Shanahan explains Haynesworth decision

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan today further explained his decision on Tuesday to suspend DT Albert Haynesworth for the final four games of the season. And make no mistake: it was his decision to do so – owner Daniel Snyder let Shanahan make the call either way.

“It was just time,” Shanahan said, via the Washington Post . “It was just time to go in another direction."

“(He) didn't like the base defense, didn't like the nickel defense. He didn't want to play nose tackle, he didn't want to play defensive end.

"When we got him playing the nickel package, first and second and third down, he didn't like first- and second-down nickel. He wanted to play nickel in passing situations. I've never quite been through a situation like this before. And we did it in the best interests of our football team. And now, we go on."

It won’t go on that easily, though. The NFLPA almost certainly will file an appeal, and after that, the team will most likely release Haynesworth. Then, Haynesworth will leave with his bags filled with money despite not giving the Redskins the production they could have expected a $100 million contract would bring.

Shanahan explains Haynesworth decision

Haynesworth is a baby and deserves nothing, but he will get plenty.  Just like T.O. did with Philly when they suspended him.  Human beings like Albert make me sick.  There are people making $8 an hour in this world, who would get fired in seconds, if they wouldn't do what they were asked, or said they wouldn't talk to the boss anymore.  So this jerk has the gift of having a 350 pound fat ass, and gets millions.  I hope your happy with your money, because I would rather not have a cent than be a piece if sh-t like you!
