Snyder Speaks

For the first time in what has seemed like an eternity, Skins owner Dan Synder spoke to the media yesterday about the unfortunate state of the Redskins. Which, any idiot can tell you, he is responsible for. Oh, sweet irony?

Here's the video, via Redskins Insider:

He does seem genuine, but so did Ted Bundy.

Here's the money quote if you didn't feel like sifting through the above clip:

"It really hurts," Snyder said. "We are really trying very, very hard, everyone at Redskins Park, the coaches, the players. The organization is really, quite frankly held up well, and I think we've got an opportunity the rest of the season to hopefully get it going. But to date we've let everyone down, including ourselves, and we know that and we're just apologetic. We've blown some games that obviously we think we should have won."
The organization is really, quite frankly held up well?


1. Vinny Cerrato, Redskins VP of Football Operations, admitted the Redskins needed to address the offensive line in the offseason. Yet, take a look at the Skins draft picks this decade under his "guidance".

2. The team has been known to sue fans who fail to fulfill their season ticket contracts, regardless of life-long loyalty or how dire their financial situation appears.

3. Six head coaches in ten years. Six. In ten years.

4. Miserable stadium atmosphere. But hey, what's $20 for a hot dog and a beer between friends?

5. Signs have been banned from Fedex Field, prompting fans to try this. Also, signs have been banned. From a sporting event. Is there even a precedent for this?!

6. A former assistant coach, out of football for five years, was hired midseason as an offensive consultant. He was calling a bingo game when Snyder drunk texted called him.

7. Playcalling duties were stripped from the head coach and given to said offensive consultant, who had never before had success calling plays at the NFL level.

8. The locker room environment is more uncomfortable than the Obama/Gates/Crowley beer summit.

9. With Chris Cooley out, Fred Davis is now the starting tight end. Yet, oops! Just like the offensive line, he can't block. Tight Ends coach Scott Wachenheim: "We just went through the fundamentals. From stance, steps, hand placement, eye placement -- things you would teach a Pop Warner football player. Just started back at square one and just started building on that." Awesome. Our million dollar second round investment, who never really had a shot at success catching passes anyway, is getting the Pop Warner crash course one week before doubling John Abraham, with Levi Jones or Stephon Heyer no less. Great drafting, guys.

10. A revolution against the front office is in the works.
    So, held together well?

    I'm not quite sure I'd call it that. Trainwrecks are more held together than this crap.


    1. And two days after being demoted Randle El is back to being the main punt returner!! Woohoo!

    2. yet no one admonishes him for banning fans from bringing in signs and Snyder obviously not believing in freedom of speech

    3. hilarious. snyder is literally a bad joke at this point. i wonder if he actually believes what he says and is an idiot, or whether he knows he's lying and is just a douchebag.

      little of column A, little of column B i'm thinking. (little=lot)
