Pats will wash stink away

The car wash is open.

That's what I say whenever the New England Patriots acquire a talent that has all kinds of issues.

There has to be a car wash outside the Patriots facility because the stink is always washed away.

Corey Dillon? Stink washed away. Randy Moss? Stink washed away -- for the most part. On and on it goes.

Now it's time to do  the same with Albert Haynesworth.The Patriots have agreed to trade Haynesworth for a fifth-round pick from the Washington Redskins, a league source confirmed.  When motivated, Haynesworth is one of the best interior players in the NFL.  When he's not, he's a lazy malcontent, which he was in Washington last year.

But look for Patriots coach Bill Belichcik to work his magic again with Haynesworth. 

He jsut might be a force again, which he was at times for the Titans.

"It won't hurt," said one coach when asked if he thought Belichcik would help. "I think he will be fired up for at least one year."

The car wash is open. Want to bet the stink gets washed away?

Obviously, Dillon and Moss both worked (unless you only count the amount of Super Bowls NE won before and after acquiring them). My point is that BB gets WAY too much credit for their success in NE. They were both highly successful before they ever went to the Pats. They both went from horrible teams to a great team. BB should be given credit for stealing them but it's nonsense to suggest that they wouldn't have been successful if they had been traded to some other playoff team.

The Patriots were 32nd . . . dead last. . .  in the league last season in 3rd down defense.  They couldn't pressure the QB.  Now they get a guy who ONLY wants to rush the QB.  Woolfork comes off the field on 3rd down passing situations.  The Pats just got his complimentary piece!  Who among you wouldn't be thrilled if your team found a pass rusher in the 5th round of the draft?  Belichik did it again!

Hayneswoth's biggest bitch in Washington is he didn't want to play Nose tackle and he won't have to do that in New England because the Patriots have a all pro Vince Wilfork playing there

If you actually watch the Pats, they use several fronts, sometimes 3 sometimes 4, and even sometimes just two..

They're going to need a truck wash, not a car wash, to scrub this obese turd.

So... Hatnesworth got fed up with Washington because they switched from his beloved 4-3 to a 3-4 he never got accustomed to, but now everything is peachy because he goes to New England, huh? Remind me again.... what DL formation do the Patriots use?

This is a typical, low risk/high reward move for the Pats. While I won't gush over this and guarantee it will work, I tend to trust BB on these. To the moronic Jet fan who said Moss and Dillon didn't work, please get a clue. They both worked.  Dillon ran for 1600yds one season, and Moss broke the TD reception one season. Even if that's all they did, that's called working. Once Moss reverted back to himself, he was gone.
If this works, that D-line will be extremely tough and extremely deep, Ty Warren, Vince Wilfork, Marcus Stroud, Haynesworth, Mike Wright and Ron Brace. If they show a 4 man front, how will an opposing oline block both Haynesworth and Wilfork on the interior? This also adds toughness to this D which was lacking last year.

Hopefully the Pats aren't done adding players, but again, low risk move.
