder is just further away from doing the right things. I won't be surprised if he goes another 10 years as the biggest failure in football, and at that point who knows if he'll see fit to ever change.

That's the same impression I got when I read it. It doesn't feel like things are heading in a direction of positive change. I wish I was hearing different stories than I am.

In my personal opinion, I see no reason that Vinny Cerrato can't be let go right now. If Snyder is that concerned and with fan sentiment like he is portraying, he could make that one move and shut fans up until the offseason where he hires a successor.


I don't think everything that can be done is being done at this point. Snyder is noted for doing that with our roster so why can't this be done with our front office?

Re: Snyder Consulting With Haynesworth

from the lips of fat albert "I don't know what [critics] have against Mr. Snyder. But as far as I know, I mean, he's a guy who has the money and he wants to win and he'll do almost anything to win."

i think that says alot it self

Re: Snyder Consulting With Haynesworth

I am glad that he is at least asking players that question instead of his GM. AH did play on a very good Titans team last year so maybe that has something to do with it

How dare you post something rational.

Re: Snyder Consulting With Haynesworth

To me, Snyder asking Haynesworth for solutions is like a principal asking a student what the curriculum for the year should be.

The students would only give you valuable advice if you both are academically on the same grade level.

Thankfully for the American educational system, you need to acquire a higher level of learning than the people you are teaching.

Maybe I am taking your statement the wrong way, if so sorry. Isn't one big complaint about Snyder that he doesn't KNOW football. I am sure he never played DT, so from that viewpoint DS would be the junior and AH the teacher.
Overall though I still would rather he keep his comments and discussions at the coach/and higher level. It just distracts.

Re: Snyder Consulting With Haynesworth

did anyone see nbc4 sports during the 6 oclock hour yesterday, it showed a video of practice where snyder was in redskins black tshirt and a pair of redskins gym shorts standing next to portis in shoulder pads talking about god knows what, it was just weird seeing him out there like he was a back coach talking to portis, i really don't like that guy maybe you hadn't heard

The analogy is supposed to point to how things should be.

In our case though Snyder is the principal who doesn't have a teaching degree or a masters of any kind. His best solution is to ask around to see if someone knows what the hell their doing because he sure doesn't.


Just the fact that he is asking players about their opinion on this situation is physical evidence enough that he has NO CLUE in dealing with football operations. Someone who may have personal knowledge is an actual GM or Team President who has vast experience to make decisions like these...Check into it Dan!

And don't surround yourself with fools because people far away won't be able to tell who is who.
