Charles Mann Piles On Haynesworth For Not Wanting To Pile On

This summer, there have been two things that everyone in Washington can universally agree upon:

↵
    ↵
  1. Stephen Strasburg is awesome.
  2. ↵
  3. Albert Haynesworth really shouldn't be complaining about playing in a 3-4.
  4. ↵

Even former athletes with ties to the area think Haynesworth is being a little ridiculous. Here's what he had to say to ESPN 980 about Haynesworth not wanting to play in a 3-4 scheme, as transcribed by Dan Steinberg:

I mean, just do the work. He looks more like a nose tackle, and a 3-4's gonna be great for him. You know why a 3-4 would be great? Because all he'll have to do is what he did last year, and that's just fall on the ground, pile it up a little bit and the linebackers roll past you and make the plays, He doesn't even have to make a play in the 3-4.

Not even have to make a play? That sounds like a pretty sweet gig to me. Maybe not as sweet as getting paid $100 million to not show up to workouts and only play half the time, but it's not half bad either.
