Joe Theismann Doesn't Think Much Of Albert Haynesworth

The great transcriber, Washington Post's Dan Steinberg, was listening when the ever quotable Joe Theismann was on Sirius Radio's "Sirius Blitz" discussing Washington Redskins' mini-camp hold-out Albert Haynesworth. As always, Theismann does not hold back when asked for his opinion. Here's a few of some of the choicest quotes from Theismann via DC Sports Bog:

"He's not a team player," Theismann said. "He doesn't give a damn about anybody but himself, which has become painfully obvious. And you know what, Albert doesn't care what anybody says. He's pocketed 21 million dollars. If anybody would look at this situation, you'd have to say it's all about the money, its not about the love of the game."

***

"And he's classless, ok? I mean, there's nothing else that you can say, but the man has very little respect for teammates, very little respect for anyone."

***

"He really offers nothing as a person, as a player, as a teammate."    

Talk about pulling no punches, eh Joe? There's a whole lot more venom where that came from in the in the full story, I urge you to give it a read. If there is one thing that Joe Theismann has always excelled in, it is in being incredibly outspoken.
