Loss to Eagles kept Dan Snyder in pajamas through Tuesday night

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder thought his team could beat the Eagles on Monday night.  When the end result was a 59-28 thrashing by their NFC East rivals, Snyder slipped into a funk.

“The next day, I’m in the tank,” Snyder said at a Wednesday evening appearance at the University of Maryland, per Rick Maese of the Washington Post.  “Talked to Mike [Shanahan] last night — I was still in pajamas, so . . . .”

Snyder had more to say about the 31-point defeat, Philly’s biggest victory margin over the Redskins since 1950, when the Eagles swept D.C. 35-3 and 33-0.

“No. 1, it’s embarrassing.  And I felt terrible for all our fans,” Snyder said.  “Monday night, we were jacked up and tailgating was spectacular, team got in a fight before the game back and forth.  I’m like, ‘Okay, we’re going to take them.’  And then that guy [Michael Vick] ran all over the place, threw the ball perfectly and got on us before we knew what hit us.  And occasionally that’s going to happen.”

Right, but the occasions are fewer and farther between for the league’s best teams.  And despite Snyder’s resources and the team’s revenues, he simply can’t put the Redskins among the finest franchises in all of football.

Consider this — in 11 years under Snyder, the Redskins have qualified for the playoffs only three times.  They’ve secured only one division title, way back in 1999.

But, hey, at least they’ve got Donovan McNabb under contract for the next five years.

    If that’s his wife in those NFL commercials I’d be in my pj’s all day long.

    …but he doesn’t feel bad enough to do the right thing and sell the team to someone who is competent.

    Snyder will never get it. Money can’t buy you football smarts.

    Must have had nightmares of Mike Shannahan, coming for all his gold.

    I’ll make sure I never get fired by Dan Snyder.

    I might end up as bitter as Florio there.

  6. blackqbwhiterb says: Nov 18, 2010 3:14 PM

    She is fine………no doubt
    Anyway, yeah with McNabb locked up for 5 years, it’s going to start getting better………….in 6 years

  7. PFTiswhatitis says: Nov 18, 2010 3:17 PM

    You’d think he’d be used to it. In 2007 the Pats put up about as many points on the Skins also.

  8. supafinger says: Nov 18, 2010 3:18 PM

    If he really cared about the Redskins he would sell the team.

  9. worsethingss says: Nov 18, 2010 3:24 PM

    Just because he has the cash doesn’t mean he is going to have a good team

  10. cappa662 says: Nov 18, 2010 3:24 PM

    I would feel in my pjs too. Redskins needed to sign vick and not mcnabb.

  11. Stupid Raiders Fan says: Nov 18, 2010 3:26 PM

    It’s good to see him speaking to the media more. Like him or not he’s a polarizing figure and an interesting one too.

  12. rfoster75 says: Nov 18, 2010 3:27 PM

    yeah Florio, because that’s what we think over here in Redskins land, that we are an elite franchise. We are diehard, some of us homers, but we are not stupid. We are coming off of a 4-12 season. There is plenty of work to be done…

  13. efangule says: Nov 18, 2010 3:30 PM

    Hey Florio… McNabb is locked up for 5 years.. but they only have to keep him for one.. or do you not read the articles you write?

    or the videos you do?

  14. bradshawlives says: Nov 18, 2010 3:38 PM

    The Skins are as embarrassing as Florio’s 3-6 Never-Won-Sh*t Vikings.

  15. andyprough says: Nov 18, 2010 3:40 PM

    Dan hijacked the Rooney Rule to get the washed-up, old white coach he had been lusting after


  16. bradshawlives says: Nov 18, 2010 3:41 PM

    Instead of McNabb they should’ve thrown $20 million at Brett Favre and traded a 3rd round pick for Randy Moss………oh wait………that would’ve gotten them a worse record. Never mind.

  17. patsfan says: Nov 18, 2010 3:48 PM

    so THAT is why Al Davis wore those silly track suits all those years.

  18. floriosphillyfan says: Nov 18, 2010 3:53 PM

    Tom Coughlin is next.

  19. 8dollarbeer says: Nov 18, 2010 3:54 PM

    When Haynesworth is your highest paid defender, and your the dar-dar that made him the highest paid defender in the league. You will suck. Watching his fat ass lay on the ground quitting on his team mon night was a disgrace to say the least. You dont think his teamates see that and say, “he’s making 10 times what I am?” Grow a set of ball Snyder and man up and cut him!!

    Dan Snyder: Bananas in Pajamas.

  21. bobbyhoying says: Nov 18, 2010 4:22 PM

    Maybe he should recruit the GM in Dallas and bring him to Washington. Would that help them go 0 – 16?

  22. brutus9448 says: Nov 18, 2010 4:39 PM

    hiring shanny was your mistake number 1.

  23. baltimoresnativeson says: Nov 18, 2010 4:52 PM

    Well at least the Nationals are…. well the Wizards…..Man DC is horrible.

    So Florio posts an article last night about how the Redskins have McNabb by the balls because they have until the beginning of next season to release him and owe him virtually nothing.

    The next day he posts an article that takes a cheap shot at the Redskins about having McNabb under contract for the next 5 years.

    It must be so much easier to write articles when you don’t worry about things like consistency, truth, accuracy or fairness.

    “Talked to Mike [Shanahan] last night — I was still in pajamas, so . . . .”

    Are Spiderman Underoos really pajamas?

    Way to dig at McNabb while piling on Snyder.

    From an Eagles Fan:


  29. laeaglefan says: Nov 18, 2010 6:36 PM

    They don’t call them the “Deadskins” for nothing! LOL!

  30. bucforever says: Nov 18, 2010 6:41 PM

    Mr Snyder ,
    Thanks for showing us how to buy a winning team. More money spent equals better talent on the field equals better coaches equals more wins. How’s that working out for you so far?
    Glad the Bucs weren”t paying attention.

    @realitypolice who says:

    Pretty much sums up all sports media these days.
