I agree with you to a certain extent, but the culture at Redskins Park was in need of a serious overhaul. I'm not for "sending a message" every offseason, but I do think Shanahan has every right to lay down the law. The culture of player entitlement and me-first has got to go if we ever hope to be real contenders.

The culture that really needs to be changed is the culture of change. The more things change the more they stay the same.

There's been a culture of change, because real deep rooted change has never happened. In recent years it was like a stupid man changing his attire only to look smart. Hopefully this time it means that same man has hired a pair of tutors that will help him get smarter lol

Re: Haynesworth might learn a few things about Shanahan from Plummer

I am disgruntled with Albert. I mean he is getting a Boatload of Money here, just keep quiet, and do whatever the coaches want.

I am not really upset with Shanahan, but just wish this was handled differently by the Front Office and Coaching Staff as well. If the coaches told Haynesworth that he would be used as a 3-4 blocker eating NT, then I can see some of his frustration. The man is getting paid to make plays, so put him in position to make plays.

It's a tough situation to get a read on. I like Coach Shan and Al, it seems like 2 stubborn men who won't give ground for compromise. And basically the whole team and fanbase has to suffer.

I still havent heard anything about AH making any comments, I know the last thing he did was sit and talk to Shanny and explained to him his off season plans and Shanny agreed. This is still optional work outs.

Even if AH showed up for camp, I'd still want to trade hiim for whatever I could get. I just don't like prima donnas...it's not the Redskins way. Last year I think we should've cut Clinton just to make a point. I'm sorry he's a Redskin and we didn't get to see Champ Bailey here (plus the number 2 pick we sent to Denver for CP).

@Adam_Schefter RT @bgizle: haynesworth considered a big trade? ... I will tell you what two Redskins people told me: "He is NOT getting traded."

I wouldn't trade him, I'd be determined to get a return on my investment that I'm not going to get in trade.

The $32 million already paid out is a sunk cost so in a sense it shouldn't make any difference in the decision to keep/trade Al. But I'm not advocating a trade...far from it. I believe you keep him because at his best he's the best there is, period. Reason enough IMO to build a defense around the guy. Shanahan/Haslett/Allen are making their first enormous mistake as the new regime. For Haslett it's likely the only big mistake, because after a lousy defensive year Shanny will go looking for something different.
