Hat Tip: Extreme Skins
The Washington Examiner says the Redskins are at risk of having "Too Many Chiefs" as one clever NFC GM puts it. No one has ever used this clever play on the popular saying "Too many chefs" before. Because the Redskins are Native Americans, get it? Chefs -> Chiefs? Awesome. This is why I wish we had a GM.
Let's get those pesky "facts" out of the way:
But the constants have been Snyder and vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato (save for the 2001 draft).
One thing to remember: Denver has had 57 draft picks since 2000. Though their retention percentage is lower than the Redskins, they've actually had more drafted players remain with the team than the Redskins, though it's pretty damn close. I would offer the Broncos as evidence that a team can succeed in spite of wasting many of its draft picks due to great coaching. Then again, we shouldn't discount that the Broncos have succeeded in large part by fleecing the Washington Redskins in trades. They're what you would call an "aggressive" Free Agency team in that when we phone them, people fight over who takes the call.
