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."

Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

It's tough to side with haynesworth, because he makes a lot of money and he has a big mouth..however..the weasel is simply doing this as punishment.

For all you people who bring up "sprinting"..the Shuttle is not simply a sprint..and it (I believe) is TWO 300 yard shuttles..the cones are set up 25 yards apart for haynesworth.





Here's the NFL combine 60 yard shuttle...Now what exactly is a 300 yard shuttle?(and two of them?)


Now..Haynesworth did pass the 1st one in under 70 seconds the first day..however..exceeded his 2 minute break and thus was made to start over..and failed.

Day 2..haynesworth ran the first one in 71 seconds..another failure.

This is NOT about haynesworth being out of shape..this is about the weasel punishing haynesworth..period.

Maybe there's some good..as a Coach has to have control of the team, however..there is also the problem of being heavy-handed and too much of a PR--ick.

As I said..tough to side with Haynesworth..just as tough to side with Weasel...

postrl757,
your post seems borderline inappropriate. And by that I mean its wildly offensive and very unnecessary to use the N-word while trying to insult the guy. Grow up man, its 2010, you don't live in 1960s Mississippi, loser.

Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

Your forgetting alittle teeny tiny detail..... ITS A TEAM GAME! Its not the Washington Haynesworths, its the Redskins. Lemme break it down for you. Hayneworth did basically nada last year except hurt the team and cause distractions. He is out of shape and is as greedy and self praiseworthy as they come. Not to mention that the team has almost completely re-staffed. At my job I do what my boss tells me, if my current boss gets fired then I am FORCED to do what my new boss tells me to do even if A: I dont agree with it or B: Its not the same as before. Me personally I would just like to see haynesworth be worth the money they paid cause even when they were running HIS DEFENSE he was horrable and this team obviously needs to make changes to do better than last year. Plus you have to be a retard to be dogging on Shannahan. Like him or not he is a hall of fame coach that has won super bowls. Dont hate on him and especially not for a fat disgruntled THIEF like Haynesworth who wants to take money but not play. And news flash buddy, the Redskins will not only do better than last year they will get to the playoffs. Get off the haynesworth bandwagon and open your eyes.

My guess is they are just doing this to him to make him look and feel like a jacka$$. In a day or 2 they will come out and say he passed the test even though I guarantee his fat a$$ couldn't pass that test to save his life. They will say he did just to make things seem rosey again and they will have gotten their point across to him.

The next conditioning test will probably be easier.  Even if Haynesworth fails, I'm sure he'll be cleared to practice.

I agree in part with you. I DO think he could be a good NT but he would be better left as a DT. Where haynesworth lost all of his support from people, is when he took that $21 million check and said yeah I will play. He knew then the defense had been switched to a 3-4 and they were going to ask him to be the NT. He is the type of self centered player that would fake an injury just so he doesn't have to play in a spot he doesn't like.

@Redwings. First of all, you're the idiot. How are you going to run a football team if everyone do what ever the freak they want to do? Even if Shanahan is targeting Heynesworth alone, it's fair. He's the biggest paid D player with discipline problems. It doesn't matter how much you're worth in the market, if you show up to work and don't do what your boss tell you to do then you're due for some disciplinary actions. Why don't YOU go tell your fcking boss that you want to do whatever you want to do, and they hired you at what every salary they're paying you because that's your market worth.

;  Did Ray Lewis want to run a 3-4 after years of a 4-3? Nope, but he won an MVP playing in both systems. Staying with the Redskins, Jason Campbell went through numerous coaches and offensive systems, and although he doesn't have the amount of talent Haynesworth has, he kept his mouth shut and attempted to adapt.  Haynesworth is obviously a talent at his position, which begs the question, "Why can't he translate his skills and adapt?" I'm all for players holding-out for money, but he got the money!!!! tons of $$$. It really shows Haynesworth list of priorties; 1) $$$$$, 2) Personal Stats, 3) $$$ & Personal Stats ...10) winning

Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

Interesting is how you buffoons don't see this for what it is.  This is NOT about testing.  This is NOT about Haynesworth not being in shape.

Haynesworth is notoriously known for not being in shape and getting hurt.

You're a buffoon for denying that.

This IS about Shanahan hating Haynesworth and is trying to make life miserable for him.   If you believe this is about anything else, then you sir are mentally challenged, know NOTHING about football and should leave these boards.


Shanahan could have already gotten rid of Haynesworth. He didn't want to because he knows a healthy Haynesworth can be a force for the Redskins.

Unfortunately, he doesn't have a healthy Haynesworth. He has a fat, lazy Haynesworth.

And yeah...he's going to make like miserable for him and I don't really see a problem with that.

This is about a team that said all the right things to sign Haynesworth a while back.  This is about a team that changed coaches and have suddenly changed their ways and are trying to force it down Haynesworth's throat.

Awwww....poor fatty is getting treated bad? I feel so bad for him. Really, I do. 

And stop telling me how much money he makes, it doesn't matter. 

Actually...it does. Because when a team invests that much money in a player he is obligated to fulfill his end of the deal. That is being in shape and being ready to play.

Haynesworth didn't have to beg for that money... the Skins paid it because at that time it was MARKET VALUE for a player like Haynesworth.  Or let me guess.  You retards believe the Skins didn't know what other organizations were willing to pay and they just guessed and overpaid him right?  Stupid morons... these owners know everything they need to know before negotiations begin.. they don't just wing it and pay people whatever.. regardless of what you think of Snyder... he's smarter then most of us can dream of being... that's why he owns an NFL team and is worth hundreds of millions of dollars and you and I aren't....

They signed a player who performed well in Tennessee. They paid him a lot of money to perform to the best of his ability. Snyder has a history of overpaying for free agents. But that doesn't mean Haynesworth is off the hook for performance.

The Skins are trying to break Haynesworth.  You wait and see... you read it here first.  The Skins will very soon CUT him and take sue him for the signing bonus. I mean, it won't work.  They won't win a thing but they'll try to shake him down.  If they are lucky and if he wants to avoid legal costs and crap he might settle for a few million dollars that he'll just pick up from another team as a signing bonus but either way, he won't be on the Skins much longer.

If he is unable to pass the tests they give him...they will put him on the PUP list. And then they will have to give him an injury settlement if they want to drop him. That's an NFL rule. You can't cut a player with a guaranteed contract for injury reasons. You have to offer a settlement.

What the Skins are doing is smart. Why let the lazy fatass continue to collect money if he doesn't want to work for it?

And why do you defend someone who has no pride in the game? No pride in the uniform he wears? And only cares about cashing checks?
