    I think the dude's got a mental problem. Or he's just flat out ignorant. I mean, telling defensive coaches on when and where he'll play and telling the GM he'll no longer speak to the head coach?? WTF? Does he think he's playing in little league?

    This guy just reminds me of the Steve Miller Band "Go on take the money and run" As soon he got his money he quit giving a damn!

    Actually it sounds like he would fit right in with Tennessee. Bud obviously loves team "leaders" like this. HOU-TEX comments could also apply to VY too. BTW, if you have Vince and Albert do you really need a head coach?

    Is he suspended without pay? If so, that could be a nice loophole to save the team some money on his enormous contract.

    :lol: Good point

    It is without pay, but he's already received his guaranteed money in the off-season. IIRC, his paycheck's aren't a lot. Well, they aren't a lot for NFL standards anyway.

    Fat Albert was never worth a shit until he was in the last year of his contract. He then got franchised and played at a high level. He got the contract from Snyder and has gave a shit since. I don't ever want that guy in a Texans uniform.

    Hey, I think he ought to "man up" and play...especially for the coin he's making, but....

    To a point I understand his antics...he got traded, THEN they changed their Defense. He's not a 3-4 end and it pi**es him off. He was a dominant player at his position and he's being asked to do something completely different. Following this line of thinking, that's why he refused to go in under certain alignments....until he could more/less play as a pass-rushing end.

    Imagine Mario being asked to be a 3-4 LB and to cover guys in space...while I don't think he'd throw this kind of tantrum, he wouldn't be pleased.

    This couldn't happen to a more deserving player than Haynesworthless.

    I can't believe anyone would entertain thoughts of bringing him to the Texans. That man is a loser.

    Didn't you see him sack Cutler without touching him? He plowed the center into Cutler. Hell yes I'd take him. I bet Belichick would be able to tame him... would Kubiak? Probably not then again he doesn't host hard practices. Haynesworth might like that.

    From the Redskins Board

    IN ASHBURN, December 7, 2010.

    The unanimous Declaration of the Washington Redskins,

    When in the Course of football events, it becomes necessary for one coaching staff to dissolve the professional bands which have connected them with a player, and to assume among the teams of the league, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of the National Football League and of Nature's Commissioner entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of fankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all teams are created equal, that they are endowed by their Commissioner with certain unalienable Plays, that among these are 40-gut, [the Statue of] Liberty and the pursuit of the Football.--That to secure these plays, Players are instituted among Teams, deriving their just scores from the efforts of the franchises,--That whenever any Player of Football becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the Coaches to alter or to abolish him, and to institute new Player, laying his foundation on such principles and organizing his powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Scoreboard and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Players long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that coachkind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the players to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Insubordination, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such a Player, and to provide new Guards [and Tackles] for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Coaches; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Player of Football. The history of the present King of Defensive Linemen is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over this Team. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    He has repeatedly refused to cooperate with our coaching staff in a variety of ways over an extended period of time.
    He has consistently indicated to our defensive coaches that he refuses to play in our base defense or on first-down or second-down nickel situations.
    He has refused to follow the instructions of our coaches both during weekly practices and during actual games as well.
    He has told the General Manager that he would no longer speak with the Head Coach.
    He has often played patty-cake with opposing offensive linemen.
    He has refused to go all-out on every play.
    He has lain on the ground while effort might have produced positive results for his Team.
    He has failed to report to practice on time.
    He has resisted entreaties to appear in off-season organized team activities.

    In every stage of these Oppressions Coaches have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Their repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be a player of a storied franchise.

    We, therefore, the Coaching staff and Front Office of the Washington Redskins, in Redskins Park, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Coach of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good Owner of this Team, solemnly publish and declare, That these Washington Redskins are, and of Right ought to be a Free and Independent Team; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the Selfish Player, and that all political connection between them and Albert Haynesworth, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as a Free and Independent Team, they have full Power to play Games, build Fanbases, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent Teams may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.


    Mike Shanahan, Executive Vice President/Head Coach

    Bruce Allen, Executive Vice President/General Manager

    Haynesworth is going to be a bargain for whoever takes him off Washington's hands and he'll play his ass off I bet to boot. I'd take him in a heartbeat because he's better than any defensive tackle the Texans have ever put on the field, AND he's going to be pleased to return to his natural position, AND he's going to want to show the rest of the league that the last two years in Washington were the Redskins fault and not his, AND he'd love to play against the Titans twice a year.

    But he's difficult. There's no doubt about that. Haynesworth is a challenge to coach. He's a challenge to keep motivated. He's not a choirboy or a good citizen by Mr. McNair's definition so he's off limits. We'll stick with our kids and keep "battling" to try and figure out why they can't suddenly go war daddy on offenses for three hours on Sunday between visits to orphaned children and volunteering at the soup kitchen.

    Who ever heard of a successful football team without a few troublemakers mixed in?

    Few things

    1) When I heard the $$ he got, I was thrilled the Titans passed. Thet contract seemed stupid then, now its going to go down as the biggest free-agent bust of alltime. (until the next one)

    2) Was clear as day from get get-go he was a classic contract player that played pissed over his franchise tag.

    3) Missed his DL coach Jim Washburn, who was able to harness his lazy ass into caring and becoming a beast.

    4) He's done. It's not like he's young or hasn't had the odd injury. He may contribute as a rotation DT, but he'll never be what we saw in 2008. That ship has sailed.
