    Not saying this would EVER happen, but...

    ...seems like Belichick and Shanahan have a good rapport, since Shanny was allowed to come to Pats training camp and speak to BB's troops.

    Soooooooo...if Shanny was willing to part with the headache that is Albert Haynesworth for the 4th rounder picked up in the Maroney trade, do you take the deal??? Or do you consider Haynesworth too much of a cancer/crybaby.

    Even for a 4th?

    Interesting.

    That would essentially be trading one guy who couldn't play for another guy who doesn't even want to play.

    Haynesworth is useless.

    Just say NO to players who don't want to play.

    I don't see this as being a possibility, even a remote one.  You have to look at the person and not the talent here.  He is not Patriot stuff in more ways than one.  If Shanahan can't get this clown motovated what makes you think that Belichick can?  What makes you think he wants to try?  It's not just about playing the NT position either.  The guy is unbalanced.  An amazing talent but let him be someone elses headache.  If he wasn't such a tease he'd be out of football.

    Okay, I'll buy that line of reasoning. But if before training camp had started, the press had circulated rumors of a Maroney for Haynesworth trade, I bet most of the posters in this forum would have been all for it. It was largely in the subsequent Shanahan-Haynesworth standoff that Albert completely destroyed his rep.

    Haynesworth would be the ideal defensive end in a 3-4 system. I'd make that trade in a second.

    Washington wants more than that i'd assume

    Would you guys trade Brace and a 4th for him?

    Brace can move right into the 3-4 NT, spot, likely to be some growing pains of course in the new organization for a 22-23 year old, but would he be much worse than the guy who is just going thru the motions, unhappy and being drawn circles around every other play by the tv commentators?

    I think Brace was more Wilfork security anyhow, in case he didn't sign for the fair deal he did.

    Would Haynsworth be a force on the edge at the 3-4? A 10+ sack guy here who'd let Wright (and a little of Pryor) shift back to being more backup DT's in the 4-3 we occasionally play?

    Then next year when the younger Warren comes back strong and healthy the older one is a FA and expendable and we have a solid 3-4 under contract for awhile. Can use our 4 picks in the 1st two rounds on other needs.

    Forget about it....

    Some folks already said it here in some of these posts...the guy is a pre-maddonna....who doesn't want to practice and has a BAD attitude!  He aint' coming here.  I think BB and co. already got rid of the problem ones from last yr and they won't bring one in at this point. 

    IF he ends UP anywhere - it would be the Jets who just lost Jenkins for yr (or Tennessee which he seems to be on their radar to bring him back there)

    Not trying to pick on you NOISE, but it is PRIMA DONNA.  Means first/primary girl.  From the opera, female lead, who sometimes had a high sense of self importance.  Pre Madonna would be Pat Benatar.

    Mike Wright pressured Carson Palmer well on sunday, ROn Brace is a work in progress, but when he blooms he'll be a good DE. 


    I wouldn't trade Tom Brady's old cleets for Haynesworth.

    What other needs? 

    ROn Brace can play DE and by mid-season he'll be the starting RE. 

    That leaves RB, OLB, OT, OG. 

    QB positon is good. 
    WRs are good. (I hope we sign Moss, mixed with Welker, Tate, Price and Edelman) 
    TEs are good.(Gronk and Aaron)
    DL, for the most part, is good. (Brace, Wilfork, Warren.)
    MLB is good. (Mayo, Spikes, Guyton)
    We have a LOLB in Cunningham
    CBs are good with Bodden returning. (Bodden, Butler, McCourty Island)
    Safeties are good. (Chung and Meriweather)

    Not a lot of needs on the roster.

    Re: Not saying this would EVER happen, but...

    Got to disagree with you 49.  Brace may turn out to be good but Let's not count our chickens yet, he's not good now, (he's OK, not a starter) and in between the time he becomes good (which may never happen) and next years draft the Pats have a need for 2 DE's. 

    The Pats have a history of keeping a D-line with low first round talent (Seymour, Wilfork, Ty Warren, Ted Washington), something Brace and Wright are not.  Gerard Warren is playing is his 10th NFL season he is 32, and is not the future, he may only have a couple years left.  While Ty Warren is relatively young (turns 30 in FEB) he has missed 8 games in the last 2 years and is out all this year.  Having your two best starting DE's over 30 (and one making a habit of injury lately) and a question mark in Brace does not make me feel the DE position is set.  I would not be surprised if this years starting DE's (Warren, Wright) are not next years DE's.

    On Haynesworth, I don't usually have any interest in these trouble maker types but I will admit that a Line that includes any combination of Wilfork and Haynesworth would likely be the best line in football and would wreak havoc on the NFL for years (If Haynesworth could not be a dirtbag and work hard). 

    I don't think BB would dismiss this idea as easily as some others but the reason I doubt it happens is because the Redskins just won, and when you win everybody is happy.  Probably even Haynesworth and Shanahan are happy...this week.  Look at the Mcdaniels Marshall love/hate relationship that had them loving each other one week and wanting to fight each other the next when they lost.

    Re: Not saying this would EVER happen, but...

    haynesworth is too risky: too much money + picks, and we don't even know if he wants to play.

    now, there's a rumour that the jets might go after him, what do you think of that possibility?
