Haynesworth

84 posts in this topic

As far as I know, he's been good this season. The head stomp was two seasons agom right? I mean, Smith has punched two players AND had an altercation in his early days on the field.

We actually could afford him depending on other cuts/deals.

You guys always forget the magic our FO does when it can.

IMO it will be looked at. We dont have a 1st round pick and improving the end side will be on the list next year. He is also a Hartsville,SC native and that about 2 and half hours from the Queen city so its possible.

Don't want someone like that on the team. I love Smitty but he pushes the envelop enough as it is.

And what Haynesworth did is 10 times worse in my opinion.

If it comes down to keeping Gross and Pep or losing one of them to sign Haynesworth, would we give up one. Note that both Gross and Peppers have not signed offer sheets that by general opinion were very good offers. Is it possible we will lose on or the other anyway. Could Haynesworth make up for losing Peppers particularly if he decides to go elsewhere and we don't franchise him. Gross seems the one who is most likely to leave given he wouldn't sign last year and we won't franchise him again.

Think Haynesworth would give us a discount if we win it all this year? Would he like to play on a Superbowl team if Tennessee doesn't make it.

Gross who?

I won't get my hopes up though.

Everyone here is acting like they know everything about Haynesworth based on that one day two years ago when he stomped that guy's head. He has had exemplary behavior the past two days and I remember reading an interview with him shortly after the incident that gave me some new respect for him. I remember he said he was completely disgusted with himself after that and I believe he took anger management classes or something of the sort to deal with his problem. People make mistakes, take a page out of Ken Lucas' book and think about how Haynesworth may have grown since that incident.

Having him on our defense would be great, its our major position of need and he is one of the best, if not the best, in the league.

Like I said a lil while ago, we really should go after Haynesworth. Our defense imo would be close to 2003 all over again

We'll see

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
