Haynesworth Would Not Have Helped Redskins vs. Colts



I’m hearing a whole lot of people suggesting Albert Haynesworth should have been playing the other night because the Redskins would have stopped the run with him… yeah, the Colts would have been the team they are and not run at all. However, Peyton Manning is better than anyone at going simply with the pass, they’ve succeeded at it for years. Manning would use short, quick passes in place of the run. The other problem is, while Albert Haynesworth may very well be in better shape and condition than he was in last year, he wouldn’t have held up with the rate at which Manning and the Colts ran their hurry-up offense.

We would have seen Albert struggling to get back to the line, and we would have seen him rolling on the ground winded while coaches are forced to burn a timeout. There surely would have been plenty of offsides penalties against the Redskins as well.

When Haynesworth proves he’s in well enough shape to play your average game, I can’t believe he’s in good enough shape to handle the task of what Peyton Manning would have done (and did do) the other night. It was evident that even our best-conditioned defensive players were struggling with fatigue, and we went very few downed-linemen because of the problems the quickness of the Colts getting to the line creates.

So yes, while Haynesworth’s presence could have eliminated the threat of the Colts running game, the yards and everything would have still been there through Manning’s short-pass, penalties, and ultimately, we could have buried ourselves with timeouts being spent unnecessarily.

Thoughts?

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos.
Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.
Think of ho…
