Albert Haynesworth, The Perfectionst?

You know what's fun? When Albert Haynesworth says all the right things, then doesn't practice what he preaches. Washington Redskins fans know this well enough, so we aren't surprised when we read Haynesworth saying things like this to the New England press. Via Ian R. Rappaport of the Boston Herald.

You can even ask my mom," Haynesworth said. "I’ve had games when I was with the Titans, I had three sacks, a couple tackles for loss, things like that, she was like, ‘Oh, how’d you play, you played great.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I played OK.’ I wanna be the best at what I do at all times. I never want to slack. If I make a tackle for a one-yard gain, I think it should’ve been for a one-yard loss. If I make a sack, I think I should’ve had a sack, a strip and a fumble."

Wonder if he was satisfied with the nap he took on that play in last year's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
