Six weeks into the 2009 season the Washington Redskins are a bad team. So many things seem wrong it’s hard to know where to put the bulk of the blame, personnel-wise. But it’s clear that the offense is worse than the defense. And, it's obvious the problems flow from the top down.
Ten years into the Dan Snyder era, he bought the franchise from Jack Kent Cooke’s estate in 1999, and it’s easy to see that Snyder remains the biggest problem the Redskins have. Maybe the biggest problem with The Danny is that he keeps making the same mistakes, but he seems to expect different results, anyway.
My prediction is that Snyder will fire Jim Zorn during the halftime of a game, then will install a new head coach for the second half. Wouldn’t that set some kind of new record? It might even make Cowboys owner Jerry Jones jealous, because Snyder will have one-upped him on the audacity scale.
Meanwhile, only to make matters worse, the Virginia Public Access Project reports that Snyder has donated $50,000 to Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell. He did it in the name of the Washington Redskins.
