Ok, well it was something I think I heard when we switched owners. Well I have a terrible memory, plus I am getting facts from the media, my bad.

All the experts have said cap hell was inevitable for a while now. Hasn't happened.

Also, Snyder was and is a huge Skins fan. The quote about not following football, is flat out false.

Is Dan Snyder a good owner??



Is a frog's ass watertight?

Re: Is Dan Synder doing a good job?

snyders only mistake is making football decisions without getting input from football people.if there wasnt a cap,dan snyder would buy whatever the skins needed to succeed.he is one of us,a true fan who wants nothing but the best for the skins.i just hope he is paying attention now so when coach gibbs retires for good he knows what it takes in this league to win

So true, if you want to know how bad Snyder wants to win just go back and look of that clip of him jumping up and down like a kid who just got his first bike when moss scored his second TD in the first Dallas game.

Re: Is Dan Synder doing a good job?

Did anyone catch the Joe Gibbs Show on Sportstalk 980 on Monday night? Gibbs was talking about how much Snyder does for the team and he said something like "Just last night he made a decision that I know is going to cost him a lot of money but it's good for the team, but I can't get into what it is right now"

Any thoughts as to what that might have been?

If he never shows up at a scouting meeting or in the draft room or fires up Redskins' One for a free agent buzz without Joe Gibbs filing the flight plan, we'll all be far better off.
AMEN! Sign the checks, hand out the cigars, and cop a feel from the Redskins Cheerleaders every once in a while.

He is wrapping up a deal that will keep this coaching staff intact for many years and to turn the reigns over to Gregg Williams. Just a guess, but much of the impressions of how bad of an owner Daniel Snyder is has been portrayed in the media, the same asses who predicted us to finish last this year, the same to say the game had passed Gibbs by, same that said Moss is injury prone and we just got screwed with the Moss trade, do I need to go on. Snyder has become very patient and it began before Gibbs got here and only improved greater when Gibbs did get here. He went out and got players that the coaches wanted it is not his fault that Spurrier can recruit the hell out of College players and can throw it around on lesser college teams, but when you go to build a team with Trung Candidate as your # 1 back and can't game plan for anyone, it seems to make even the good talent you have on your team look like shit when you are just out coached on Sunday's. Snyder is one hell of a business man and though he was a fan, good business people suceed and surround themselves with good people which he has done with Gibbs and his staff.

Re: Is Dan Synder doing a good job?

He's doing better just by letting football people make the on field decisions. I assume that since he's kept himself out of the news lately, that's also a good thing. Now all he has to do is put his picture and profile in the back of GAMEDAY, the game programs sold at FedEx. I go to the games to see Joe Gibbs and the players, yet Snyder is the first face you see when you open the book! :frusty:

Re: Is Dan Synder doing a good job?

If there is some question about D being a HUGE fan. Did not everyone see him after the second Moss TD in the first Dallas game? I thought he was coming out of the owners box. It was cool! I can forgive him much, as with all the stuff he does, it is ALL aimed toward winning (at least in his mind). He also did the most intelligent thing imaginable toward that goal. He hired Joe! Think about how YOU felt when you heard the news???????????? Priceless

Well, that only mistake happens to be the most important and biggest mistake that can be made when trying to build a winning team! and, Danny has tried to buy what he thought the skins needed is the past, and that has gotten us a remarkable best season record of 8-8. I do agree he has a passion for his team, as all of us do. However, he can not let is passion for the team cloud his decision regarding football related issues. He is a marketing genious, as we all know. But he was nothing more than a fan when he bought this team. He has as much qualification and pedigree to make the decisions as you and I do. He has not surrounded himself with people of great football knowledge and hopefully soon will. He is having the benefit of watching his boyhood idol in Gibbs standing on the sideline, thats why he is out of the picture right now. Hopefully this is a good learning experience for the next coach that comes in, to just sign the checks, and leave all the "football stuff" to the coach and hopefully the GM , and player scout.

Re: Is Dan Synder doing a good job?

Since hiring Gibbs Snyder gets an A+, #1 for hiring a legend who knows a thing or two about building a winner and #2 for staying out of the way.

Prior to that, he definitely made his share of mistakes, but then again what first time owner wouldn't?

He takes a lot of heat and I think he almost likes it that way. If Gibbs 2.0 turns out to be a failure, people will undoubtedly say Snyder had something to do with it. If Gibbs 2.0 is a success, people will praise Gibbs' ability to win in spite of Snyder. It's a win/win for Gibbs.
