Half Smokes Hypothetical: Donovan McNabb And Albert Haynesworth

New, 1 comment

Half Smokes Hypothetical is a daily discussion where we throw out a D.C. sports-related question based on the news of the day. It's a hypothetical discussion, which is what makes it fun (we hope).

Earlier today, Donovan McNabb proclaimed definitively on ESPN 980 that the Redskins could not win without Albert Haynesworth playing. It's tough to say how much he meant that statement, because it does nobody any good for the quarterback to publicly badmouth one of his teammates.

That said, I find it kind of interesting how much many are dismissing McNabb's words as PR speak. There are many different ways to respond to the question McNabb was asked, and he chose to do it with those strong words. Therefore, I figured I'd throw this hypothetical out there.

If you were Donovan McNabb, what would your exact words be in response to a question about Albert Haynesworth? What do you think would be the most effective and accurate way for him to answer the question?
