An incredible read.

http://www.theplayerstribune.com/albert-haynesworth-letter-to-my-younger-self/

A pretty telling exerpt from it:

Quote:
If nothing else, listen to me on this, Albert: Do not leave the Tennessee Titans. Your defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is a mastermind. No matter how much I tell you this, youíll probably never realize it until your career is over, but itís true. Youíre like a system quarterback. You thrive in a very specific scheme. When you hit free agency, the Washington Redskins are going to offer you $100 million. Everyone will talk about this (they wonít talk about the fact that most of that money is not guaranteed, or that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offered you $135 million). The $100 million will become a huge burden. Take less and stay in Tennessee where you belong.

Regardless of what anyone says, he's still one of my favorite Titans. His 2007-2008 seasons were up against some of the best all-time seasons amongst defensive players. He could not be single-teamed whatsoever. I miss those days of having a dominant defense and he was the main reason for that.

Couldn't be single-teamed? Hell, the guy often couldn't be double-teamed. He was unbelievably dominant.

This was a great read. Glad he seems to have matured with age.
