After firing Zorn, Snyder embarked on an apology tour of sorts, admitting on E:60 that “I didn’t have a clue what I was doing” as a young owner. After hiring Shanahan in January 2010, Snyder benched himself, bestowing on the coach total control over football operations. The only question was whether the owner could stay on the sidelines. “He’s had to be in the background,” one former team official says. “It must be very frustrating, because he’s always been able to do everything he wants. But the one thing he cares about most, he hasn’t had a winner. And now, to get fans’ confidence back, he’s had to walk away.”
Today, the Washington Redskins joined county officials, labor organizations and business leaders in supporting Question 7, a ballot initiative that would bring thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions in revenue to Maryland. The announcement is the latest in a large and growing coalition of support for Question 7.
Liked how Williams moved to his right on a stretch zone that way and ended up driving end George Johnson into the ground on a three-yard Morris run inside the 10. There were times I wondered how much it affected him. End Michael Bennett nearly got around him on one rush outside and the inability to drive off his right leg as hard could have played a factor. But Williams also got off the ball slightly late and he still recovered. Another time he didn’t reach the linebacker hitting the hole on a three-yard loss – was it because of his leg? And there was one time in which Williams was in space in the middle of the field against a corner and couldn’t react as well as he normally does in those situations. But he blocked down well on Morris’ touchdown and he did not give up a sack or do anything that called attention to himself in a negative way. He battled, as on this fourth-quarter play in which the end tried to rush him inside and looked to have a path, but Williams was able to keep him away from Griffin. Overall, considering how he walked around the facility last week, Williams was remarkable.”>From Washington Examiner
”Redskins coach Mike Shanahan called Sunday Morgan’s best game as a Redskin, and praised Hankerson’s development as well.
But what pleased the coach just as much as the wideouts’ pass-catching ability was their blocking. Both displayed a willingness to get physical with opponents in the run game. Hankerson had a downfield block that helped running back Alfred Morris make it to the end zone on a 39-yard run.
