Mike Shanahan gives--a little--on Albert Haynesworth

Albert Haynesworth eventually may be permitted to practice with the Redskins even if he does not pass his conditioning test, Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday after the morning practice session at Redskins Park.

While it appeared earlier in the day that Haynesworth skipped the test Monday morning, Shanahan said the lineman, in fact, had attempted the running drill but experienced irritation in his knee and couldn't complete it. That marked the third time Haynesworth attempted Shanahan's mandatory conditioning test and failed.

Haynesworth was again early to Redskins Park Monday, and while defensive coordinator Jim Haslett looked on, he began the test of two, timed 300-yard shuttle runs but quickly stopped because of knee soreness.

"He ran three 25 yards back and forth and [his] knee was irritated, so obviously he stopped," Shanahan said. "But like we talked about [Sunday], he'll go through our walk-throughs and he'll be out there through practice. He'll get his conditioning in between and his treatment in between."

After Haynesworth injured his knee while running Friday, team medical personnel suggested he rest and receive therapy before attempting the test again. Haynesworth missed all but one day of Shanahan's first offseason program.

"That's one of the reasons he's not out there practicing with the team," Shanahan said. "You've got to be in certain shape to go through a practice. And that knee after three sprints, or back and forth, couldn't go any further. Hopefully, with treatment, it gets better and he gets in football shape and is out there ready to play with his teammates."

But if this drags on much longer, Shanahan may let Haynesworth practice regardless of his results on the test. "Possibly," Shanahan said. "You'll just have to stick around."

Brian Baldinger:
"But you're asking Donovan to throw a pin-point pass 30 yards downfield to Santana Moss, that's going to be hard to do."

Mike Wise:
"Beyond the leadership....the 30-yard darts on a rope, this is why McNabb is worth the investment.:"

So how does McNabb throw 30 yard passes exactly? I'm gettin' kinda confused, fellas.

PuuuuLEASE! I can't stand this much longer. What a piece of crap this man is. I only hope he is truly bothered by the knee but everything screams that he's just such a pu$$y in that body he has.

Shanahan is playing it the right way- indicating it all the more reason he needs to pass the conditioning test before he practices. And it illustrates all the more that AH should've been there in the first place.

I can't stand this tool!

***Notes From Today's Practice***

1st play of of 11 on 11 was a sack. This would set the tone for the rest of the day.

About 4th or 5th play McNabb his Austin in stride for a long TD. Austin got behind Rogers and Landry in a scene all too familiar for Redskin Fans.

McNabb didn't complete a lot of passes today, but it's evident he's not afraid to go down field. He threw 2 TDs(bomb to Austin and a 20yarder to Davis) and 2 INTS today. McNabb did show the ability to recognize the blitz and get the ball out early.

Grossman had the best day connecting on several intermediate routes hitting Cooley and Williams for decent YAC. He also tossed a 15 yarder to Parker who most certainly would've taken it to the house. Another play Grossman eluded the rush and hit Galloway for about a 50 yard bomb. Galloway made a good diving catch.

Colt threw the first INT today. A low pass to Vickers who could not hold on and the ball popped up into Westbrooks hands. Colt doesn't have too much zip in his throws. Nothing really note worthy from him.

The run game for the most part was not too effective, but there were some good ones.

Parker got around the right corner for what probably would've been a TD. Parker was hitting the hole pretty good, when it was there. Parker had two other decent runs up the middle and cutting to the left.

Larry Johnson had the most productive day, gaining tough yardage up the middle.

CP didn't take too many reps

Torain has ability to make a few people miss and he can hit a lil bit. On one play Torain clocked a blitzing LB, knocking him to the ground.

Torain and Young were really struggling in individual blocking drills. LJ looked decent and CP-U already know!

Keiland Williams will not make the squad.

Moss and Galloway were your starters with Armstrong looking good as the 2nd/3rd option. Kyle has our WR's lining up everywhere. It seemed every WR got opportunities in the slot and out wide. Devin had a few nice catches and always seemed to get YAC.

Cooley caught a pass or two and Davis caught some passes and a TD. Davis could be seen lining up out wide as well.

O-line-Our Rookie looks good, but the D got a lot of pressure today. Again not too many running lanes open today.

Our defense consistently got pressure today and from my count about 11 or 12 sacks today.

There was a lot of movement and different looks. Sometimes both OLB on one side with three D-linemen heavy on the other side. It's sight for sore eyes after watching Blaches generic D last year. I even saw a 2-4-5 nickel package out there with the two OLB standing up at the RE and LE spots.

Expect Moore to be our starting FS. He picked off Mcnabb twice today and looked superb in coverage. Even man to man on TE's.

Landry was moving around a lot and all around our secondary was blitzing. Tryon looks good too. He got an INT today on a Rex Grossmen underthrow. Barnes and Tryon were taking reps with the second team as well as Buchanon and Blackmon.

***Other Notes***

Bartel on a bad snap unwisely made a bad pitch to the running back for a fumbled recovered by the D.

CP stalemated Orakpo in blocking drills

Barnes leveled LJ on a run to the left. Barnes can lay some wood.

CP, McNabb and Haynesworth were chit-chating it up on the sidelines.

Special teams practiced timing on onside kick unit and safety punt unit.

No injuries.

"I just want the guy to get on the field and show us that he's still got something left in the tank."

NFL QBs routinely are productive into their mid-to-late 30s, and McNabb keeps himself in top condition. There's no reason to believe that DM can't continue to play well for 3-4 more years.

Posted by: rufus_t_firefly

Did this a while back. Took a cross section of QBs (about 20), and only selected those that were comparable to McNabb through his current age (ie, guys who'd been successful, multiple Pro Bowls, etc). Of the 20, 14 were worse, only Favre was better. 5 were comparable.

The 5 that were comparable averaged 4 more seasons as a full-time starter. Of those 20 seasons, they were evenly divided between good seasons (90+ QB rating), average seasons (QB rating in the 80's) and bad seasons (below 80 rating).

Obviously, only time will tell if McNabb is great for years to come or if he's got a couple of good years left and that's it. But the odds say ... McNabb (w/slight optimism) has 2 more strong years and 1 decent year left in him.

@Pepper5

I saw the same thing. I think Baldinger was referring to Santana Moss's inability to create space in the open field due to (age, lack of size, or fill in your own reason). He had just finished discussing Santana as being our #1 wideout and said something to the effect of "we know what Santana can do". I took that to mean, McNabb can still throw the 30-yard stingers but needs a receiver who can get better separation.

When I heard that Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth had failed his conditioning test, my first thought was not that he's a bum for not showing up to training camp out of shape, and it was not that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is foolish to treat a 350-pound defensive tackle like a freshman on the high school track team.

My first thought, egocentric man that I am, was, Could I do that?

Obviously, if the conditioning test were anything having to do with physical strength, I'd have zero chance of doing something that Haynesworth could not. But the test is actually a 300-yard shuttle run that must be completed in 70 seconds, followed by a 3.5-minute rest, followed by another 300-yard shuttle run, this one needing to be completed in 73 seconds. I was pretty sure I could do that.

And so I tried. When it first occurred to me to try, I was under the mistaken impression that it was an original idea, but before I had a chance to head out to the local football field, I found out that half the Washington, D.C. media has already tried it, some successfully, others not. One of those who passed the Redskins conditioning test was James Fallows, the 61-year-old writer for The Atlantic, which made me fearful that I'd look even more pathetic than usual if I failed.

On the first 300-yard run I kept an eye on my stopwatch as I ran, trying to pace myself so that I did every 50 yards in 11 seconds. Keeping that pace, I reached the 250-yard mark with my watch showing 55 seconds, and for the final 50 yards I slowed down a little bit to conserve energy for the second run, finishing the first in 68 seconds, two seconds faster than Haynesworth managed when he first attempted the test.

After the break, I didn't try to pace myself on the second 300-yard run: I just ran as fast as I could for the whole thing. By the midway point I was breathing heavily and feeling the lactic acid building up in my legs, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about calling this whole silly experiment off, but I pushed through and saw my stopwatch reading 1:09 at the end of my second 300. Unlike Haynesworth (who took a 10-minute break after finishing his first 300 and wasn't even allowed to try to run the second), I had completed it.

Having previously attempted to measure up to the standards of the Presidential Physical Fitness Challenge, I'd have to say that what the Redskins are asking Haynesworth to do is easier than what the President asks fifth graders to do. Then again, the President doesn't ask fifth graders to attack a double team from a couple of NFL offensive linemen.

So, the team brings in Beck, has him practice to see if he really is all that's advertised, and then cuts one of the QB's - presumably Brennan. One interesting thing is Beck was being coached by Jim Zorn, who is now the QB coach for the Ravens.

Trouble is, the shuttle run is the bare minimum... a sort of entrance exam, if you will... to show that a player is ready to begin pre-season training and then work up to regular season form. But it looks like AH92 won't even able to say that he is ready to begin the pre-season work... let alone the regular season stuff.

Another option could be to put him on the Physically Unable to Perform list, and start docking his pay. Will defer to the lawyers for a reading on whether his failure to show up in sufficient shape is grounds for a breach of contract suit that might be aimed at recoving some of the earlier payments... especially since he decided to do it his own way... but regardless, I think it has been clearly established this Dude isn't worth paying another dime... at least so long as he unable to do even the bare minimum of pre-season preparation, training and conditioning.

Well, at least one thing Baldy will never be called is....overrated. He's simply not rated at all. Period. Whether that be as a player or as the bottom-rung sportscaster. Hell, just the fact that Baldy is so familiar with the Redskins over the last few years speaks to where he is on the depth charts for NFL game announcers.

How is it possible that a QB can lead a team to (NFC EAST) division championships 4 CONSECUTIVE YEARS, 5 CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES and 1 SUPER BOWL
and be considered among the most overrated QB's ever????

I am literally sitting here, mouth agape, that some loser, never-was whose last name conjures images of of being kicked in the fellas can be taken seriously.

Hate Hynesworth now. Call him names. Wait until the season starts. You think Haslett see how important Haynesworth isn't important to his plans? The main thing is Haslett doesn't have to rig the test as I think he was planning to do. Haynesworth lost the trade war but he won the battle of shuttlecock. I think AH is also winning the nose tackle conflict. So Haynesworth got the money, wont be playing much if any nose tackle and didn't have to pass their stupid physical. Looks like Haynesworth is throwing that considerable weight around camp. Anything else we do that troubles you Mr. Haynesworth? Have some more money. Maybe Snyder finally stepped in and told Coach that he is sick of Coach badgering his highest paid employee and that he would like to get him back to work now. Besides, Shanahan is focused on his new boytoy Devin Thomas. He doesn't have time to worry about Haynesworth. Shanahan is in love.

Personally, I think this is all staged by the Redskins and Haynesworth. Having missed all of the OTA's, he had no idea what to do when training camp opened. By having a tacit agreement with Shanahan to "fail" the conditioning test, it gives management 5-6 days to work with him and let him get a handle on the defense. It will make the transition back into a practicing rotation with his teammates much easier. IT IS STAGED !!!

Whether AH is overpaid is hard to say. He's only played one season but it already feels like he has been here for an eternity. So much is media driven. Lets see what he does this season. Maybe he will be worth the money if the Redskins actually accomplish something this season. Is he worth being the highest paid defensive player in the NFL? Ask Snyder.

He will be one of the reasons that the Redskins have a real shot at the Super Bowl. As Haynesworth could say" Hate me now for in the end you shall love me again, My Dears". And to that I bid a warm Hawaiian aloha.
