Old guys brought in from the bingo hall. Fights amongst the players....hmmmmm. Are we finally witnessing the unraveling of the Snyderatto years ?

As we suffer through another season of this organization pissing on our heads and telling us it's raining. The smoke & mirrors approach has lost it's luster. Yes over the last few seasons the F.O. has attempted to tap the draft for talent but it seems to be too little too late.

And what stands at the foundation of this problem is the owners seemingly undying loyalty to a guy who just does not have the stuff to get the job done. The proof is in black & white.

In the last ten years under Cerratto's direction this team has remained basically the same . A mixture of overpaid vets and free agents who look good on paper but that's it. They have done everything to change this perception but look at the people in charge.

One move and probably the best was bringing in Marty but he got rid of Vinnie and ruffled Snyder's feathers. Then the big PR move was the signing of the Ole' Ball Coach Spurrier and that blows up in there faces {and oh by the way Vinnie is back} Then in my opinion another PR move they reach into the past and bring back Gibbs.

Gibbs does what  he can as a Coach brings some stability. But in a GM role he is out of his league and after some personnel blunders ( Lloyd,and that no talent safety) and some in-game slip ups Gibbs realizes this is just too much for him and steps aside.

Now during this time period the roster is neglected to no end the draft is an afterthought. High priced FA are brought in and have more negative effect than anything else.  And whose pulling the strings during this period you know who...

Yes we are told that during Gibbs 2.0 that Gibbs was in charge but think about it Vinnie got just what he needed in Gibbs a guy who would take the blame for the organization {God Bless Him}

But 2009 is a different story there is no big name in to be used as a front man , to fall on his sword for the kingdoms honor. It's Vinnie's face that's out front finally. He is the man. The last two seasons he has nothing to hide behind.

Mr. Snyder if you are the businessman you think you are look at this objectively your customers are disgruntled and frustrated, your product has lost it's luster time to re structure. Time for the franchise saving PR move. Hire someone to go out and find you the best young front office guy there is available.

Have them research the guys who work for the guys.

The right hand men and give them the resources you have made available to Vinnie. Tap the resources of the Patriots, Steelers,Ravens,Colts the ones who have been consistent winners over the past ten years.

Put there drafts beside Vinnie's and compare. It's all there in black & white Mr. Snyder. In ten years Mr Snyder how many NFL starters has he drafted check the numbers.

If the coaches, the players ,the scouts have to shoulder the blame so should the guy they work under. He has ad ten seasons look at the results it's there in BLACK & WHITE .

With next year being uncapped this could be turned around quickly. Purge the contracts of the aging and overpaid. Take a hard look at the entire front office staff. One guy that could be a candidate to take over from Vinnie is Scott Campbell if they want to look in house. Kevin Colbert, Director of Football Operations
Doug Whaley, Pro Personnel Coordinator (Steelers), Kevin Abrams Asst.General Manager (Giants)Pat Moriarty Vice President of Football Administration(Ravens)

These are just a few names Mr. Snyder should take a look at to take his team to the next level.
