Re: In defense of Albert Haynesworth

Im actually glad that we have a guy that isnt always taking the high road and saying the "right" things all the time. He isnt afraid to call people out. I really think that he is refreshing and is going to force other players into playing with heart. The money, as of yet doesnt seem like it has effected his desire to dominate. I think he is just nasty and wants not just to win but to make you feel pain. Hopefully the new regime will allow AH to be himself. He will lift the rest of the team up and the lazy and half hearted will be exposed!

HTTR!!!!

Guess what; he's right!

This deserves a bump

I agree, he admitted himself he spoke out of frustration, I share in his frustration as well. Some people just love to complain.

Re: In defense of Albert Haynesworth

I'd take an entire team of AHs in terms of attitude. Look the guy has no motive to bitch that isn't pure. He's got his contract. He doesn't like to lose. And apparently he feels like, surprise surprise, Blache has again subverted a player's abilities in the name of his f*cking scheme. At least he cares abput the damn team. It's better than listening to the likes of Rock Cartwright and Carlos Rogers constantly bitching about playing time or disrespect from the coaches.

The problem is for every good play he makes he then takes the next 4-5 plays off.

Most DL rotate because when they're in you want 100%. AH is no different. I'd rather have him play less snaps per game and be able to go 100% during those snaps.
Not true. He was rarely double teamed last night. He just needs to get in better shape. He got over on us this year so it's done. Now next year no excuses. I want this guy coming in lean and mean and ready to dominate.

Re: In defense of Albert Haynesworth

yes let's get rid of one of the few players on our team that seems to be truly pissed off by all our losses and the manner we're losing them in......... It's not like Big Al came out and said he couldnt care any less about this season because he's making his money. He's been vocal about things that in general we as fans have been vocal about!

Did anyone else think of this, when they read the above post?

i'm not sure which thread it was in but ss listed ah's playing % and he was right at or above 75%, they rotate d lineman in alot in thei d scheme we have right now, and after watching it more closely i would say ah plays more snaps than any other d line man on our team

but as far as him getting his way and doing what he wants with no discipline that is all on danny boy and hopefully with some new head guys in here next year with back bone and a sack, that won't happen

Re: In defense of Albert Haynesworth

All this BS speculation is useless. We have (hopefully) a new and competant Defensive staff coming in as well as offensive. It is incumbent upon........competant coaches to....do that coaching shit, like:
maintaining unity and the TEAM first vision
positive unified front to the media
assuring adequate game preparation
promote and demand a fitness level suitable for success
etc, etc...........its they're job

The guy has spoken out saying that he's being held back from playing harder. If you don't recall the defense that you hate, lead by Blache, often uses the D-Line to occupy linemen in order to let the LBs make the play. Haynesworth wants to rush more.. how are you going to blame the man? Should he play out of scheme and get benched like Lavar?

Wasn't his contract greatly front-loaded and that other 57mil or so mostly unattainable money?

Tony Dungy predicted this back when the season started. He said it was known around the league that if things went bad for the team AH would begin complaining as the season wound to a close. Looks like he was right.
