As if there was ever a doubt. Try to contain your shock on this one, but Lance Zierlein of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Dan Snyder is prepared to spend $100 million on defensive tackle extraordinaire Albert Haynesworth. In addition to the gargantuan money Snyder is using a lifetime of free haircuts to lure the Pro Bowler to town. It’s also being reported that Snyder is adamant about giving up a first and a third round draft pick in exchange for Haynesworth, despite the fact that he’s a free agent. [Mister Irrelevant]

Please God, don’t let this be true! Does anyone else see the second coming of the Dana Stubblefield signing?
I’ll cosign HofC’s statements.

If March is around the corner, then it’s time for the Dan to arise from his secret money vault and hand out free millions to players.
And because of that, we get 4 more weeks of rain.

This is a way better use of money than when Synder signed Adam Archuleta to a 7 year $35MM contract. Haynesworth is actually better in pass coverage too!

He meant to sign David. Tony Kornheiser turned him onto Idol. That kid’s got talent!

Usually, at least when your owner spends a ton of money, you can’t get too mad at him being a mouth breather.
This is not one of those times.

“How many different ways can you say, ‘What were they thinking?’ ” a team executive who declined to be identified said after being told the terms of Asomugha’s three-year, $45 million contract. Haynesworth’s $100 million with an average of $15 million to $16 million per year contract.
“Insanity, stupidity, whatever you want to attach to it. Yeah, the kid is the best cornerback defensive tackle in the league. They paid They’ll pay for quality. I’ll give them that. But that deal wrecks the league. Absolutely wrecks it. … I’m sure Al Dan doesn’t care, but it’s deals like that that change the league for the worse.”

Wait…this is the same guy who curb-stomps people like Edward Norton in American History X? 100 million? Jesus maybe I should study that movie a little bit more.
Good. Maybe then Fat Albert will curb-stomp Jamal Jackson so Andy Reid has to bring in a new center. Maybe he can curb-stomp Andy Reid?
Is Dan Snyder Al Davis’ secret illegitimate son? Anyone?

Whatever. They’re not giving up picks, they can more than afford to pay him… as long as they come in under the cap and don’t lose DeAngelo and can sign their draft picks, I’m fine with it. Dude’s a beast. Could be a bust. Whatever. The Skins were worse than their record last year. Can’t hurt to shake things up a bit.

WAIT! Wait one friggin minute… Daniel Snyder is going to pay $100 million for Mrs. Buttersworth to play D-Tackle for the skins? Those gotdamned pancakes better be made out of gold and sparks better shoot outta her bottle.

Normally I don’t begrudge pro athletes signing contracts worth enough money such that you could kill multiple people and buy your way out of it, but c’mon. $100 million dollars? In the middle of an economic recession? When I’d imagine a ton of people aren’t going to be renewing their season tickets? Not only that, but for a good, but not great, defensive tackle with a history of performance issues? Unless the contract reads like “Albert Haynesworth will be guaranteed the veteran minimum, and everything else is incentives, you lazy, shiftless fuck”, I wouldn’t touch it with Jerry Jones’ dick.
secretly glad the Colts don’t have to play this guy twice a season anymore

See? this is why it’s unfair when people call Dallas a trainwreck (which, let’s face it, they sort of are).
I’m always like “hey! WAS has been a trainwreck WAY longer than Dallas. Give credit where credit is due.”

Snyder’s going to insist the Skins use the rare 1-10 Defensive Scheme.
