- After not winning much, Dan Snyder decides to back off his approach and let his people lead a more measured approach to build for the long term. Splashy moves are foregone.

- After continued mediocrity Dan Snyder in 2018 sees the stands empty, hurting his revenue.

- Dan Snyder concludes that the organization needs splash and buzz or his personal return on investment suffers.

I think the long experiment to build sensibly for sustained success is over. Snyder is going back to being Snyder. That means big splash at WR as hinted by JP Finlay, and it means doing whatever he needs to get his guy at coach, including instructing the team to stock up on Alabama players in a ploy to lure Saban, who once complained about not having control over his own destiny in the NFL.

Get Saban his guys and he may feel differently about the NFL.

Ready or not Dan Snyder is back. Woe is us. But that's the reality.
Can't say I disagree, but the "logic" by DS is confusing to me at this point. It would have to be one hell of a splash to regain this fan base I think. Something akin to RG3 to get butts back in the seats. I just don't think Landon Collins or even an AJ Green would cut it at this point.

It's a sliding scale, not all or nothing.

If they make a big splash WR trade is that likely to:

a) have zero impact on attendance
b) have some impact on restoring lost attendance
c) fill the stadium all the way back up again

To me it's probably b. How much, who knows. All Snyder knows is his stadium was full when he was being splashy. And if he gets some of the butts back in seats, it's still worth more revenue than he had last year, even if not all of the butts are back.
