I was holding out hope until he skipped out on the mandatory minicamp and said he wanted to be traded.

Re: NFL Players Weigh In On Haynesworth Situation

I had a gut feeling that Shanny would make sure that AH is traded by July 29th so that AH couldn't be a distraction at Training Camp. But, as time goes on, it's beginning to look like AH may be at camp, after all.

Obviously, the best case scenario would be that AH comes to camp in shape and ready to go. I think we all know that he can dominate and there's no doubt in my mind that we would be a better team with him than without him. So now I'm starting to think that, if AH makes it to camp, he'll be here for the long haul as long as he can meet Shanny's minimum standard of behavior. It seems to me that every team has at least one player who is a pain in the neck. AH just makes more money than the rest of them.

Re: NFL Players Weigh In On Haynesworth Situation

Finally a positive ah article, granted it's an interview with his personal trainer but it painted his off-season in a positive individual light. The question unasked and unanswered is how it translates to the team approach.
Fredericksburg.com - Trainer says tackle is in shape

Quote:
When Haynesworth has visited other cities, such as Miami, Smith has accompanied him. Haynesworth and Smith have been apart for only 2 weeks since April, but Haynesworth maintained his routine even then, Smith said.

"He told me, 'I want to go from April all the way through to July, nonstop, and be ready,'" Smith said.
...
He wants to weigh less than in past years, Smith said, so there has been more cardiovascular work in addition to the position-specific, explosive weight-lifting exercises to which he's accustomed. Haynesworth weighed 362 pounds on April 5 and checked in yesterday afternoon at 330, Smith said. Haynesworth was listed at 350 in the Redskins' 2009 media guide.

Smith also added boxing training to Haynesworth's routine for the first time. Two days a week for 45 minutes, Haynesworth hits a heavy bag or focus mitts.

"If he can have quicker and more powerful hands than the offensive lineman, then he's going to stand a much better chance of shedding blocks, throwing guys off and getting a quicker punch to them," Smith said. "We've been doing a lot of boxing, and I think he really likes it."

This is a great article...but his weight loss certainly suggests that Haynesworth is trying to avoid having to play the nose full time.
Another good thing is that it makes him far more marketable if the Skins want to trade him. A leaner, quicker Haynesworth may be worth keeping at DE.

Re: NFL Players Weigh In On Haynesworth Situation

Believe it when we see it. Honestly what else is his trainer going to say?

This is a MUST READ article.
Note that even though this is his "personal trainer"...the guy has trained Haynesworth for 3 years straight and actually lives with him...he is probably the closest guy with accurate information regarding Haynesworth's body and mind at this time.

I agree. The bottom line for me remains that he purposely chose to skip the mandatory mini-camp. At this point, if he wants respect, he has to show up on time, go full force in whatever position Haslett puts him in, and earn his starting spot back - which I am sure he can if he wants it.

I really have zero confidence on that happening. He's got a lot to prove at this point.

Re: NFL Players Weigh In On Haynesworth Situation

If AH shows up to play Week 1, and breaks Tony Romo, all is forgiven. For me at least. I am sure some of you think otherwise.

Amen brother man. Preach on. Well, I won't say things will be perfect again, but it'll do a lot to fix how I see him at least if Romo is getting carted off the field. I will be able to say for the first time in awhile, "Albert Haynesworth put a smile on my face."

I don't know but his credibility would be completely shot if he's wrong in 2 weeks.

Why ask the translation? Its not rocket science. His actions are worth a thousand words. Fat Al is all about Fat Al plain and simple.

He could care less about team OR well he would have been in DC the last several months working with the rest of the TEAM!
