Redskins Insider/Outsider actually did some work and had a conversation with Mark Sanchez, speaking about his visit with the Redskins.
"It felt like USC -- a very tight-knit family, like more than a team. They're a family. It's tough to figure that out on such a short visit, but it was obvious. It was great area, very beautiful. We drove by Georgetown. It was so nice. It was an unbelievable visit."
"All of it was awesome, and I had a great time with every team. Every time you walked through a locker room it was like, 'Man, I can see myself here.' But all I can say is I had a blast with the Redskins, and I felt at home there and I felt great about being there, and obviously I would wear their colors. I love their colors."
Not sure if Sanchez told Snyder exactly how he felt about becoming a Redskin, but if Snyder knows or finds out how Sanchez feels about coming here then I think it's pretty much a done deal, but that's IMHO. Who knows, maybe the Redskins are actually turning the corner and this is a bluff so the Redskins could get some more draft picks. However, the Redskins would most certainly have me fooled because it's starting to seem more and more likely that we trade up to get this guy.
You have to respect the fact that Snyder wants to win and is willing to do almost anything to do so, but the fact remains that he isn't going about this process the correct way. Why couldn't Snyder use his money wisely and get Scott Pioli?
I guess Snyder hasn't changed as much as we may have thought during last offseason. We all have to realize that our owner could be Al Davis instead of Snyder. Granted, it's not a huge difference between them but that's what gets me through all of this.
