Why not Fat Albert!!!!

Why not Fat Albert!!!!

Anybody paying attention to the Albert Haynesworth drama in Washington. Seems like Fat Albert wants out of Washington on the first train smokin. And I'm just wondering out loud would't he fit our D perfectly, enough mullling around our run d could use a stopper of his caliber and I think we have the pieces to go and bag him. Here's how:

Donovan doesn't have any protection so far we know. we could trade Jamal Brown, and give them next years first round pic ( which will probably be a high draft pick anyway since we will be going back to the playoffs and hopefully beyond.

Start haynesworth, keep Ellis, and Remy and release the rest of the DT

He doesn't want to be a run stopper anymore...he wants to be a pass rusher! I hope Al Woods pans out..........

No thank you. I think Ellis has the making to become just as disruptive if we just could get him a decent 1-tech to work with. Younger, cheaper and motivated.

Why release them all? We'll need them when Albert gets injured - he hasn't played a full season....EVER.

If he's not looking for starter money (and how could he after what WA paid him), then sure, he's worth having in the rotation.

If this guy would play..but he wants to sit out games with any bump or bruise he gets...he would be a bad influence on the DTs we already have..

Not sure about the bad influence but to me it's all about money. If he presents a certain value, then I'm all for it. The problem with the Skins is that they overpaid the guy and expected the world.

Re: Why not Fat Albert!!!!

Like I said, it's their own fault for signing him to that amount of money.

My point is that he wasn't capable of playing to their expectations.

So, now he wants out. So what, it happens all the time - just ask Al Davis!

Re: Why not Fat Albert!!!!

He is more than capable of playing ..just wants to whine...do you want that fat contract...and then next year he wants out or better yet after we get into the playoffs?...pass ..we would be better off snagging John Henderson and using the rotation we have...
