ALBERT HAYNESWORTH - so the big man is on the field. I had seriously begun to think that the entire convoluted, fitness-test-"injury"-MRI-are-you-serious-melodrama wasn't a charade presented for public consumption. Wan't sure who was orchestrating it, or if it was just Type A personality bullheadedness and money politics from all sides. But I was pretty close to deciding the man would never take the practice field wearing burgundy and gold again.

interesting series of comments on that link there OM.

anywho.....some of us knew the situation had been over dramatized. but..in the I didn't see it coming department....Shanahan handled the whole thing pretty adroitly. while the fans were running amuck...he never hit the airwaves and made a public spectacle of the thing (i.e., they never trieed to provoke the guy which some, ncluding myself, thought was part of the strategy). yes Houston..we have a coach!!!
