I want to like this post. I really do. And not that I'm questioning you, but can you throw out a few examples of "bad teams/organizations tend(ing) to pin their failures on their best players." ??

I vote Dirtbag for best use of a search engine!

Good stuff, man and in all honesty if Haynesworth comes in and performs this season this will all be moot, I dont see why we have to discuss it like someone is cheating on someone in every thread. Hopefully this will put some sort of damper on the "trade him now" talk.

The most immediate examples I'm coming up with are actually in other sports: Cubs blamed Milton Bradley for their failures last year, Royals blamed Alex Gordon, the Suns were trying to deal Amari Stoudamire for the longest time.

I guess some examples of this happening in football would be what the Jags did w/Byron Leftwich, the Lions did with Shaun Rogers, the Broncos with anything they've done in the past two years, the Jets with Chad Pennington and John Abraham before him, Cowboys (fans) with Tony Romo, the Bills with Trent Edwards, the Eagles with Terrell Owens, the Cardinals with Thomas Jones, three different teams with Kurt Warner, and really, the Redskins with every quarterback of the last decade.

I don't really like any of my football examples because they all have dual reasoning, but I think a big reason is that if you're a productive player on a dysfunctional team, it's easy to just blame the most publicized players than to quietly address what's actually wrong. I think if Shanahan and Allen are going to be successful, the first thing they have to do is refrain from alienating our best players. Which is why this Haynesworth thing, while completely overblown by the media, really doesn't make a lick of sense.

Getting a 2nd round draft pick for him? Haven't you heard it was never the intent to trade him?

I really don't care about AH and his trainer. I mean who really cares? Just show up at training camp ready to ball. How you get in shape is really on him. These videos don't mean dick.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

My only issue with this is that tripp, Haynesworth's trainer came to Albert to train him in Tenn. Why couldn't he do the same here in Washington and have Tripp work with our trainers to show them he doing and intergrate some things that our staff suggest into Albert's workout.

I doubt the team would go for that. Players tend to either work out on their own, or with the team. Bringing in a personal trainer to work with team trainers would probably only create a conflict of interest and serve as a distraction.

I would just be content if the people who started the trade talk would fess-up and reveal who within the organization said we were going to trade Albert from the beginning. If the trade rumors were actually true, that information had to come from someone...Who is that someone? The HC & GM have continued to emphatically deny, it obviously comes down to who you choose to believe.

This morning I tuned in to ESPN980 to hear their post draft coverage. Instead I got Kevin Sheehan and Andy Pollin bitching and whining about Haynesworth. I swear, I am done with those guys. It's like, get the f'ck over it already. How 'bout you actually talk about the draft and the players we got? I can understand fans bitching about something they don't know much about, but sheesh, it's just getting very tired to hear the same shit over and over again.

Me personally, most of us have to be at work Mon. through Fri. around 50 weeks a yr. Not counting sick days, holidays, and only counting for 2 weeks vacation. Most of us make a lot less then Haynesworth or any other NFL player. I see no problem with teams expecting their players to be at the facility just as much as any given employee. So I kinda get upset when players get their feathers ruffled about having to be at the facility. I don't think they actually know how good their life is.

Having said that, as of right now they are not required by the NFL to be at their facilities. It's not called "Voluntary" work outs for nothing. Lets move on from this story. AH shows up fat and slow the team will have issues, he shows up in decent shape and only has to learn the scheme, then I'm ok with it.

You must have just caught them when they were talking about Haynesworth. They talked about the draft quite a bit.

The first paragraph comes off as a jealously laced diatribe. The clubs agreed to those rules. Don't like it, "tough", I'm sorry to say there's really nothing you can do short of starting some sort of national NFL boycott. Good luck.

Where has it ever been said that his feathers have been ruffled? It seems to me that the only ruffled feathers are found on all these drama queen fans who are out for blood.

He is fulfilling his commitments and he has said from the beginning that all he wants to be is the best. If him training with his personal trainer gets him there, then Godspeed, Big Al.
