Panthers D making Our D look like a Joke

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

No doubt. A lot of us thought otherwise.

Doesn't mean he was wrong but I disagreed.

He thought giving Fat Al 40+ million was the right call too ... oh, and waiting until Griff couldn't walk before pulling him against Seattle.

I don't really understand the point of this thread. Our d is a "joke" because the Panthers have a good defense? What does our defense have to do with the Panthers? They're one of the top two defenses in the league.

Frankly, you could have written that the Tampa Bay Bucs make our defense look like a joke.

He did? I'm pretty sure that was Vinny.

RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

Yep. Most aimless thread we've had in a while.

Of course. Some people wont be happy until we have a new HC every other year and a QB controversy twice a season. The only thing that might top that off is to throw in an interim coach into the mix now and again.

In fairness, most Browns fans don't know that much about football... Not their fault.

Sorry ... only $21 million - bonus anyway. I think the total Shanny decided to pay out was over $40 million. Here's the relevant part of the timeline:

Dec. 25, 2009

Haynesworth is sent home from practice for disciplinary reasons. He was reportedly late for the team meeting and was told not to attend practice because of his tardiness.

March 15, 2010

Haynesworth informs new Coach Mike Shanahan that he will skip the team's offseason workout program.

April 1, 2010

The Redskins offer to release Haynesworth if he doesn't take his $21 million contract bonus. Instead, Haynesworth takes the bonus check and agrees to stay with the team.

That was a guaranteed bonus. Nothing Shanny could do about it.

Why was it called an option bonus? Was the entire balance of the contract guaranteed when Mike took over?

Edify, please.
