PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Dan Snyder might be one of the more ridiculed owners in sports. His typically well-financed teams have underachieved significantly, so it stands to reason. But former Redskin and current Steelers defensive back Ryan Clark challenges conventional wisdom.

“He wants to win. A lot of times, he didn’t understand how to win, and he didn’t have the right people underneath him. I think now he does, and he’s going to do everything for that team to be successful,” Clark told 93.7 The Fan’s Joe Starkey on the South Side Thursday.

“I never had a bad experience with him. He wasn’t seen as much as Mr. Rooney. I never had the conversations with him like I’ve had with Mr. Rooney. But when I left, he called me. So I have nothing but solid feelings for him. He treated me with respect.”

Clark still has a lot of vivid memories of his old club, which brings its 3-4 record to take on the 3-3 Steelers at Heinz Field this weekend. He shared them with Starkey, including those of the 2005 ‘Skins, which ended a long playoff drought at the same time his future team was going on a storybook Super Bowl run.
