Live and learn....
And I don't think my opinion was "feeble". I didn't imply that anyone needs to scream like a drill instructor or kick someones butt. What I like seeing is someone who has some fire in his gut and stands up for his team, instead of a bunch of prima donnas playing just hard enough to collect a paycheck, and some not even playing THAT hard and are STILL collecting a fat paycheck (Hint, one of them is "I don't do preseason", second hint, intials CP)
You had me at "I don't do preseason" : )

What about coaches who let themselves be made a fool of so they can secure their paycheck for the year...lol. Both that reason and the fact that we're even uttering AH's name shows wherein lies the competitive problems our franchise has suffered.

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

Like the majority of posters I am siding with Shanahan here, if for no other reason than to support in the broadest terms the general change in discipline and atmosphere at Redskins Park that, needed for so long, Shanahan's arrival appears to be precipitating.

BUT, for some reason there exists a tendency amongst Redskins fans to severely underrate the impact that Haynesworth had on this team last season. Yes, he appeared to get injured several times a game, he huffed and puffed and didn't always seem in optimum shape, and he certainly came off poorly when criticizing Blache's defensive scheme in the media, in particularly uncharitable terms. Nevertheless, when on the field and firing on all cylinders he was every bit the disruptive, menacing force we paid for. It's not a coincidence that Carter and Orakpo both hit double-digit sacks for the year, Carter resurrecting a career that had seemed on the wrong side of done only a season prior.

AH might not be a guy I would choose to have a beer with; and in the end, he might not be a guy the new regime feels it can work with. Fine. But what is so headscratching is the perception - perpetuated by both the media and fans - that he was a bust for us last season. Albert played like one of the best DT's in the league last year.

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

^^ It's a nickname of a nickname (FatAl Bert) that bears no relation to anything. Yes. I too vote "Most Moronic Nickname"

It's like renaming SmootSmack "The Administrator Formerly Known As Smootsmack" and then calling him by the acronym "TAFKAS".

Good post: There are some people in this area who feel the whole Haynesworth situation could have been handled in a way that could have brought about a much better end result.

When you couple the true facts with all the erroneous media reports, it's not difficult to understand why there has been so many varying opinions. Has Haynesworth's attitude in reference to this whole ordeal been less than desireable (maybe) but there's no one side that should be destined to accept all the blame. There could have been just a little more give and take on the part of both parties and the situation could have turned out much different.

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

Very good two part article on AH. In the 2nd part he talks some about last year, and about the 3-4, and what he and Haslett have talked about. It's not earth shattering, but it is the most cohesive take on AH's point of view I have seen.

Nice read

Beyond the Athlete: Albert Haynesworth Part*II - Beyond The Athlete - Back Sports Page

ďI think itís going to be exciting. Heís a very experienced coach, he knows how to win and he knows how to build a team. Iím excited about it. Iím glad heís our coach. He was definitely the best one out there. Iím just ready to get back to work and see what he brings to the table.Ē

ďThe players, I think we have the pieces there. We just need a puzzle master to put it together. I donít think we need a whole lot more changes. Maybe a couple more tweaks here and there. Right now Iím satisfied with the talent that we have.Ē

"I talked to Jim Haslett and he plans on using me like they did with the Titans. Heís talked to a couple of Titans coaches and former Titans coaches and thatís what he said heís planning on doing. Just kind of letting me loose and letting me play the game.Ē

ďAt first I was a little iffy to it because Iíve never played in the 3-4. I donít have a clue to how itís really played. But then I talked to him a little bit and he plans on just playing me in the middle a little bit and at end. I guess Iíll just move around and just wreak havoc; so as long as weíre doing that and Iím not just at one position, Iím fine, Iím fine with it.Ē

This all sounds quite familiar (Schefter: "Skins NOT shopping Big Al")

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

nice to hear that. I hope its true. But I disagree about having all the pieces, not that he is gonna say, "we dont have the personnel to implement the system." tho........

Did Extreme Skins just have a membership purge or a mass banning? Seem to be several non level headed posters joining recently.

Thanks for posting...The combined articles do not have the man sounding anything like the various reports have attempted to make him out to be. He sounds like a man on a mission with his own idea about how to accomplish it. Good read.

Does it even qualify as a nickname if it doesn't make any sense?
