Michael Silver of Sports Illustrated came out with a bizarre list today of the best NFL owners that has Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder at #5.

Number 5, people!!!! That's ahead of #6 Jeffrey Lurie (Eagles), #9 Dan Rooney (Steelers), #10 Pat Bowlen (Broncos) and #11 Jim Irsay (Colts), just to name a few.

This is almost as atrocious as Kevin McHale being named the best GM in sports by Forbes.

Here are a couple choice clips to exemplify the absurdity of this ranking:

"Snyder's zealous mentality also enables Gibbs and VP of football operations Vinny Cerrato to overpay for free agents like Adam Archuleta, Antwaan Randle El and Brandon Lloyd..."

Ummm, aren't we forgetting a couple people here, i.e. Jeff George, Deion Sanders, Mark Carrier, Bruce Smith, Jeremiah Trotter, Jessie Armstead and Andre Carter (although I have to admit, I'm still crazy enough to believe Carter could turn it around this year)?

"But hey, at least he's trying."

Let me remind Silver something real quick.... "You PLAYYYYYYY to WIN the game!"

"Snyder will get it right eventually..."

He's owned the team for almost 10 years (purchased in May 1999). How much time does the man need???

"And he is pulling in an enormous profit in the meantime, thanks to his innovative marketing strategies."

Oh yeah, we can't thank Snyder enough for jacking the prices up every year. How does being a greedy bastard make you a good owner again? This guy charged fans for training camp!!!!!
