The last time Albert Haynesworth's name came up around these parts, he was being verbally assassinated by a former Washington Redskins teammate.
Now the man Chris Cooley calls an "awful human being" is firing off some shots of his own. In an interview on Tennessee Sports Radio, he went back at Cooley ("He sounds as stupid as he looks"), then set his sights on Redskins coach Mike Shanahan.
"I mean, it's like, you can't win with that team," Haynesworth said, via the DC Sports Bog. "And you think it was just me? I mean, look how he did Donovan (McNabb). See what's going on with RGIII. I met RGIII.
"He seemed like an extremely nice guy that's willing to work. Now he's gonna learn -- I mean, I hate to say he's gonna learn â" about Shanahan, how he's conniving and everything like that, where he's not gonna help him out, it's all about him."
Haynesworth eviscerates Shanahan during the interview, and points out the coach has found little success since winning his second Super Bowl with John Elway and the Denver Broncos in the 1998 season. Haynesworth was asked if Washington could ever succeed with Shanahan running the show.
"Yeah, good luck with that," he said. "They're gonna run RGIII into the ground. They almost really hampered his career last year with the knee injury, putting him back in there. I mean, I think they ought to cut ties, let it go."
We wouldn't call Shanahan a universally beloved figure by any stretch, but consider the source here. By rule, we don't take anything Albert Haynesworth says seriously.
I despise haynesworth , he is a greedy, lazy, locker room cancer ........but I kind of agree with him on this one, Shannahan is stubborn and put RG3 in danger last season in the playoffs , when he could have removed him in favor of Kirk Cousins, they say you gotta roll with your best players, but it was obvious RG3 was broken and in agony , and I was shocked when Shanny put him back in the game, and then he got seriously hurt, and RG3 is still dealing with it to this day ..........Albert Haynesworth is a jerk , but I must admit, he has a point this time ...just my 2 cents
