Yesterday, I quoted in my Sports Fix that, “When the fall’s all that’s left, it matters a great deal,” going into the Redskins game. The Giants didn’t just beat the Redskins last night, they heard the lamentations of their women. It was a seal-clubbing. Trick plays gone awry, no points in the first half, this was the team that started out the season, not the team that almost beat New Orleans. After the 45-12 loss, the Post caught Albert Haynesworth:

“It just feels like we’re all going in different directions,” Haynesworth said. “We need someone to lead us in the right direction.”

Oh sweet baby Jesus, where to begin.

Here’s a hint, Albert, if you can spot the problem (direction) and you only ask for a leader, you will never get one. In that situation, your job is to rally as many of your teammates as possible, and lead them in the right direction. You just signed the biggest NFL contract ever for a defense player. Perhaps it’s time to demonstrate some leadership, instead of throwing punches. Maybe, just maybe, then you can bitch about leadership.
