if you are a Redskins fan the bottom line is the same
Haynesworth AND McNabb need to be moved.
Neither one will be successful here in the schemes the coaches are running.
Shanahan isn't responsible for Haynesworth's contract or his coming to the Redskins. But he IS responsible for his CONTINUED presence beyond the point where any good was going to come of it.
Shanahan IS responsible for McNabb being on the roster, period. He traded for him and if I were the owner I would want an explanation of the thought process involved in the decision. I would not necessarily mind flushing the money, but I would want to be sure this kind of mistake didn't happen again.
I dont know if I agree with that.
I think with Mcnabb you can fix the situation by meeting him partway and adjusting your scheme, but I strongly doubt Shanny will do that, and to be honest the upside of retaining Mcnabb simply isnt very high.
with Albert I think its salvageable but both sides would have to eat some crow and we all know thats never on shannahans menu, I am pretty sure that if we went to an aggressive 4-3 next year and flat out told AH, "you wanted a 4-3 and you said you wanted to be a HOF player, heres your chance to make us look wrong and you look right" well lets just say that almost every all pro player is motivated on soem level by pride. it would be risky because frankly when we start dominating, people will say why the eff didnt we run that all along?
now in the real world, shanny never admits hes wrong and isnt willing to adjust anything that reflects poorly on him, so we would probably be better off moving them both for whatever we can get, yet one more time that we will be taking way less than fair value for players we paid top dollar for.
