Jason Brown reveals strategy on Haynesworth
St. Louis Rams’ center Jason Brown gave some insight into how his team plans to handle the Washington Redskins’ Albert Haynesworth in week 2 of the NFL season. Why? We have no clue, but he popped off anyway.
“I’m so glad we’re playing Washington early in the year because it’s going to be hot out there, we’re going to be running hurry-up offense and he’s going to get fatigued,” Brown said. “And I’m not sure if you have watched film before, but when he gets fatigued, he taps out. He just falls down to the ground, and you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, is he hurt? Is something wrong with him?’ No, he’s just giving the guy on the sidelines enough time to mosey on out there so he can get up, go to the sidelines, catch a breather, get something to drink and then he comes right back out.
“And then people are like, ‘I thought he was hurt.’ No, he got tired. But you know what, that’s exactly what we’re going to have to do when we play Washington. We’re going to have to play hurry-up offense and make them tired.”
The best part is Redskins’ head coach Jim Zorn’s reply when told of the comments.
“That’s awesome,” Zorn said with a chuckle. “What a great strategy.”
Haynesworth gave a response to the comments as well, but we don’t think it was as funny as Zorn’s.
Good,” Haynesworth said. “Let him think that.”
