    Somehow I think if this had been a negative story, then it would have been a whole commentary by itself. However, in light of all the many stories that have been posted about how the Skins have used Haynesworth, this tidbit is significant. He played 30 snaps in the game, his most by far, and he’s at least attempting to get with the program now and getting praise for it. This is something almost no commentators or posters would have predicted. Who knows if it’ll keep up but an interesting detail in light of all the discussion we’ve had on this very point.
