Haynesworth has been flagged twice for defending Hall. He's got that nasty attitude and shows loyalty to his teammates. I love it.
We played our best games of the year w/out Haynesworth. He is obviously a beast & can beat anybody WHEN he's in the game. During that opening drive, he was on the sidelines when the g men were inside the 5. The guy just can't be counted on for much.

I really wonder if he has caused the D to regress overall. Think about this, you're playing hard every play making 1/10 of what he does, yet he comes out of the game about any time he's tired or 'nicked up.' Then he's got the audacity to say he's not being used right!

That's the reason some teams simply don't sign big name free agents, there is a chemistry transition. Look at every year the Skins have made a big splash in free agency, 00, 03, 06, 09. It hasn't turned out well that season. The only exception is maybe the D in 04.

Hopefully, next year AH becomes part of the team more. He really looks like an independent contractor right now. (I will give him props for sticking up for Hall, but isn't that ironic, he sticks up twice for the dude that also got a big contract. I don't think anyone else is sticking up for Hall.)

Yeah I guess it did make Zorn look stupid but how many times can a man get shit on before he cracks?

that was my initial reaction to but then i considered it in the context that zorn already tried this with success twice before this year with hunter smith so this decision was not exactly against zorn's MO.

watching those guys all swing out outisde the numbers was funny at that point. the crowd cheered. then they did it again after the TO i almost lost it laughing at us. just sad all around.

We would he do it to make Synder look bad, only he looked bad.

1. Thats a GROSS Exaggeration.
2. The dude weighs 350 pounds. There's no way he can go full speed every snap. Statistically, when he's active, he's on the field more than any other defensive player except andre carter. DL players are rotated in and out constantly on every team in the NFL. Since they're generally much bigger guys, its necessary to keep them fresh. You just don't notice it as much on other teams because the cameras don't follow their every move as they do with haynesworth.

I won't say that Haynesworth has necessarily exceeded my expectations, but he's certainly met them. He's one of the few big-contract guys this team has signed in recent memory who's actually worth every penny.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Giants)

Is there an explanation somewhere of exactly what they were trying to do with the swinging gate play?

I've watched it a dozen times now and still have no idea what the aim was.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Giants)

The giants team came in completely prepared; the redskins team was far from ready. This is the coaches' fault. The lack of execution from the players didn't help though.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Giants)

Not really trying to defend the redskins' performance last night, but I think there were too many distractions during the week (especially for the coaches).

There's not really any other way to explain how it went so bad so quickly from the last few weeks of playing well to the game last night.
