    Coaching was a problem......:brow:
     
    • High Five High Five x 1
  2. He'll be motivated to change his image. And with the Pats rotating defense they can keep him fresh (and happy) using him primarily as a 4-3 DT.

    Isn't that the normal percentage for him? Between water breaks and fake injuries?

    its basically a low risk/high reward type deal for the pats as they only lost a 5th round pick along with getting when he wants ot be a top 5 dt in the league.....2014 he will be restructured by then if he wants to play with them still or be cut....but for the pats....just like with randy they are going out on a limb and it could be a big bang or bust...for them....its worth the risk i guess...

    better them than us

    They will use him as a strong side DE as much as a DT in a 4-3. What they won't do is use him as a NT.

    I agree he is motivated to change his image and the Pats got a guy who could be a beast for a few years. Also he didn't cost them anything. The way they inherit his contract means if he is a problem they simply dump him. If he works out they win a championship or two.

    That is why I wanted to see the Titans make a move for him. With AH it is all about motivation. The ability is there still. Now he will be motivated to show the Skins were idiots and to win a championship at which time he will also go to a pro bowl or two and maybe finish his career as a very good player. At least those are his motives and I'm not sure he won't succeed. My God the Pats don't even give up the draft pick until 2013. WTF.
     
  6. He didn't want to play 3-4 DE in Washington. Personally, I think he'd be a good one, but I assume he won't want to do in NE either. Maybe Belichick can motivate him into it, but that remains to be seen.

    I can see him filling in for a few snaps in the 3-4 as long as they keep him happy primarily as a 4-3 DT. But will he give the effort?

    The Pats always take the unhappy vets and somehow they have great seasons.. i.e Randy Moss and Corey Dillon.

    Wilfork and Haynesworth will be two huge guys to get by in the middle.

    I'm surprised the Eagles didn't make a move for Al.

    lol You think the Redskins would let Jim Washburn get a hold of Haynesworth? Why do you think they traded him to the AFC for a future late round pick and a ham sandwich? To keep him away from the Eagles!!!!!

    Him and Vince Wolfork on the same team? That's kinda scary.

    I think people are saying that Haynesworth sucks now, because of the fact that we didn't get him back. It doesn't matter what anyone really says about him, because the guy is still a beast (when he wants to) and I for one, wanted him back in TN.

    I can't wait to see what happens to him when he blows up and starts taking plays off again
