Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay says ‘there’s merit to remove’ Daniel Snyder as Washington Commanders owner
The Washington Commanders have had no coach since their Super Bowl 50 championship win against the New Orleans Saints, but Irsay seems confident they have the right man to be the new head man.
“I think there’s merit to removing Dan Snyder,” Irsay said.

“Our players, our coaches and our fans know me as a person that puts winning first. That’s the kind of owner I am and that’s where the
