Re: Schefter: "Skins NOT shopping Big Al"

What about if Al decides to give back some of the $21 million back as part of a trade to a team that plays a 4-3 defense? If he's that disgruntled as reported, then he just might do it to get out of the situation.

Boz is a heavyweight when it comes to sports related statistical analysis.

I guess Boz is as misguided as most of us on the Warpath...

For 26 million returned, he can become a free agent again. I don't see it happening. He isn't getting another mega deal like this.

I'm not saying the whole $21 Million. How about $7 Million or a 1/3.

CRedskins posted that GTripp was crying somewhere softly. In an off topic thought about GTripp's anti-McNabb position I was saying that I wonder what he would say about Boz's recent article.

Boz is a numbers cruncher like GTripp as well.

I won't speculate on what they would want back. Kevin Sheehan mentioned on his show that Big Al can effectively buy free agency status for $26 million.

This speaks volumes. Although not a great source they sum it up well...

Gotcha and thanks... I had somehow forgotten how opposed GTripp was to the deal. maybe he'll come around sooner or later.

Re: Schefter: "Skins NOT shopping Big Al"

According to another PFT article, Haynesworth is only owed 16MM with 9MM garaunteed over the next 3 years. That is a STEAL of a deal for a 4-3 team. My guess is that we are trying to get our trading partner and/or Haynesworth to pay us back some of that money as part of the trade. Essentially, we're giving him the Lavar treatment. I'm pretty sure that whatever Haynesworth had to pay back to us, his new team would pay him as part of his new deal.

Re: Schefter: "Skins NOT shopping Big Al"

When the game in the trenches turns into a war, I want Haynesworth or someone of his size, skill and demeanor on both of our lines.
Giants game when Brandon Jacobs and T William Beatty abused Deagelo Hall, Haynesworth rightfully went to defend his outmatched teammate.
We need more guys like this on both of our lines.
YouTube - Giants fight

The refs blew the call on that one.

"The source said Haynesworth is, and will continue to be, the Redskins' starting nose tackle."

Washington Redskins source: Albert Haynesworth is our starting defensive tackle - ESPN

Putting pressure on Big Al or being honest?

So basically we picked up Kemoeatu for nothing. Hmm.

For his talent level, it is a steal but it seems to me that the biggest question mark on Godzilla is his work ethic and presence in the locker room. When he left the Titans there were already red flags and Washington trying to move him after one year doesn't help his cause. So now they want money back on top of draft picks? To me that adds a very intriguing "layer" to all of this. Because asking for money back is essentially just a move to save face. So what dollar amount makes it acceptable to the team? Next, what draft pick or picks is adequate compensation? Then, if you add in the fact that Detroit and Tampa Bay are potential suitors but trading Al to them might allow them to skip over Suh and McCoy and then take the guy we want (Okung for example) it gets even more interesting.

Moving Al is getting more complicated by the minute. The more complicated it is, the less likely it happens IMO.

Re: Schefter: "Skins NOT shopping Big Al"

Can we ban people who use "z" instead of "s" in their user name? Few things irk me more than that (ArtMonkDrillz being the exception- we should change his to an "s").
