Albert Haynesworth warns RG3 about conniving Mike Shanahan


Former Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is taking a shot at his former team and warning their star quarterback about his head coach.

“I mean, it’s like, you can’t win with that team,” Haynesworth said, via the DC Sports Bog. “And you think it was just me? I mean, look how he did Donovan (McNabb). See what’s going on with RGIII. I met RGIII.

“He seemed like an extremely nice guy that’s willing to work,” Haynesworth continued. “Now he’s gonna learn — I mean, I hate to say he’s gonna learn — about Shanahan, how he’s conniving and everything like that, where he’s not gonna help him out, it’s all about him.”

Haynesworth went on to say that he doesn’t think Washington can win with the two-time Super Bowl winning head coach at the helm.

“Yeah, good luck with that,” he said. “They’re gonna run RGIII into the ground. They almost really hampered his career last year with the knee injury, putting him back in there. I mean, I think they ought to cut ties, let it go.”

I don’t know where this all came from or why Haynesworth felt the need to speak out. He thinks the current Redskins players agree but are afraid to speak up.

“I think they’re too scared to say anything,” he said. “They might think that in their head, they might tell one of their closest friends or something like that. But I don’t think it’s gonna work out. They’re always gonna try to blame RGIII for something. It’s never gonna be the head coach’s fault. EVER.”
