Redskins owner Daniel Snyder
One year removed from an NFC East title and an Offensive Rookie of the Year award for tremendously talented rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Washington Redskins are in an organizational mess.
The NFC East is the weakest it's been in years, but the trade to acquire RG3 has led to a lack of depth and the offensive weapons needed to aid RG3's development.
Owner Daniel Snyder certainly isn't afraid to spend money, however, he has a track record of spending too much money for the wrong players.
The defense needs major work as does the wide receiver position.
