Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

According to the Washington Post, Albert Haynesworth "apparently" needed a bathroom break during the second portion of his conditioning test Thursday, explaining his failure to finish.
The test consisted of two grueling 300-yard shuttle runs. He aced the first, but walked through the second, in apparent need of a bowel movement. Haynesworth will not be allowed to practice until he completes both runs. By all accounts, he's in good shape, so he should be fine on Friday's retake


Read this at PFT....this is too funny if this is true. HTTR!!!

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Look, it's Shanny's team, full stop. My guess is that AH took a bathroom break, and the coaches said fine, start over. And I bet they'd do that to any player, though AH certainly wasn't going to get special favors here.

What, should Shanny begin camp by giving AH special treatment because he's so good and such a key team player? **** that. I'm with Shanny 100% here.

I agree that this will be gone in a day or so, but the principle is clear: no special treatment for prima donnas. Those days are over. Time to become a good football TEAM!

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

From a different point of view: I know there are vets here, I wonder what my sgt would have said if I stopped my 2 mile run for a potty break.

(Actually I don't wonder, I would simply have failed).

Just get on the field, take the test and pass.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

I also wish there could have been a "People of Walmart" type shot of AH as MS told him he failed.

Not like he was going to just let him walk in as if nothing happened.

At the end of the day though, not a huge deal. So Haynesworth misses maybe one day of practice and is forced to sit and watch his teammates.
I'm not saying that this is right/wrong, fair/unfair, or that Shanahan is handling this the wrong way (though I am saying its inherently stubborn and childish), but if I'm head coach, that bolded part is exactly what I do. He walks in and goes to the second string like nothing happened.

To me, that "demotion", if you can even call it that, is completely fair. You weren't here, other guys were, we're going with them from day one. I'd probably do that much. But that's it. He's part of the second team defense from the moment he shows up. More football, less politics.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

In the end, it's not a team physical and not a big deal.

More media fishing for a story, really.

I say do that opposite. Make him practice and that's where you ride him harder than everyone else. Every drill, "not fast enough Albert. You're not hitting hard enough Albert. Line up again Albert. You're still considered a back up Albert." Keep that shit up to prove a point but don't hold him out of practice until he can run up and down the field.
That's a good point

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

A couple of things are probably going on here but the main one is Shanahan once again stressing, my team, my rules, my way. I have no problem with how he's treating Haynesworth with this whole ordeal. The test is standard for all NFL players-with variances based on position. Should Al be treated like a child? 'Make sure you go to the bathroom before you take the field, Al.' I don't think this will be much of an issue as camp goes on as long as he passes the test tomorrow.

All signs point to Haynesworth and Haslett having productive conversations about the upcoming season. Al is ego driven so don't be surprised if he has a big year if for no reason to stick it to critics. This is merely a blip, it will pass after the 24 hour cycle if he passes the test tomorrow morning.

They are worried he is going to get hurt because he cannot run a certain routine? Silly. Put him in and let him run over some of our OL. Then see who will get hurt.
x 2. this is such a non issue. the media is going to really run with this. the fat rookie from alabama that got drafted by balt failed his and the media was all over it. he passed today and it's over and done with.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Two questions:

1. Was everyone required to pass this test at some point?

and

2. Has everyone passed that took said conditioning test, particularly the other 300 pounders?

I read somewhere earlier today (PFT maybe?) that Haynesworth had to take it because he skipped the offseason program but players who reached a certain attendance level were exempted from the test.

I think MS wanted to send a message. No more no less. This will be a non issue in 3 days.

Well, what this does is humiliate his fat ass. The media is all over it and everywhere you look it says that he FAILED! That should be a highly motivating factor in a competitor who would not want everyone thinking he lied about his conditioning. We shall see how he responds.

And that seems totally reasonable. It's 100+ degrees out, these are 300+lbs guys--they better be in shape before they take the field, or serious things can happen. Now, it's probably already clear that AH is in shape, but come on. Do the friggin test and join the rest of your teammates. And, yeah, it's a good idea to use the bathroom BEFORE the test if you have to go.
