Haynesworth was "awful" (WP) - may not start against Dallas

Albert Haynesworth's disappointing performance in Washington Redskins' preseason finale affects his status for opener

A disappointing performance by Albert Haynesworth in the Redskins' preseason finale has renewed concerns about the Pro Bowler's commitment to the team and apparently has affected his status for the regular-season opener against Dallas, three people familiar with the situation said Saturday.

Haynesworth was "awful" Thursday during the Cardinals' 20-10 victory at University of Phoenix Stadium, said two of the team sources who recently reviewed game film. It often appeared he gave little effort while participating in 49 of the Redskins' 55 defensive plays. On the few occasions he did play hard, the two sources said, Haynesworth failed to adhere to the principles of the new 3-4 scheme. He was credited with four tackles, including three unassisted.

The saga continues.. This standoff may be a season long. I'm sure he didn't try hard because he was upset at playing the whole game with the back-ups. And I'm sure he'd try a lot harder during a real game, esp. with Dallas. But I guess the standoff between the coach and player is getting ridiculous.

Do you think we should:
1) Play Haynesworth and give him the benefit of the doubt?
2) Ship him off & trade him to somewhere else?
3) Bench him until he actually plays & proves it to Shanahan...

It sure would help to have him at Dallas.

Again the problem with trading AH, is the fact we gave him 21M Guaranteed. He won't start vs Dallas but he will play most of the game... Shanny is a hard ass but the guy also wants to win.

Shanahan was relaxed on his show, and asked about AH, his expression didn't change and he didn't really react, but he didn't seem concerned. Personally, he may not be a starter but AH will get plenty of snaps.

RT @JReidPost Redskins sources: This is not about whether Haynesworth starts. Apparently, that ship has sailed. Now it's if he will play.

I hope this is just smokescreen. Maake can't do it all by himself.

How shocking...a veteran not giving his all for a couple of plays in the final preseason game. This is such a newsworthy story!

Re: Haynesworth was "awful" (WP) - may not start against Dallas

Apparently Mike Shanahan did not see our starting defensive line being pushed around by the Bills o-line during the first few snaps of the Bills game or how awful they looked anytime AH wasn't playing.

I hope this is some type of smoke screen crap.

I feel like this goes more beyond that simple observation. For all we know maybe Albert has stopped giving a shit and has just decided not to play to his best until he gets the hell out of here.

Either way the longer this situation simmers the worse it will get. It's time to just get rid of him. There's nothing worse than a player who can be dominant losing all motivation to be dominant and not playing up to his capabilities, and I'm pretty sure if he plays half assed against the Cowboys his teammates will tell the coaches to pull his ass out of there before he starts costing the team points.

He played well against the Jets and against the Bills. Personally, I felt he played well when it mattered against the Cards. it's a matter of Shanahan letting it go and just let the guy play period.

We get it Shanahan, you won, don't need to be rubbing it in every f'ing time you talk about the guy. Ugh.

Re: Haynesworth was "awful" (WP) - may not start against Dallas

Unfortunately if this situation is this bad, his trade value has dropped quite a bit. Who'd give us a 2nd round pick for someone that's not even starting with our team.. And is it worth giving up Haynesworth after $21 million for just something like a 4th rounder? I guess sometimes you just have to accept your losses and move on.

I'm still hoping they get on the same page, and Shanahan just buys him a cigar.

You are exactly right.
However in this situation the 'inside source' is an imaginary friend of the writer that is trying to get a headline. Did you see this lame article is on the front page of WP on line edition? Must be a really slow news day.
Correct if I am wrong but Shanahan down played it in his interview? I did not see it, but it seems like he did not go off on Haynesworth as the articel implied he would do.
Inside source should reveal himself.
Is vinny in the house?

Seriously, if there's something analogous to describe the Haynesworth affair, it's a swinging pendulum.

Re: Haynesworth was "awful" (WP) - may not start against Dallas

I was thinking the same thing watching him on Thursday. Guy was simply standing up half the time and putting no effort into wrecking havoc on the other teams line. After a series or two Haynesworth would have been the last person I double teamed.
