Re: Redskins D-coordinator talks frustration over Haynesworth

Its not about teaching him a lesson, its about making AH an example and using him to teach the team a lesson. I donít think Shanahan really cares about the money Danny spent on AH, I think its more about the laziness and unwilliness that AH shows, the fact that he took the bonus check (instead of finding a trade partner) then not showing up to minicamp, then showing up out of shape to mandatory camp, then refusing to play NT, and then pretty much refusing to play at all. Sure AH stole money from Danny (who wouldnít), but he also betrayed Shanahan. Now AH is the main subject in teaching The Redskins (the players) a lesson.

I dont really care one way or another if we keep him or not but if I was forced to choose i think keeping him is probably the better option. And im pretty much cool with whatever Shanahan decides to do with him, im guessing he has a better idea with what resonates with a football team then me. And like Shanahan and Allen probably feel I honestly donít think itís a big deal or distraction for the team. Its probably awkward for the guy that has his locker right next to AHís but thatís about it. Because of AHís past play and massive contract hes a high profile dude and a lot of people are going to take notice when he fís up. When a high profile crime is committed most DAís try to send a message by really sticking it to the bad guy. This is pretty much the same thing. The media may boo-hoo whats going on or make it out to be a big deal, but so what. The Redskins happen to be one of the most dysfunctional teams in the country. Until we consistently win it doesnít matter what the media thinks of us or portrays us as, because lets face itÖÖ weíre irrelevant.

Which players need to be taught a lesson?

Ha! That's funny.
It was our former FO that made the mistake. It is our current FO and coach that thought they could trust AH to play in a 3-4 and give him a big check.
They had the option of getting rid of him at that time and not giving him the check. The current players on our roster did nothing wrong and do not need to be taught a lesson. Other than playing like Shizen and getting better on the field.
A post-it to the forehead would do the same thing and be less costly. The salary cap most likely will be back next season and I do not want a player on the bench collecting a big check. No lesson in the world is worth that.

Just win. Winning cures all....or at least field a competitive team that improves each year and is fun to watch.
I really think the delay in getting rid of him has more to do with trying to control or prevent AH from going to a team in our division like Philly. That would be a bad thing. I think a Tennessee deal would be ideal.
Yeah the sports reporters were saying the eagles had offered us a 4th in last years draft. This is a sad, odd situation.

I agree with Ruhskins, time to just move on and I was one who wanted him to rot out on the bench for 2 more years.

Eff it, he burned us for about 20 extra mil. Time to cut the losses and just move on . . . . after we find a way of ensuring he doesnt go to the NFC east.

Not in a bad way..... I mean use him to set a tone for how things are going to run around Redskins Park to all current and would be players. Just like making an example out of a high profile criminal serves as a broad announcement to the general public, the same thing goes here.


Again i dont really care either way what happens, but getting upset about not cutting him and moving on is just as bad as grabbing your pitch fork and joining the mob that wants to hang him in the streets. Im thinking its not a big deal inside the organization. Until I hear players or coaches come out and say the Shanahan Allen regime is running the team like their predecessors its just a non-factor to me.

Re: Redskins D-coordinator talks frustration over Haynesworth

I think there are two basic reasons why Haynesworth is still with the Redskins. (1) He was signed to a lengthy contract with a huge signing bonus and the team has seemed destined to get some production from him in exchange for their investment. Problem is, Albert has refused to cooperate in every way, utilizing his self centered demands to serve only as a distraction. (2) Driven by that determination to get "something" from Haynesworth they continued to put up with his antics and embarrassments hoping against hope that he would eventually come around. They were just as determined to not just let him walk and not get at least [what they feel] to be equal value in return. Convinced the guy has talent and can still play, they've been content to hold out for the best offer they could get in exchange. As a result, Haynesworth is still here because of the dilemma he presents. When teams are free to make transactions, I believe the conclusion has been reached that it's time to move on from "one" Albert Haynesworth.

I hope Haynesworth is as confused about what's going to happen with him as I am.

They can't suspend him now, but they can (and will) once it ends. Goodell has already been on record saying the stuff that happens during this lockout will still warrant action if necessary.

Of course hes going to say that stuff that happens during the lockout can get you suspended, he cant say anything else.

Thats what Czabe and I think their chubby friend Florio said about a week or so ago on the radio. I figured they'd be credible enough.

Did some quick googling, stuff about how the eagles declined a Haynesworth and pick for mcnabb deal and a AH and landry deal for mcnabb. Maybe it was the 2nd and AH, then Ah got replaced by that conditional 3rd-4th rounder.

Thank goodness landry didnt go. Could you imagine losing him in return for 1 season of mcnabb?

Remember when many misguided folks on this sight wanted to get rid of Landry before last season? Amazing what a difference a year can make.
