Snyder Has High Expectations

On the first day of Washington Redskins training camp, team owner Daniel Snyder said his goals are to win the NFC East this season and improve significantly on offense in Coach Jim Zorn's second season with the club.

"They understand each other," Snyder said of Zorn and his staff during an appearance on WTEM-980's "John Thompson Show." "They understand, also, the players. They understand the positions.

"I think what I'm looking for is some dramatic improvement on offense. I want to get better on defense. We were very effective. If we can get turnovers, if we can do some things that we didn't do enough of, we can take that 8-8 performance to a much higher level, and that's what we're looking for.

"We obviously want to win the division, and it starts there. We're in a real tough division. It's exciting. It's fun and challenging. I think we'll get the job done."

Snyder's appearance on the station he owns occurred between the Redskins' morning and afternoon practice sessions Thursday at Redskins Park.

During the nearly nine-minute interview with Thompson and former Redskin Rick "Doc" Walker, he also addressed the situation of quarterback Jason Campbell, whose position appeared in jeopardy during the offseason as the Redskins pursued a trade for then-Denver quarterback Jay Cutler and considered trading up in the draft to select USC's Mark Sanchez.

"I think to Jason's credit, he's really showed his true character, and I think he's really matured with the team and taken the reins, which is really what we've asked him to do," Snyder said. "From the standpoint of where we go, he's a critical, critical component, and we've told him that. We've told him that, look, we need some big-time play out of the quarterback to really go where we want to go, which is [the] Super Bowl. From that standpoint, we're real pleased with the offseason handling by Jason."

Snyder added free agent quarterback Michael Vick, just conditionally reinstated by the NFL after serving time in prison, is "not a fit here." He also said he thought the team was "real close" to signing first-round draft pick Brian Orakpo on Wednesday night, but the deal did not get done, and he expressed an urgency to get the defensive end/linebacker into camp soon.

"I think that sometimes an agent may actually give him bad advice by saying, 'Hey look, let's try to get two percent more,' and they ruin his first year," Snyder said. "I think it's important in the next few days that he gets in here."

Snyder, who is entering his 11th year as owner, said he has "matured" in the position.
"I'm more patient now," Snyder said. "When it comes down to understanding the game and understanding the business side of it, it takes time. It takes some time for the players to mature into their role. Sometimes, when you're over-aggressive, you make mistakes. . . .

"Everyone wants instant results. We all do. We all want [second-year receivers] Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas to be rookies of the year and go to the Pro Bowl right away, but from the standpoint of understanding it as I do now, I know that that position takes a little bit of time, and I think that you'll start to see the fruits this year and next year and the year after. I think you'll start to see some big-time development, and that's something that you learn."

This would have been more interesting had Snyder had low expectations for the season. "We're just trying to get by," he might have said. "I really don't expect much for my money. If I get too depressed, I can ride the Batman Batwing. That always perks me up."

"Actually," Snyder may have confessed, "I'd really like a chance to own the Steelers. Think of all the really expensive free agents I'd sign."

I love how he's willing to give Kelly and Thomas 4 years to "see the fruits", but in 2 1/2 years and 3 offenses Jason Campbell can't get shoved out of town fast enough. We'll see how much patience he has with them if Randy Moss or Calvin Johnson becomes available in the next year or two.

I couldn't care less about this crap he just spewed. I'll believe Snyder when I see the actions (or inaction) match the words, instead of spoon feeding us what we want to hear.

"Bears, Raiders, Titans Not Interested in Vick"

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: July 30, 2009

Bears, Raiders, Lions, Tigers...oh my!

The list of NFL teams who aren't interested in Mike Vick grows.

Again: Vick should shuffle off to the Great White North, and get some gridiron cred by playing the remainder of the CFL season with some team that would be more than happy to give him a shot.

As for this blogga, I suggest we wrap our collective minds around on the guys on the redskins' roster.

As for Mike Vick--his case is closed.

Dan Snyder getting a "little more patience" is like taking a leak in the ocean: no one is going to know the difference. What the guy needs is a LOT more patience and maybe just a tad more humility. BUT... I'll give him credit for questioning his own judgement. It shows he is not completely un-trainable. Maybe in another ten years we'll have a pretty decent owner.

from Redskins.com:

"Malcolm Kelly lost about six pounds pounds from his 6-4 frame. He deemed it necessary so that the extra weight would not put any strain on his oft-injured left knee.

"Once I took that weight off, I was moving a lot easier and a lot better," Kelly said. "I wasn’t putting as much pressure on my leg."

On his second NFL season, Kelly said: "I came out here with the same attitude I had last year--to get into the starting rotation. That has to be your attitude. But this year I have done more things to help my body, from dieting to the strengthening program.

"You can go out there and play, but if you don’t get your body right, it’s no good."

"Can you describe to me what constitutes a "good fart"?

A good fart is one when used strategically allows you to rid yourself of the company of people you'd prefer not to be around.

A better fart occurs in the privacy of your SUV/car/bathroom when it seems so bad you're amazed by the brimstone cloud of funk your colon is able to eek out of whatever dinner was.

A woman who stays with you when you release a fart is one you should marry right away.

Finally, there is no truth to the urban legend that a lighted match will cause flames to shoot from one's backside while issuing a fart: this was learned after multiple attempts while in college and a marriage where a woman didn't mind that I farted.

Snyder "I think what I'm looking for is some dramatic improvement on offense."

So tell me, Danny, what steps did you take that would suggest dramatic improvement?

Was it in the draft? No
You drafted zero offensive players in rounds 1-6.

Was it in FA? Not much
You replaced 1 OL, Kendall, who was among your best and healthiest OL last year. You replaced him with a younger guy -- who was the worst in the league in giving up sacks at his position.

What about your QB? Hah!!
You did just about everything you could to undermine the guy.

Anything else? Nothing "dramatic"
Roydell Williams, a nice upgrade. Added a bunch of guys who've never been very good to play RT. Say a prayer or two. Your RG had a ruptured disk in his neck -- did you get a backup for him? Or a replacement? Say another prayer.

Snyder can look for dramatic improvement on offense. He just doesn't have a good reason to expect it because he didn't do much to improve the offense.

What's that saying? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Of course, for Snyder, that would mean trading for a Brandon Lloyd or TJ Duckett, or signing a Randle El, or drafting 3 pass-catching rookies in one sitting, or changing the offensive coordinator after one season.

Clearly that's all worked to perfection.

So...maybe it's not so unreasonable for him to expect different results.
