Haynesworth said “Hell yeah” when he became a Patriot

Albert Haynewsorth AP

Albert Haynesworth desperately wanted to leave the Washington Redskins. So when he found out he was going to the Patriots, what was his reaction?

“Hell yeah.”

Haynesworth had his first chat with the New England media today, and he said it’s important to him to change the way he’s perceived.

“Restoring my name,” Haynesworth said, via Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald. “Albert Haynesworth the Patriot.”

So Haynesworth is happy to be in New England, where he said his role in the Patriots’ defense will be, “Kill the quarterback.”

    You sure he didn’t say

    “Hell…cough cough, wheezing, catch air..yeah”

  2. xstaticonradio says: Aug 2, 2011 4:42 PM

    I wonder who’s fatter, Albert or Rex Ryan

  3. bronconation7 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:43 PM

    The ultimate turd!

  4. redguy12588 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:44 PM

    Sounds like Albert played danny boy for the cash in his wallet.

  5. xli2006 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:44 PM

    If $100,000,000 isn’t enough to say “Hell Yeah” and actually play or care about his job, not sure I believe anything he is claimed to have said.

  6. melonvoxveritas says: Aug 2, 2011 4:44 PM

    Each ounce of fat on him is technically worth over 10,000.

  7. bturner032002 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:44 PM

    and this just in….

    The washing redskins website is now selling a surplus of oxygen tanks at 75% discount!

  8. fonetiklee says: Aug 2, 2011 4:45 PM

    Then Haynesworth stomped on Rapoport’s face for questioning his play in Washington.

  9. 9ersfaithful says: Aug 2, 2011 4:46 PM

    I think he’ll fit in here, as much as I hate to say it. Huge disappointment in Washington, but he has something to play for (“restoring his name”) now at least. The Patriots are also not trying to make him change the way he plays.

  10. tformation says: Aug 2, 2011 4:47 PM

    Watch him actually KILL a quarterback this year now…

  11. tylerncom says: Aug 2, 2011 4:47 PM

    As an anti-Patriots guy living in New England, that is not what I wanted to hear. If, that is, IF, he decides to light a fire under his own behind coupled with Belicheck up it all the time, this could be interesting. A Vince Wilfork and a motivated Haynesworth could be very destructive. Almost as destructive as MY LIONS!

  12. lumas101 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:48 PM

    And if he can’t kill the quarterback he can just stomp his head into the ground.

  13. smootysmoot says: Aug 2, 2011 4:48 PM

    I said “Hell Yeah” when his fat ass was traded.

  14. dansnyder says: Aug 2, 2011 4:48 PM

    While this man is capable of playing big I want to remind everyone of the things he said he would be and how he acted when he first came to Washington.

    He comes off sounding genuine at times be he did the exact same thing in DC. All I’m saying is don’t bank on him to act on his words. He could very well play great this season and me and pretty much any skins fan wouldn’t care because he actually played pretty good his first season with us too. It’s one thing to be motivated by change or chips on your shoulder or any type of outside influence but it’s another thing to keep a high level of play when things become stagnant.

    Hopefully patriot fans get at least one good year out of him. He is a beast when motivated so as a fan of football in general I will still enjoy seeing the things a player like him can do. All in all though I am still glad we flushed the turd.

  15. wethog66 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:48 PM

    Fat Al would need to totally re-write every NFL record for a D-lineman for the next 5 years to restore his football name. His personal name, he won’t live long enough to do that. Once a turd, always a turd.

  16. ytsejamer1 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:49 PM

    He already got Brady back in the 2009 preseason. He better lay off him in practice!

    Past that…happy to hear that he’s focused and motivated. Look forward to watching opposing quarterbacks not have a month of sundays back there.

  17. JackLeone says: Aug 2, 2011 4:51 PM

    Yeah, happy because he’ll have a better chance of getting a ring in New England, than he would’ve in Washington.

  18. mdnittlion says: Aug 2, 2011 4:52 PM

    As Mike Brown would say Albert was “rewarded” for his time in DC and sent to the Patriots.

  19. therealsmiley says: Aug 2, 2011 4:53 PM

    Riiiiight!! Hail!

  20. bturner032002 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:56 PM

    Hey! Hey! Hey! I’m a fat Patriot!

  21. deddmunnie says: Aug 2, 2011 4:57 PM

    LET ME TRANSLATE THIS FOR YOU ALL…

    “If I play like my god given talent will allow me, I will make more money on my NEXT contract, so yeah I will be getting up off the turf this year…So that I can dupe someone else into paying me more moolah down the road”

  22. nyjalleffingday says: Aug 2, 2011 4:57 PM

    @xstaticonradio

    Haynesworth: 335
    Ryan: Somewhere in the 310 area, idk for sure.

    Does this mean we won’t be able to see a Patriots post without fat jokes anymore, like Jets ones?

  23. ryanmallettsbluntwrap says: Aug 2, 2011 4:58 PM

    Haters can keep on hatin , but in a couple month you will be swallowing your own words , Shannahan is too into himself and has driven the Redskins org into the ground , hard to respect the guy . Patriots look to be switching to a 4-3 and having Vince and Haynesworth ( fat albert ) , that doesn’t actually look fat at all , will be a pretty tough line to get through , both require a double team . He has too much talent and knows he is on his first great team . Chances are is he is a savage.

  24. crackills says: Aug 2, 2011 5:00 PM

    I, Albert Hainsworthless, do so solemnly swear to not step on heads, not to punch people in the face during my road rage, not to sexually harass waitresses and not to be a lazy piece of crap.
    …..
    “Ha! fooled you!.. had my fingers crossed the whole time .. suckers.”

  25. gpete1962 says: Aug 2, 2011 5:00 PM

    I don’t like the Pats but you can’t argue against the possible upside of this acquisition…..

  26. philtvc65 says: Aug 2, 2011 5:01 PM

    Restoring his name, are you kidding me, in DC it was to become “the best DT that ever played”, don’t buy the BS like we did. Just soundbites, and lock up your waitresses lol !!

  27. smellmyface says: Aug 2, 2011 5:04 PM

    Sorry fat pos the Redskins should sue him for the money he stole.

    @ytsejamer1
    Did you not see the Philly game where the tub of crap was planking on the field? Good luck thinking he will play 2 plays in a row.

  28. usmutts says: Aug 2, 2011 5:04 PM

    Belichick will get a great year out of Fat Albert and Ocho-clown-o, too, but next off-season they’ll both revert to form and just before camp BB will dump them.

  29. patsandsox says: Aug 2, 2011 5:06 PM

    Well I am hopefull he will be motivated and play to his potential. I think Coach Shanahan got caught up in trying to humiliate him and obviously that didnt work.

    Bill is taking a different approach, will it work? Who really knows. I am hoping so because he does have the talent. With him and Vince Wilfork thats a lot of beef in the center of the Patriots D line.

    If he turns into the jerk he was in DC he gets cut and it only cost a 5th rounder. Either way its on Danny Snyders wallet.

  30. joeflaccosunibrow says: Aug 2, 2011 5:11 PM

    Didn’t he come to Washington to “Clear his name” after trying to stomp out the fire on the side of that dude’s helmet?

  31. kernelreefer says: Aug 2, 2011 5:11 PM

    What did Haynesworth say when he realized he should have wanted to have been traded to the Eagles?

  32. friendlylittletrees says: Aug 2, 2011 5:12 PM

    He is the fat guy I want with me during a zombie apocalypse…..

    As slow bait for the Z’s to go after as I make my escape.

  33. pdxpanther says: Aug 2, 2011 5:16 PM

    Are we sure he didn’t say hell yeah because his order number was called while he was on the phone?

  34. punkymagee says: Aug 2, 2011 5:16 PM

    Haynesworth said “Hell yeah” when he became a Patriot.

    He then said, “Pass the Cheetos, biotches!”

  35. mataug says: Aug 2, 2011 5:16 PM

    Some team’s gonna lose a lot of money after Albert does really well in what essentially is a contract year for him.

  36. deddmunnie says: Aug 2, 2011 5:21 PM

    patsandsox you’re wrong. They asked him to come in before his 21million dollar bonus was due and said would you like to be traded or released before we pay you this bonus? if you take it you’re gonna have to work for it… and THEN he turded out. Should be punishable by law what he did to the skins. He was so out of shape he couldn’t play 2 plays in a row…

    watch a couple of games and you’ll see what he did there. He was out of shape and humiliated himself, even after THEY GAVE HIM A PASS on the “conditioning test” he didnt get himself in shape. He’s a piece of garbage, fact.

  37. skinsrock says: Aug 2, 2011 5:25 PM

    And then…. He ate a cheeseburger.

  38. trickbunny says: Aug 2, 2011 5:26 PM

    “Hell yeah! Now I can be out of shape, give a half-assed effort at best, and STILL get a Super Bowl ring!”

  39. bleedblue18 says: Aug 2, 2011 5:27 PM

    Can’t wait till when Albert mouths off in the media this season which he always does, its going to be epic.

    Belicheats hates that, remember Adaluis Thomas and Randy Moss. Belicheat loves to keep everything in house and players like Moss, Haynesworth, TO, Ochostinko speak their mind.

    Its only a matter of time before Albert has a bad game, gets into it with a coach or doesn’t like his playing time, ect ect… The media will be there to catch every word.

  40. weneedlinemen42 says: Aug 2, 2011 5:31 PM

    He gave a positive impression at his first press conference when arrived in Washington. He wanted to clear his name then as well, of the accusation that he only played hard when his contract was on the line. Now that he’d been paid he was intent on creating a legacy as an outstanding defensive player who meritted a $100M. Pity that attitude never made an appearance on the field.

    He certainly talks a good game. Maybe he’ll live up to it this time. Especially as he’ll be playing for a new contract and another fat signing bonus.

  41. tdk24 says: Aug 2, 2011 5:36 PM

    Moss probably said the same thing. Just cause they won in the past, doesn’t mean they will win in the now or the future. They get these big name players and they just sluff off, riding the coat tails of a team from the early 2000’s. Expecting to win a championship, but end the season empty handed because they are slackers.

  42. granadafan says: Aug 2, 2011 5:37 PM

    Give the complete story. He said, “Hell yeah”, when he saw the boxes of doughnuts at the press conference. When the reporters asked about the Patriots, he said, with his mouth stuffed with jelly doughnuts, he said, “Patriots? Oh. Yeah”.

  43. stixzidinia says: Aug 2, 2011 5:42 PM

    Somebody needs to tell Haynesworth that “killing the QB” is no longer allowed in the NFL…….unless that QB is black (or named Ben).

    It must be tough for some of you to understand. Albert is a low risk high reward move. If he becomes Bad Albert, he will be ran out of Foxboro quicker than Moss was. What did the Pats lose? A 5th rounder. If, however, the Pats get the Good Albert, he will be a team player, a huge improvement to the defensive line, and with Wilfork will bring tremendous pressure up the middle. The Good Albert will be devastating.

    I would take a flier on a 5th rounder for this kind of impactful potential.

    I think we get the Good Albert, at least this year.
    And in the world of the NFL, things always change from year to year.

    Great move from the best coach hands down in the NFL. He doesn’t have to ask other teams for help. He doesn’t suck toes and post it on the internet. Hate all you want my friends.

  46. ihavea2inchpenis says: Aug 2, 2011 6:16 PM

    Fatsworth can probobly kill an all u can eat buffet and that’s a fact. Wouldn’t want to b near him wen he’s eating might get my fingers bit

  47. feldman9000 says: Aug 2, 2011 6:17 PM

    I think everyone seems to forget when this mass of the ass broke that Dallas OL arm for no reason.

  48. bobhk says: Aug 2, 2011 6:19 PM

    If he had a tough time dealing with Shanahan wait till he has to deal with Belicrap. :)

  49. TheWizard says: Aug 2, 2011 6:23 PM

    Not being a fan of guys like this, I would say Bill knows something about Albert that we don’t.

    I hope.

  50. mr4thand1 says: Aug 2, 2011 6:48 PM

    “Kill my landlord. C-I-L-L my LANDLORD.”

  51. therealsmiley says: Aug 2, 2011 6:55 PM

    No one is saying this isn’t a low risk – high reward situation for the Pats. It’s a no brainer…..you give up a 5th rounder for a guy that potentially one of the best defensive lineman in football. You know the caveat. You might get one good year out of him….my money is on the fact he’s been lazy so long….he’ll be cut. But you never know. Hail!!

  52. duncanthecat says: Aug 2, 2011 6:59 PM

  54. backindasaddle says: Aug 2, 2011 7:47 PM

    He’s going to try to redeem himself this year and he knows if he turns into an idiot this year it will mean the end of the road and his permanently etched legacy will be that of a complete and total POS. He knows this and he knows he doesn’t want that legacy. It’s a redemptive time/season for him right now. Because of this, I think he’ll be throwing offensive guards around like rag dolls and I’m predicting some seriously crushed QBs as well (probably followed by 15 yard penalties and fines…LOL). But it will be great fun to watch the “Redemption Beast” on his mission of atonement. Release the Beast!!! LOL. I absolutely LOVE the orchestrated violence of football. It makes me feel in a way like the ancient Romans cheering down at the Gladiators in the Coliseum as the spectacle of blood and violence unfurls. Let the games begin!

    __________________________________
    A fair take from a Wash fan, thank you. I wasn’t aware that he talked all nice when he went to your team. I am not a fan of this move so I will be watching if his words match his play extra carefully.

    Rappaport mentioned something weird: that Haynesworth is actually a Pats fan from a ways back. He went to one of their playoff games courtesy of Rodney Harrison. I know he talked nice about the Pats when they played in the preseason a couple years back too. Might not mean anything but it’s interesting.

    ————————————

    Indeed I did see that. I’ll tell you what – if he pulls that stuff here in New England, BB will cut ties…without remorse. There have been quite a few players that exited the NFL last under his watch. I think front offices around the league pay some attention to that. Adalius Thomas is one that comes to mind.

  57. pfank11 says: Aug 2, 2011 9:41 PM

    I don’t doubt all the anti Haynesworth comments are true. To this point Albert has been a bad guy EVERYWHERE he’s been.

    HOWEVER he knows he’s on a short leash. If he doesn’t measure up over the next 5 weeks, he’ll be gone with no cap cost for the Pats. On the other hand, this is the perfect time for the Pats to the the maximum out of Haynesworth….for at least this season.

    It’s likely that he’ll be the impact player that the Pats hopes he will be. However I don’t want them to extend him past this season. THAT would be TOO risky.

  58. richm2256 says: Aug 2, 2011 10:37 PM

    Fat???? Out of shape???

    Did any of you people LOOK at the photo in the piece, showing him in a Patriot’s jersey?

    Dude looks almost svelte!

    He he is REALLY looking like that photo, could be a scary year from Haynesworth.

  59. beefy617 says: Aug 2, 2011 11:24 PM

    Damn there’s a lot of hater haha watch out for pats this year lol

  60. gimmeabruschi says: Aug 3, 2011 1:30 AM

    BB has the answer nobody else thought of.

    He’ll just impose an image of a huge Dunkin Doughnut on the QB from a sideline projector and watch Big Al bulldoze his way to the goodies.

  61. MichaelEdits says: Aug 3, 2011 5:31 AM

    If Haynesworth can take Manning out of the game, Manning who just lost his left tackle, he’ll shut up naysayers like me. But I still wouldn’t let the guy near my daughter if I had one.

  62. routerunner says: Aug 3, 2011 1:51 PM

    Definitely the most interesting signing of the Belichick era.

  63. redskinfansince82 says: Aug 7, 2011 1:27 PM

    If he considers “killing the QB” as sitting with his face masked planted in the ground for 15 seconds during the Eagles Monday night game then pray for all opposing QB’s. Warren Sapp said it best. “If you got 20 total sacks in last 8 years that’s 2.5 sacks a year. How can you say your dominate? Thank you Belichek…..THankYou…..we owe you a debt of gratitude!
