Mike Shanahan doesn’t like Albert Haynesworth. The coach of the Washington Redskins wants to make life as difficult as possible for the team’s larger than life lineman. In an odd series of events, Shanahan was able to make Haynesworth fail the Redskins conditioning test.
For the test, Haynesworth had to run a pair of 300 yard sprints. But after Haynesworth completed the two sprints, Shanahan wasn’t happy. Instead, the coach said that Haynesworth took too much time between sprints and told him to do a third sprint. On the third try, Haynesworth failed.
This ongoing feud has a number of levels. Haynesworth doesn’t like Shanahan’s new defensive scheme. On the other hand, Shanahan doesn’t like the distractions or Haynesworth’s bloated contract.
In the next few days, Haynesworth will be given another shot to past the team’s conditioning test. But even if he passes, that won’t stop the feud. It won’t end until Haynesworth is playing for another NFL team.
