Albert Haynesworth's brother killed in motorcycle crash

Albert Haynesworth's brother was killed Thursday night in a motorcycle crash, according to Nashville news reports.

Nashville police confirmed that Haynesworth's brother, Lance McCoy, 23, was traveling at high rate of speed when he struck a car and was killed about 9 p.m., according to the Nashville Tennessean. He was pronounced dead at Vanderbilt Medical Center. According to News Channel 5 in Nashville, police say witnesses reported that McCoy was going around 100 mph and was weaving in and out of traffic when he crashed into a car. No other injuries were reported.

Haynesworth was one of three boys raised by Linda Haynesworth, along with McCoy and Tyriom Edwards, in Hartsville, S.C.

It was not immediately clear whether Haynesworth was at Redskins Park on Friday. A team spokesman said it was a personal matter and Coach Mike Shanahan would address it after practice.

Haynesworth has appeared in three of the Redskins' four games this season and turned in his best performance in last Sunday's win over Philadelphia. Against the Eagles, he had four tackles -- including one for a loss, batted down one pass and drew two holding penalties from the Philadelphia offensive linemen. He saw increased action, played strong in nickel packages and seemed primed to take on an expanded role in the Redskins' defense moving forward.
Even Shanahan noted Haynesworth's strong play at Philadelphia.

"The more he plays like that, the more he's going to play," Shanahan said earlier this week.

On the season, Haynesworth has eight tackles but is still looking for his first sack.

Whoa. Sad and sobering news for AH and family.

It'll be interesting to see what comes of this for AH. He's become a less-than-human figure in the media and the ready target for jokes and lampooning - not that AH has done much to play that down.

As sad and tragic as this is; it can be the kind of event in someone's life that becomes a turning point for perspective and bringing into focus the things that matter most in life - and those things are not 3-4 vs. 4-3 schemes and trade-demands.

Sometimes just as you overcome one hurdle, life has this sick sense humor by throwing up another 10x more difficult to overcome than the first for it's own amusement.

Sorry to hear about his brother (there is no such thing as "half" when it comes to family). Hopefully this will put things into perspective for Haynesworth as to what's important and what in life is really worth fighting for. The next time he's sulking about playing time or a position, hopefully he'll remember his brother, and how the things we perceive as a big deal really isn't, and the things we consider trivial and insignificant can be the most uplifting in life.

Hear today, gone today.... RIP

I kinda want to be selfish by wanting Haynesworth to play on Sunday, but I totally understand if he can't make it, I couldn't imagine what he's going through right now!

If he does play, I'd hate to be an offensive lineman for the Packers. He could come off the ball like a madman and have an AMAZING game, almost like Favre did on Monday Night against the Raiders a few years ago.

Red said there are no halves in family. I know I'm as close to my half brother and sister as to anyone is to their full blood but I had a roomate in college that never spoke to his and barely knew them. Anyone notice the 3 brothers all have different last names, not that that matters.

Well said. This is unfortunate news for sure and I feel for AH and his family. I really do hope this puts his "troubles" in perspective. For all the millions that sit in his account, no amount of cash can bring back his brother. Hopefully he gets back to just playing football after the grieving. I wonder if he'll play this weekend- not to sound trite or insensitive, but we kinda need him in there if at all possible.

When I was in college/partying days, I would drive around 495 to SE/Navy Yard to some of the clubs down there on Friday nights.

There are stretches of 495 where motorcycle-heads like to gather and ride together in packs.

I'm in a regular car and I'm driving along pushing 80-85 mph. Out of the blue 3-4 rice-rockets would come screaming up on me and pass me like I'm standing still - weaving in-out of traffic, some of them popping wheelies...

I was a pretty reckless dude in college with some of the things I did, but I always thought those cats had a death-wish.

I guess I feel mild remorse for saying last July that I wish AH would be neutered with a rusty fork. I think this will change the way he thinks and plays though; in some way like the team stepped-up in 2007 when ST21 died. You have to channel that emotion into something and pro ball-players are used to using emotion as a tool to excel.

Dont get on a bike if you cant use it responsibly; he could have killed any number of people driving like that.

I guess we'll see. Certainly one could understand if he's not at the game on Sunday.

At the same time, for alot of these pro-ballers, the game is their sanctuary, and playing helps them keep their mind/lives on track.

I still remember the MNF game the day after Brett Favre's dad died, and he lit it up for like 300+ and a bunch of TDs and then broke down crying after the game.

So while I was making no attempt at an insult or insinuation this loser takes this moment to take a shot at me and then brings up class. He is the epitome of lack of class. He probably has some guilt in his life for some of the things he's done and projects his thoughts and actions onto others. My family has 4 last names in it. Campbell, my half brother and sister Lawrence, and an adopted brother Jurgensen. We also have about 30 foster brothers and sisters over the years with as many names. Not strange that I would comment on the multiple last names since my family has so many for so many different reasons yet this loser immediately assumes that I am making a derogatory remark. Talk about class.

I wouldn't necessary call your class or motives into question, but there is a time and not a time to make "observations". I'm far from PC but it is the time we live in -- people are extra sensitive and offended by others remarks. Sometimes warranted, sometimes not.

I think we all can at least show a little respect and set football and cynicism (for Haynesworth and other posters) aside at least for this thread.

Haynesworth's half-brother killed in accident
By: John Keim
Examiner Staff Writer
10/08/10 11:55 AM EDT

The half-brother of Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was killed Thursday night, according to reports out of Nashville, Tenn. Lance McCoy was killed while riding his motorcycle 100 miles an hour in Madison, Tenn.

McCoy, 23, and Haynesworth were raised by the same mother, Linda Haynesworth and were said to be close.

It’s uncertain if Haynesworth will return from Tennessee for Sunday’s game vs. Green Bay.

I see your left tackle Bent Williams is getting ready to get back on the field. I'm sure McNabb's ankle is already throbbing in anticipation of the prized rookie blowing another assignment and getting McNabb's leg nearly torn off him again. LOL!

Hope you enjoyed your one week atop the division. Things are about to change because the Boys are rested up and ready to kick azz and take some names!!

P.S. Good Luck with your scrap heap running back Ryan SoLame.

Hello WaitingGuilty and scampbell1975,

I've read your posts and certainly realize the safest thing for me to do would be to simply avoid entering the fray.

I think WaitingGuilty, you are saying, yes we noticed the three last names, but we can talk about that some other time. For now, Albert is mourning the loss of his brother that apparently was raised in his mom's house w/ Albert.

Scampbell1975 is saying, I know the death is a tough time for Albert, but we can't ignore that we have just been given a glimpse into Albert that we previously did not possess.
And this does contribute to the picture that is Albert Haynesworth.

Apparently Rick Maese determined he wanted to mention it, though it does seem completely unnecessary if one wants to refrain from any mentions of dysfunction in Albert's life. Yet, Rick Maese after thinking it over, determined to bring this to light for all of RI readership. I don't know why Rick did this, but in a sense it is part of the picture that has resulted in Albert Haynesworth that has not felt he needs to "commit" to the Skins schedule though he took the $$$ 21 Million.

I wish Albert the best, and I hope he can help his family financially, and in the mourning w/ his family.

If you feel that strongly, perhaps your beef could be sent not to scampbell, but to Rick Maese himself? Just a suggestion.

I feel sorry for Albert and his family. As a parent, the loss of a child would be devastating. For them, I'm sorry.

I'm trying to figure out what the Redskins are doing with their roster. Everyone - myself included - seemed to think that Keiland Williams would be brought up to the active roster this week. I can't find any evidence that move has taken place. There's plenty of info on Bidwell going to IR and Hunter Smith being signed, so I am speculating that the reason we haven't heard anything is not because of an information blackout at Redskins park, but rather, a move just has not been made. Why? I cannot believe they are going into Sunday's game with just two healthy backs - one of whom has not had a carry as a Redskin.

That's a shocker, isn't it? I wonder how much ao receiver's success is tied to scheme, how much to their abilities, and how much to the coach's utilization of their skills. Lloyd wasn't much when he was here but eventually finds a home where he lights it up. A guy like MArques Colston gets overlooked by darned near every team in the league in the draft and turns out to be a beast... I am just wondering if Armstrong is going to be the guy who thrives in this offense. I hope he is.

This is why I mentioned it was Rick Maese who determined to notify all of us with this information...

"Darwin wins?" You connecting Darwin w/ lack of class? Or perhaps saying Dawin was right, we are not the highest form of creation, but merely all animals who descended from common matter?

I'm trying to figure out what the Redskins are doing with their roster. Everyone - myself included - seemed to think that Keiland Williams would be brought up to the active roster this week. I can't find any evidence that move has taken place. There's plenty of info on Bidwell going to IR and Hunter Smith being signed, so I am speculating that the reason we haven't heard anything is not because of an information blackout at Redskins park, but rather, a move just has not been made. Why? I cannot believe they are going into Sunday's game with just two healthy backs - one of whom has not had a carry as a Redskin.

Practice squad players can practice with the team so it doesn't make a difference when they activate him most likely will be Saturday.

I know we've had our comments about Stompy - but no one deserves this.

I'm so sorry.

New thread please. Word has it JR is working on a Clay Matthews piece.

I'd recommend an Orakpo getting held thread and how the Packers are suspect at OT, but...

My thoughts and prayers are with Albert and his family. No matter what type of nonsense has taken place over the past few months, life is just too short. God bless the family.

As somebody who's jumped all over Haynesworth, well I'm just shutting up. My God.

Didnt know Christopher Walken was a Redskins fan

Posted by: CheyenneWY | October 8, 2010 11:59 AM | Report abuse

Didn't think I could love the guy any more...

As for all the bickering, blithering, blathering and other buffoonery- we're all Skins fans here. Doesn't mean I like you all. Some of you rub me the wrong way, I'm sure I do the same to others. Guilty and Scamp are a dog and a cat that both wear burgundy and gold. To bring up the last name thing was definitely questionable, and because it was a "cat" the "dog", my bro and homie Guilty probably took exception more than he woulda with others.

Let's talk about our DIVISION LEADING Skins, not bog down in petty rivlary. Smoke a peace pipe and move on!!

23 years old...Any of you judges ever do anything stupid at age 23? SHUT YOUR KEYBOARDS up and try acting like a human being for once! Same jerks who jumped into traffic with the " Looks like Sean Taylors past finally caught up with him " take when he was murdered in his own home.

-Now isn't the time to judge, now is the time to have a heart. RIP young man.

How is this sad? This is fortunate. The jackhole was going 100 weaving in and out of traffic? He made a choice to die. He was putting countless innocent people at risk of death. A tragedy would be if he caused another vehicle to crash.

*************************************

Actually, no. Most people don't place others' lives at risk at 23 or any other age. If you can't figure that out at 23, you are a waste of space. This wasn't a harmless prank. And I'm sure it wasn't the first time he did it.

-------------------------------------

Young people do dumb things that's for certain, but to refer to a 23yr olds life cut short as being "fortunate" is beyond reproach and just utterly classless.

Story from 2003 regarding AH and his bro: http://www.tennessean.com/article/20101008/SPORTS01/101008017

Anyone that has any other feeling than condolences for AH and his family is a heartless bastard. I don't care what he has done or not on the filed, the unexpected loss of a family memeber is a tragic thing and not to be taken lightly. Good luck Albert, it will be a tough week for sure. Hope you go take care of business and are able to get past it and move on quickly, but it is different for everyone. Good luck.

Posted by: dbrine1261 | October 8, 2010 3:26 PM | Report abuse

As much as anyone (including me) may have expressed our thoughts against AH about his attitude and efforts on the field
at times - our HEARTS should be open enough to say we're sorry for the loss and grief he and his family are experiencing at this time.

My deepest condolences to him and his loved ones,... I know all too well what that feels like to have a stranger come and call at the door,... telling me and my parents that my younger brothers were killed. It's something no one should ever have to go thru
in this life... no matter what the cause. Life is far too precious
to even worry about a game at this time - and how someone may or may not play it.

May (whatever) God (you believe in) hold you and your family in comfort and grace AH. There ARE tears in heaven and on this earth for you and your loved ones at this time.

Terrible, terrible news. I'm sure Albert H. was very close to his brother. A rotten blow. And to lose him at such a young age.
