Team losing patience with Haynesworth

By John Pappas

Warpath Confidential Editor

It is rare that players in the NFL openly criticize one another. It does happen, but usually in the form of innuendo. And random enough that it is almost always a story in itself when it occurs. Even rarer are players on the same team who do so. They will imply. They will subtly suggest. But they are hardly ever openly critical of a teammate.

But this has changed with the continued absence and unfolding drama of Albert Haynesworth. No longer are players or the team willing to cover for the big man. Not after he decided to blow off a mandatory camp and let it be known he would like to play elsewhere.

“Albert has made a very selfish decision,” said London Fletcher. “When you decide to play a team sport, you have to look at it, and think about everybody involved in the situation. This is not golf, or tennis, where it is a ‘all-about-you’ kind of sport. What he’s decided to do is make a decision that’s all about him, and it is no different than his attitude on last year’s defense about everything being about, or wanting everything to revolve around him, and him making plays. And if it didn’t benefit him, he wasn’t really willing to do it.”

Harsh words from Fletcher, who is one of the most measured and respected players on the team.

He's done here. Nobody wants him - not the fans, the players, or the coaches. Even if he shows up and we have to keep him, he'll sit on a bench the entire time.

Hopefully the closest he gets to playing at fedex again is bellying up to golden corral off arena drive

What is really interesting is DeAngleo Hall's remarks. I would like to know your take on those JJ?

Haynesworth was the only guy willing to jump in and back Hall up twice last year in on-the-field altercations.

Maybe this was Hall's way of saying thanks.

I am not surprised at the frustrations.

Wonder why we have not heard from Bruce Allen. I am not surprised Snyder is staying quiet as he is trying to prove he is going to be in the "background", but I thought we would at least have a statement from Allen (unless one is out and I just missed it)

I did not even think of that. In a weird way that would make sense.

I just saw it as Hall seeing things more as a "business" and less as a "sport". I do not agree with the way he sees things, but I certainly understand where he is coming from.

If Hall thinks that makes Haynesworth a guy worth sympathizing with, he's delusional. Hall wasn't in any danger. He was trying to stir up trouble. Haynesworth decided he'd like to join in because he's a selfish guy with a short temper.

The fewer guys we have like that on the team, the better.
