Incomes Spurrier,he like the other 2 coaches is ASKED what he needs to succeed.Unlike Gibbs he has no clue what it takes at this level.So he and our team are clueless for 2 years.Snyder gives Spurrier everything he thinks he needs and wants.After the 2nd season he flys to a nice florida golf course hides in a bush and phones in his resignation.
Enter Joe Gibbs
Snyder asks and delivers what Gibbs needs.
Since the 2003 season there are 15 players left from spurriers last roster.
QB PATRICK RAMSEY
RB LADELL BETTS
RB ROCK CARTWRIGHT
WR TAYLOR JACOBS
OT JON JANSEN
OG RANDY THOMAS
OG DERRICK DOCKERY-TENDERED
OT CHRIS SAMUELS
LS ETHAN ALBRIGHT
DE RENALDO WYNN
DT NIC CLEMONS
LB LEMMAR MARSHALL
LB CHRIS CLEMONS -TENDERED
CB ABE JIMOH -TENDERED
K JEFF HALL
3 are tendered FAs and could be else where.Ramsey,Taylor and Hall are rumored to be gone so more than likely there will be 12 players left from 2003 if we resign the 3 tenders.
Irresponsible? Not hardly.Gibbs is molding this team to his type of players.Funny thing about this cap hell they have been in,Snyder is still able to get what his coach needs and what we want..........A WINNER
Thanks for the reality check to all Haters out there.
Truth is we lost the following: Clark, Royal two starters who could be IMMEDIATLEY replaced with UPGRADES for better quality, commitment to long term and play making ability.
WE RELEASED players who had absolutely no major role on the Skins during the Skins tenure of the past 4 years, and would also offer the same for the next 4.
How that equates to getting rid of superior players, is beyond me.
I like your post and wish it was on the front page of the HR site.That way, instant Rumor zapping on the haters remarks, and takes the air out of us BASHING our players and screwing up their careers. ONLY people that like Peter King are fans of the same team he really likes and folks who don't keep up with football, but want to learn, wives, first time lovers of football, feminine men converting over to hardcore (geez that sounds like, never mind, but that's what happens when you think of PK) and folks who are on tour/travel in town for business, thinking they can fit in with football knowledge for each stop and a beer.
