Left Side Was New To Haynesworth

November 16th, 2011

Joe knows big No. 95 is a character new to Bucs fans. And you can catch postgame audio from Albert Haynesworth here to get to know him better.

Many thought Haynesworth was a “butthole” when he got to Tampa, so Brian Price stated Sunday. You can add Joe to that group. But having heard him speak several times, Joe thinks Haynesworth sounds like a decent guy. Haynesworth did an excellent pregame sit-down with Justin Pawlowski, of the Buccaneers Radio Network, in which Haynes explained, “I love to dominiate.” Hopefully the Bucs will make that audio available to fans.

In the postgame audio linked above, Haynesworth explained that he picked up his role in the Bucs’ system very quickly but switching sides on the line with his fellow defensive tackle was new for him.

“I never really played left,” Haynesworth said. “That’s a new thing that I gotta get used to and better at, for sure.”

This surprised Joe a bit. Joe’s hardly versed in ever intricacy of the Bucs’ defensive line schemes, but it seems odd that they would play Haynesworth where he’s not comfortable given he only got on the Bucs’ practice field on Thursday.

Something to keep an eye on in Green Bay.

    I remember Justin saying how BIG Albert is. I missed that pre game sit down Justin did, but I heard Justin say it on WDAE.

    He’s a MONSTER load of a man. I saw him once absolutely destroy a hotel breakfast buffet.

    How do you find it odd that the Bucs would play him on the left side of the Dline? You do know that if he were on the right side, he’d be playing on the nose, right? Generally speaking, the Bucs play an “under defense”, what you’re asking them to do is to play an “over defense” because Haynesworth hasn’t played much on the left? You realize that this is not a standard 2-gap 4-3 defense, right?

    You weren’t kidding when you said you weren’t “versed in ever intricacy of the game.” Joe, you’d learn soooo much more if you watched the games only half drunk… of course being completely drunk is pretty much the only way to get through an entire game.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ “being completely drunk is pretty much the only way to get through an entire game”

    Really sounds like he is taking this team serious. But what worries me is the fact that other guys on the d are taking plays off. If al sees that behavior from other guys he might start doing the same thing, and ruin his turn around.
    Didnt think i’d be saying that in that paticular order.
