As for the injury, this is the NFL. He should get more than a couple plays a game, even if he's hurt.

As for his attitude, its obvious anyone who plays in the nfl should want to play and be upset if he's not. This guy has played hurt for us many, many times and probably not gotten the respect for it. He probably is a little sensative sometimes but this guy has a ton of heart and is a true redskin.

And...he probably should be explained how they want to "easy him in" or if they are just not going to play him b/c they feel he freelances too much. He is one of the most tenured skins on the team.
All of this runs contrary to his statements last year when he complained that the coaches rushed him back after his injury too early.

Sometimes, it seems like it's hard to please LaVar.

Re: LaVar not happy

Like i said before....maybe lavar should of learned Williams system, rather than take those people to wal-mart. but then again, this might be a good thing for lavar....if he keeps acting like a little bitch, he can use his degree from the state penn, i mean penn state, and maybe one day i'll hear over the intercom....LAVAR, CLEAN UP ON AISLE THREE. But i really think the reason is more than the knee,Williams is a great coach, and i think he wants his players to be in the right position all the time and lavar does his own thing, which hurts our scheme. I use to be a big fan of lavars, until he tried to screw the team out of money, then i saw what a selfish dick he really is. I use to wear Lavars shirt every sunday with pride, sadly now, he's old news(and a bitch) i might add, now i wear taylors #21 jersey, now he's a stud who gives his all.

Re: LaVar not happy

lavar has his reasons, for instance in that arbitration, he felt they wronged him, therefore he did what he had to do, but in the end it got settled peacefully. he's not a selfish man, taking those people to walmart speaks for itself. sadly now, he's not being used to his full potential, and he's not a bitch. what the hell did he do to deserve this treatment? now taylor's a stud who gives his all? yeah i figured, that's why he took the law into his own hands and put a gun to some guy's face. i'm getting sick of all you lavar haters, for all the things he does for the fans you'd think he get the tiniest ounce of respect. did you ever think lavar just decided bah, i don't have to learn the playbook, no. maybe he thinks he's ready, but the coaches think he isn't. and did the thought ever cross your mind that in gregg williams scheme, the plays for lavar are designed so he can freelance and still make plays?

Re: LaVar not happy

LAVAR could get more pressure on QBs playing a one man front than all four of our starters

Re: LaVar not happy

back to the original post, i heard the entire interview yesterday (replayed) and he said if you ask anyone, of course they're not happy when they're not playing, but winning is far more important than anything else, and we won... that's a paraphrase anyways.

Whoa, cowboy (no punned intended), I thought Taylor still had to stand trial on his situation. So why are you saying he pointed a gun to someone's face....and he's only been accused at this point?

Re: LaVar not happy

either way, I'm getting antsy to see Arrington and Taylor and Washington and Griffin all on the field at the same time. Our DE's need a bit of work, but our seconday is crucial. I just really wanna see some big plays on defense. We havent really had to many. I know wins are what matters, but big D plays couldnt hurt.

Re: LaVar not happy

BTW yeah that was arrington in the first play that ran JJ down from behind, but when they introduced the starting D on TV they announced holdman, marshall, and washington.

Sorry 12th Man but Taylor should have the smarts to not even put himself in that situation, he has too much at stake. I partly agree with you everyone has a right to a fair trial and you are innocent until proven guilty. Still any adult needs to use better judgement and not risk your life and livlihood. If this ends up self-defence, that is one thing, but because Taylor has a track record now of getting into trouble it is cause for concern. How many times do you have to see smoke before there is a fire?

are you trying to say that taylor didn't pull a gun? because everyone who watches football knows that taylor did put a gun to some dude's face. i believe he will be found not guilty, but that doesn't excuse the fact that he did it. he shouldn't even have gotten into that situation in the first place, he should've told the police and let them go after the guy that stole his atv's. but that's beside the point, the guy who made the original post was riding taylor's dick like HE was a perennial pro bowler who's made big time plays for us when we needed them.

Re: LaVar not happy

Lavar may say is is 100% healthy, but he is not playing like the old Lavar. It may be psychological and not physical, but he must be favoring his bad knee.
Lavar is not playing up to the level before his knee injury. From what I have seen him play this preseason and regular season, his point of attack ability is fine, but his speed and ability to cut is not like before. He is not coming around the corner (around the OT) with the speed needed to make a diffrence. His pass rush skills are not yet there, he has been some what of a non-factor when in the game.
Maybe the coaches feel the guys they are using instead of Lavar are dong a better job for now, until Lavar gets his wheels back.

There is so much wrong with this entire post that I hardly know where to start.

First of all, you're no longer a fan of a guy who takes hurricane victims to walmart to buy them necessities with his own money, out of the goodness of his heart......because you believe a guy like Sean Taylor is more worthy of your praise.......a guy who doesn't bother returning his coaches' calls all offseason because he's too busy getting involved in gun-play that could keep him away from our team for 3 years while he's sitting in prison??? That fact alone should probably have been enough for me to just ignore this post.

But then there's what appears to be a slight at Penn State as well......and everyone here knows I'm not keeping my mouth shut about that. If you are insinuating that somehow a Penn State degree is likely to lead to a career at Walmart, then please, I beg you, send me a private message with where you graduated college and let's see whose degree has gotten them farther.

And that "selfish dick" (kinda seems contradictory to the whole Walmart comment there, doesn't it? After all, what has your idol Sean Taylor done for anyone else other than himself?) dropped the arbitration with the skins so that they could work out a settlement. Seems to me his complaint must have had some merit, or else why would the Skins be willing to pay anything at all to him?

And I know you're an expert and all, but how have you determined in the handfull of games that Lavar has played under Williams's system that Lavar has not bought into the system and refuses to do anything other than his own thing? Where's the evidence of that?

Re: LaVar not happy

"As long as we're winning, I guess I can't complain too much," said the three-time Pro Bowl linebacker, who started but played just a handful of snaps. "You know how I am. I want to be out there trying to make a difference. I want to help. I thought the whole plan was to ease me back in, but that hasn't turned out to be true."

Wow, a guy who wants to earn his money and play and help the team anyway he can.........what a dick! Boy, you Lavar haters really got me there.
