Charles Mann Unloads On Haynesworth

Saw some quotes over at NFP this morning that former Redskin Charles Mann laid out last week and I could hardly believe my eyes. Check out the best of what Mann had to say about Albert Haynesworth:

“Man, lemme tell you this, for a million dollars I would have done all those things (in the offseason program), not a hundred million,” Mann told ESPN 980. “And I’ve sat with Albert and his wife and his mother at an event in the community. I just don’t think he realizes. I’m looking at athletic events, I’m looking at the way these athletes handle different situations, and I look, and I say gosh.

“I mean, you go through it, you’re young, and you think this is the way it’s supposed to be and this is just regular life, and they have no clue as to the opportunity that they’re in the midst of. I’d crawl on the ground backwards for a hundred million dollars.

“I mean, just do the work. He looks more like a nose tackle, and a 3-4’s gonna be great for him. You know why a 3-4 would be great? Because all he’ll have to do is what he did last year, and that’s just fall on the ground, pile it up a little bit and the linebackers roll past you and make the plays, He doesn’t even have to make a play in the 3-4.”

Then — when asked if Big Al could come in fresh and in shape after missing all of the Redskins OTA sessions and be ready to go regardless:

“Heck no! Heck no. Did he show up last year in shape for the league, for the season? I mean, c’mon now.”
