Washington Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan Suspends Albert Haynesworth

ESPN – Simmering all year, the antagonism between Albert Haynesworth and Mike Shanahan finally reached the boiling point Tuesday when the two-time All-Pro defensive lineman was suspended by the Washington Redskins coach without pay for the rest of the season.

Citing a litany of acts that essentially add up to season-long insubordination, the Redskins suspended Haynesworth for “conduct detrimental to the club” and told him he’s not welcome for the team’s final four games — and making it extremely unlikely he will play for the club again.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan suspended defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth yesterday for the rest of the 2010 season.

Mike Shanahan finally suspends Albert Haynesworth

The suspension will cost Haynesworth about $847,000 dollars.

Not much considering he signed a 7 year $41 million dollar guaranteed contract.

Shanahan fired Haynesworth before a scheduled Tuesday meeting meant to discuss a report that Haynesworth was “hung over” at Friday’s practice.

Mike Shanahan stated “Albert was at Redskin park, he told our general manager Bruce Allen that he [Haynesworth] would no longer speak with me…I believe the situation has reached the point where the club clearly has no alternative.”

Teammates London Fletcher, Vonnie Holiday, and Phillip Daniels have all spoken out against Haynesworth immature actions.

The former All-Pro defensive lineman also refused to play in Mike Shanahan’s defense because he didn’t want to play nose guard. A nose guard is nearly always double teamed and only has 2 other defensive lineman with him, instead of 3. The defensive scheme is used for 1st & 2nd down situations where the offense has the option to pass or run.

When is it time to just shut up and play football??

Vince Wilfork did it for the New England Patriots and now they are the best team in the league.
