Litany of PR guys in NFC East


Peter King breaks down the long list of Redskin’s PR guys, along with the other NFC East’s.

I Hear Dan Snyder Gives One Heck of a Severance Package

With the news that one of the best PR men in the NFL, Zack Bolno, was fired Sunday, three weeks before opening night, by the Redskins, I started to tally up all the media relations people Dan Snyder‘s gone through. Comparing the Redskins PR people to the rest of the NFC East — and, as a probably totally unfair aside, a measure of how the team fared on the field the past decade:

Team PR Czars since 2000 Div. Titles Since 2000
Dallas Rich Dalrymple (1990-present) 2
NY Giants Pat Hanlon (1993-present) 3
Philadelphia Derek Boyko (2000-present) 5
Washington John Maroon (Early 2000) 0
Doug Green (2000 season)
Michelle Tessier (2001-03)
Pat Wixted (2004-05)
Chris Helein (2005-06)
Zack Bolno (2007-10)
Tony Wyllie (2010-present)

PR guys don’t win games. But PR guys in the NFL cannot and never have been able to put lipstick on pigs. Bolno cannot make the Washington Post and LaVar Arrington write and say nice things about a team that’s gone 70-90 in the past 10 years and spent money on a multitude of the wrong players.
