We appear to be at the point where Snyder and/or others in his charge are angry. They'll show Washington. They'll show anybody who doesn't get in line. They'll charge among the highest prices in the league, bring you into the worst gameday pro football experience in America, overcharge you for it, then tell you to enjoy it -- or damn well act like it. Take on Snyder, and Redskins management will take you out.
Me? I'd go to Polian and offer him $30 million to come and run my team, which is a $70 million savings on Albert Haynesworth, who is playing just more than half the plays. Jimmy Johnson knows exactly what he's talking about and Polian knows exactly what he's doing. (And another head coach with a Super Bowl ring recently told Snyder much the same thing.)
Zorn told a roomful of reporters that he spoke briefly with team owner Daniel Snyder following Sunday's loss. "I'll be spending a lot of time with him as we go along this week," Zorn said. "No question."
We make a mistake when we try to impose rational thought on the Washington Redskins management. An old adage says that you can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.
Snyder couldn't get a half dozen candidates to take the job in 2008 before promoting Zorn from recently-hired offensive coordinator. Nothing has changed to make the job any more enticing. Indeed, Snyder's recent moves once more show his impatience that would keep any marquee prospect from coming to Washington. Clearly, Snyder hasn't grown as an owner over 10 years.
