Ron Saul would have taken Haynesworth out back

Chatting at 11:30. Submit questions here.

If you hate reading about Albert Haynesworth, please don't read this. You'll hate it.

But at least we're now adding a new flavor to the Haynesworth critique: macho humor.

"You know, everybody says there's no I in team." former Skins lineman Ron Saul told Comcast SportsNet at this week's alumni golf event. "Well, there isn't. I just feel that right there, we would have taken care of that situation, the players would have. We wouldn't have expected the coaches or the owner to. We would have taken him out back, behind the barn, and did something. But now, your agents are running the show, and all this and that. It makes it tough."

But Ron....what would you have done to him behind the barn? Also, what barn? Also, how can you take an invisible man behind a barn? Either way, I love this new development in Haynesworthisms. We really need some pro wrestlers to chime in.

CSN also talked to Mark Moseley about He Who Shall Not Be Blogged About (more than twice a day), and Moseley is on the team.

"I think any player that you pay that kind of money to, you better make sure they love to play football," he said. "And i think in this case, i don't think he really loves football, or he'd be here."

And then there was former DB Mike Nelms, who talked to NBC Washington about the situation. Alumni comments on Haynesworth are turning into a virtual cottage industry. Or barn industry. Anyhow:

"If they paid us $21 million, you wouldn't have to tell us to come in, you'd have to tell us to go home, because we'd stay there," Nelms said. "But he's looking out for himself."

Major bonus points to the first person who gets Matt Turk on the record about Haynesworth.

Major bonus points to the first person who gets a Turk brother on the record about Haynesworth.

Well, I think we have to track down Matt Turk for comment as Dan Turk will likely not have an opinion since he is dead.

Hey Goose, I promise you I somehow forgot about that, or maybe never knew it. Horrible. My apologies, that must have come off incredibly badly.

I've changed the wording, obviously.
