When you trade with the Patriots you may as well take off your clothes, hand em over and walk home naked. They always win. So heres the point, when he gives 100% Haynesworth is the most dominate player of this decade.
Haynesworth will be star, New England will be good, and Washington will look stupid. Right or wrong, thats what happens when you trade with the Patriots.

Not sure What makes him the most dominate player of the decade. Is it his 30 sacks in 9 years for his career or the fact that after he got a huge contract he got lazy?
Yes he had 2 really good years with the Titans. Good not great.
Bottom line is he got lazy after his contract. He couldn't even pass his physical in the off-season to play last year. He eventualy did and only played in 8 games.
Do I think he'll be motivated to try harder while playing for the Patriots? Yes will he be the best d-lineman in the game? No. So with that said there is no way he'll get defensive player of the year.
If he buys into the Patriots system he'll buy into a team 1st atmosphere. That means he's gonna have to be more humble about his playing time and his assignments during his time with the Patriots. Can he? sure. Is it likely? No.
He will make an impact but not a huge one.

Tackles arent known for sacks, the fact that a person can be a dominant run stuffer and get penetration in the passing game itself is amazing, only He and Sapp in recent memory fit that category. In a Contract year Haynesworth is the most Dominate defensive player in the league. Thats how he inked a 100 Million $ contract with 41Million guaranteed my friend.
The track record speaks for itself. When you trade with the Patriots they make an idiot out of you.
To Loki: They already look stupid. They guaranteed 41M for nothing and now the Patriots will sign him to a $5 million dollar deal and trade him next year for 2 draft picks.

No not nessesarly but that is what made Haynesworth one of the best for his 2 really good years with the Titans.
Yes and like you said "in a contract year haynesworth was the most dominant player in the league."
Sure doesn't sound like a decade of dominance to me.
I'm very aware the Redskins overpaid for him. And now look at him he's got a back up salary.
He's been know to be lazy get flagged for stupid penalties and casue lockeroom problems.
I just don't see how his last 2 years can make you assume he'll be defensive player of the year for the 2011 season. No matter what team he's on. I believe he will improve but come on Defensive player of the year?
