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.

Please why all the hero worship for a proven cheater.  You cant do anything with fat albert, there is no return to glory for a player who has done so much to ruin himself the past 2 years,  he is no longer in his prime and he let his body go something moss has never done.  He wont be a pro bowl and i doubt he will be anything more than a situational player  remember Billichick likes speed on the defense and he already had Wilfork in the middle.  As for your greatest coach ever the man was caught cheating,  as much as integrity and sportsmanship are keys to greatness his actions make him only better than average
Here's the unwritten rule of today ....

Until the Lions have back to back winning seasons, their fans must be seen and not heard.

I have to agree.  If Fat Al wasn't motivated by $100 million dollars he won't be motivated in New England.  For a $100 million I'd not only sack the QB I'd go after his family and friends.  But I also see this as a no risk proposition for New England.  The Pats gave up nothing to get him so he only has upside, I mean he can't do any worse then he did in Washington short of falling down on the field or pulling a butt muscle...oh wait...that already happened in D.C. so yah he won't do any worse only up from here.

Two Words- Adailius Thomas. Remember the money the Patsys threw at Thomas, only to watch him disappear ? As for Mr. Haynesworth; Titans coach Jeff Fisher was known as a players coach whose game-plan was hard nosed but his personal style was not. Fat Albert played well in that environment, exept when he was being suspended for cleating another player. Then came the BIG contract, and Mike Shannahan. Coach Shannahan is known as an offensive innovator and a demanding taskmaster. Albert haynesworth rebelled under that kind of authority. Now, suddenly, we are supposed to believe that Fat Albert will become a model citizen under the heartless reign of Mr Genius, the most self centered coach in the NFL ? "It's all about the team...." Bruschi, Brady, Harrison, et all. Haynesworth wil implode in this setting, and he'll be released just like the Great Randy was last season. Albert might do well in the NFL again, but he'll need a coach with a players touch, and Billichek is NOT known as a soft touch.

We just got Chad Ocho Cinco.Cool





Not something to be very happy about in my eyes. Hope I am wrong but I think between him and AH we could be looking at a very disrupted locker room.

this is going to going to save the patsies money - they'd have needed to buy all new wide-angled video equipment for taping Albert at practice if he went to an AFC East opponent.

Wait - what am I saing? Albert Haynesworth doesn't practice...

Love this deal!  Haynesworth will provide the disruptive presence that NE lacked last year.  

Great to see a post from a fellow Bucknell grad and New England fan!  I am from VT, and was at BU from '98-'02.  Did we overlap???
