Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

Redskins' Haynesworth critical of teammates after loss

"Urgency, heart, 'want-to,' whatever. I don't know. We're lacking a lot of stuff right now," the defensive tackle said.

For the second consecutive home game at FedEx Field, thousands of spectators headed to the exits early.

"The fans are losing interest. The more games we play, the fewer fans come. It's getting bad," Haynesworth said.

The Redskins are 2-5 despite having opened the season with an NFL-record six consecutive games against winless teams. Washington's two wins were by a combined five points over teams that both are currently 0-7, Tampa Bay and St. Louis.

Asked if he delivered a postgame speech in the locker room, Haynesworth replied: "You can say but so much. You've got to actually 'want to.' So once we get to that point -- where we 'want to' do something -- then we'll do something. But if we just keep going our separate ways, then we'll just keep getting slaughtered like we have."

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

I think I understand what AH is getting at with his comments. The Redskins seem like two separate teams to me. He must feel the same way.

First there is the defense, led by Greg Blache off the field and by Haynesworth and Fletcher on the field. Then there is the offense, led by, well, nobody.

The defense knows exactly who they are and what they are doing and they play hard from the opening kickoff to the (usually) bitter end. The offense has no identity, changes starters on a weekly basis, makes one critical mistake after another, and just seems to be going through the motions.

The defense was tough all the way through to the end against the Eagles. They gave up two big play touchdowns, but 13 of the Eagles 27 points were due to turnovers. They played a very good game overall.

The offense quit. Three and out over and over in the 3rd and 4th quarters and they just casually huddled up and strolled up to the LOS to run plays with the clock running down in the fourth quarter. Again, there is no leadership on the offensive side of the ball, on or off the field!

Well, it's clear that Jim Zorn and Jason Campbell must go at the end of the season. Neither of them has the passion to lead the offense and, after the way they've both been publicly humiliated by Snyder and Cerrato, I'm not even sure they care enough to lead it anymore.

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

Yeah the only reason I was excusing Zorn and Campbell at first on the slowness when we needed to be running more of a hurry up was the new playcalling system, then I find out Zorn took over calls during the "hurry up." Sometimes a 2 min drill runs a bit longer than 2 mins and Zorn hasn't figured that out yet, this isn't the first time we've taken our sweet time during huddles and getting to the LOS.

At least AH is ballin'. I still don't understand people who take shots at him (I guess it's easy because of the $$), the guy is clearly a bright spot for the team this year.

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

Say what you will about Hanesworth, but the guy has helped that DL out greatly! He's been hurt all year 'round, even been carried off the field and still comes back to play each and every week. AH is playing with heart, can't say that about many of the other players.

Absolutely. He's lived up to (and even surpassed) all reasonable expectations of him. I just hope he doesn't let the "dont give a crap" mindset of our offense wear him down.

We need a leader on offense and we need one bad. If Colt hadn't gone to IR, there's no way he wouldnt be starting by now. Not necessarily because he's especially talented, but atleast he's got the attitude. We need a QB who can fire guys up.

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

He's totally right -- most of our players don't "want it" bad enough. There's no enthusiasm. Aristocrat is right, we desperately need a leader on offense. There have been several occasions this season when I'm about to pull my hair out, and the guys on the field are just nonchalant. Many times I've thought, "Somebody get in his face!" Guys need to get pumped up. Guys need to care. You know, somebody whiffs on a block and we take a sack or somebody false starts to put us in 3rd and long, and nobody cares. Somebody needs to be getting in guys faces and making them feel bad. Don't miss that block! Work harder! Get your head in the game and stop committing penalties! Nobody does that.

I don't think we'll have to worry about that. It almost seems that the worse the team gets, the more pissed AH gets and the harder he plays. It's as if he's saying, "don't blame me for this mess, I'm earning my check."

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

I think AH comments were shown on the field when CP throw his helmet in anger on the sidelines... AH was right next to him and did not like this no practice, no off season comfy with the owner player who use to be the face of the offense lose his cool...instead of taking it out on the Iggles!!!! AH has found out that since he makes a big salary off the field you will be ridiculed! So show it and bring it on the field where none of those critics can touch you. CP is no longer the factor back and we need to go to a rotation of runners like the rest of the league. He can still get carries but when the offense depends on him players get comfy with assignments...

Props to AH for showing heart...

Rock's 1 carry was easily the most explosive an RB has looked for the SKins all year....he should get more carries.

I don't understand why Portis continues to be the feature back, he is hurt and not productive...give someone else who is hungry a chance.

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

Haynesworth's reaction makes me feel very happy about our signing of him. Yes, it's an absolutely ridiculous amount of money, but the D-Line and defense as a whole is solid this year. Every team gives up a big play or two to someone who can run a 4.2. it happens, and the offense gave how many turnovers, 4? how many within our 30 yrd line? it was so tough to watch last night.

I love Cooley- 100% but the way Davis got involved last night makes me think with Cooley's broken ankle and season over with, we should look to trade Moss, Portis, and Cooley. between the three of them I bet we can acquire a first, second, and third round pick for this upcoming draft. Yoder can block, Davis can catch.

We won't resign Campbell, and we'll bring in a newly drafted qb with offensive weapons that are young and can grow together for the next 10 years. We have to that side of the ball up, w/o a doubt.

With Haynesworth feeling the lack of anything from his offensive counterparts, it's clear we have a fired up defense that's asking for any bit of help.

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

The skins had so many chances in the 4th quarter but kept bumbling the ball. With like about 7 minutes they were taking their time lining up etc. they needed to play with a sense of urgency which they weren't. Like I said before, maybe Haynesworth needs to bitch slap all our OL into getting some balls and battling it out for a whole game.

Re: Haynesworth says that we don't "want it"

Sure let's bring in Jeff Garcia. That should help a little. JC SUX! Badly. The offense as a whole is really really really bad. No leaderson offense.

Big ups to AH he and the defensive line as a whole is playing good smash mouth football. Maybe we should have those guys play on the OLINE? Haha
