There is really nothing to say here, you are exactly right in almost every word. The only thing that I would add is that that Haynesworth was never happy in DC, he wasn't happy last year in the 4-3 in Blache's scheme. He told Shanahan before taking the 21 million that he would not play in the 3-4 Scheme. Shanahan should have traded him on draft day, back to the Titans.
We will never see that draft choice again. I blame both Haynesworth and Shanahan for ruining this season for the Washington Redskins. By the way, I never wanted Haynesworth in the first place. He only performed when he was franchised or when getting a huge contract depended on it, other than that he's only been an above average player in the league. There is a reason he fell to #15 in the draft, despite being a top 5 talent and the reason my friends is because of his character.
The redskins could have gotten 3 or 4 players in 09 and totally rebuilt their team instead of just giving all that money to one man. If they had done that, they would be a better franchise today.
