Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

The theory about him not showing up to mandatory mini camp because he was out of shape is not looking so silly now is it? Sure, he got with his trainer to lose some lbs but it is obvious that he hasn't been doing it long enough based on his lack of conditioning.

Looks like AH is getting the Montrae Holland treatment:
Redskins' Haynesworth crossed the wrong guy - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

If so, a trade might not be far away, given the precedent.

I love how Shanahan is like an Army drill sergeant. I bet Owens would be failing some tests too if he came in with an arrogant attitude.

The other guys watching this happen to Haynesworth are going to work very hard to stay in line all year I bet. He's making an example out of AH, but is probably solidifying the rest of the team in the process. He's an evil genius.


This is awesome:

So he was banished to a solo workout on a treadmill on Thursday as the rest of the team practiced outside. Later, after practice was over and the fans were heading toward their cars, he was dragged out for a scramble around trash cans on a far-off field. When he was done he was forced to jog a gauntlet of fans, past the media and back into the safety of the locker room.

Predictably, he did not speak to anyone during his walk of shame.
Either Al will be leaving shortly, or Shanahan will break him down and force him into a weak position where all he can do is get in line and quietly abide by the rules to avoid any more public humiliation. Shanahan's not going to be the one to back down in this situation.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

BREAKING: Albert Haynesworth won't be practicing today, per 106.7 Fan.

He didn't pass this morning's workout after running about 15 minutes in sprints. Shanny wasn't on the field working him out, it was Jim Haslett. Apparently Fat Al went then to his car, but no one knows if he actually left or he's still there.

D.R.A.M.A.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Grant Paulsen said that someone who saw the test said that AH did not seem gassed, and they were surprised that he didn't pass. I don't get it. Also, it sounded like Haslett administered the test not MS. But this was all second hand info on 106.7 the fan...

Any other details other than just the fact that he failed SS?
I mean it's hard to expect the guy to just pop in in-shape enough this morning, this is going to take a few days probably. Al needs to be in the weight/cardio area instead of his car though.

at 50 yards per interval it's hard to even call it a true shuttle... 600 yards is a THIRD of a mile, with a break halfway through

maybe he didn't do it fast enough? or they tried to tell him the test wasn't over and he bailed

let the rumor mill spin!

I wonder how many 300 pounders on the team that went through all the off-season workouts could actually pass the test. Twelve 50yd. sprints non-stop for a man his size is a lot of running.

Had Haynesworth easily passed the test, his teammates could wonder why they put in all the effort. I do wonder why cardeo and running was not a part of his own individual work program considering the fact that was his area of weakness last year.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

One thing's for sure, the Redskins aren't concerned about the media perception around this. But you have to figure this is making the rest of the team a tighter group and respect Shanny for the message he's sending out there.

Practice Report: Day 2 of Training Camp

Haynesworth Update

Just checked the practice fields and No. 92 – Albert Haynesworth – is not working with the defensive linemen.

I went inside the facility and saw Haynesworth working on the treadmill alongside strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright.

Certainly, head coach Mike Shanahan will address Haynesworth’s status after practice.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

This is what this organization needed for a long time! A coaching staff that won't put up with cry baby star players. I am loving shanny more and more as our head coach. Big AL just needs to go away or suck it up and bust his $100 million dollar ass!

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Wow...to be perfectly honest, this might be a real blessing in disguise for the Redskins. By making AH accountable for his absence but giving him a chance, however tough, to prove himself, Shanahan is really strengthening his position as the undisputed head of this team. Can you imagine Zorn having the stones to do this to AH?

I am so excited for this coming season

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

So what's the over/under on how many days it's going to take before he "passes" the test. 3, 4?

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

I'm going with 3. Don't think this will last 4 days.

Yesterday, Shanahan said he'll have to do it until he passes. Until he passes he will not be permitted to practice with the rest of the team. Now, exactly what that means for the long term is anybody's guess.
