Albert Haynesworth says he'll play Sunday

In his most extensive comments of the season, Albert Haynesworth said "everything's been fine" between the controversial defensive lineman and Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan, and Haynesworth expects to play in Sunday's game at the St. Louis Rams. But in a radio appearance Saturday afternoon, Haynesworth conceded that this season is off to an unusual start.

"It's been real crazy," Haynesworth said on 106.7 The Fan's "The Kevin and Rock Show." "I've never seen anything like this."

Prior to Saturday's radio appearance, Haynesworth had limited his media availability to postgame comments. Dan Steinberg has all the details and much more of the comments, but let's at least share the detailed explanation to date Haynesworth has shared of the rift that grew between him and organization in the offseason.

While Haynesworth said he has come around on the team's new 3-4 defense and feels he has more opportunities to chase the quarterback than a year ago, he characterized his absence from the team's offseason workouts as a stand that was based on principals.

"I guess in this world, we don't have a lot of people with backbones. Just because somebody pay you money don't mean they'll make you do whatever they want. I mean, that means everything is for sale. I mean, I'm not for sale," Haynesworth said. "Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but just because, that don't mean I'm for sale or a slave or whatever.

"We agreed upon coming to that [contract] that I'd play defensive tackle and not nose guard and all that other stuff. I was signing with a 4-3 team," he continued. "It was a lot of promises and stuff like that. But now, it's been better, dealing with [defensive coordinator Jim] Haslett, and we run a lot of 4-3 stuff and you'll see that tomorrow.

"I really get to get after the quarterback more than I did last year. Last year it wasn't a focus on sacks and stuff like that. A lot of people say well how could you say that, we had 40 sacks. I mean, a lot of that just happened just because it just happened. Like [Brian Orakpo] getting 11 sacks. I mean, the way we focus on pass rushing now is a heck of a lot better than what we did last year, and you should see more sacks from that, hopefully, especially if we're up."

Again, check out Steinberg for more.

I hope this is your version of sarcasm. AH signed the biggest contract in NFL history for a defensive player and this was with a team coached by Jim Zorn, a GM named Vinny Cerrato, and an owner named Danny Snyder and he didn't expect any turnover?

Let the man play and do his talking on the field. Shanny's continuing tit for tat is helping no one, and is not improving his own chances of being back next year. Don't forget, a coach's job is to manage his players, and quite a few have done just fine in that department with Haynesworth. How's that working out for you, Shanny? A bad holding call away from 0-2?

Why not a compromise that can benefit all with Haynesworth? Why not play a 4-3 at the beginning of drives and switch to 3-4 when opponents cross the 50 yard line? Why not put the challenge to Haynesworth to stop opponent's drives before the 50 yard line otherwise we switch to 3-4 and he will have to play the nose? Wouldn't this bring the best out of Haynesworth, Carter, and every player still struggling with the 3-4?

No one except the media gives a sh!t about Albert. You watch too much ESPN (TMZ) if you think Albert is the face of this team. Just because someone's dumb ass remarks make it on TV does NOT mean they are the face of a franchise. It simply means they are the distraction of the media.

Albert has been quiet for a few days and as soon as he sniffs playing time in the air he runs to the media and starts making waves. like most I wanted AH to be a big part of this defense/team but over the months it has become clear that he is only trying to undermind the burgandy and gold and make himself appear as the victim. I am a chef but if in a crunch i was told to mop a bathroom floor for some ungodly reason i can't claim slavery tactics and raise a big stink. football is his job. when he punched that multi million dollar time clock he agreed to represent his company. it's time to toe the line

Uh, yeah, Albert, you sold your services under a contract in which you agree to conform to team policy, procedures, schedules and other requirements.

Being a professional means holding up your end of the bargain regardless the amount of money paid on the contract. It means being honorable.

A contract doesn't make anyone a slave to any organization. It is actually your protection and guarantee that you are not treated in any fashion that you can't accept. By signing, you accept their expressed treatment. If you don't like what is stated in the contract, then you don't sign and you find someone offering a contract and conditions that you can accept.

So you signed. And you took the money. Now, just be honorable, do your part and stop making unjustified accusations.

The Redskins probably designed a "hybrid" 4-3/3-4 like AZ used to get to the playoffs and superbowl. Even Pittsburgh adopted some of the ideas that came out of AZ.


So, Haynesworth is correct in his analysis. I'm just surprised it took him this long to realize it ... still its a problem for many of the guys playing linebacker and db to adapt to it. They are still trying to figure the new system out. And since its new so are the coaches.

Agreed. No need to bring TW back until he's close to 100% and hopefully DT can make his case for playing time on the field. Paulsen although a rookie is our best blocking TE and if the Skins can't get the run game going against the Rams (4.7 avg per rush, both DTs are out) then we have a huge problem.

Which means Logan Paulsen is active.

I'll be very interested to see lines up at right end in FG/EP.

Dallas went on for two 4th down conversions on their opening possession. They were 1 for 2. Ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Good move sitting TW and AA. I would like to see Paulsen on offense helping out as an additional blocker particularly in the run game.

No, this has nothing to do with TW. It's a good thing because peeps up here can (1) pile the hate on Heyer, (2) complain about Vinny some more, (3) blast "Shanallen" for not getting a better backup, and (4) ask why we don't bring back Levi Jones.
