Haynesworth, Gurode say incident is history

When the Redskins signed Albert Haynesworth, you knew there'd be a whole new wrinkle to Dallas Week, thanks to that 2006 incident in which Haynesworth, playing for Tennessee, stomped on Andre Gurode.

Haynesworth discussed that incident as well as others involving anger management with Jason Reid and, last winter, told him:

"There was nothing I could do but just take responsibility for it, take a look at myself and just try to be" a better person, Haynesworth said. "Talking about it [with a counselor] really gave me a chance to open up. I look back at it and . . . it's almost like I wasn't the one doing it. It was all in, like, slow motion. I don't even remember a lot of what happened. But it was me. I did it, and it's hard to accept that you did something like that. It was just a really hard time. It was a really hard year for a lot of reasons."

Gurode is taking the high road, too, writes Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News:

"It's something that happened in the past, and we'll move forward," Gurode said Wednesday.

So we'll see what Sunday, and Haynesworth's tender ankle, brings.

Hey, if you want the true master, get Jon Gruden. That guy turned Rich Gannon into the league MVP (really....Rich Gannon), won a Super Bowl with Brad Johnson, and took Chris Simms to the playoffs (seriously, Chris Simms).

Zorn surrounded himself with similar individuals, even pulling with only experience in the college rank. If Grimm was to be a candidate, I'd want to know that his staff will be loaded with an experienced OC and play caller given Grimm's lack of experience in that area.

I love how the story of Russ Grimm and this legendary tale of his 1st day as a coach are taking shape. I heard it was the biggest monster truck of all time, and he did run some of them over….he got it behind the blocking sled and made them do drills against his truck. If they couldn’t push the sled and his truck back he ran them over. Tre’ Johnson was the only guy who could move the sled. It was epic.

Dolphins' Ronnie Brown out for year

MIAMI -- Ronnie Brown's season has ended with an injury -- again.
The Miami Dolphins' leading rusher was placed on injured reserve Wednesday because of a right foot injury suffered in Sunday's victory over Tampa Bay.

A fifth-year pro, Brown missed the final nine games of the 2007 season with a right knee injury.

How's that Auburn Tiger class of '05 looking now?:

Cadillac Williams
Jason Campbell
Ronnie Brown

Ben Grubbs and Marcus McNeil--two linemen who came out the following years--look like the guys the smart folks fixated on.

And ain't ya' glad the fins got some bad karma headed their way for a chance?

I wonder how Jason Taylor is loving 3-5 with less pay than what he would've gotten in DC for the same team record.

I agree with the people who said let's hire Russ Grimm, just imagine how physical our team would play on both sides of the ball, the o-line would be much much better,our running game would be less stretch plays and more power running.If Gibbs comes back as VP of Football Operations(Same role as Bill Parcells) I would imagine Gibbs pulling for a Russ Grimm type hire, the only knock if Gibbs was to return as VP of Football Operations he would lobby for the resigning of Jason Campbell since he did draft Jason.

I disagree. The only person who should be hiring the next HC for the Skins should be the new GM (fire vinny!), who is hired by a new President of Football Operations (PFO). If that GM hires Grimm, great, but the current FO needs to be dismantled.

Otherwise, we may as well keep the same staff for nothing will change.

At the risk of sounding like a Redcoat proxy, Moe, why would we as Redskin fans wish bad karma on the Dolphins, especially in the form of an injury? For the Jason Taylor trade?

That debacle was always on the Redskins' front office, not on the Fins. What were they supposed to do, give back the draft picks we stupidly gave them?

Just saying that I don't think the Fins deserve any animosity up here. They're not on the schedule this year, and we sure ain't playin' them in the Super Bowl... and the last time we did, we beat 'em.

For once I will be positive. I like Russ Grimm as HC. He should have been the choice (2) seasons ago. My only question is why has he been passed up so many times over the last few years for a HC opportunity. I would have rather gone through the growing pains with Russ (2) seasons ago than Zorn. But I would take Russ over Haslett, Fossil, Green, Garrett, Nolan, Mooch, Mora, Grilliams, Saunders, April, Gray, Blatche, C. Weiss, Jim Harbaugh, B. Schottenheimer, and Pete Carmichael Jr.

Pete Carmichael Jr the Saints O-Coordinator is a former Skins coach. I'm a little intrigued by Jim Harbaugh but I think he needs a little more seaosning in college. I know that history has proven that college to the NFL coaches don't work but Jim played in the league for a long time and he runs a pro style system at Stanford. I'd definitely listen to him and maybe bring him along as a coordinator or on the offensive staff.

I would not want anyone on this list at all. Saunders and Grilliams are no way in hell, mainly b/c they have been here and probably feel slighted by Snyder.

Blatche is here and I think will retire, but I dont like him personally as a head coach.

The rest have not proven enough in my eyes to get this position, that really needs to be someone with proven track record that the players will listen to.

I too wonder why Russ has not gotten any real looks, but I read once that he does not interview well, not a great one on one person to chat, serious football guy like a Coughlin.

I thought I read something that Harbaugh is signing a huge extension to stay with Stanford.

2. This "rivalry" means next to nothing for the city of Dallas. The Redskins have played themselves into a position of insignificance in the NFC East. As Mike Wise said, while it may be "Dallas Week" in Washington it ain't "Washington Week" in Dallas.

IRVING — It was a play Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode wishes had never happened and one he had hoped to forget.

Plastic surgery removed the scars. The years had put the memory in the recesses of his mind.

But as soon as defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth left the Tennessee Titans to sign a record seven-year, $100 million contract with the Washington Redskins last spring, Gurode knew he wouldn’t be able to avoid the topic.

Talk would return to what might be the dirtiest play of the past 20 years in the NFL if not longer.

"I expected that when he signed with the Redskins and we played them that it was going to be brought up," Gurode said.

The play was early in the third quarter, a 5-yard touchdown run by Dallas’ Julius Jones in the Cowboys’ 45-15 victory on Oct. 1, 2006. Gurode’s helmet came off and he was on his back. Haynesworth, standing over him, first kicked Gurode in the head and then scraped his cleats across Gurode’s face and forehead.

Haynesworth was suspended five games and fined $190,000 by the NFL. It was the longest suspension ever for on-field actions.

Former Cowboys fullback Daryl Johnston, who was calling the game for Fox that day, still shudders when recalling the play..

"I have never seen anything like it," Johnston said. "I have seen violent collisions. I’ve never seen anything in that element — anger, frustration and intent to hurt. I was taken aback."

Gurode was never bitter, never complained. He didn’t miss a game and hasn’t missed a beat, using it as a stepping stone to a Pro Bowl career.

Gurode has made three Pro Bowls since the incident. Twice he has lined up against Haynesworth in those games.

But Sunday’s game against the Redskins will be the first time since the incident he has played Haynesworth in a game that means something.

"I think that situation is behind us," Gurode said. "It’s something that happened years ago. He doesn’t focus on it. I don’t focus on it. We just moved forward and continue to play football. You can’t let what happened in the past define who you are."

Gurode’s teammates have been impressed by his response to the incident.

"Anytime something like that happens, I think just how he handled himself in the whole situation. I think you have respect for him," said tight end Jason Witten, who saw the blood coming out of Gurode’s forehead that day. "He’s a mauler inside, and he’s been that way for a long time. He just played better and better and that could have set him back, but he didn’t allow that to be an excuse for him."

Linebacker Bradie James also respects Gurode for the way he has handled himself.

"He might not say anything about it, but he’s probably looking forward to playing Haynesworth after that," James said.

You know, you're right. The rivlary just isn't the same as it once was. I would recommend the Redskins do a little something down in Dallas to stir things up. I would recommend that Campbell throw a rocket on the first play right to Wade Philips' head, but Campbell's so inaccurate he would probably take out a cheerleader or something. Maybe the sure thing is for Landry to hit Romo five yards out of bounds, Hall will get in a shouting match with Wade Philips, and then Haynesworth throws Gurode to the turf and stomps him once more for old times' sake. That sounds like something that couldn't possibly happen, doesn't it?

BTW, has anyone ever noticed how as the years have gone by Wade Philips has looked more and more like the Sta-Puf marshmallow man?

Personally I find the "Tony Homo" moniker a bit sophomoric, but so what? The Cowboys players, fans, ownership, & history deserve to be mocked, made fun of, and trashed at every turn.

And so what if Dallas doesn't have a "Washington Week"? The Cowboys haven't won a playoff game in 13 pathetic seasons. They are the most overhyped team in the NFL each and every year.

Oh, and the Redskins have won 5 of the last 8 games against the Cowboys. Let's make it 6 of 9 on Sunday.

2. This "rivalry" means next to nothing for the city of Dallas. The Redskins have played themselves into a position of insignificance in the NFC East. As Mike Wise said, while it may be "Dallas Week" in Washington it ain't "Washington Week" in Dallas.

Pffft. Just goes to show that Mike Wise still has much to learn about this rivalry. If he thinks Dallas fans don't get geared up to beat the Redskins, he's wrong.

The teams certainly don't hold the rivalry up as much as fans do anymore, but I don't see how Dallas - the fans or the team - could view Washington as "unworthy" of their attention. Aferall, Dallas hasn't won anything in almost as long as the Skins, and actually has less playoff wins than Washington does over the past decade and a half.

Dallas is consitently overhyped, and their team lacks passion and focus. Exhibit A would be last week against the Packers.

Not bad getting a QB prospect for essentially free.

Bills sign Brohm

The Buffalo Bills signed quarterback Brian Brohm, the team announced Thursday.

Brohm had been on the Green Bay Packers' practice squad. He was a second-round draft pick by the Packers in 2008 out of Louisville.

Under NFL rules, a team can sign a player off another club's practice squad by placing him on the 53-man roster.

The Bills released quarterback Gibran Hamdan.

Russ Lande, War Room scouts
Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2009 - 3:29 p.m. ET
Sporting News draft expert Russ Lande and his team of former NFL scouts produce their 2010 mock draft, with the order based on current records (*-underclassman):

1. Rams: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
The Rams have whiffed on two recent first-round D-linemen (Adam Carriker, Chris Long). Suh is an impact interior defender who would upgrade the defense immediately.


2. The Browns need someone to make plays, and Dez Bryant would fit the bill.2. Browns: Dez Bryant*, WR, Oklahoma State
The Browns' offense is historically bad, scoring only five touchdowns in nine games. A big part of the problem is a lack of playmakers.

3. Lions: Gerald McCoy*, DT, Oklahoma
The Lions must upgrade the pass rush and interior defensive line, and McCoy is capable of making game-changing plays routinely.

4. Buccaneers: Eric Berry*, CB, Tennessee
CB Ronde Barber turns 35 in April, and S Sabby Piscitelli is not a quality starter. Berry is an elite athlete who can start anywhere in the secondary.

5. Chiefs: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
Okung would start at right tackle early before replacing inconsistent LT Branden Albert.

6. Raiders: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
LG Robert Gallery, an average blocker, is the team's best lineman. Williams has the size, strength and athleticism to help QB JaMarcus Russell make strides in '10.

7. Seahawks: Bryan Bulaga*, OT, Iowa
LT Walter Jones' Hall of Fame career could be over, and the team must do everything it can to keep QB Matt Hasselbeck healthy in his later years.

8. Redskins: C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
RB Clinton Portis is approaching the 30-year-old wall, and Ladell Betts is best suited to be a backup. Spiller, with his running and receiving skills, could revitalize QB Jason Campbell's career.

9. Bills: Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
Kindle is an explosive athlete who could start at outside linebacker and move up to rush end in passing situations.

10. Titans: Cameron Heyward*, DE, Ohio State
Heyward says he'll return to Ohio State for his senior year, but we think he'll change his mind once he realizes he'd be a top-15 pick. DEs Kyle Vanden Bosch and Jevon Kearse both are north of 30.

on the draft, Skins need to take best player available at a position of significant need. Going into 2010, that appears to include much of the OL, RB, CB.

Its also possible it could be LB with Fletcher's age plus Orakpo likely going back to DE and WR. QB and FS are also possible uses for the top pick based on what happens in the offseason.

After round 1, go OL the rest of the way.

Witten on Skins: 'This is the Super Bowl for them'
November, 17, 2009 Nov 17

The Cowboys didn't need to watch film of the Washington Redskins' upset of the Denver Broncos to know they'd be in for a fight against the NFC East's last-place team.


The Redskins have won five of the last eight games against the Cowboys.


"They've always given us the blues," linebacker Bradie James said. "They'll be ready and we have to get ready."


Cowboys-Redskins used to be perhaps the NFL's most bitter rivalry. It's probably the only one that featured a funeral wreath being thrown into the loser's locker room, as legend has it ex-Dallas DE Harvey Martin did at a crazy Cowboys comeback win at Texas Stadium in Dec. 1979.


There's more venom at Valley Ranch toward the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles these days, since those division rivals have ended the Cowboys' season the last couple of years. But the Cowboys realize that the Redskins still take the rivalry very seriously, so they better match that intensity.


"We know this is the Super Bowl for them," tight end Jason Witten said. "That's the type of mentality they have."

Give me a break, Witten. This is an NFC East game, and you better come prepared. It's not like the Redskins are completely done. If they beat your sorry team and the Eagles, the NFC East is going to look pretty damn even.

Oh, and Baysox, "encure" isn't a word. AND, you shouldn't talk smack about losing to winless teams. The Cowboys lost to the Packers one week after they lost to the last winless team in the NFL.

The Baysox? Really?

If the OT are gone, and the skins can't trade back, I'd rather Spiller than a rookie QB.

Depending on who's available they'll have needs at OLB, CB, FS, OG and C as well. I don't know how good Spiller is but he's listed at 195 lbs. That's kinda small for a RB behind a crappy OL.

Haynesworth - Anybody who kicks a Cowboy in the head is welcome here.

Take Fargas. Leads the team in carries in 2009; averages 4.1 ypc over career and was a player at USC. And he's Huggy Bear's son.

Chia,

I see your point, but true progress would be when everyone can speak their mind, and the words used have no power because those they are used against don't let them stick.

Asking everyone to zip their traps so as not to be offensive is only a short term solution that kicks the long term problem down the road, and is akin to cleaning your room by sweeping the mess under the bed. Just because people aren't saying it, doesn't mean they don't believe it. Better to have it all out there for discussion so we can deal with our demons, than silence all speech, however bigoted, on the subject.

joking aside Harbaugh would not be a terrible choice if we wanted to go after a college coach

ga8085: I don't think the experts have it right. If Colt McCoy is there when the Skins pick in the first round, he's a Redskin. They won't re-sign Jason, and they've got no "QB of the future" behind him. I don't especially like the "big three" QBs this year. Colt isn't consistent enough, Bradford's injured shoulder scares me, and Tebow's playing style and injury history turn me off to him as a high pick. Still if the #1 LT and CB are both off the board, maybe they'll almost certainly go QB. And I think that means Colt. Which would mean they lead the league in QBs named Colt.

Can you remind us which NFL franchise is run as a nonprofit, a public service? Or even can you name one where the owner sets out to lose money?

I think the point is that the Skins will make a tidy profit even if they field a team of Pop Warner all stars. Nobody begrudges Snyder making money, just want a bit more energy put into actually winning, which is the point of playing the game.

I gotta say, listening to Matt Millen on Thursday Night Football tonight, I tuned in late and thought it was Brian Baldinger... or "Baldy" as he likes to be called.

I kept saying, "God, I can't stand this idiot!" and "Why do they have to have someone stupid in the booth all the time?!"

(especially when the refs wouldn't let Carolina snap the ball early on a 3rd and 1... He gave credit to the Umpire... because "it's their job to make sure the Defense has time to get their subs in")

UnSPEAKably ignorant. Anyway, Delhomme threw a TERRIBLE Int on the play - bad throw, bad decision, etc.

And then, I saw it was Matt Millen. HOW. HOW in a MILLION YEARS, could you let somebody SOOOOO obviously not very cerebral be your GM?!?!

...and then, I remembered... we got Vinnie.

Oh, yeah.

I was at the stadium getting ready to watch the Skins and we were eating some over-priced food when the Titans-Cowboys was on one of the screens and Haynesworth stomped that guy's face.

I was the ONLY ONE who stood up and cheered.

I'm not proud of it, but it was a knee-jerk reaction born of Cowboy Hatred Syndrome, with which I am afflicted.

As I looked around the room, everybody had the same look of "You're such a disgusting person"... the same look my wife and everybody else at my table had on their faces as they looked at me.

Anyway, I also said, but more quietly, "I wish we had that guy on the Redskins."

and now we do. So, that's the story.

maybe you had to be there. It was crazy.

Welp. Anyway.
