Half Smokes Hypothetical: Albert Haynesworth's Ideal Playing Weight

Half Smokes Hypothetical is a daily discussion where we throw out a D.C. sports-related question based on the news of the day. It's a hypothetical discussion, which is what makes it fun (we hope).

Obviously, the news that Albert Haynesworth has lost 30 pounds is very good news for Redskins fans concerned that he was just sitting around and getting out of shape. However, it also raises another problem: Haynesworth might be shedding so much weight that he's not well-suited to playing nose tackle in Mike Shanahan's defensive system. (Of course, Haynesworth probably doesn't see that as a problem, but I digress).

Therefore, I wanted to pose this question as a hypothetical today.

What is the ideal playing weight for Albert Haynesworth if he is to play nose tackle this season?
