Haynesworth, Jacobs fined for Monday's skirmish

The NFL today handed down disciplinary action stemming from the on-field incident that occurred Monday night in the Redskins' 45-12 loss to the New York Giants, fining defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth $10,000 and New York running back Brandon Jacobs $7,500, according to a league source.

We'll have more on this shortly.

There is a mole inside of Redskins organization that feeds the NYG of all our game plans.
Second, Greg Blache, please don't come back.

Are these league officials blind. Jacobs deserves a fine double that of Haynesworth. Just goes to show up they jump on the people who are down. How do you throw a guy down by his face mask punch at him and then punch another player and get of that easy. Jacobs is just a PUNK. He'll get his. Come on officials open your eyes you were standing right there.

Sure the fines are lopsided, but that's not the issue. The fact is that these fines are meaningless. Jacobs said on Tuesday that he didn't care about being fined and it's plain to see why.

I don't know what Jacobs earns, but in Albert's case, fining a guy $10,000 who is slated to earn $100 million really doesn't mean a thing. Jacobs probably drops $7500 on a Saturday night out with friends.

Maybe they should think about fining the ref's who didn't make the right call on the field.

Haynesworth pays it and he deducts it from his taxes. Hall pays it and he can't deduct it.

At Haynesworth's tax bracket, the US Government is paying more of this fine, in lower revenues, than Haynesworth is paying.

Malcolm Kelly is not a bust...He does not play because he loses time to Antwaan Randle-El.

I will not declare Kelly a bust until he plays consistently and through a full season.

Zorn: "I wouldn't flip that position, because Devin hasn't done anything to have that position flipped. He's just got a sprained ankle. But Malcolm Kelly is going to show. He's going to show what he can do."

Zorn can't figure out that he made an idiot move to put Thomas as a returner. Thomas needed to focus on being a WR and not waste time or take added risk from doing returns. And what do you know, Thomas gets hurt returning a kick. If I knew it was a risk not worth taking, how come the guy getting paid $2.5 mil a year couldn't figure it out?

I was happy to see Haynesworth once again come to Hall's aid. As a Redskin fan its nice to know these players have each others backs even in a 4-10 season.

Immediate needs for the 2010 season. We need a first rate DT, a strong-side OLB, a shut-down CB, and a blazing fast SeanTaylor-type FS on defense. On offense we need a RB, two OT's, a LG and RG backup. We can't get them all in one draft, but a back-up RG might already be on the team in Edwin WILLIAMS.

Happy Holidays everyone! F- Dallas! Please Mr. Allen build the trenches on this team the way they were in the 80`s! Thank You!

GRIFFIN is now injury-prone, GOLSTON and ALEXANDER are too light to play effective DT in this league, and MONTGOMERY is just not working out. He's sealed off a lot of times when the opposing offense runs up the gut. We need a new DT stud to run with MONEYSWORTH.
