Half Smokes Hypothetical: The Redskins-Colts Result With Albert Haynesworth

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).

In a surprising move to some, Mike Shanahan decided to deactivate Albert Haynesworth prior to the Redskins' game against the Colts last night, even though Haynesworth said he was ready to play. Shanahan said it was because Haynesworth had come in after the game plan was implemented, but as Haynesworth noted last night, he knows the Colts well from his time as a member of the Tennessee Titans

Regardless, Haynesworth did not play, and the Redskins fell by a field goal. Here's today's hypothetical.
