All of the Jerry Jones haters out there these days need to realize how lucky they are that they don't have Daniel Snyder as an owner. Jerry Jones gambles and has made many mistakes along the way, but no one can kill a team salary cap like Daniel Snyder. For some reason he just can't help himself when it comes to making a splash with a big name in free agency. Albert Haynesworth is the latest example.
He is a great player when his effort is high, but there are a lot of factors at play with a contract of this magnitude. A player with this size of a contract should be expected to be the face of your franchise. Is that the guy you want representing you? Someone who gets in trouble both on and off the field with his behavior is not the guy I want to pay big money to. Say what you want about T.O., but at least he isn't in trouble with the police and he isn't getting away with inexcusable acts of violence on the field. And don't forget that the only time that Haynesworth has ever really dominated just happened to be a contract year.
Daniel Snyder also just gave DeAngelo Hall a new 6-year, $54 million contract. Another low character guy signed to a huge deal. I've never seen DeAngelo Hall ever do much except post an amazing 40-yard dash time. Imagine the fan outcry if Jerry Jones had made these two free agency moves. I love watching the Redskins make these moves year after year because it just insures that they will continue along the path as a mediocre team.
