Dan Steinberg of the DC Sports Bog chronicled a piece that revolved around Dan Snyder’s claims that he was never involved with football matters when Joe Gibbs was here.
“You know what’s interesting is there’s a little bit of a misperception here. When Joe Gibbs was here for over four seasons, nobody came to talk to me about football, and the same thing now. It was very similar between Mike Shanahan and Joe Gibbs, that they take command of the football team, and I love that. I mean, for me it’s easy. I don’t want to be involved. ”
However when Gibbs spoke on the business he said this, in an interview in 2007:
“The three of us [Gibbs, Snyder and Cerrato] normally at the end of it try and come up with a final game plan for the draft….Dan’s philosophy is to be aggressive. We fall in the category of being more aggressive and it’s based on Dan being as aggressive as he is.”
It seems he has always been involved, and will be involved. He has the right, he owns the team. But time will tell when the amount of involvement he is in that dictates the true course he is guiding this team in.
