Haslett, McCarthy reunited on Sunday

In 2000, Jim Haslett was named the NFL coach of the year after guiding the New Orleans Saints to a 10-6 record and the NFC West championship in his first season.

That same season, Saints offensive coordinator Mike McCarthy was selected as the NFC assistant coach of the year. Haslett now directs the Redskins' defense and McCarthy is in charge of the Packers, and the teams meet Sunday at FedEx Field.

"It works two ways," Haslett said of whether either team would have an advantage because of his relationship with McCarthy. "We worked together for a number of years. He is a close friend of mine. Half of his coaching staff I was with in New Orleans.

"It's going to be good to see him again. He has done a great job up there and done an excellent job putting a team together. He is doing a good job coaching. I know the coaches. They are some of the best coaches around."

I'm sure DT's release is due to his lack of understanding of basic geometry.

Both of which are needed to understand the NFL route tree...

Devin will just be another player that makes it big in another city.

Very sorry to see this happen without him even getting a chance.

Devin had more chances than most guys. Armstrong? Austin? Banks?

He's in his third year in the league. started 10 games last year. He had all spring, summer, pre-season, and regular season to convince the coaching staff he's better than rookies like Austin or Banks. He couldn't do it.

And he's gonna make it big elsewhere? Like Marko Mitchell? I hope he does, because he sure blew a good shot at it here.

How is that going to happen? It takes 24 hours to clear waivers. And, most likely, 2 or 3 teams will try to claim him. He will be "awarded" to the team with the worst record.

If the Packers wanted him, they would have traded a pick to the Redskins to get him. No team wanted him at the price of a 7th round pick.

For all the big talk, DT has had ZERO impact as a WR this year and spare little over the last two years.

So who cares if he's gone? Buh-By.

Should have used that pick on O line in the first place...

Haynesworth family will honor Lance McCoy with memorial motorcycle ride

Posted by Mike Florio on October 9, 2010 3:20 PM ET
The family of Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth has announced that Haynesworth's late half-brother, Lance McCoy, will be honored with a memorial motorcycle ride in Nashville on Sunday, at 10:30 a.m. CT. McCoy died Thursday night as a result of a motorcycle accident.

The ride will begin at 1101 Broadway and conclude at the Jennings and Ayers Funeral Home. A memorial service will follow from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. CT.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports that Haynesworth is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Packers. A source with knowledge of the situation has confirmed that Haynesworth is expected to remain in Nashville for Sunday's activities.

I didn't realize they scheduled all this stuff on Sunday.
