Hardly a surprise


I have no ill will against Albert Haynesworth.

You know why?

Because in the immortal words of Dennis Green:


Haynesworth is the same as he's always been and it is the Redskins' fault for giving a player who has a reputation for being lazy, playing when he wants to, having a volatile personality and never turning down a free buffet 30 million dollars in guaranteed money.

I don't even think Haynesworth is lying when he says he is being singled out and mistreated by the Mike Shanahan.

I think the Redskins are screwing with him a bit, but when a relationship deteriorates to this degree it becomes like a virus spreading throughout the locker room.

Players start taking sides and trust me, there are members of the Redskins who are on Haynesworth's side.

No matter how good of a player Haynesworth is (that is debatable as well), he is bringing a negative cloud over a team that needs to be thinking positive right now considering they were garbage last year.

This isn't going to get better, it's just going to get worse.

There will become a breaking point and at that point even Gregory House won't be able to cure their sickness and the Redskins' season will put in a coffin.
