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."
