08:08 AM ET 04.27 | Drafts bring hope, and hope springs anew in the nation's capital. For the Washington Redskins, the drafting of quarterback Robert Griffin III on Thursday represents the best hope for stability at the game's most important position. For team owner Daniel Snyder, Griffin offers the potential to rehabilitate a battered public image. ... After more than a decade's worth of head-scratching personnel moves, silly fantasy-football roster management and self-inflicted public relations disasters -- all against a backdrop of also-ran seasons -- Snyder may have finally found the type of game-changer he needs to restore the District's most popular sports franchise.

Danny Boy will do something to screw it all up like decimate the O-Line or receiver corps.

The Redskins could win it all and everyone would still think of Snyder as a jackass.

It is the paying fans that Sndyer needs to restore his image too, not his employees.

And he hasn't taken one step forward in doing so... :(

You'll see Jack Kent Cooke and Tom Landry watching a game from the owner's box before Snyder's image is rehabilitated.

What image? Since when did he ever show competence in owning a football team?

Facts: Since buying the team with borrowed money in 1999 the Snyder owned Redskins are 91-117.

they have had 7 head coaches in those 13 seasons.

He sued his own season ticket holders in 2008. Honest, ya can look it up.

He started a libel lawsuit vs, a local reporter and the paper for, are you ready, "documenting the encyclopedia of errors made by Snyder."

I resubmit, What image does he want restored?

Restore Snyder's image??? This kid better have greater miracles than Tebow.

The best thing Snyder could do to restore his image would be to sell the team. ( and then move to someplace far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far away).

If Jack Kent Cooke hadn't been such a worthless piece of ****, he would have passed the team to his sons and we wouldn't even be having this discussion.

Blasphemy!!

Oh Danny boy, the football field is calling
From yard to yard, and down the gridiron's side
The season's gone, and all the hopes are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
When drafting's done and all the agents free
'Tis I'll be here in FedEx greening meadow
Oh Danny boy, it's on your shoes I'll pee.

It was for calling Cooke worthless. Wasn't happy his sons didn't inherit, but I thought there were inheritance issues involved,
