    Maybe he'll replace Sanders. That would be a surprise.

    Maybe Wide Receiver?

    No?

    "In addition to Sanders, the Pats could still move Brandon Meriweather..."

    Oh come on Rapoport :rolleyes:

    Re: No Haynesworth against the G-Men

    I like this move. Getting Albert in physical shape is paramount to his future success. Athletes who are not in shape get injured far more than the athletes that are in good or decent shape. AL's physical conditioning status must have been brutal Obviously. Why Rush the monster if he is not ready? I do not want him injured do you?

    I LOL'd @ the report of Al having an undisclosed injury when it was announced. The only undisclosed bit was the really out of shape part (no injury).:cool::bricks::cool:

    While he may have been somewhat out of shape (speculation), or at least out of Patriot shape, he has regularly taken part in a knee injection regimen that he has done many yrs in a row during TC. That is likely the 'undisclosed' injury.

    Re: No Haynesworth against the G-Men

    What exactly is "out of Patriot shape?" Is that some kind of special super power shape as compared with the rest of the league?

    While it's obvious he isn't ready to play because of his conditioning, maybe it is injury related, or his knee is a lot worse than perceived, he did have a chronic knee condition flare up in Washington.

    It's also reasonable to think he basically let himself go in Wash to get released, and the Pats are doing the smart thing and trying to bring him back slowly.

    The question is, does he have enough left to warrant the special attention, when the rest of the team is busting their ass to get ready for the season?

    Or the Patriots are waiting until week one of the regular season to unleash the hellish tandem of two that is Wilfork and Haynesworth on opponents.

    Re: No Haynesworth against the G-Men

    Apparently so, based on the past 10 years, last season's 14-2 record in a 'rebuilding' season with one of the NFL's greenest/youngest defenses, and the ONLY team in NFL history to go 16-0, and eventually even 18-0.

    Thinking that the standard is higher here than in Washington is not exactly rocket science.

    He has, as mentioned, regularly received Synvisc treatments just about every offseason or TC since 2006-2007. I am quite sure that Belichick knew about his situation. It is a long season, especially when you play almost every yr into January. It is a BB norm to allow proven vets to rest up during the TC sessions, so most of us don't see it as much of an issue at all. That is left to the ignorant.

    Yeah, that's what happened. It had nothing to do with his problems from day one with Shanahan, or his dislike for his role in a 3-4 defense. It was a big conspiracy where he "let himself go" just one yr removed from being the premeir free agent on the market. Instead of being dumb enough to give him a 100+ million dollar contract, we traded a 6th rd pick (in 2013 to boot), and a bucket of golfballs for him. The team then promptly signed him to a super low-risk/high-reward pact of approximately 1 million dollars. If he doesn't work out, it is not much different than picking up a league minimum vet who gets cut on a daily basis.

    As stated before, it is quite common for BB to give the proven vets time to heal and rest, due to the main goal of evaluating the players who are in need to make the 53 man roster. He has done it plenty of times before. If he doesn't work out, there is not much of anything lost at all, if he does work out Belichick will look like a genius...again.

    Enjoy your 43 yr streak of...nothing...or was that changed by your playoff wins in the divisional round the past 2 yrs?

    Re: No Haynesworth against the G-Men

    He's just bitter that even IF Haynesworth doesn't work out, we still have Ellis, Carter, Wilfork, G.Warren, Anderson, Pryor, Wright et al to take his place---all while losing a lousy, worthless 6th rd pick in 2013.

    If his team would have made the move, we'd be hearing about their 3rd SB title in a row, instead his head coach has to put out a message to the rest of the NFL to "please play the Patriots tougher.." LOL :D

    good point. I forgot about that lubrication in knee injection thing. That sounds a little painful.:eek:

    First play of the season I bet Chad henne will get sandwiched between haynesworth and wilfork and will be forced to retire after having most of his body crushed.

    "you're red sox went nearly a century."

    No need to reinforce the ignorance point.

    you're? It's 'Your". "you're" is like "you are". Capital letters start a sentence.

    red sox? "Red Sox"

    They went "nearly a century". All the teams over 100 years old like went nearly a century.

    We do tend to like literacy around here.

    However, my understanding is that team was named due to the fact that "PLANE" was too big a word.
