Haynesworth makes debut with Skins
Question of the Day
The first step for Haynesworth has been discussing his role in the Redskins’ 4-3 scheme.
“We’re doing a little bit of what we did in Tennessee to get me feeling normal and how I played there,” he said. “We’ve incorporated some stuff, but we still have a whole lot of stuff they ran last year.”
Blache said the scheme will change “a little bit” but wouldn’t elaborate, and he became grumpy when asked if the Redskins’ defensive line should be improved this year.
“I think we have a talented group, but talent alone is nothing,” he said. “The prisons are full of talent. The rehab centers are full of talent. If you don’t have passion, if you don’t have discipline, if you’re not selfless, talent is a curse, not a blessing. We have some talent, but will we make it what it’s supposed to be? I don’t know. We have to see.”
Haynesworth’s next hearing in a case in which he is charged with two traffic misdemeanors was delayed this week until June 8. Haynesworth, who pleaded not guilty in March, is charged in an accident in which another driver was seriously injured.
“I’m not really worried about it,” he said. “I’m here to get better on the field and let my lawyer and agent take care of that good old stuff.”
Zorn said Haynesworth’s value won’t be obvious on every snap because of his ability to draw double teams and open lanes for other players.
“We looked at a lot of video, and for our system he’s going to do the same things for us as he did for them,” Zorn said. “He’s going to get into the backfield, and he’s going to push on double teams. When he creates that much of a problem, you have to be on him with a couple of guys and that hopefully frees up other guys to make plays.
“There are going to be times when people will say, ‘Where’s Albert? Why isn’t he doing this?’ But he’s doing what we’re asking him to do.”
