Albert Haynesworth and Mike Shanahan: An unlikely win-win situation?

Redskins Insider - Albert Haynesworth and Mike Shanahan: An unlikely win-win situation?

Funny how tides can turn, gotta give Haslett credit for mediating this situation and making it work

It's good to see Haynesworth's name associated with anything positive. Whatever compromise has come about between the parties is long overdue.

Didn't that SOB say "I'm not good enough to play the 3-4" today? Here I was thinking he could be the best nose tackle in the business instead we got a part time player for a 100 million dollar contract. Fck him.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and Mike Shanahan: An unlikely win-win situation?

One thing left out/overlooked in the whole AH/Shanahan dramedy.

Anyone, anywhere, see Snyder's name mentioned as trying to influence the outcome?

Anyone believe, prior to this year and w/ the exception of Gibbs' tenure, that Snyder would have been a non-factor in the resolution of the issue?

Winning cures everything. The guy had a good game against a shitty O-line. I want to see him do it this week and the week after.

Warren Sapp could have theoretically been the greatest 3-4 RE ever if we just looked at him physically. Didn't happen because his mindset was up-the-field kill the QB. You also try to spin him as a lazy bitch when he sounded rather humble about the comments.


Simply because he has a huge contract does not in any way, shape, or form equate him to being a superhuman.

His name has not been out front, probably by design, but I'm not throughly convinced there was no influence [to a lesser degree] on his part. Too much money involved for there not to be.

Agree, the only point I'd add is that we're better off in the attacking 3-4 (Bum Phillips) vs a read/react 3-4 base. It takes better advantage of AH and would make him an every down player.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and Mike Shanahan: An unlikely win-win situation?

This simply means that there has been a separate peace reached for this year--Shanahan (via Haslett's prodding) and AH have settled on AH being a situational lineman. I think it makes it all the more likely that the two camps will try to find a way to divorce at the end of the season, because neither party is going to want this next year.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and Mike Shanahan: An unlikely win-win situation?

Last night on the NFL show on Showtime, Mike Lombardi was saying that the Redskins were lucky to have scored the TD by DeAngelo Hall, instead of getting flagged for a personal foul on Haynesworth's downhill block.

Redskins Insider - Shanahan says he would defend Haynesworth block to NFL

I love how people will try to spin this as a negative.

So pessimistic sometimes.

I don't have to paint, he's doing a fine job painting a hideous self-portrait. Being a nose tackle doesn't mean you can't rush the QB. Look at Jay Ratliff of the Cowboys or any decent nose tackle in the league...they are getting after the QB as much as a 4/3 tackle.

It's real clear to me that that SOB doesn't want to try and with his loser talk of "I can't" or "I can only play nickel" he pretty much said as much. The mark of a great player is the ability to adapt and they don't have the words "I can't" in their vocabulary. Again, fck him...I hope he chokes on a hot dog.

Wade runs a scheme that lets his guys shoot gaps. Haslett does not. The D-linemen hold the OL at bay for the LBs by playing two-gap responsibilities. This has been covered here in the past. It's also why I have my crazy sig.

And a link for good measure:
Guide to N.F.L. Defenses, Part 4: The 3-4 Front - NYTimes.com

There are other guys who have the physical skillset to be something better than they actually are. Those guys aren't. Andre Carter has the athleticism to be a 3-4 OLB, but he doesn't have the full set of instincts. Dhall could be another shutdown corner, but he's not.
