Haynesworth: I want them to see what I can do
Albert Haynesworth says he is not satisfied with how he has played thus far for the New England Patriots.
Haynesworth, who was acquired from Washington after a stormy two-year tenure there, told the Boston Herald that he wants to increase his production, which so far includes two tackles and one QB hit in three games. Haynesworth was out for two games with a back injury.
“I wouldn’t say I’m satisfied,” Haynesworth said. “If I ain’t making every tackle, every sack, every pass defense, I’m not satisfied. So, I’m OK with it, but I want to definitely increase and get a lot better and want them to see what I can do.”
Redskins fans wanted to see what he could do, too, but after signing a $100 million contract there after leaving Tennessee, Haynesworth did not live up to the billing and last year wound up in Mike Shanahan's doghouse over his reluctance to play in a 3-4 system.
Now, Haynesworth is trying to learn a new system in New England, which has struggled on defense through the early part of the season, and trying to bring his game back somewhere close to the level it was when he was an All-Pro defensive tackle with the Titans. When will Haynesworth be back at the top of his game?
"Only God knows that question," Haynesworth said.
