    i do this test for hockey, same exact thing but we have sixty seconds to complete it the run. not impossible by any means for a normal built person but for a guy his size? doing it in 70 seconds with having to bend down and everything would be exhausting.

    he lost a lot of weight this offseason and seems to be in better shape than he was last year. granted, i think some of that is because he didnt want to be stuck at nose tackle and thought losing the weight would prove he was too light to do it, but his weight is down so he should be fine. as was said before, shanahan is just teaching the guy a lesson and pouring the bad publicity on.

      I saw some other recent pictures like these earlier. I don't remember AH ever looking that small.

      EDIT: Small is a bad word. He actually looks like he's carrying his weight well and is more muscular looking that I've ever seen him. His gut looks scaled back, and there's definition in his shoulders. Failing his conditioning aside, he passes the eye ball test for me.

        Mike Golic basically completes the test while going over a couple seconds, he is 47 years old.

        I think this might be the first training camp holdout where the player is actually in camp.

        ...and it's a joke that people expect him to try on consecutive days. This test will swell your knees/ankles and leave hamstrings sore for days. You're much less likely to pass it the day after your first attempt.

        .
        Wait, what test is this? Are you sure this is the same one? He has a $100 million contract, no excuses for failing this.

          They should have a test for things like pockets collapsed, sacks, forced fumbles, double-teams drawn, holding calls drawn, etc...

          Oh, wait, they do? Haynesworth killed that test? Oh, well, keep him off the field because he can't do a conditioning test for a distance he'll never run in a game. Makes sense. How many Redskins players had to do this test?

          Hey, by all means, keep him off the field. It just means it's less for the Eagles to worry about.

            Haynesworth is the only one who had to do the test. Guys who didn't show up to at least 50% of mandatory offseason workouts had to do the test. Fat Albert is the only guy who didn't show up to at least 50%, in fact he showed up to less than 1%.

              Haynesworth is just dogging it because he got paid and doesn't give a s*** now. I could do that test with a 100 lb sack (would put me at 300) on my back in less time and I'm not much younger than Haynesworth, never was a pro athlete, and am probably in the worst shape of my life.

              He needs to show effort because he isn't going to do sh*t on the field if he doesn't. It'd be better to get him to quit and sue him to the core for it.
              **** her in da *****!

                That link is a joke. Michael David Smith, who weighs less than half of what Haynesworth does (200 lbs less than Albert's listed weight actually) and has to bend down 8 inches less, barely passed the test. They also say Mike Golic is a similar weight as Haynesworth. I don't know Golic's current weight, but he can't be much more than 250 lbs. Haynesworth probably has 70-100 lbs on him.

                  How is it a joke? You saw him run it in the video... what are you trying to say?

                    I saw a 250-260 lb man run his two shuttles in 71 and 76 seconds. The same test that 330-350 lb Albert Haynesworth must complete in 70 seconds or less. The link claimed that Golic and Haynesworth were a "similar" weight.

                      Haynesworth is a 100 million dollar professional athlete who has supposedly been training all off season and is in the "best shape of his life"

                      Golic is a fat 50 year old talk show host......

                        It's 70 seconds for the first and 73 for the second.

                        When they showed it on NFL Live they listed Golic as 270. And he's a 47 year old TV analyst with no conditioning or training for it. Haynseworth is a 29 year old NFL player who has been (or at least should have been) training and conditioning for the past 7 months.

                        I don't care how big he is, as an NFL player he should be able to pass this test.

                          That is not the same test. Golic didn't have to touch the ground.

                          Also: He left early on both attempts. He didn't even go far enough on every leg of the relay. He cut some short. He also went over on time by more than they say he did. As the article below the video states, their times were inaccurate.

                          It's a joke that they didn't have him touch the ground. That's the worst part of it.

                          ...and Golic is nowhere near Albert's weight. I hear his commercials on EPSN radio all the time saying he has a 38 inch waist or whatever. That's about a foot less than Albert has to be.

                            Whatever. Hes fat and 47 years old and he hasnt been doing any training and he came way closer to passing then haynesworth, who is a professional athlete who was supposed to be training all summer.

                              Golic was bragging about being under 240 a lot of times, lol.

                                Golic doing that test was nothing more than a subtle advertisement for P90X.
