Haynesworth drama isn't cooling

Kudos to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio for putting together a few puzzle pieces on the latest Albert Haynesworth developments. Florio explains why the Haynesworth saga/distraction/nightmare might have been even worse this week than people realized. A. Haynesworth

Late in the week, Chris Cooley told D.C. radio station 106.7 The Fan that Haynesworth spent a majority of his time working with the scout team. Florio says Mike Shanahan was furious that this information went public.

"It's unusual for Chris to tell people who's working with the scout team," Shanahan said. "I've already talked to Chris."
Florio explains the possible impact of all this:

Despite Shanahan's effort to downplay Haynesworth's work with the scout team, there would have been no reason for Cooley to mention it if it was a normal, everyday occurrence. Obviously, Shanahan wants the Cowboys to think Haynesworth will play a key role on Sunday night, even if he won't.

Meanwhile, we're hearing that the Redskins "definitely" are willing to trade Haynesworth, but that Shanahan refuses to take the best offer available. Instead, he won't budge off his demand, and we continue to think that Shanahan is hoping that a Week One injury will create a demand elsewhere for Haynesworth's services -- and thus increase the price another team is willing to pay.

No way this is Shanny's fault.  Fat Albert is a$$.  He got paid money and came in out of shape and disrespected everyone of his teamates, the game of football and every other potential FA player going forward.  He has no integrity and he will continue to be treated like the selfish a$$ he is.  Get in line, work hard, and do your job.  Granted the Skins shouldn't have signed him but he deserves to be treated like a dog until he decides he wants to be a real teamate.  I can't wait until this cancer is gone but he Skins are doing he right thing by keeping him.  I hope they keep him until they get real value for him or he does something stupid so they can suspend him.  Ride him Shanny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Being an avid Skins fan, I have to say that I not happy with how Coach Shanahan has handled this situation.  He has only made things worse, and created MORE of a distraction with his confrontational style.  Haynesworth could be a huge asset to this team.  There is a reason why they paid him so much jack to come to Washington.   He was widely considered to be one of the very best defensive linemen in the NFL just a couple a short seasons ago.  Why alienate the guy?  Why not try to work with him and be more positive, instead of taking&n
bsp;such a hard line against the man?  Shouldn't he be trying to make things work with Haynesworth?  It's not Albert's fault that the Skins signed him to such a ridiculous contract.  Maybe he was somewhat out of shape.  Why not just work him hard and get him ready to be a part of this defense?  Shanahan tries to be a hard ass but just in this case he is just a plain ole ass.
