A familiar scene...Haynesworth on one knee during a game.
The Bucs, as expected, cut Albert Haynesworth since he was due over $6 million next year and is a lazy piece of turd. I came across a TampaBay.com article from early January where Albert addressed his poor play:
"It was just me not having a good offseason, worrying about whether I was going back to the Redskins, all that stuff," he said.
First of all, what does working out have to do with anything else? You stay in shape because you're a professional athlete. It was likely you were going to get cut or traded anyway, so really, you screwed any team you planned to play for. JACKASS. Sorry, please continue, Albert...
"One day before reporting to (training) camp, I get traded (to New England), then I'm there trying to learn that system and dealing with that. I had a lot on my plate and a lot on my mind. Then I got [to Tampa] and it kind of freed me up to get back to how I play. So as time went on, I got more comfortable in the system and things got a little easier."
- "a lot on my plate" = hot dogs, buckets of fried chicken, purple steaks.
- "a lot on my mind" = Lawsuits for being a jackass to waitresses, other motorists, business partners, strippers, and lawyers.
- "I got more comfortable" - You said the same thing in New England and got cut there too.
Memorable #92 Redskins quotes:
"I mean, I'm not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but ... that don't mean I'm for sale or a slave or whatever." [link]
"You're not going to remember Albert Haynesworth as a bust." [link]
