Haynesworth, Redskins find they're a bit of a punching bag
This Albert Haynesworth situation with the Redskins has reached the point of piling on. Everyone, it seems, has a wisecrack about his repeated failure to pass/inability to take a conditioning test. The latest Saturday was Darnell Dockett, the Arizona Cardinals' defensive tackle who played at Paint Branch (Md.) High.
He tweeted (@ddockett):
Getting ready 2 run this 300yd shuttle test!! I wish I can show yall live, cuz when I done w/ the 1st I'm gonna yell ive 2 BOO BOO *BREAK*!
Our test was 3x 300yds, I ran them in 57secs w/ 2min break between each one,!! I could have eating popcorn while running them!! #INSHAPE
Sunday brought the New York Giants' conditioning drills. Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported on Twitter (@thebluescreen) that the Giants were grading perhaps a little more generously than the Redskins:
RB Gartrell Johnson seems to be only one obviously struggling through the test. Lagging way behind his group in cross-field sprints. ... Apparently everyone passed the #NYG conditioning test. Gartrell Johnson apparently was graded on a slight curve.
An easy test, graded on a curve?
When asked via Twitter whether a certain someone could pass the Giants' test, Vacchiano replied:
I think even you-know-who could've passed the #NYG test. It helped that there was a port-o-potty on the sideline.
And then there's Steinberg (@dcsportsbog), who's tweeting things that were accomplished in less time than it has taken Haynesworth to pass this test: Battle of Gettysburg (in fairness, Union Army was buff) and some musical thingy by Shostakovich. He also notes that Haynesworth is not pictured on the Redskins' season tickets.
