As much as I hated him as a Titan I don't find much fault in what he's saying. The whole structure of that organization is dysfunctional and it wasn't what he signed up for. Yes cue the chorus of people who'd say just look at the Redskins history and Snyder and he shoulda seen it coming. But this is just bad beyond belief.
Beyond the staff and front office disarray its clear the scheme is not right for him. They said they'd tailor the scheme around him and they haven't. Why would you want Haynesworth reading and reacting? He had his best years in Tennessee he was told to just get up field and rush all game. He collapses the pocket when he's just bulldozing up field, not when he's grabbing/reading/reacting. If they can get the right defensive coordinator in there I think this is a top 5 defensive unit, maybe top 3.
Yeah, but considering they just (like in the last two weeks) brought in a new GM, and it's as close to a given as it can be that he's going to clean house in the coaching ranks, isn't it a pretty good time to shut your mouth, see what the new guy does, and wait until next year before shooting off your mouth - or at least keep it in-house?
Yes but the new guy is a GM and Haynesworth was ripping on the coaches, the players probably can't even tell the difference yet with the new GM compared to Ceratto running things. The players all know the staff is gonna be cleaned out and Haynesworth seems to be kicking Zorn in his butt on the way out. It lacks class yes (as if Haynesworth had any to begin with ha) but I think he's not wrong in what he's saying in terms of the scheme.
Reportedly, Haynesworth tried to get other players to come late to practice with him.
lol yup he is worth $100 million. He won't be there for more then 2 seasons. Once a slug always a slug.
Oh grow up man! Albert has a 10 cent brain.
Any of you can say what you want about the man but I would gladly trade Amobi, Cody, Robinson, and Smith for one Albert Haynesworth.
Would only get him for 13 games and at least 2 of them he would be faking injury. Bet you would also enjoy him half arsing playes half the time especially when you needed him to be at 110%. Take it from a Titans fan ... if he is not playing for money he is not that good.
Fun fact about AH: He ripped a towl rack out of the wall and hit his gf future wife with it. Story did not make much press because she zipped her lip in less then 5 hours to makes some $$.
Haynesworth is the poster child for exactly the type of player that McNair doesn't want in Houston.
Only if he was in a contract year every year.
True McNair loves him some chior boys.
No need to sign an all-pro. and general bad a&& at a position of need. He doesn't fit McNairs profile of what a player should be. Church going, mom, pop and apple pie kind of guy.
He also would have to pay Haynesworth top dollar. You're right that's not McNairs kinda player.
a little read
It doesn't take a bad attitude to be a good football player.
Case in point: Reggie White, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, etc. etc.
