08:00 AM ET 08.29 | Albert Haynesworth is certainly not Bill Belichick's first attemept at a reclamation project. New England should hold out hope that this is history repeating itself and Haynesworth will explode from the shadows the way [Randy Moss] once did. The Pats should do so because they may really, really need him. The resurrection of Albert Haynesworth may no longer be a luxury for New England. What once looked like a player needing a franchise to salvage his career may turn out to be about a franchise needing a player to keep it pointed in the right direction. As the Detroit Lions ran right through and passed right over the New England defensive line here Saturday, en route to a thorough 34-10 preseason victory, the presence of Big Albert loomed.

Big Albert?, all this time I thought his name was Fat Albert

What? Haynesworth is going to solve the O line weaknesses? I don't think so.

Desperate Pats need Haynesworth

The Hoodie will use this to fire up the team. They need a disappointing performance now and then to remind them that they have to actually work against some teams. In this case, it didn't even cost them a real game to get the wake-up call.

The Pats have been known to sandbag, playing just well enough to win without looking very good, and then they turn it on for a big game a few weeks later.

And, hidden behind the "what's wrong with the Patriots?" question is "Just how good IS this Detroit team?"

If Stafford stays healthy all year they are a 10 win team

I feel I can safely say without hyperbole that this article is the dumbest thing ever written since.

August 29, 2011  08:36 AM ET

Just wait 'til we get our Haynesworth on you!

Even the picture they chose is ominous:

If Suh stays healthy all year, and doesn't get arrested for manslaughter during a game, the Lions could be more dangerous than that. They could.....go.....all....the.....way!

No, not really. Teams that haven't been to the playoffs for a long time usually go one-and-done. But they are going to make a statement.

It was one game and the Lions front four pounded Brady without having to Blitz. So, Brady had a bad game, as he repeatedly does when pressured with just four pass rushers.

Yeah he can't just keep throwing quarterbacks down by their helmet and facemask and punching people like Mankins... Goodell will make Suh his guinea pig.. so sad though.. such a watered down league now.
