Now that the Redskins have officially fired Head Coach Mike Shanahan and his staff, team owner Dan Snyder has released a statement per PFT:
“Redskins fans deserve a better result,” owner Daniel Snyder said in a team-issued release. “We thank Mike for his efforts on behalf of the Redskins. We will focus on what it takes to build a winning team, and my pledge to this organization and to this community is to continue to commit the resources and talent necessary to put this team back in the playoffs.”
I am sure Redskins fans would argue that Snyder is way up there on the list of things they deserve better of. I do like the like about committing resources to winning though because that has never been the problem. The problem has been meddling ownership.
You can’t fire the owner though.
