More Haynesworth Drama? Big Al Sounds Off After Ravens Game

I've locked the other Haynesworth threads and we're going to start with a fresh one. Let's all try to act a bit more civil toward each other on this one

Albert Haynesworth took his most defiant stand yet against Mike Shanahan on Saturday night, saying the Washington Redskins coach underplayed the two-time All-Pro's medical condition in recent days and that he intends to boycott next year's offseason conditioning program as well.

The Associated Press: Haynesworth: Redskins underplayed his condition

Re: More Haynesworth Drama? Big Al Sounds Off After Ravens Game

I am sure MS could give a crap what he is saying.

"You'll have to ask them, but I guess they'll tell you 'headaches' again," said Haynesworth", Why is it the team's responsibility to report what is wrong..

Shanahan is certainly making it clear that he has to earn his postion, I do like that... nobody is assumed to be in a position. Nice.

Re: More Haynesworth Drama? Big Al Sounds Off After Ravens Game

As long as his off-field language doesn't translate to his on-field performance I could care less. Plenty of people run their mouth about their leadership but they still perform up to their abilities. Week 1, Dallas' offense first possession should tell the true tale of Albert Haynesworth.

I bet that bothers Albert too. He probably wants MS to give a crap and the fact that he doesn't or at least is not showing it pisses off Albie even more. When you have as high an opinion of yourself as Albert does of himself you expect everyone else around you to feel the same.

Re: More Haynesworth Drama? Big Al Sounds Off After Ravens Game

I just think it's time to move on and we should cut the guy. He's really not that good of a player and the defense played well w/out him last year. They seemed to play very well w/out him last night. We've got a new regime here and he doesn't fit well with the new staff. Enough of this bullshit drama. Just cut his lazy crybaby ass.

I agree; he's too much of a hassle.. However, would you want to cut a guy after you give your own 21 millions dollars to him?

Angry Re: More Haynesworth Drama? Big Al Sounds Off After Ravens Game

Albert Haynesworth is part of a team. He acts as though he's the whole team. While he may have enough fat for a whole team, he's one player and he's acting like a two-year old child with tantrums. He's a disgrace and the money he's made is outlandish for the little he's contributed. I think it's reaching the point where Snyder should swallow his losses and kick the bum and his headaches, knee problems and potty issues out!

Look at Clinton Portis. He used to be a prima donna - he didn't practice, he went around the coach to the owner, etc. Not anymore. Look at what condition he's in. I expect big things will come of his willingness to participate once more.

Yes I would cut him, regardless of the money. At this point we need to just move on. As you said he's just too much of a hassle with all this drama. I've never seen a guy that is more of a train wreck then this fat baby. It would be different if he was any good but the guy plays one play and then he's ineffective for the next few plays and gets pushed around. Enough is enough.

Great point here. CP was the biggest malcontent and now you don't here a peep out of the guy. He's in shape, he's running hard, he's done everything they've asked him to do. Yet AH can't get his ass with the program.

Re: More Haynesworth Drama? Big Al Sounds Off After Ravens Game

If they cannot reel him in, I am confident Bruce will unload him. I am sure they have Carte Blanche to ditch him "at will" but would like to salvage as much as possible if he cannot be turned from the dark side........

Awww...I am disappointed Albert wasn't allowed to feel good about himself. It's not right....it's not fair!

Re: More Haynesworth Drama? Big Al Sounds Off After Ravens Game

AH should not be cut. Then he gets what he wants (freedom) and we get nothing.

AH should be traded only if we can get something decent for him. Otherwise, he should be left to rot on the bench a la Lavar Arrington.

If he continues to use his mouth as a distraction, then he should be suspended, a la Keyshawn Johnson.

Shanny has done all of the right things. You can't let one player be bigger than the team.

And so the pendulum swings again. I'm not going to give a damn because it will keep on swinging.
