Haynesworth sent home for disciplinary reasons

Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was sent home from practice Friday for disciplinary reasons, Coach Jim Zorn said.

"All that will be kept between Albert and I," Zorn said. "He wasn't belligerent or nasty to me, and I wasn't nasty to him. It's just something that needed to be done."

Two players, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Haynesworth was late for a team meeting Friday morning. One added that coaches told Haynesworth not to go out for practice, but that he dressed anyhow.

Haynesworth and Zorn held an animated conversation for around 15 minutes while the team stretched and began practice on an adjacent field. Defensive coordinator Greg Blache briefly joined the meeting, not long before Haynesworth walked back inside the team's facility. He soon drove away from Redskins Park.

Zorn said Haynesworth would play Sunday night against the Cowboys, but he didn't commit to starting the lineman. He would not disclose the nature of Haynesworth's infraction, but said it happened Friday morning.

The defensive tackle signed with the Redskins for a record $41 million guaranteed money last winter, and his season has been marked by several controversies. He's missed three of the team's past five games with ankle injuries, was fined $10,000 after trading blows with Giants running back Brandon Jacobs Monday Night, and ended the night by complaining about his role on the team's defense and the franchise's lack of a leader. Fans and some media members have criticized Haynesworth for appearing winded during several games; he was also limited in Thursday's practice because of what the team described as a leg injury.

Zorn said the incident Friday had nothing to do with Haynesworth's postgame comments Monday. The Redskins face the Cowboys on Sunday night; Haynesworth missed the teams' first meeting Nov. 22 in Dallas.

Thomas doubtful

Devin Thomas missed practice again and will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game, Zorn said.

Truth is, Bruce Allen has said that he will evaluate the redskin team from soup to nuts.

This suggests he might conclude that the present coaching structure should remain in place as upgrading the roster over the next two-three seasons is what the true issue is.

No matter what the rumors say.

You are wasting electrons with a post like this. There was never any way Zornby was coming back before that infamous "trick play" and now there is the possibility that the dud may be gone before the season ends. The only thing keeping his scrawny neck in one piece is that firing him now would make Bruce Allenby look bad.

"Haynesworth sent home for disciplinary reasons"

You get into a fight with B Jacobs.

You come late to practice, get into a fight with the coaches.

Your overall conditioning is such that you need a 'break' during offensive drives that the opponents immediately take advantage of.

$48 million should at least bring some sense of leadership out of a guy.

Right now, Haynesworth is Big Daddy Wilkinson and Sean Gilbert all rolled into one.

Prince Al should still be a titan.

Tennessee lost him, and for right now, are a team on the rise.

He is not missed on the field, trust me.

Albert Haynesworth is half the impact player that, say, Julius Peppers or Ed Reed in his prime was.

Or what Brian Orakpo will be.

Prince Al is another Cerrato-obtained shiny object that, in the full glow of a failing season, has lost it's luster.

By now Tiger must have found that big fat lump of coal that Santy left in his stocking. Let us review the sequence of events that led to naughtyhood for Tiger.

1. Inquirer publishes story about woman who claims to be Tiger's mistress.
2. Tiger rams fire hydrant and tree with SUV in early morning escapade.
3. More women step forward to claim to be Tiger's mistress.
4. Mother-in-law hospitalized with dry heaves.
5. More women step forward to claim to be Tiger's mistress.
6. Tiger apologizes for unspecified infidelities and takes indefinite leave from public life.
7. More woman step forward to claim to be Tiger's mistress.
8. Sponsors drop Tiger. (Be a Tiger!)
9. Tiger linked to PEDs doc.
10. Tiger takes daily roasting from late night talk show hosts. Even adulterer Letterguy!

Obviously in this case Santy had no prob deciding naughtyhood. The only thing missing is love childs and we could yet see lots of little Tigers running around before this sordid spectacle is over.

Although I am not a fan of Zorn's play calling and generally was disgusted that he was given the head coaching job 2 years ago, I do believe that Zorn was handcuffed by Vinny to do some things that needed to be done. I think Zorn is still trying to do his job even though he knows that it is all an act of futility for him keeping his job. Most of his staff - Blache, Gray and others were not picked by him. They have not been effective, loyal or decent, save for Bugel, Smith and Olivedetti. Blache and Gray should be fired forthwith and replaced with their assistants. They are why the defense is terrible and the team is divided.... The defense stopped playing by the third game of the season. Haynesworth spends more time on the sidelines than he does in the games. If there is a lack of leadership, is he pointing to Blache and Gray? The D doesn't spend much time with Zorn. And for that matter, why doesn't Hayensworth step up and be a team leader?
I must say that Zorn comes across as an honest, decent man that has good intentions. The only thing lacking is some knowledge and experience. He has improved Campbell and I am not a Campbell fan. In the last several weeks, JC has shown us he can manage a team and game. Last years rookies are producing. Now he is disciplining players which is long overdue. Haynesworth and Portis have been criticizing Zorn all season (Portis least season as well) with their little comments and they were allowed to get away with it. That was Vinny allowing players to make Zorn look bad. Although I do not want Zorn back as headcoach, there are worse options and I think that Zorn has shown he can learn and certainly cares. Whatever happens, he has earned and deserves every Redskins fan's respect. How, he had to work for Vinny with Blache and Gray and had poor personnel. Zorn, good luck with what ever happens.

$41 million -- he already spent $40 million on cheeseburgers and pie. Too fat and lazy to get in shape or even show up for practice.
Danny and Vinny's formula for success: throw money at yesterday's all-pros until they're so spoiled they're worthless.

My guess is that the big guy actually wanted to play and the "management" insisted he be preserved for the future. Yeah, there is money involved, but he is a great player despite the mumblings of all you fair-weather fans. Good players want to play the game.

As a Redskin fan since 1957, I have never witnessed a coach be so undermined by the assistants, GM and owner. No person could succeed in such a circus. I believe Zorn's demeanor is a tribute to the honorable man that he obviously is. Our team has become a laughing-stock due solely to the actions of an arrogant owner although I believe anyone of us could have done a better job than Cerruto. In terms of re-establishing discipline and focus, Portis, the assistants and the rest of the back-biters should be traded, waived or fired. I genuinely wish Bruce Allen the best because we need his best.

Zorn was another comically bad Vinnie decision (although Zorn can't be blamed as no one - as in zero - would have said no to Vinnie throwing money at him the same way).

But this isn't on Zorn. He's trying to function as a coach as long he has the title. Snyder can fire him - could have fired him - anytime he wants, he's just trying to pull an Al Davis and avoid paying the price (remaining salary). Meanwhile, Zorn has to deal with an even more comically bad Cerrato decision to bring in Haynesworth at a price guaranteed to cause problems.

Vinnie's presents to the Redskins will be felt for years to come.

mistamoe: "Prince Al should still be a titan.
Tennessee lost him, and for right now, are a team on the rise. He is not missed on the field, trust me."

The numbers suggest otherwise. Just picking the three most oft-cited defensive stats, here's how the Titans stack up with last year:

Yards given up per game:
2008: Ranked 7th at season's end
2009: Ranked 26th through 14 games

2008: Ranked 5th (44)
2009: Tied for 19th (28 thru 14 games)

Scoring defense:
2008: Ranked 2nd (14.6)
2009: Ranked 27th (24.8) thru 14 games

Of course, that's not all about Albert. The fact that the team couldn't score in the first half of the year really puts great pressure on a defense (as Redskins fans know). And you can see the improvement in the Titans' defense as their offense improves.

Nonetheless, losing Haynesworth was probably a major blow.

I can't defend Zorn in any way, shape, or form. He has been an embarrasment to this team from day one. His play calling has been awful and cowardly. Not to defend Vinny, but I'm sure he wasn't trying to sabatage the Redskins by hiring Zorn. Zorn is just over his head and lacking the emotion necessary to be a head coach or even a coordinator. As a former athlete, I know that when a coach got into my grill, I turned it up a notch. He is not capable of doing that with his medium sh_t. Blache needs to go as well, he hasn't nearly come close to getting what he should from this defense.
Anyway, Merry Christmas to the Redskin Nation. Hoping you and yours have a healthy and prosperous new year and 2010 brings us something to cheer about on Sunday afternoons.

I really don't understand why anyone defends Zorn. He's classy? If he had any class and any dignity, he would've quit as soon as he was relieved of playcalling duties. The only reason he's still here is bc he wants to collect the rest of his paycheck, and he's willing to cast aside any self respect he may have had. That doesn't sound like class to me. That stupid grin he had on his face when he was asked about that ridiculous fake FG after just getting embarassed on national TV isn;t classy.

Interesting how many people here are criticizing the head coach for disciplining a player, many of of the same people who've criticized the same head coach for not being strong. Interesting how many people,the beginning of last season, had only good words to say of the head coach, comparing him to the greatest coaches of all time, thinking he should be signed to a virtual life-time contract. Only one person here noted that the head coach was given his coaching staff, and didn't have much input in its selection.

And no one's seemed to note that Mr. Haynesworth, the most highly valued player if contract is any indication of value), who criticized the team for no one taking leadership, is the same person that shows up late for a team meeting. Showing up on time, when you're paid to do so, doesn't show leadership but not showing up on time surely shows lack of leadership. You don't think, for all th money you're being paid, for the complaining about lack of leadership from others, that you couldn't leave early enough to be there on time, or call and say why you're going to be late (with a rational reason)?

The team may be better with Mr. Haynesworth, but he hasn't shown much in the way of helping the team. He arrived out of shape; he isn't able to play a full game; he pulls himself out of games; he's easily (maybe questionably, for a player of his 'high value') injured and unable to play in important games; he shows up late; and he questions lack of leadership on the part of others? Isn't there some sense of individual responsibility and initiative? Or isn't he paid for that?

I can understand if this was an issue with Haynesworth, but until today there have been reports that Haynesworth was a problem at Redskins Park. Zorn has the right to lead this team anyway he wants for his last two weeks, but to me this was a poor attempt by Zorn to show Allen that he could be the disciplinarian this team sorely needs. How late was Haynesworth? Couldn't a fine send the same message? Too little too late. For example, Zorn should have sat LL for his poor play, and refusal to make changes in his game. Instead, he allows LL to start in another position only for LL to continue with his poor play.

During the Saints final drive of regulation, Blache sent in Golston#64 for FatAlbert#92 on 2nd or 3rd down and Albert waved him off, sent him back off the field while yelling at the bench. I think the Saints scored on the next play.

The coaches have lost control of these megamillionaire babies. Give us men of character and intelligence. In the long run, they win.[

Can we just turn off Zorn's head set during the next two games and get this season over with? With the exception of the Superbowl and/or the selling of the team, Vinny's resignation is enough for me.

So tired of reading others posts about Albert Haynesworth playing time and thinking it because he tired,out of shape,'s called rotation of very large D-linemen,it happens on every team in the NFL!does anyone think he can just decide to come out and then go back in when he feels rested? No! that is a coaches call, not his or any other player in the NFL,anyone who knows anything about football knows that.

What I see is Albert getting double or triple teamed almost every play but still moving the pocket 2-3 yards into the back field and into the face of the QB,that is what a Defensive Tackle is given big money to do, quote from Zorn "Haynesworth plays in 45 of the team’s 65 defensive snaps. Zorn said, “I wish Albert could play 100 percent of the time at 100 percent speed, but he weighs 340 (pounds). He's a load, and moving that much mass will take it out of you.”

Point is get over the cash he has been given and watch what he does when in the game...guess everyone thinks Reggie White,Randy White or Dave Butz played every down? No

Just proves to me that Albert has no faith in Zorn and RIGHTFULLY SO.
