Albert Haynesworth To The New York Giants? No Thanks!

The New England Patriots released useless defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth on Tuesday, and it didn't take long for me to find misguided New York Giants fans on the Internet frothing at the mouth over the possibility of the Giants picking him up.

If you are one of those people I can only ask you this. Are you completely nuts?

Just read some of what is being written about Haynesworth by the Boston media.

The Boston Globe rips Fat Albert's "deplorable effort in the loss to the Giants" and adds that "players were starting to grumble about Haynesworth."

In a story headlined 'Albert Haynesworth craps out,' the Boston Herald details not only Haynesworth's poor play, but a sideline confrontation with assistant coach Pepper Johnson during the game.

Let's see. Haynesworth would not play for Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. He would not play for New England coach Bill Belichick, managing a paltry three tackles all season. That's two Super Bowl winning coaches Haynesworth basically quit on.

Why would anyone think it would be any different if he were to come to New York? Why would anyone think Tom Coughlin could get the 6-foot-6, 330-pound waste of talent that is Haynesworth to actually try?

There is some speculation that the Philadelphia Eagles might be interested in Haynesworth. Good. Let him go and be Andy Reid's problem. Or anyone else's for that matter. As long as he doesn't become Coughlin's problem.
