Albert Haynesworth will now be an All-Pro

The Washington Redskins have traded Albert Haynesworth to the Patriots. In Washington, Haynesworth was a bum. A malcontent, a horrible teammate and a stone, cold jackass. In New England, he'll turn into the best defensive lineman in football.

The move, first reported by ESPN and confirmed by me, is typical Bill Belichick. And it will work. Because this is what Belichick does. He takes reclamation projects, jerks and castoffs, like Randy Moss, shines them up, and turns them into Pro Bowlers.

There is no question -- no question at all -- that Haynesworth will be a great player once again the way he was in Tennessee. And all the Patriots will have given up is a fifth round pick.

Remember this: when Haynesworth was in Tennessee he was considered the best interior lineman in the sport at the time.

In some ways this trade is sad. Haynesworth is being rewarded for his disgraceful behavior in Washington. He's now going to the best organization in football after a shameful tenure with the Redskins. But hell. That's football.

I've called Belichick the best coach in the history of football and been mocked for it but it's true. He can coach anyone, anywhere, any time. He'll do it again with Haynesworth.

Fat Albert will soon be gone. Dominant Haynesworth is just around the corner.

Albert only want to do what Albert wants to do and if Bill B really insists on coaching then Albert will rebel. Lost in it all last year was how out of shape he was so it's more even then judt mental work.

Albert Haynesworth will now be an All-Pro

Pretty damn recently. Why don't you ask that same question to the other 32 teams and see where New England fits in
well, there's only 31 other teams, so that's one reason. But I'll ask the 31 others: How recently?
Pittsburgh? Yup!
Indy? Here!
Giants? Yo!
Pittsburgh? Yeah, still here.
Saints? Hea-yah.
Packers? Over here?

So that's 6 years. Wow. Bush was still in his first term when that season began. Lindsay Lohan was still a juvenile and not yet a felon. Reggie Bush was in his first paid football job and USC still thought they were the 2004 National Champs. And half the current NFL wasn't yet in the league.

I would not talk about the Pats and their players if you have no clue.... Vrabel came from Pitts as a free agent, Dillion came from Cincy as Free agent, Rodney Harrison came as free agent.  All brought us Superbowls, so signing older guys and getting the best out of them is possible.... By the way how many Superbowls have the Jets won in the last 10 years?

If there is anyone who can get the best out of Haynesworth,it's Bill Belichick,and maybe Rex Ryan. They both seem like the type of coach that Haynesworth would actually respect. Belichick because of his history with dealing with troubled players and Ryan because of his "player's coach" attitude and "swagger". I felt the same about Fisher when Haynesworth played for the Titans but evidently he didn't respect Fisher during his final year for the Titans. If it doesn't work out for the Patriots.....oh well,it was only for a five round pick.

Fat albert hasn't been the same since the Jets went into and undefeated Tennessee 2 years ago and whipped him like a rented mule.  That will once again happen this year.  The Pats haven't one in awhile.  Randy Moss brought in no rings.  Neither will albert, these scrap heaps haven't worked for Belichek.  Unless we are graded by probowls and not rings.  Where did Mike Vrable, Ted Bruschi and Tom Brady etc. etc. come from.  This signing makes me an even happier Jets fan.  How long until this bum is pouting on the sideline?  Let's also not forget that he hasn't played in over a year.
