Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has fired back at former defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, saying he is "lazy" and "lacks character."

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan isn't about to back down from former defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth

According to the Washington Post's Mike Jones, it all started earlier this week, when Haynesworth ripped Shanahan by labeling him "conniving" and "self-centered." 

Haynesworth said,"He's conniving and everything like that...I mean, the guy is all 'me,me,me'...They're always going to try to blame RG3 for something. It's never going to be the head coach's fault. Ever." 

The Redskins mentor fired back on Thursday.

"Let me put it this way, the only people I really haven't gotten along with since I've been a head coach and an assistant coach is someone that's lazy, and No. 2, someone that's lazy, and they may lack character, or they're lazy and lack passion for the game.

"Those are really the only people I haven't gotten along with as a head coach or an assistant coach. And so that's what you're looking for.

"And through my years, people that are lazy and have lacked passion for their job, and if they do, they don't last the next year. And so the people that I've looked at come back and complain and do some of the things that you do when you don't get along with someone as a head coach or an assistant coach, usually falls in one of those couple areas: lazy, lack of passion, and lot of times, a lack of character, and he fits all three." 

The friction between the two men has carried over into the present time. It began when Shanahan first became Redskins head coach in 2010, when Haynesworth was under contract for $100 million. The latter wasn't particularly happy when the team switched to a 3-4 defensive front when Shanahan took over. 

Since then, their relationship has always been documented as rocky and tumultuous. Haynesworth was eventually traded to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round pick in 2011, getting labeled as one of the biggest free agent busts in NFL history

Haynesworth's former teammate, tight end Chris Cooley, who now has his own radio show, started things off when he called him "an awful human being." To which Haynesworth responded by saying Cooley "sounds as stupid as he looks." 

Will the war of words between head coach and former player continue? Stay tuned.

Oct 21 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When the Washington Redskins fell to 3-6 nine weeks into the 2012 NFL season, then-head coach Mike Shanahan appeared to be waving a white flag by stating that they'd begin evaluating players for following season. He later clarified that he wasn't giving up on the campaign at hand, but a strange message had already been sent.  Naturally, the Redskins didn't lose again for the remainder of the year, win ...

Redskins work to wipe clear the implication that losing is acceptable

When he was handed the reins of the Washington Redskins last January, first-year NFL Coach Jay Gruden inherited a 3-13 team and a locker room that had grown accustomed to strife and inured to losing. Washington lost its last eight games of 2013 amid a standoff between head coach and quarterback. Mike Shanahan was fired at season’s end, but not before benching Robert Griffin III in a move that some interpreted as a final act of def ...
