I remember TAFKAS.


RIP, TAFKAS.

What's wrong with Fatal Bert?

I think the nickname is the most logical one ever. I'm surprised Bristol hasn't started using it.

Exactly...that's why SmootSmack was renamed "The Artist Formerly Known as SmootSmack" and then went by "TAFKAS"

(If I talk about myself in the 3rd person but am actually talking about an old screenname of mine...does that mean I'm talking in the 4th person?)

Because it sounds stupid. This reminds me of someone who kept referring Campbell as Jason Candle from the GEICO commercial.

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

On the real though, I am glad 80 plus percent of people on the Path support Shanny.

To be clear, I suppose whatever Shanny wants as I want him to be the clear one in control. So we can trade AH, and no love lost here. But at the same time, voluntary workouts mean nothing to me.

I can't believe we're actually having a discussion about this...what's so logical about calling him Fatal Bert? His name's not Bert, he's not dying, he didn't kill anyone

I love the Candle commercial.

I also love scathing sarcasm.

Yeah I guess I am in April Fools mode still. Well not really, I have given up getting upset at stupid posts. Best way of dealing with them IMO.

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.
How about the fact that they are actively trying to trade him away from the organization after signing him within hours of free agency opening?

How about the fact that they couldn't successfully trade him to another organization? He's on the block right now and no teams are fawning over him like Skins fans are over Brandon Marshall.

Somehow his playing value has diminished from the most highly sought after free agent, deserving $41M gauranteed within hours of free agency, to not tradeable even when you actively try to do so in a salary cap free environment.


Simple fact is that his perceived value around the league doesn't line up with his playing contract. Thus us having a hard time finding a trade partner.

If you think his value hasn't diminished then perhaps you are the only viable trade partner for the Skins.
