At his peak, Albert Haynesworth was one of the most dominant, disruptive interior linemen in the league. Unfortunately, his peak didn't last nearly as long as it could have because Haynesworth couldn't always control himself.

Few plays illustrate that better than his infamous stomp of Andre Gurode from 2006.

While in a larger scrap, Haynesworth loses his cool and stomps on Gurode's head, as his helmet had fallen off earlier. Just a brutal play.

Haynesworth would ultimately retire a two-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro, but this play probably serves as his lasting legacy in the league. Well, that and the $100 million deal he signed with the Washington Redskins, which is widely regarded as one of the worst contracts ever.
