Phillip Daniels recommends Albert Haynesworth "chill"
I think I probably thought that 2010 was the golden age of Albert Haynesworth radio transcripts, and that after Old '92 didn't just burn bridges with the Redskins but then rolled around on the charred bridge remains on the ground, 2011 would involve some cathartic break.
Well, not yet. And as long as Haynesworth is technically a Redskin and keeps getting into scrapes with the law, I suppose teammates will keep being asked about him, and bloggers will keep transcribing their thoughts.
"Well, it definitely don't help when you've got a guy who's in the media all the time," Phillip Daniels said on 106.7 The Fan's Overtime Monday night. "Even though he might be innocent of both charges. He might be a guy who's getting picked at. But at the same time, your name keep coming up, and that's not good. At all. I mean, it definitely is not gonna help him with the Redskins. I think with what happened last season and all the stuff that we went through, guys defended him 'til the end, and then guys started getting tired of it.
"I just think in the end, he's gonna look back and realize that all the stuff he's doing now, and his name keeps coming up, it's doing more damage to his career. Other teams that might be thinking about bringing him in, or if the Redskins might think about keeping him, it's gonna hurt both ways. So I don't know. It's tough. I just keep hearing his name come up. You're kind of tired of hearing his name come up, but I understand that we're in a business where people are gonna come after you and say things and do things.
"And I don't know if it's true or not, but I'm hoping it's not. I'm hoping that he's gonna be ok. But there's something when your name keeps coming up in the media. Sometimes you've just got to sit back and chill a little bit."
Then Grant Paulsen asked Daniels whether it could work out between Haynesworth and the Redskins, and whether he could feasibly be back.
"To be honest with you, the way things happened last year and how he went about doing things last year, I don't think so," Daniels said. "I don't think it'd work. I don't think he could come back in here. He already said he don't want to play in the 3-4, he doesn't want to be a part of that, he doesn't want to play nose. It's hard for me to see that right now."
