Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post’s DC Sports Bog deserves some sort of award.
Every day, a new football personality plays whack-a-Haynesworth. And every day, Steinberg faithfully records the quotes, adding some clever spin to keep the whole exercise from growing repetitive or tiresome.
At PFT, we have no such qualms about growing repetitive or tiresome.
Today’s anti-Albert comments come courtesy of Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh on the LaVar and Dukes Show. McIntosh referred to Haynesworth as “The one that hasn’t been around” and then was asked if the team will welcome Haynesworth back.
“It all depends on [Haynesworth's] performance,” McIntosh said. “If he does good, I
think everything will go by smoothly. But if things don’t turn out, I
guess there’s gonna be some turmoil in there, because a lot of guys are
tired with the shenanigans that he brings along.”
It’s a great point that we haven’t heard mentioned often. No one will give a crap about Haynesworth’s offseason transgressions if the defensive tackle plays like he’s capable of playing. Even the media.
In the meantime, we’ll continue to pass along all this rare teammate-on-teammate crime when we see it.
