Albert Haynesworth was seen on the sideline, not dressed up. What's the excuse now? Meanwhile, with that happening, the rest of the Washington Redskins squad got their butts smoked from the New York Giants, 31-7. It was led by Brandon Jacobs, running all over the Redskins, bringing back his spark from the 2007-08 season.

Veteran Phillip Daniels may have lost it when he saw "Fat Al" not show up and play.

"I've been through 15 seasons and I ain't won [anything]. So what I'm saying is if I can come out here and do this, don't tell me that you can't do it," Daniels said Monday. "I want every guy on this team to do well. I want you to realize that if you ain't all in, you don't need to be here.

"That's my point. I'm tired of going through season after season where we lose games that we should win, guys not doing the right thing, guys not putting the best effort in, whatever it may be. I'm tried of that, man. We deserve better."

The Redskins' playoff chances are now very slim, sitting at 5-7 as they trail three games behind the Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles. If they were to at least win this game, they could have stayed in the playoff race. But even if they finish at 9-7, it may not be enough. Washington has dealt with Haynesworth a lot this season as he refuses to play nose tackle. Now he only comes in every few plays, and now, he isn't even playing at all. It's sad, really.

It seems that Haynesworth apparently got sick this week and Mike Shanahan decided to put the man on the inactive list. Haynesworth must be really smart. He gets paid $100 million for not doing anything. There's much drama around him this year, as he skipped the workouts along with the conditioning test that even Mike Golic, who is like 20 years older than Al, passed.

"It's always something else," Daniels said. "I just wish the team could stay focused and not worry about things like this. When I come to the locker room on game day, I expect guys to be ready to go and play. I don't expect to get a surprise. ... At the same time I can understand why it happened. I'm not questioning the coach's decision at all."

Shanahan says he will talk to Haynesworth on Wednesday and tell everyone after the meeting if Albert is on the team or not. I wouldn't be surprised if they release him, or try to trade him at least.

"I think it's fair for me to talk to him before I talk to you," Shanahan told reporters.

The Associated Press had this to say: 
Daniels said the distractions involving Haynesworth are "not healthy" for the team and that it "drags you down." He called Haynesworth a "great person" who "tries for the most part to fit in," but Daniels also cited a slogan from college -- "Big team, little me" -- and said that's the part Haynesworth doesn't get.
"That's what I go out there and play for every day -- my teammates," Daniels said. "And I think that's the part of the game that really skipped by him."
I wholeheartedly agree with Daniels. Haynesworth needs to stop being lazy and goddamn play!

He's done.
