Re: New Team President

Well let's not act like Donaldson and Wright aren't 100% qualified. And I think Rivera is the driver behind these moves more than Snyder anyway.

Re: New Team President

Welcome aboard Mr. Wright.

I honestly am not 100% sure what an NFL team president does. I imagine he heads the endorsement and contract negotiations, some PR stuff but most importantly is the head of all admin and employees that put on a helmet on Sundays.

We wanted people named to important positions that arent hand-tied to Snyder and that appears to be what we are getting.

I read an announcement that stated his duties will include operations, finance, sales, and marketing.

The job description likely varies from team-to-team.

He even has a football background as a player even though Coach Rivera is handling all football-related and personnel decisions, but that's an added bonus.

We saw what happens when non-football people like Vinny Cerrato touches things.
I'm not insulting him at all. I love seeing black people get high ranking jobs in the NFL because I am black. I just think Dan is doing this because he is trying to get himself in good graces with the clueless DC govt and get the movement on his side. All in all very good hires. I like what Dan is doing, even though I question why he is doing it.

Re: New Team President

Even if there's just one ounce of "PR" to these moves, who cares? This team perhaps more than any other in pro sports right now needs a good PR boost.

Re: New Team President

Julie Donaldson and James Wright both have excellent qualifications and experience for the jobs they have been hired to do. They are both very good hires regardless of any PR bonus for being viewed as politically correct.

I agree with the poster who said that Rivera is likely behind this. To me, everything since his hire has been transformative. I just hope that translates to play on the field.

EVERY business owner makes decisions based on PR and making money. Not saying EVERY decision is for personal benefit only but you have to consider it with most of your decisions to stay in business.

Dan just has the press following and scrutinizing every move he makes unlike the Amish guy who owns a hardware store in Blue Ball, PA.

Bottom line, good hire, regardless of the reason.

Re: New Team President

Rivera has been a godsend for this organization and lets hope Snyder continues to let him do his job unimpeded as he has so far.

This team has definitely under performed under Snyder and the team needs wins to prove anything but this is the best combination of Coaching staff, front office and young talent that we've had since Gibbs 2.0. If things click quickly, the next few years could be very very good. Snyder may be an idiot but he's not stupid. He's finally starting to listen to the right people. I'll be glad to see him go when it happens but I feel like this is the best chance to get on track since he bought the team.

Re: New Team President

What I also love is that he doesn't have any football authority, which means Rivera is running the show.
It looks more and more like Rivera knew what he was stepping in and asked for complete control over football operations !

@JReidESPN
Hearing back from some within the game. Consensus is this is a great, great hire for Washington’s NFL Franchise. And if he’s able to implement his plan, the hiring could be transformative for league, one high-ranking official tells me.

Re: New Team President

Over the yeas, I have read many accolades about team hires. Remember Vinny and Bruce? How they were going to lead the team to greatness? They also came in with great reviews. Between the two of them, they did more damage to the team than Snyder ever has. What counts is what he does. Ask me again in about 2 yeas what I think.

Yeah, I’m liking the hire. Sounds like a natural fit
