HaynesworthPosted by Josh Katzowitz

The “Albert Haynesworth is a lazy, worthless piece of garbage” stories are not difficult to find on the Eye on Football blog. Whether he’s been charged with sexual abuse, accused of road rage, or suspended for the last four games of the season, it’s actually pretty difficult to find a positive story about Haynesworth.

This post, thanks to Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, continues that theme.

Today, Haslett told 101 ESPN Radio in St. Louis (via Pro Football Talk) that Haynesworth basically is a worthless piece of garbage (he didn't say it quite that harshly, though).

“He can do almost anything he wants. He doesn’t want to do anything. To me that’s the issue,” Haslett said. “He’s one of those guys you walk in a meeting and you tell him, ‘Put down the phone.’ The next day you have to tell him to put down the phone. The next day, you tell him to put down the phone.

“You tell him, ‘Don’t read the newspaper in meetings.’ The next day you have to tell him the same thing. It doesn’t stick; it’s an everyday thing.”

It is possible to feel some sympathy for Haynesworth, because he was told he wouldn’t have to play a 3-4 defense before the Redskins coaching staff decided to, you know, implement the 3-4 defense.

So, if you want to make the claim that the team went back on its word to Haynesworth, that’s a fair point.

But the lack of professionalism (picking up his phone and reading the newspaper during team meetings? Really?!?!) apparently displayed by Haynesworth continues to astound. And when his defensive coordinator is the one calling him out, that’s pretty darn telling.

Daniel Snyder is an idiot

Poor poor Redskins fans. 

The best 4-3 defensive tackle in the NFL - and you sign him to be a 3-4 nose tackle
The best run stuffing strong safety in the game (Adam Archuleta) - and you sign him to be a cover 2 free safety
The best gimmick player in the game (Antwan Randle El) - and you sign him to be a number 2 receiver
The best deep ball in the game (Jeff George) - and you sign him to run the west coast offense

Maybe Daniel Snyder should, I don't know, only sign players who fit the team????

This is exactly why I always say when a player is under contract and they have a great year, they hold out for money,,,Why? There under contract and they should show up and play. They don't and these dam Player Agents get the teams to restructure and they get paid more...Well, what about this situation, The player gets paid a boat load of money and does NOTHING for it,,,,,,Lets now go to the Player Agents and have them and the player Pay the team back 'x' amount of money for not performing. The players want it one way and thats it. Haynsworth should have to pay the Skins at least half his contract back due to lack of effort and HEART.....The guy is a CLOWN and should be on the street selling papers, He doesn't deserve all the money he has,,,If they gave me $100 Million dollars, I'd play in a 4-3, 3-4, 2-5, 1-6 Defense(you get the point),,,,RIDICULOUS!!!

It comes down to character.  Haynesworth has none.  He's not the first guy to get paid and then underperform, even for the Skins (hello Dana Stubblefield).  A character guy would see the $100 million on the table and bust his butt regardless of the situation he was put in.  A guy like Haynesworth sulks, makes excuses and disrespects that game that made him a multi-millionaire.  However, the Skins have no one but themselves to blame in this situation.  How they thought a guy who stomped on another player's face would somehow turn into a character guy overnight is beyond me.  Then again, kind of describes the Skins of the Snyder Era now, doesn't it?

You could see it coming!!!

He had one very good season (a contract season) and the Redskins threw big money at him.  Hayneswoth played the system, got his money and now doing as little as possible to keep getting paid.  It happens all of the time and this time it is the Skins that got burned.

His case was settled "out of court" last week.  - I wish the judge had fined him 40 million to repay to the Washington Redskins Fans for all he has put us through..
