Haynesworth changes tune about 3-4 NT role

Could the 3-4 nose tackle position actually be growing on Albert Haynesworth? The mega-millionaire sounded a lot less disgruntled (or is it “a lot more gruntled”?) after his preseason debut against the Bills Saturday night. A. Haynesworth

Haynesworth, who worked as the second-string nose tackle, talked about the scheme with reporters after the game. "It's different, but I like it,” he said “It's something I've got to get used to, but other than that, it's going to be a good defense.”

It’s possible – though not likely – that the Redskins could use Haynesworth at the defensive end position in 2010. It could depend on how Ma’ake Kemoeatu performs. Kemoeatu is coming of a serious Achilles injury but earned the starting nod Saturday night.

Also worth noting is that, regardless of whether he plays nose tackle or end, Haynesworth will be used as a bull-rusher on a four-man line in obvious passing situations.

Haynesworth changes tune about 3-4 NT role

I'm not sold on Haynesworth wanting the position yet. If he wants to start, he needs more fervor in his game. Granted, Shanahan doesn't want to trade for him, and neither do I (although like all of you, I hate his babyish behavior). He attracts so much attention that it gives the other defensive linemen or linebackers room to get to the QB. Like him or not, he is a versatile defensive lineman.

On another note, I really do hope he starts to warm up to Shanahan too. Can't really put your heart into it if you don't believe in your head coach...
