Phillip Daniels recommends Albert Haynesworth "chill"

By Dan Steinberg

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."

Boy, I know Haynesworth gets tired of Phillip Daniels bum ass commenting on his life. Albert shouldn't be here next year and neither should Daniels, he's been collecting undeserved checks for years now.

The sooner dead weight like both of them leave the Skins' the better.

Say what you want but Daniels only contribution this year has been talking to the media about Haynesworth.

if you are so tired of hearing his name, shut up yourself. as a fan of the team and the game i am as tired of this haynesworth do-do as anyone else. All u have to say is the guy is innocent until proven guilty. he'll have his day in court.

The Big Al-legations List
(All the reasons, proven and alleged, that Haynesworth should be sitting on a couch and talking with Dr. Phil)

Temper:
* He stomped on the head of the Cowboys' Andre Gurode during a game, drawing the most severe penalty in the history of the game for an on-field incident.

Recklessness:
* He partially paralyzed a man in Tennessee when, driving his Ferrari at 100 miles per hour, he struck the man's car and sent the car into a concrete barrier. He refused to help with the man's medical bills, didn't accept responsibility for the accident, and had already been placed on probation for excessive speeding on the same part of the Interstate.

* He is being sued by a bank for failing to make payments on a loan of more than $2 million - even though he pocketed $41 million last spring.

* He was accused of impregnating a stripper in New York.

This guy has really left himself with very little benefit of the doubt. Is it possible that he attacked the driver a couple of weeks ago? Unfortunately for Haynesworth, just one look at the Gurode tape would convince any jury pool that he's capable of doing that.

Preach on, ArmchairGM!
AH isn't earning his money and all the haters don't like him because they never got the opportunity to sniff a contract like AH's.
I still say AH signed the contract, make him play it. That means make him play all defensive downs, special teams, snaps with 1st team thru practice squad. If he wants to play, play him all the time. The best way to get back at someone lazy is to make them work. Daniels needs to retire and get a job in broadcasting.

Haynesworth is easily the worst Redskin EVER.

Even though I now hate the Redskins, there are many players I still admire on that team, one of them being Philip Daniels.

Phil plays his a$$ off every game (along with Orakpo, Andre Carter, London Fletcher, etc.) so he's earned the right to call out a lazy, selfish, unmotivated teammate.

Daniels is 37 years old and likely won't be back with the Redskins for the 2011 season.

Maybe that in part is why he was willing to be honest enough to tell fans what we have thought all along, namely that AH is done in Washington and doesn't have a future here in any capacity.

He has made an enemy of everyone in this city from Day 1 and has littered the offseason with missteps and misdeeds that are front page news.

If this were Pittsburgh or Philly he would be off the roster by now.

No way that the Rooneys would put up with a guy being involved in this many questionable escapades given how difficult his stay in town has been in re his on the field performance.

Rather than reforming Haynesworth as Shanahan and Co. thought they would do by keeping him for 2010, Albert has instead brought the entire organization lower in the eyes of everyone around the NFL.

And for a PR savvy guy like Snyder, he seems to stupid to realize that.

HAHAHA, riiiiight. Because Rooney did such a good job of getting rid of his rapist QB and his wife beating LB (Harrison) and his dirtiest player in the NFL cheap shot artist WR (Ward) and, until their 3rd or 4th offense, his drunk in public kicker (Reed) and his pot smoking WR (Holmes) etc. etc.

Yeeep, class act that Steelers organization!

Yo donkey - Reed is gone, Holmes is gone....you don't get rid of players after ther first offense and like it or not, you aren't getting rid of your 2 time SB winning QB. We should be so lucky to have some players like that.....guys that actually PRODUCE on the field in addition to doing sh*t off the field. Our guys just eff up, they don't produce. You don't cut DEF POY, SB winning QB's and all time team leading receivers (by the way, what did he do wrong other than coldcock DB's??).
AH is the biggest piece of crap this team has ever had its hands on. AH should have been banned from the NFL after stomping that dudes head, straight up assault. Daniels has never done anything BUT played his a** off, might not be the most talented guy but he never laid down like a frigging DOG on national TV. I'd like to say AH is nothing but a dirty dog but that isn't fair to dirty dogs everywhere. Dogs are at least loyal to the people that support/provide for them, no matter how they are treated. AH cares only about himself and his bank account.....I'm not a religous man but I pray with all my might that we trade him to Oakland or Buffalo, maybe Cincy and be done with him. If we were stupid enough to trade him to Philly I pray the OL coaches remind our young players that chop blocks are legal and send him home with a ripped ACL, serves his fat a** right.
