One could argue that all the coaches you mention are much more successful coaches than RR yet DS still meddled with them. DS will meddle with RR, he cant help himself.

The only exception is he left Gibbs alone, so if he sees Rivera in the same light as Gibbs we just might have a chance. Maybe.

Good point about Gibbs but DS didn't grow up watching RR and cheering for his teams. No way DS sees RR in the same light he sees Gibbs.

No he probably doesn't see Ron in the same exact way, but Gibbs was heavily involved in recruiting Ron, so there's at least that connection. And like Gibbs, Ron seems to know how to handle people very well.

Ultimately the best thing Ron can do to shield himself from Snyder is to win. He can't afford to have the team take a step back this year. Another playoff year will build significant clout for him.

Agree. Winning will make it difficult for DS to meddle and wreck the success. I think RR has a great chance to build on last season since he will have a legit pro playing QB.

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

Keeping my fingers cross that Snyder's investigation and revamping of the front office would give him pause and a clue to stay in the background and let the "football minds" and RR run the show..... It's the only way we the team will enjoy success....HOPING FOR THE BEST!


Id rather have NO Cheerleaders than a "dance team"....let the fans in the stands make the noise and fire up the team! And if RR keeps them on the winning track the FANS will return to the stands!

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

If RR wins and keeps making good to great player selections, I think Snyder will stay away. I worry far less about the owner making big or small football decisions as with him being part of the draft/FA player choice process. Thatís the biggest way he undermined all the good to great HC that he brought in. No HC can win if youíre bringing in mediocre talent in the draft OR trading away your draft picks for overpaid or over-rated or over-the-hill FA. Snyder and his lackey GMís also made incredibly dumb HC choices such as Zorn or cutting HC after just one season (8-8) Schottenheimer.

I think the thing that has impressed me the most about RR is how he is managing the FA market and milking every $ of our cap money. He hasnít over-reached for FA, which was something that Snyder could NEVER DO. Snyder was always more interested in getting a single ďBig BANGĒ FA each Spring, versus upgrading a bunch of problem areas across the team.

I suppose it is possible for Snyder to finally learn from a professional like Rivera but eventually this team will falter or have a below average season. THAT will be the test for Snyder. Can he stay out of the personnel decision-making process, especially for he disagrees with RR?

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

I agree with that assessment. If Ron wins, he'll keep running things. He's a strong enough personality to put Dan at ease.

If the team isn't winning, Dan's tinkering tendency may arise, and with Ron, it may lead to some conflict.

I agree and that worries me.
