It was time for Albert Haynesworth to go. After being lauded as the next great reclamation project in New England before he ever took a snap (and then fell down) in anger, Haynesworth was alternately ineffective and injured during most of his tenure. The final straw came last week, when Haynesworth followed a holding penalty in the second quarter with what Boston Globe NFL writer Greg Bedard called "...three of the worst plays you will see out of an NFL defensive tackle." His time was up.
Haynesworth isn't the only player whose time should be up, though; there are veterans around the league who are simply collecting a paycheck they don't deserve and occupying playing time that should be going to younger, hungrier players. (Yes, Chad Ochocinco is one of them, but we are contractually limited to only one Pats kick-in-the-teeth per post by our editor in chief.)
