    What Chap Petersen said about Albert Haynesworth.

    Here’s the problem:  He doesn’t give a damn about his team.  Nor does he seem to care about his teammates.

    In the off-season, Haynesworth was the ONLY REDSKIN to miss off-season workouts, despite the fact that he makes more money than anyone on the team.  He skipped the mini-camp.  He begged off most the training camp as “sick” (whatever that means) and/or unable to perform a conditioning drill that was hardly taxing for a professional athlete.  He refuses apparently to talk to his coaches.  

    Two weeks ago, in the Eagles game, I was in the stands when Haynesworth “laid down” on a pass rush and basically rested while the play continued.  I have never seen that before, not even in high school JV games.

    Is this a joke?

    If it is a joke, it’s a really bad one.  Good riddance Albert Haynesworth?  We can only hope.

      Haynesworth is following a long tradition in professional sports, the “God Syndrome”. An entire lifetime being told how great he is and how he should be king of the world.  So he tells the world how to run.  However, the world can make decisions too, and in his little world the decision has been made to can him.  No he can go around telling the world how he was misunderstood and the world should have listened to him, not the coach or the owner or whoever.
