I got bad news for you.
Snyder closed his pocket book. He isn't spending like he used to spend.
He isn't throwing money at problems hoping for instant success.
He's tired of the negative publicity and hate from the fans.

He's going to keep Rivera and staff around till their contracts expire or RR quits.
It would cost Snyder around $20mil to fire the staff and start over at the end of the season.

Snyders main focus now is to maximize profits and fuck over the fans that hate his stupid ass.

I've seen this locally with Al Davis (Raiders) and Spanos Family (Chargers).

Welcome to football purgatory.
That's a depressing take, but I have no objective evidence to argue that it isn't correct.

Re: Ron Rivera

I really don't think Ron cares that much about winning right now.. Sounds crazy but his actions speak loudly

Yeah man. Its like how we talk about it would be bitter sweet seeing him holding a Lombardi trophy.
I think he realizes that. There was a time , years ago, that winning a championship would have still endeared his dumb ass to us. Now it is too late. Between his off the field bullshit and his on the field product over the last 30 years any hopes of reshaping his public opinion with the fan base is gone. He is no longer desperate to appease us.

its pretty accurate, look at the DS of the Jeff George years trying to pay anything to win, now a days not so much. not saying throwing the Brinks truck at problems solved anything but it showed he had some desire to win.

I don't like retweeting Grant because I'm not a fan of his, but this is kinda damning too.

Trailing in 91% of games is a bad stat. But the alternative is Dan Snyder picking yet another coach and front office combo - and is that any better than Ron?

Re: Ron Rivera

I also don't think Rivera is going anywhere anytime soon. Snyder has nowhere else to turn at this point. He's also got bigger problems to worry about. Sometimes I feel the other owners realize he may never get a new stadium potentially leading to their motivation to want to oust him. I really believe that may play a role, in addition to his known terrible transgressions.

Bad is being kind. It is epically awful. It canít get worse than what is happening can it?
It isnít just the losing it is the personnel decisions. It almost seems like the plan is to lose. The drafts and the guys we let walk and the guys we sign - too many head scratching moments. Ron is a bad HC. He is an awful GM.

Re: Ron Rivera

Rivera has been a complete an utter failure. And it won't change. Just listen to any of his interviews.

He's a blowhard.

Upper crust we didnt have under Snyder.

Snyder then picks the HC and decides how we re-structure the entire organization.

^^ look at our front office/exec staff now.

its full .. and costing Snyder a ton of money. New turf, hire an asst to the asst = straight out of Snyder's profit.

before it was like 6 people .. now its an actual organization.

Snyder, im guessing, would fire half the people and gladly go back to paying pennies on the dollar with a duct tape staff.

I wonder if part of the league investigation and punishment was he NEEDS to keep certain staff positions like an HR.
They sure are into titles over there. Everyone is either a VP or a chief.

Re: Ron Rivera

I think the only move in season I would support is firing JDR and moving Chris Harris to DC

Re: Ron Rivera

Uninspired. Unprepared. Confused. Afraid. Stubborn. Surrounds himself with other idiots. Posing as a GM. Doesnít take responsibility.

Fire. Him. Now.

Re: Ron Rivera

At the very least, JDR should be packing his bags.
