Albert Haynesworth sets the “undershirt” game back a decade or two yesterday

Deion Sanders might have had the most brilliant sports quote of all time regarding the look of a players uniform:

“If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, they pay good.”

And in yesterdays Bucs v. Packers game, former Patriot Albert Haynesworth destroyed that mantra with a long, baggy sleeved shirt underneath his pads (but is still collecting millions).  With all of the advancements with sports gear and equipment these days, Haynesworth opted for the less warm, far less attractive cotton shirt to keep him warm in Green Bay.  It has a Pee-Wee football look written all over it.  We all know Albert is insane, but we never knew he was an advocate of spitting in the face of modern sports gear. Opting to wear far less superior equipment while jeopardizing your appearance is the work of a fool. And Haynsworth is just that.

The only player that ever rocked the long, baggy loose sleeved undershirt well was safety Roy Williams, circa Cowboys era. He was known for this, plus Under Armor wasn’t available during his rookie year. Being a jacked 220 pound safety rather than a monster head case D-Lineman also is in Roy’s corner.  So lets unite and stand together, and outlaw NFL players who have the money and resources from looking horrible in their uniform.
