Albert Haynesworth numbers among Jim Washburn's biggest fans

By Cindy Boren

Bruce Allen has said that the Redskins would be open to having Albert Haynesworth back in the fall, but it just so happens that his favorite position coach now works for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Although Coach Andy Reid previously has expressed no interest in Haynesworth, the team's hiring of Jim Washburn, formerly Haynesworth's defensive-line coach in Tennessee, adds an interesting wrinkle. This is the one guy who has been able to consistently motivate Haynesworth and get him to play at a high level.

"I owe Coach Wash pretty much everything," Haynesworth told the Tennessean. "If my deal was $100 million or whatever, then Washburn deserves $90 million. I have the talent, but he taught me how to let it loose. As a player, once you can get through the [expletive], get down to the core of what he is saying, the information is more valuable than gold. He's a great coach, a great teacher. The Titans should have paid a lot of money to keep him from leaving."

Haynesworth certainly thought the Titans erred in letting Washburn leave.

"I guarantee you some of them [Titans players] are saying to themselves, 'Gosh, I'm glad that [expletive] is gone.' Because I felt the same way when I was a young guy with him," Haynesworth said. "My rookie year he was on my butt, cussing me out. I couldn't even look up and see sunshine he was on me so much."

Maybe the Redskins can get back their draft picks back by sending Haynesworth to Philly. I'm just sayin'...

Difference between the Eagles and the Skins. Philly signed Vick when no one else would and when the Skins could have had Vick for a ham sandwich.

Skins signed Fat Al when no one else even made a bid, and paid him like he was Lawrence Taylor in 1986.

Eagles got Vick. Skins got Albert.
One is a playoff team; the other a hot mess. Thus the difference.

Then the dummies here traded picks for Vick's successor, which many other dummiers applauded when the deal was made. I discredited the trade then. Why? McNabb was too old, just like Dan Dummy likes his coaches, GM's and players.

Agree some...disagree some also. First, Albert had plenty of high priced offers that why we had to pay so much to get him. He was actually offered more by another team but sign with Snyder instead.

Mike Vick signing took courage but it was also aided by Donovan McNabb; a good man , trying to help a guy get back into his craft. We Skin fans aren't phased by years of picketing by Native American Tribes begging us to change that racist name but we were scared to death of PETA. Go figure. smh..smh...Skin fans.

McNabb wasn't too old to help Washington. He darn near threw for 4000 yards but Shanny yanked him so he couldn't accomplish that. It would have made the brain trust look bad. Good players would be idiots to come to D.C. while this family(Shanahan and Son) are in business. This is going to be a disaster. Shanahan has been losing for a long time. This won't be anything new for him. Maybe finally Snyder's next coach will be young and/or perhaps even a minority. Somebody with a better feel for today's players.

Sounds to me like the Redskins gave $100 million to the wrong guy("Aintworthit") and should have hired Washburn instead. Even "Aintworthit" agrees:

""I owe Coach Wash pretty much everything," Haynesworth told the Tennessean. "If my deal was $100 million or whatever, then Washburn deserves $90 million. I have the talent, but he taught me how to let it loose."

Big Al would love to go to Philly and come back and kick the Skins butt twice a year.

Say what you want, but I know Rabach, Montgomery or Lichensteiger could not block him if he wants to play.

Lastly, the folks in Philly are different than us. Big All will play or he will be truly feel the wrath of the fan base.

I agree.

In March, the Skins will waive Haynseworth (They'll have to- who (other than Danny) would be stupid enough to take him?

He'll pass through waivers unclaimed, be a free agent, sign with Philly for minimum base $$ & a ton of incentives & will become an absolute beast & make the Pro Bowl, & maybe propel Philly into the Super Bowl.

Washburn won't touch him. Had more than his fill in TN. Wash does a great job of developing lower level talent for specific roles, and rotates them constantly. He thinks Haynesworth is a whack job, and not a necessary component IF he has adequate numbers of defensive linemen.

I like Albert....and hate Shanahan. I think Albert is very intelligent, honest and one of the best players in the NFL. It's a shame our coach wanted to make a name for himself by "showing his arse". Old School folks appreciated his grandstanding, I'm in charge foolishness. It wasn't even necessary.

Albert has said pretty much all of the right things in interviews. Shanahan on the other hand is nothing but a lying manipulator who thinks his son is "entitled" to lead. It's such a turn off in this day and age. Nepotism!

I have NO LOVE for the Skins under this regime. I can't wait until they flop and leave so I can cheer for the Skins again. Next year....I'm outta here with this team.

Posted by: kentonsmith | January 20, 2011 1:49 PM | Report abuse

The Washington football team should trade Albert Haynesworth to the Eagles. Shanahan let Albert move on. Shanahan(Shanny) cannot manage/coach him. Albert stirs up Shanahan’s long standing unresolved issues that he has not worked through but Shanny projects them on Albert. Shanny’s immaturity will prevail: If I trade Albert, he wins. I will not trade him. Why would I let Albert be happy? Misery loves company. Shanny, Albert pushes back!

Honestly the Skins organization has whiffed on talent more than any other NFL franchise no matter who,s the head coach, the late Sean Taylor was the only exception. Albert, Donavan,Jason and the rest of the sorry bunch they picked up over the years makes me wonder if these skins hunchos really watch NFL/College games. Now we have our hopes pinned on Rex Grossman!!How does this guy get a job in the NFL?

Posted by: zimife1999 | January 20, 2011 1:59 PM | Report abuse

No Albert; Washburn deserves the whole $100 million!

Not only the money but every NFL East team should poney up some bread for this guy by creating the no account bum of a player that has the skins saddled with the biggest boat anchor in the league!

Please go to Philly! I will personaly buy you a one way bench seat for fatties directly to the city of brotherly love!

So Mr Paynesworth, back up your statement and pay the man the $90M. If I were him, I wouldn't be checking the maibox or bank account as I doubt you would even send him anything. But if he really meant that much to you, send him something as a token of your appreciation for what he did for you.

Albert's dive over the center to stop a player at the goal line was still the best defensive play of the season.

Redskins show just how much they DON'T KNOW about football when they continue to call Albert a bum,lazy,etc,etc....you really don't know what you're talking about.

Jason Wurth.....127 million to play outfield in Washington. Now, complain about that guy. Nah....you won't complain.You people who don't know jack about football kill me criticizing and accessing Albert's skill level. Ya'll don't have a clue as to how good this guy is. That's the Skins lost and somebody's gain.

Posted by: kentonsmith | January 20, 2011 3:58 PM | Report abuse

Albert can go. I don't care where. He isn't a team player and he is not interested in developing himself to be the best player he can be.

All he had to do was get into shape and follow some instructions. Instead he was a fat, lazy, drama queen that fought the establishment that overpaid him.

He created a bad name for himself, a horrible legacy, and he might latch onto another team, but it will be at a much lower price with a fatter waistline - his best days are far behind him.

That's 3 of 16
How many are 34+ like McOld? Zero

Of the 4 final teams, how many even have a QB that's over 30? Zero

And how many have recycles head coaches like Shanny? Zero

How many have fired GM's and fired head coaches from someplace else? Zero

And how many have Fat Al and his problems? None

Point proven at the hot mess and how DC, as usual, signed the wrong guy with problems.

Albert was in shape. He used a personal trainer to assure that. But, stupid Shanny was more pissed that Albert didn't show up to his OTA camp and had the 300 pounder running burners. What kind of sense did that make? Stupidity!!! Sad thing about it is you folks who don't know jack about football still allege he was out of shape. He was not. He just couldn't pass Shanny's BS "sprintfest". Something DeAngelo Hall said he couldn't pass either. Albert was out of shape....Shanahan was just grandstanding trying to impress folks who get a rush off of seeing athletes humbled. To me it doesn't matter. I want victories.
Shanny was just trying to make Albert look bad and to me it backfired!! Shanny was the one that looked bad. To make matters worst he says Albert wasn't good enough and only played him 10 plays a game. Hmmmmm lets see...we go from a top 5 defense to dead last.

You folks kill me. You are all in denial. Albert is cool...he's not the problem. Shanahan is the problem. But....since he's the "Man"....the "authority" figure here....The "alpha male"....you guys call the Black man a thug and let Shanny off the hook. What is thug about Albert? Me thinks that's just racist. This whole hip hop Gen X Black Ghetto Thug stereotypes are for the birds!! Albert SEEMS to be more intelligent that Shanny to be honest.

You're absolutely right about McNabb's ability to break the passing record. It's no coincidence that he was yanked just before passing for 4,000 yards and possibly evening out his touchdown to interception ratio. UGH! Don't get me started... this is the off-season!

I think what you are missing is that the skins record would have been worse without the strong management of Shanny. By disciplining Big Al he sent a message which got the team to buy in and play hard. Ok...were they good? No. Were they bad? Yeah. But they certainly would have been worse if Big Al had gotten to be a cancer in my opinion. You saw a team with no real talent battle every week. Don't discount that please.

There were two QB's in this year's playoffs who were 34+ - Hasselbach (Seattle), who was 35+ in the playoffs and Manning (Indy), who is eight months older than McNabb.

"Then the dummies here traded picks for Vick's successor, which many other dummiers applauded when the deal was made. I discredited the trade then. Why? McNabb was too old, just like Dan Dummy likes his coaches, GM's and players."

Redskins did not trade for Vick's successor (who would be Matt Ryan at Atlanta- as he succeeded Vick as QB there). Butthole morrisday1 obviously is so godawfulstupid that he does not know the difference between predecessor and successor. What a frickin' BOZO!

___________________________________________

Bad players always battle. They don't have skill; if they lack effort, too, they're out of the league. But battling bad players still lose. If you want to WIN, get good players and get them to play hard. Santonio Holmes is a good example. Bad dude? Maybe, but he's in the AFC championship and a whole lot of "class individuals" and "battlers" aren't.

Shanahan, in his way, is no better than Rich Kotite. Both of them believed in their system over the quality of their rosters. (I'll never forget how Kotite got some guy who was laying bricks to play QB "because he knew the system". Eagles, I think, went winless rest of the way.) Shanny's an OK coach; he's far from the best in the NFL. He can't win without players, like most coaches. There are 32 teams; talent is scarce, and the salary cap makes you pay for talent evaluation mistakes.

This generation is a freaking joke....put your hat on sideways, pull your pants down around your knees, and get a gold grill put in your mouth. You can take the boys out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the boys.....

Anyone with a brain knows Albert would be a beast again playing in the 4-3 with the coach that got the most out of him. I could honestly see him transforming the Eagles defense into an elite one. Say what you want abotu ALbert but Shanahan is as much to blame. Shanahan's ego is too big. He has been a loser without Elway and Davis.

Only a matter of time before Shanny and his little boy and Haslett are fired. They are going nowhere. This team is garbage. All the Haynesworth anger sounds like management propaganda. He sucks - are you kidding me?? The 3-4 sucks. This defense full of nice guys is one of the worst in the league! Skins fans are beginning to sound like Wizards fans. Losers.

"I owe Coach Wash pretty much everything," Haynesworth told the Tennessean. "If my deal was $100 million or whatever, then Washburn deserves $90 million"

Some guys will try anything to lower their child support payments.

I suggest we keep AH. No way we let him got to Philly.

Leaving aside the football issues / revenge factor of AH playing the 'Skins twice a year, I just couldn't have AH living in the land of cheese-steaks on my conscience.

The guy would be a cardiac arrest, waiting to happen.

The last Haynesworth quote in this piece goes to show he needs someone to be in is face pretty much all the time -- not a passive-aggressive, manipulative type like Shanahan.

Trade Haynesworth to Philly for Kolb! Duh!

I guess Albert is positioning himself to sign there for the league minimum. With what Dumb Dan has paid him and still owes him, why not?
Please Dan, stay out of personnell decisions. It is clear you are a wannabee athlete who wants to rub elbows and be buddy/buddy with pro players. Enough. Hopefully you've learned something and can control yourself from irresponsible and impulsive personnell moves YOU'VE made.

Wow, only in America can you have some absolute moron say, "If my deal was $100 million or whatever........." Most Americans that have to WORK for a living would be ecstatic with the "whatever" portion of meathead's salary.

The only reason Haynesworthless likes Philadelphia is because someone said the words "Philly Steak Sandwich" in a single sentence.

D.C. ain't much anymore, but it would certainly be an improvement with FATSO LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Buy a piano crate, put him in it, take it to the Post Office and see if "If it fits it ships" still works!

If Vinny was here, I'd be worried they would trade him to Philthy. I have a hard time believing they would do anything to appease AH. Hopefully, Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnati, or Carolina will offer a draft pick for him. Send him to a wasteland!

We are the worst team in any sport, on any continent, including antarctica. We will be last place again next year and on and on and on. Poor coaching, no Wr, no RB, no DL, no OL, fat cooley is a goat, and Landry can't cover Oprah Winfrey without tryiing to club her head off and pose. Speaking of which, where does Moss get that goof ball man lover pose he does after catching a 7 yard bench route. He is hands down the goofiest ma'hunchie after a catch in the history of the league bar none.

After witnessing Haynesworth's conduct during 2010, I can't believe the idiots out there who still refer to him as a great athlete and good guy. He deliberately tanked his 2010 season and in the process, hurt the team. He is the worst the NFL has to offer.

Posted by: packridge1 | January 22, 2011 10:36 AM | Report abuse

Fat Al isn't the victim in this whole mess, neither is Shanny. Both of them are the problem. Shanny should've cut bait w/ Fat Al last year, but he didn't. Shanny also should've gotten over the whole Fat Al thing after training camp, again he didn't. That's where he screwed up with the players and the franchise. Fat Al's not innocent either. He's the player, and players don't tell the team what kind of scheme they should run. Neither do they agree to play a position, take the team's money, and then act like a spoiled baby not wanting to change positions. It was simple, take the money and change positions, or leave the money on the table and go somewhere else. He had a choice and he chose the money. When he took the money he said that he would change positions. Fat Al didn't live up to the contract since he's been here, and Shanny, in year 1, didn't live up to his contract. Now they just need to part ways. If that means trading him to Philly and getting something in return. Like Nike says, "Just do it."

What cracks me up is that in about 2 years when Snyder fires the whole lot of coaches and hires a new coaching regime, the folks who are today blaming our losses on McNabb and Haynesworth will be correctly blaming the Shanahan administration.

The Skins fans blame the players for losses over and over again, and when the coaches leave...we blame the coach. See, if it was the coach all along and we're too busy blaming the players, then it is us who is consistently laying blame at the wrong feet.

For several years we blamed Campbell while all along it was Zorn who was the nincompoop. Horrible game management, taking forever to get the plays in, just plain bad choice of plays. Now Campbell is playing a respectable game out in Oakland and Zorn is QB coach or OC? He was never supposed to be in that position to begin with. Funny.

Ultimately, it's the fact that the core of our team (offensive and defensive lines) isn't really all that good. The hidden rule of being a GM is unknown (or an enigma) to this front office. The rule is that "if you pick well at the lines, it will mask your bad position picks".

You can pick an average QB, but if the line gives him a decent running game and a little time in the pocket...he'll develop into a manageable QB - even if he was just OK in college. You can pick an average DB, but if the defensive line is keeping the opposing QB flustered, he's going to throw errant passes and/or you won't have to cover your man for long periods of time.

If you pick well at the lines, it will mask your bad position picks. Remember that. And when you DO pick a stand out position player...he will shine and you (the GM) will look like a genius who has had a long track record of success.

Haynesworth and McNabb are the two best players on a team with bad lines. Our coach is an idiot. If your IQ is over 100 you'll agree with that today. If your IQ is below 100, you'll agree in two years. One cannot watch this game with any speck of intelligence and fail to see that.

It's great to see fellow 'Skins fans know what's going on at Redskins' Park. If you look at the big picture, I think Snyder finally did the smart thing and relinquished control of the football team. Unfortunately, he didn't read Stefan Fastis' book, and he gave the team to a guy who runs things the same way Snyder does; a complete ego-maniac who is blinded by his belief that his way is always correct. There is no other way to explain the 3-4, the embarrassing benching of McNabb (embarrassing for the team as much as McNabb), and the handling of Haynesworth (who is a baby, no doubt, but an incredibly talented baby). I don't even watch Shanahan's press conferences because every word could be a lie.
If you were a veteran player, and you saw what happened in 2010, would you want to come here and play for this coach? Could you trust this coach?
Obviously, Shanahan gets at least one more year. And I hope I'm wrong about everything, and that he's the genius that everyone hoped for, and I look like an idiot. But I said it was a bad hire from the beginning, and all signs continue to point in that direction.
I still love the team, though, and will rout for them every week.
Hail 'Skins!

I agree with most of ya'll abt Shanny. I don't think Shanny is the long term answer at coach. I felt when lil prince Danny and Bruce hired Shanny it was the biggert mistake they could've made. Shanny does have an incredibly large ego, but so do most of the coaches in the NFL, at least the successful ones. It'll take another hopefully for the lil prince to see the error of their ways. What should we do?

That's the question. I felt the best coach to have hired would've been Russ Grimm. He was a successful lineman for the Skins when the team was successful, and he's been a very, very hot coach on the rise over the last few years. He's young and successful, plus he understands the Skins legacy, the NFC East, and he's been on a team that has been to a SB recently. Look at the 4 teams in the Championship games this weekend, none of them are recycled coaches. All of them are first time coaches, that were young a** kickers when they were hired. They were all highly thought to be in the top tier of coordinatorswhen they were hired.

Hiring Grimm wouldn't have to mean another shift to defense because AZ runs a 3-4. He's also coached in the Steeler organization, so he knows a thing or 2 abt stability, structure, and discipline. He would come in with skins on the wall, both as a player and coach. He's well respected in the league, and he would bring energy, vigor, stability, respect, and discipline to the club. He would come in with a clean slate, and increase the trust between the players and the organization. Plus he brings a hardnosed, hide-tanning, take no prisoners mentality that s definitely missing from our team. No longer would we have coach that doesn't understand what beating everyone in the NFC East, especially the cowgirls, not only means to the team, but us fans.

As far as Shanny goes, no coach in NFL history has won a SB with 2 teams. Hopefully the lil prince will come to his senses and rid the franchise of the Shanny family during this offseason. If not this offseason, then next yr. Whenever it happens we can start singing hale to the Redskins with pride again. Hale to the Redskins future, hopefully it comes sooner rather than later.

Vick and Haynesworth on the same team...criminals on both sides of the ball. Seems pretty fitting for Philly. Vick may have gotten past his issues, but once AH smells those cheesesteaks...ah man...it's all over for him. He'll balloon up, be in worse "football shape" than he was for even this season, and then feel the wrath of the fans up there. He'll get to know what the Brotherly "Love" is all about. They'll boo his @$$ so hard, throw their drinks on him, spit on him, and trash talk him way worse than he got this year.
His career is over. End of story. He's done too much damage to his credibility now and has become more of a liability to a team than what he's delivered most of his career (barring 2 great contract year seasons).
Vick's deal had nothing to do with on the field or coaching dispute issues. The gamble of going with him was far less.

If they trade Fat Albert in the division, they deserve what they will get.

A backup QB finishing the season after the first Eagles-Redskins game.

In a 4-3 with his favorite 'take no BS from you' coach, he will wreak havoc. I'd rather pay him to not play, than have him in the division. treat him like Sean Gilbert and let him watch football from his couch if they can't find a team outside of the division.

I was behind the Shanny's regime 100% until he dissed McNabb, a decent person. You need a leader to motivate men with varying temperaments. We don't need ego and aggrandizement.

Ok, If Kyle was the QB, RB, or even WR coach that would be fine but to be a coordinator is definitely conflict of interest in the whole scheme of things. Daddy is always going to back son over players, Kyle must go!

"What is thug about Albert?"

He intentionally stepped on a prone guy's face while wearing cleats after the victim's helmet came off, and after the whistle blew, and never apologized. That's not even fighting, it's just assault. He should have been arrested. I don't go out of my way to watch football anymore. Al is big fat part of the reason why.
