Mark Moseley: Haynesworth 'needs to get his ass out of town'
From our perspective, Joe Theismann nailed it on Thursday when he took Albert Haynesworth out behind the wood shed for a beating as the ex-Redskin hammered the current Redskin in self-imposed exile.
Theismann’s former teammates joined the bashfest on Thursday when the Redskins wrapped up minicamp at Redskins Park on an alumni day created by general manager Bruce Allen, who upset some alums when he didn’t renew the contract of one alum, scout Donnie Warren. But that’s a different story.
Theismann said Haynesworth “really offers nothing as a person, as a player, as a teammate. The only thing this big man has is a big bank account.” Well, the 1983 NFL MVP was backed up by the 1982 NFL MVP as kicker Mark Moseley piled on, according to Paul Tenorio of the Washington Post.
“My two cents worth: Albert Haynesworth needs to get his ass out of town and go somewhere else," Moseley said. “And I think if the Redskins could do that, they would do that. I don't know the background of all of it, the money parts of it, but when you have a player like that that is that disgruntled, get him out of here. He's a cancer to these guys.
“These guys here today are the players that want to play. They're the players that deserve to play and when you have a player like that, I don't care how much money he makes it's not worth having a disgruntled player in here to spread cancer among the team.”
Softspoken wide receiver Art Monk, who avoids controversy as well as he ran routes, was even critical of Haynesworth.
“I don't want to get into all that, but he made a commitment to this team and he needs to honor his commitment,” Monk said. “Whether he likes it or not he made a commitment. He should be man enough to do that.”
When Monk questions someone’s manhood, that might be more newsworthy than Theismann, a veteran analyst, popping off. So the beat goes on in Washington – without Haynesworth.
