Re: Redskins D-coordinator talks frustration over Haynesworth

The Eagles didn't offer us a 4th for Haynesworth

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.

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.

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.

I think if he's a distraction early on, you suspend him again for 4 games and sit him at home the rest of the year like the Bucs did with Keyshaun. THEN, you wait until the off-season and dump him.

I am not positive about this but I think that option is not available.

When the Eagles sent T.O. home for the year, the NFLPA filed some sort of grievance and the NFLPA won. I believe that the most a team can do is to suspend a player for 4 games for "being a distraction" or things like that. After that, I believe the player has to be put back on the team or released.

Switching to the 3-4 didn't help but the Redskins also have a reputation for overpaying a player, getting screwed, then releasing him to sign with any team he wants. Unless I'm mistaken isn't that what happened with Archuletta, Lloyd, etc.? I didn't want him here to begin with because this is exactly what I was afraid would happen. You can check my posts before we signed him. I was impressed with his talent and hoped for the best when he got here but absolutely do not want him on this team. I understand your point and agree with you Ruhskins, but if the Redskins decide to keep him and make his life miserable after giving him millions of dollars based on his agreement to go along with the changing defense, then AH breaking that same agreement that got him millions of their dollars...well I can understand their point too. We'll continue to sign FA's. Some will pan out some won't. It just seems some come here with the idea of getting paid, doing whatever they want, then getting released to sign somewhere else. No matter how good a player is, if that's their mindset based on the reputation the Redskins have among players in the league, a reputation we've earned, then why will it stop? Isn't releasing him exactly what he wants? Go to the Redskins and take the money and run. It's frustrating as hell and until the owners and players come to an agreement I probably just want to punish the SOB. No matter how it goes, hopefully we have a GM in Bruce Allen that will structure contracts in a way this kind of BS will no longer happen.

From what I heard, there was only ONE other team interested in Haynesworth as a Free Agent - - the Titans - - and their offer was reportedly in the $78-80M range. When Danny Boy and Vinny The Talking Head swooped in with their offer they were so far above anything else out there, the agent told AH to sign quickly before these guys found out what the competition was offering...

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.

I seriously doubt that the Eagles ever offered the Redskins a 4th round pick for Haynesworth.
