NFL  > General NFL  > Rhabdo vs Fatso....or how Albert Haynesworth spent his summer......
August 23, 2010, 02:10 PM
Rhabdomyolysis is a consequence of training too hard and causing the breakdown of muscle fibers resulting in the release of muscle fiber contents (myoglobin) into the bloodstream. Some of these are harmful to the kidney and frequently result in kidney damage. The key here is "too hard". If you are in reasonable shape like the rest of the team you won't get this. The fat **** is out of shape pure and simple. He should be embarrassed.

The best part is in his post game interview he said he won't come to next year's summer OTAs (like they want him back) and will spend time with his trainer.....who is his trainer? Burger King and Dairy Queen? Maybe Ronald and Wendy? A pox on the free agency program is he! Ban Albert Haynesworth for wasting Dan's money!

Dan deserves loosing his money like this, trying to be the Yankees of the NFL, you can't buy a Superbowl. You would have thought he learned his lesson with the likes of:

Adam Archuleta???Signed in 2006, he didn't fit into the Redskins defense and was benched. They dumped him on the Bears this year so they didn???t have to pay half of his guaranteed $10 million.

Jeff George???Signed in 2000 as a backup quarterback for $18 million over four years, he played in six games his first season. When new coach Marty Schottenheimer started him in the first two games of the 2001 season, the team lost the games by a combined score of 67???3, and Schottenheimer fired him.

Jeremiah Trotter???Signed in 2002 to a seven-year, $35-million deal, he didn't fit into the Redskins defense and lasted two years before he went back to Philadelphia.

4. Bruce Smith???A linchpin of the Buffalo Bills four Super Bowl teams, Smith was 37 in 2000, and the Bills figured he wasn???t worth the $4.6 million he was to earn. Smith became a free agent and got $23 million for five years from Snyder. Smith lasted four years but was never worth the money the Redskins paid him.

Deion Sanders???The perfect example of the trophy names Snyder likes to sign. He gave Sanders a seven-year, $55-million deal in 2000 with an $8-million signing bonus. Sanders could still play in 2000???the problem was that he no longer wanted to. He walked after one year and kept the signing bonus.

And Zorn, 5/$15 mil. I think, and his back-to-back fake FG calls. D'oh! Wow, I forgot about some of those guys. And that doesn't even cover some other guys Snyder brought in who haven't quite fulfilled expectations. Hopefully, Shanahan will get the Redskins back in the NFC East hunt.

Agreed Dan has made some really bad deals over the years.
He is starting to look like a rich Al Davis the exception being of course is, at one time, 25 years ago, Al knew what he was doing.
Dan has never looked like he knew what he was doing and has wasted so much money.
Dan and Albert deserve one another.

I like Shanahan but really doubt he can get this ship righted.

There has to be resentment over Albert's salary and his lack of work ethic, a "why should I care about this team they don't pay me" hovering over the locker room.

I heard that McNabb was in wraps after the preseason game the other night, could he be having more problems with the sports hernia again? if so that is not a good sign.
