NFL  > General NFL  > Haynesworth still not taking conditioning test?
August 1, 2010, 06:08 PM
So Albert shows up to camp in such poor shape that as of Sunday he had still not passed/taken the test. I guess unless he takes the test he cannot take to the field. Having skipped the OTAs he is obliged to take the test.

Will he ever pass the test or will the Skins pass on fat Albert?

He should pass, but what a load that guy is. He's still crying about switching to a 3-4 D, and he expected to be traded. Too bad so many of these players nowadays can't have a strong work ethic and pride in the job they do. It's the me, me me era, and Haynesworth has obviously been taking that approach with food. Mix in a salad and some exercise once in a blue moon, Big Boy! Good for Shanahan, instilling discipline, refusing to make an exception, and forcing that hunka blubber to run 300 yards in 25 yard stints in 70 seconds or better.

Albert made his own bed. I'm pretty sure there's nobody around who would want to trade for him. Or even take him for nothing. Not even "Al the 'malcontent's' pal" in Oakland.

Not 100% sure but Shanahan and the GM offered to let him go, that's right, no trade, not draft choices, just go......well no one came calling! LOL what a wake up call for Fat Albert. The other piece is since Skins paid him and offered to let him go if he doesn't show his bonus and other $$s may be at risk. So in spite of his mewling about a 3-4 etc Albert still needs to come to the team or jeopardize his money. There may be a clause or other "hooks" in there that would permit the Skins to get their money back. I hope they rake this fat toad over the coals as he is an embarrassment to the real players in the league and has poisoned the well for others who come behind him. I hope Shanahan finds a way to get him to leave town broke and with a mouthful of humble pie as well.

Albert Haynesworth is an awesome, very intimidating, dominant defensive presence...that being said...i think he's also a very selfish person. If your gonna do all this crying about the new defensive scheme and cause this much uproar in the offseason, you could at least keep your self in shape heading into camp, to keep up your end of the deal. Just my opinion though.

He is a good player but he whines too much and apparently he is very lazy. If this is how he acts he is not worth no 100 million.

Even Peter King is bashing on Fat Albert today....full description of the "test" on page 4 of King's MMQB for those interested. Word is that Mike Golic is to do the test today somewhere on ESPN's grounds.....just to see if a 45 yr old Px-90 advocate is in better shape than Fat Albert...should be funny.

so what is the message sent when Shanahan finally capitulates and lets Fat Albert begin practicing as soon as the knee is "better"?

Hey, that's not nice! Norm is a nice guy, he doesn't deserved to be compared to Fat Favre loving Fool known as Peter King.

I heard the load passed the test today. Nice!

True statement but I bet he had the benefit of a generous "spot". They claim he came in at like 63 and 70 seconds. Below the requirement, naturally they gave him a pad. I would like to see it on video with a running clock.

I am bashing on him after seeing the amount of work and effort a guy like Jerry Rice (GOAT) put in for so long and this guy can't even show up for camp with an additional $21M in his pocket and in shape?

It'll be interesting to see how long this lasts. Will the team give in eventually or will he?
