Some perspective on how pathetic Haynesworth is

You know that super challenging conditioning test that Mike Shanahan is subjecting poor Albert Haynesworth to? People all over the country are giving it a whirl – and a large chunk of those people are passing. The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg takes a quick look at this (and Steinberg has YouTube footage to back up his claims):

The best attempt yet, though, was pulled off by veteran magazine writer James Fallows of The Atlantic. Fallows reported that he "just barely made it, in both the first and second passes, but I did meet the time standards." Also, he's 61 years old.

ESPN’s Mike Golic will be attempting the test on NFL Live today. Golic is in his late 40s and has been out of football since 1994.

The test is two 300-yard runs, broken down into 25-yard segments (in other words, run 25 yards back and forth six times). The first run must be completed within 71 seconds. After a two minute break, the second run must be completed within 73 seconds. Haynesworth failed the test Thursday and Friday, and then took the weekend off to nurse a sore knee and tired legs.

UPDATE: The Washington Post reports that Haynesworth missed Monday morning's conditioning test due to his sore knee. Thus, he will miss at least two more practices.

Wow. Just Wow.

I certainly give Mr. Fallows props for completing the test - I'm much younger, and I know I couldn't do that test.  That makes Haynesworth's saga that much more puzzling... I do hope he gets on the field eventually, but this is going to be a PR nightmare hanging over him until he starts producing.

So fat Albert has sore knees and legs from attempting this test twice in two days.  That's 600 yards of running each day for two days and his legs can't handle it?????


He is obviously not in shape to play an NFL game.

Hi my name is Albert Haynesworth and I like to step on peoples faces, then sign lucrative contracts and cry about going to a 3-4 defense on a team with a coach who has super bowl rings. I am a big fat loser and a piece of human trash.

This is impressive amounts of embarrassing. The fact that a 29 year old NFL player cannot complete this is a diss to Albert Haynsworth and the entire lineage of his last name. I've seen the most lanky, goofy, uncoordinated kids at a high school level complete this same test but required to do so in less time. Congratulations, Albert, you're doing it prime time in the NFL. Bravo!

I am an ancient Egyptian mummy,
I have strips of cloth wrapped around my entire body,
I am entombed in a granite sarcophagus,
My brain was removed from my skull with a long spoon like device,
My organs were put in clay jars,

I STILL PASSED THE TEST!

Enough said....
