Re: Final Say on Personnel

I don't think they should change a thing with their front-office structure. here are the players this front office group "hit" on:

Marcus Washington
Cornelius Griffin
Shawn Springs
Clinton Portis
Walt Harris
Sean Taylor
Chris Cooley
Joe Salavae'a
Ron Warner
Garnell Wilds
Antonio Brown (I'd call him a hit at his salary level, just based on his little return duty last season)

Players they wiffed on:
Mark Brunell (bad cap consequences, though he restructured)
Mike Barrow (moderate cap consequences, though he restructured and could redeem himself)
Corey Raymer (small cap consequences)
Ralph Brown (no cap consequences)
Walter Rasby (no cap consequences)
Vaughn Parker (no cap consequences)

This front office group has added to our core, and most of the mistakes they've made have had minimal salary cap impact. The Coles situation is up for debate, but I don't think it's fair to call for a GM over that issue until you see the results on the field in 2005.

Re: Final Say on Personnel

Unlike a lot of people, I actually like the structure they have now. Yes, Snyder is involved, but I get the distinct impression that his part in making football decisions is diminished now with Gibbs having more pull, and with Williams having a say on the defensive side of things. When it comes to financial matters and contracts, that's where he comes in. Vinny is a glorified scout, and don't forget about the cap expert who's name I can't recall (Scott something???). I'm sure he is involved in the decision-making to some extent.

Is it the right way??? Who knows....But there are certainly teams out there with a traditional GM set-up that aren't doing any better!

If they were to get a GM, who would it be? Someone older that has GM experience (and like some players, may just be looking for a "Redskins payday"), or finding an up-and-comer from another team that may be more of a risk? Either way, people would probably criticize them just as much....

The bottom line is that it doesn't matter how they do it, as long as they put more W's on the board. Until that happens, everyone will criticize.

Re: Final Say on Personnel

To me, Snyder and Cerrato are the same. They think alike when it comes to bringing in new talent. That's why I say bring in someone new. No need for having two boneheads in the front office. Snyder has the power. He doesn't need a yesman. Heck. I'm available.

Re: Final Say on Personnel

From what I heard from Gibb's today during his radio interview on sportstalk, there wont be anyone new for quite some time. Gibb's likes his structure now. He emphasized that he was implementing the same structure that was in place previously when he had GM's. He was very adamant on that point twice.

But I am available too. Maybe we can consult with Cerrato.

Re: Final Say on Personnel

a quality GM, take out Cerrato and it would be a vote among the staff and owner. with the gm pulling the trigger.

i totaly agree with you. if it aint broke,don't fix it. when the dan first came to the skins he brought in the players he wanted, when shottenheimer was here the dan kinda had his hands tied cause marty held the power, when spurrier was here the dan was back to his old ways but tried to bring guys in that "fit" into steve's offense, with gibbs here it seems like the dan is , for the most part, just signing the players that gibbs and williams tells him too. last year was great. the only real bust was brunnell. hopefully next season will show the same great results.

Re: Final Say on Personnel

I think Snyder has always signed players that the coaches wanted, besides his rookie season as an owner. He's learned since then and we've made pretty good offseason moves, this year aside.

Re: Final Say on Personnel

I think the coaching staff and GM should work together....Snyder had too much imput in previous years......for example, DEION SANDERS to name one former stars past their prime. I bet if Gibbs wasn't here Snyder would've signed Randy Moss....sounds like a Snyder move. I like the way Snyder is stepping back, and letting his football staff run the show.

Daseal, you don't think that we've made pretty good offseason moves this year?
