    Oh Albert, oh Albert...

    Pleeeeease bring it this year...could be the start of something special.

    Ask yourself, when was the last time, during training camp, you wondered whether the Pats offense could match up with the D?

    A good feeling...

    I said it before and I'll say it again.. I am excited to see how our D plays against big time offenses... I'm not worried like I was the last 5 years.

    More excited about the D than the O this time around.

    Re: Oh Albert, oh Albert...

    Reiss says its summer knee management. He had some shot in his knee and their taking it slow.

    Per Reiss...

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- There have been a lot of questions from followers on Twitter about defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth and missing practice. Haynesworth hasn't been on the field for the last three sessions, and given his reputation, the absence has garnered headlines. That's fair.

    This somewhat reminds me of 2007 training camp with Randy Moss.

    Moss lit things up early in camp before slightly tweaking his hamstring. The Patriots played in safe, shutting him down until the regular season. There were questions throughout the preseason if Moss would be ready, then in the season opener against the Jets, they were answered with authority when he raced through triple coverage on a long-bomb 51-yard strike.

    Haynesworth, like Moss, had a strong start to camp in 2011.

    On his first play, he exploded past a blocker in a half-line running drill, blowing up the play in a glimpse of the type of disruption he could create when motivated. There were a few other plays like that before his workload was reduced.

    Why was the workload reduced?

    I think Tom Curran of Comcast SportsNet was on to something when he reported on Haynesworth's "www.csnne.com/08/06/11/Haynesworths-history-of-summer-knee-main/landing_patriots.html?blockID=546472&feedID=4023" target="_blank">history of summer knee maintenance" over the weekend, and how that maintenance has probably extended into training camp because of the lockout.

    As reported by the Washington Post in 2009, Haynesworth has received an offseason injection of Synvisc, which is similar to natural knee fluid, since his final two years in Tennessee (2007-2008).

    Haynesworth was in good enough shape to pass his physical when the Patriots acquired him in a trade, which is important context here. Then in practice, there wasn't anything noticeable that happened from an injury perspective, although Haynesworth certainly seemed to be trying to get his legs under him.

    Much like Moss in 2007, my sense is that Haynesworth's absence isn't anything close to a sound-the-alarms situation for Bill Belichick. I think Belichick views it more in the all-important "managing players' health" category following the lockout.

    I don't expect to see Haynesworth Thursday night against the Jaguars in the preseason opener, but at this point, I'd be surprised if he's not ready for the season opener Sept. 12 in Miami.

    nice share Phil, I could certainly see them shutting fat albert down for a bit. His talent level will ensure him a spot on the roster. I don't think we need to worry about Albert right now, I am more interested in how the rest of our D-Line will shape out.

    LOL, what were you guys expecting? Do you honestly think Bill Belichik was going to change this manchild with the potential for raging violence against women, teammates, and unknowing motorists?

    No one seems to be mentioning he has a court date/trial due to start on August 23rd.  I wonder if he is off with lawyers trying to get that thing settled and that is why he is not at practice.

    Yeah, that's the ticket, not that he is a lazy, overpaid, p/o/s who is going to embarrass Pats fans thoroughly.

    LOL i didnt say he wasnt those things either.  I am no fan of Haynesworth but my point was if they were just "resting " him you would expect to at least see him on the field watching like the other players on the PUP list.  He is no where to be found.  Makes me thing he is off taking care of other buiness.

    Very wishful thinking here.  However, I'm sure you don't even buy the BS you are selling.

    It's called he's a big guy and out of shape and they are going to bring him along slowly.  Hate it all you want, but he will be in there shoving people back into their quarterbacks when it is time.  And Wilfork?  That man-beast, freed from 2 gapping, will be all four horsemen of the apocalypse by himself.  Go play with your iggies friends, you guys pretend every year you will do it all.  Funny, the best thing that ever happened to you was Terrel Owens.  That is sad.
