Haynesworth might learn a few things about Shanahan from Plummer

If you're wondering just how upset coach Mike Shanahan might be that Albert Haynesworth is apparently vowing to skip all of the Redskins' voluntary offseason activities, you're going to want to check this out.

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

I have to admit at first I didn't AH skipping out was a big deal, but it's obvious now that Shanahan really wants everyone there especially his leaders. I'm starting to see what makes this guy tick, and I like it!

He's not going to let one guy set a tone for the team. Shanahan runs this show and if you don't like it he'll ship your ass out!

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

^^ Yup. In my everyday life, I am just not a fan of hard asses in general. As the coach of my favorite football team, however, I got nooooo problem with it.

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

I think this should also put to bed this silly crap about Snyder still pulling strings. Imagine what he's thinking right now. I just cut a $21M check to AH and he's being shopped?

Shanahan's response?

Damn straight, this is my team.

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

I think more of fact alot of people didnt want to believe it would be a factor. Ive felt he has acted like a damn kid since the last half of the season, but people give him a pass, while crushing peeps like D'Angelo or Los...I dont get it. If your making that amount of money, you need to keep your mouth shut, participate in team activities, dont talk sh*t to the media like a bitch, and be an advocate for the organization. He refuses to do any of this...he has been a major disappointment in the locker room, but great on the field when he is not injuried. And people want to make an arguement for bringing TO here...give me a f*ckin break, I dont want to see TO and Haynesworth in the same locker room together, it could be disasterous...plus for the stats guys, look at TO number the last couple years..horrible. But back to Hanynesworth, Im on the side right now of trading him for a quality O lineman or picks, f him

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

Yay! another Haynesworth thread! The only thing im concerned about now is what he's actually worth in terms of compensation. I think a low first rounder or an equivalent package of picks and/or players.

Also ought to put to bed any talk that CP's price tag is the only thing keeping him here. Allen and Shanahan are going to make this team the way the want it to be. The results will prove them right or wrong.

As for Haynesworth, I think he is smart and listening. It is a culture shock from what the Skins were and what they are now. Most players just have to accept it, Haynesworth will come to terms with it, and then we will go from there. I hope we don't trade him because we would not get anything near his ability back from any possible trade.

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

Good stuff Matty.

I talked to Plummer a couple of years back and the topic of football and Shanahan came up, and let me just say he got pretty damn heated. I don't think there's any love lost there.

This whole thing in a way kind of reminds me of when Marty came in and suddenly cut Larry Centers for not going with the game plan. Keep in mind back then Centers was our offensive stud.

Still think Portis is more likely to go than AH though

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

I like instilling discipline in the team. If you think back to every winning streak of substance that we've had since 2000, it took place under a disciplined coach. Marty got us to finish 8-3 after a 0-5 start. Gibbs had two big finishes to the season to qualify for the playoffs. So I love that Shanahan's got that approach.

But there are a number of things to reconcile here. We can draw comparisons between Haynesworth and Plummer, but the bottom line is Shanahan drafted Cutler at 11th overall, so he already had Plummer's replacement lined up. He doesn't have any semblance of replacement for Albert Haynesworth.

That's why you hear Schefter say we're not actively trying to shop him. The thinking on Haynesworth is likely that, for the right player or package, we'll move him. After all, we did try to move him for McNabb. But since we don't have a remotely adequate replacement at NT, we can't move him unless the package really is that appealing.

Unlike Plummer, it will be hard for us to move Haynesworth for a package good enough to make it worth the massive hole we'll have at the NT position.

Why don't they just make these damn workouts mandatory? Every year we go through this shit with at least a team.

Because they can't per the collective bargaining agreement.

Then coaches need to stop making such big f'ing deal out of it. Basically in any situation it becomes an "unwritten" rule then, and it is annoying and distracting (by both sides, players and coaches).

3. "he has been a major disappointment in the locker room, but great on the field when he is not injuried" I don't care about locker room, all I care about is on field play. I'll take "great on the field all day long!!!!

4.As far as not wanting Haynesworth and T.O. on the same team? Yeah lets not get to much talent on one team! Give me a break! A

5. Trade Haynesworth? "right now of trading him for a quality O lineman" Just because our D is stronger than our O, thats no reason to take away from one to add to another. Thats how you build a mediocre team not a dominate one!

Im for hoping AH comes around and continuing to be a dominate force for the skins!!!
I would love Hanyesworth to show up and act like a proffessional and be a contributing factor all season long. Then just do it??!! Ill take great on the field too that is why I mentioned it. Im not saying he is not a force, he can be dominant, ill give credit where it is do. Yes he can keep his mouth shut and act like everyone should and mostly does, a professional. That is not too much to ask, and IT IS EXPECTED. All these factors do contribute to Haynesworth possibly being let go or traded, Shanny has the rep, the article is a backing piece. If he cant get with the program, then trade him for good/great Olineman and a pick...Haynesworth best use anyway is a 4-3 DT, not anywhere in a 3-4, plus insiders have stated he prefers not to play nosetackle....and TO is old and talent has certainly dwindled, he is not a great player anymore and Bruce Allen is certainly is going to pay him what he wants, tooooooooo bad.

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

I've spent all morning analyzing JR's post and found some of the comments most interesting. A very diversified group of responses. Someone posted the question, where is the PU in all of this, or is this a line they just don't want to cross?
