It’s pretty well known that Washington Redskins defensive tackle/end Albert Haynesworth was not happy with the Redskins’ switch to the 3-4 defense. After a bunch of crying and whining from both sides, Albert finally showed up and decided to be a part of the team.
But, could it possibly be that Haynesworth now likes the very defense that kept him away from offseason workouts? Is it possible that he “Liked” the 3-4 defense on Facebook?
“It’s different, but I like it,” he said. “It’s something I’ve got to get used to. But other than that, it’s a good defense. They’re lining me up to pass rush, and that’s something really important to me. What I was told earlier is totally different from what we’re doing now. Getting with [defensive coordinator] Jim Haslett the last few weeks has really cleared up a lot of stuff, and I really enjoy it. It’s been great having him on my side, and really helped me get the defense.”
So maybe all is well now with the Redskins. Haynesworth was even asked about his wonderful relationship with head coach Mike Shanahan.
“Uh, he’s the head coach and I’m a player. It is what it is.”
We’re wondering if he truly loves the new defense or if he truly loves not having to pay any bonus money back.
