Dan Snyder has proven, throughout his ownership of the Washington Redskins, that he is seriously incapable of handling huge decisions without the allure of messing something up. Hiring major duds like Prime Time Deion Sanders, Adam Archuleta and countless of other free agent stars is a haunting stigma in Snyder's pathetic. His incoherent, none-football minded brain seems to think that the big names will move the chains as they should, because they produced well on a team beforehand. The disastrous hiring of college football legend coach, Steve Spurrier with all his Fun and Gun BS is another dandy example of Snyder's ineptness. And yet another blow: the promoting of Vince Cerrato to Executive Vice President, thus guaranteeing the team a future of even more damage.
So, as of January 26, 2008, Snyder has proven, yet again, that he is the reigning King of Screw Ups. He's fired the beloved defensive genius Gregg Williams and offensive guru Al Saunders. Upon hearing this decision, I'll be willing to bet that Jack Kent Cooke rolled over in his grave in frustration. If Redskin country isn't reeling with absolute hatred for Snyder right now, then I don't know what to make of it. Gregg Williams should have gotten the job of head coach; it was only fitting so that the tempo that the team was in could be continued even in the absence of Joe Gibbs. The perfect team and staff were already in a platter, arranged meticulously in Gibbs' 4 year stint with the Redskins. Forcing the team to adjust to another Snyder-created failure regime is plain torture. I won't be surprised if key players like Clinton Portis, Chris Cooley, and London Fletcher are cut because the new head coach won't find them to his liking. Remember the whole fiasco of releasing Stephen Davis because of Steve Spurrier? No matter what you tell me, that shenanigan was most definitely not about the Cap...
But then again... what do you expect from a man that sponsors the washed-out actor Tom Cruise?
First and foremost, though, we are REDSKIN fans. Let's not forget that single and true fact. We must stick together with the Redskins, no matter how bad it gets.
Oh, and Gregg has been replaced by the reputable Greg Blache (we do love our Greg(g)s, don't we?) and Al by Seahawk Jim Zorn.
