Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

Albert Haynesworth failed his second conditioning test on Friday morning -- after failing a test on Thursday as well -- and is quickly becoming the biggest NFL training camp storyline . (Brett Favre is likely not pleased.)

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan had some pointed comments on Thursday night , but he wasn't alone. Haynesworth told NBC4 in DC , "I'm tired of this B.S., I just want to get on the field and play football."

The good (?) news for Haynesworth is that he'll get a THIRD shot to pass the test on Saturday, according to Jason Reid of the Washington Post .

Reid also notes two more things of interest: 1) Haynesworth must complete two 300-yard shuttle runs, according to sources, in under 71 seconds and 2) some players have "privately expressed concern" that Shanahan is simply trying to make an example out of Haynesworth.

If that's the case, it's certainly working.

Update (11:58): Washington made strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright available to the media. He confirmed that the test is indeed two 300-yard shuttle runs. The first must be completed in 70 seconds or less, and is followed by a two minute break, with a second 300-yard run that must be completed in 70-73 seconds. He also added, according to the WaPo 's Rick Maese on Twitter , that, "I expect him to pass it soon."

Please get off your high horse. Professional sports isnt about morals, Its about winning. What he is doing isnt going to help the team. The fact remains Haynesworth did nothing wrong. He didnt attend voluntary workouts. How is that bad behavior? If they wanted him there his contract should have been structured differently. He is no longer a good coach. He is a retread. He couldnt win in a weak division with a decent team. He wont win in a strong division with an average team. He is an even worse coach when he is the GM and he is the GM in DC. Allen is a pseudo GM who is more about marketing the team than being a true GM. He should have been rebuilding this team instead of betting the farm on past their prime veterans like Galloway. Dwelling on his past successes doesnt make Shanahan a good coach.

look haynsworth is paid to do what his coach tells him like it or not...if not let him apply for the coaches job then he can tell people what to do besides for the money he got he should shut up and do what hes told.

An obviously out of shape Allfat Moneysworth did pass 1/2 of the test on the first day so the test can't be that tough. He will pass it eventually and Shanny won't give him a pass and let him off the hook. Welcome to the new Redskins Alfat! The guy took a $21 mil check thus signing on for this. They explained that to him ahead of time and he agreed to it by taking the check.

It is obvious that Moneysworth has been put on notice and is being used as an example that the new Redskins regime means business.

Let me first say, I think this guy is a clown and definitely overpaid.

But, as Sportsfan52 pointed out....even in the top "conditioning" for a lineman, they are still LARGE men who are mostly packing more fat than muscle. Their conditioning is different than a QB, RB, WR, LB or DB. They RARELY run more than 40 yards at a time and NEVER run 300-600 yards in 70 seconds during a game.  The NFL Coaches want these guys to be big 300+ pounds, but then thay want them to run like Wide-Outs....seems like they are setting up an unfair scenario. 

Lets also not forget that the NFL Coaches are destroying these mens health. Most of these guys like Haynesworth have LB frames, but pack on the extra weight because they are required to be at a certain weight range. After their career is over many of them develop sleep Apnia, arthritis and gain more weight because their metabolisms are all jacked up. 

Looking at statistical weight of players in the NFL, it is impossible for a man less than 300 pounds to make it as an NFL Lineman. So, if you want to be a pro lineman and weigh between 250 and 280 you will at least have to gain 20 pounds and more than likely between 50 and 70 pounds. 

For you little skinny guys on here running your mouth about FATTIES, try throwing 70 extra pounds on your body and see if you can even run 50 feet.

Sorry, Ganja... the Redskins fail time and time again and Shanaham knows this and has watched injuries add up.  Conditioned and fit players lead to fewer injuries, so I side with Shanahan on that.  If Shanahan is making an example out of Twinkiesworth, it's deserved, as he has always been overweight.  EAT CROW YOU SAY???????  Groin and hamstring problems typically (but not always) are a direct result of not using the appropriate muscles frequently, so I expect Fatsworth to develop some problem shortly, which may or may not be linked to his desire to have no desire unless he gets what he wants.  NOBODY in the NFL has failed a test such as this TWICE.  I think buttertartsworth should start shopping in the produce section of a grocery store as opposed to passing through a drive-thru.
