Or maybe Shanny spiked his water, ya know force him to have to use the bathroom. That'll teach him!

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Sounds like he probably would have passed if he didn't take a break. Reports are saying he's definitely in a lot better shape than last year.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

It's his MO...play hard for a few plays and then take a break.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Can we all agree that if the Skins really cared to find out if Albert was in good enough shape to play 45 downs in a football scrimmage, the answer is obviously a yes.

I believe the Redskins didn't expect anything different from the start, but that's treading down the path of conspiracy.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

I dont know if this test was really fair. I mean do they normally make d-linemen run like this?

Is this a normal test Shanny always administers? If its some sort of special test, then I would have to put the blame on MS.

As a coaching technique, fine. May we all be without flaw of holding personal biases against players. As a conditioning exercise, stupid.
I agree with you. There's no way all the linemen are required to do two 300yard shuttle runs. i mean, thats about the most retarded thing i've ever read. these guys are well over 300lbs. no matter how well-conditioned, a guy that big couldnt successfully pass this test.

I am no fan of Haynesworth and i'd like nothing more than to trade him. however, he finally decided to show up and reports were he was willing to do whatever haslett and shanahan asked. the prodigals son returned... only to be pissed on by Shanahan. Whatever shanahan was trying to accomplish, its sure to backfire. This wont help anything.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

I highly doubt MS wanted him to fail the test. Do we really think MS wants this drama to continue? Does he really want to have to keep answering questions about this guy??

Give me a freakin break. If he was in great condition he would have passed the test. The guy is never in great condition so they might have assumed that he wouldn't pass, but that's no reason not to test him.

That would just be protecting him from himself. The rest of the team would see right through that.

Dude needs to grow up. He needs to be in great shape.

He is a professional athlete.
From the article that SS posted it sounds like he did pass but then they got him on a technicality and made him do half of it again.

If he came into camp in better shape with an improved attitude why try to screw him over like that?

Keep up the good work, coach. Is the conditioning test the new polygraph?
Seriously? You're going to blame this on the coach? This guy is getting millions of dollars, didn't show up for off season workouts b/c he had a personal trainer and is asked to do some conditioning drills and fails and it's the coaches ego? Sorry, but Shanahan has every right to run that fat bastard ragged until he proves himself. If Fat Ass was a real man and was working out like he said he was, he would've done everything in his power to pass that test and show everyone that he was indeed in great shape.

I hope Shanahan rides his ass like 10 cent whore with a fist full of fifties!

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Wait wait wait, how do we know this is a standard test? Do D-linemen normally get this kind of test?

If not, then how do we know if the test accurately reflects his ability(especially if the majority of D-Linemen may not pass this test). Again I dont know one way or another, just a question and not a rush to conclusion.

Tell you what, he's certainly not endearing anyone to himself pulling these stunts.

Respectfully, I think this is naive. The Redskins got exactly what they wanted to get out of this conditioning test. But I never doubted for a second that this would be the case, even before we knew the outcome.

This exercise is a Rorschach test. I can respect an argument that says that DTs in the NFL can never be in good enough condition, but I think it's telling that Kedric Golston and Howard Green were not asked to do 300 yard shuttles until failure. Aren't they important (first team) cogs in this machine? Shouldn't we test their conditioning?

They wouldn't have passed the same standards, btw. I'm okay with that, because they are football nose tackles, and not defensive backs or track athletes.

Yeah I can't understand blaming Shanahan. The days of the inmates running the asylum are over.
