We already told you about Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth failing his conditioning test for the second straight day on Friday. Haynesworth actually appears to be in pretty good shape, making me believe that Coach Mike Shanahan is intentionally trying to make Haynesworth look bad. I understand where Shanahan is coming from — he’s trying to assert his dominance after Haynesworth skipped the team’s minicamp.
So just how bad is the test Shanahan’s been putting Haynesworth through? Not so bad apparently, as FOX 5 reporter Lindsay Murphy can attest. Murphy decided to run the 300 yard shuttle runs (25 yards back and forth six times) to see how her times stacked up against Albert’s. Remember, Haynesworth has to complete the first 300 yard shuttle run in under 70 seconds and complete the second shuttle run in under 73 seconds with only a three minute break between sets. Murphy finished her first set in 68 seconds, besting Albert’s time. Not too bad for a reporter. Here’s the Lindsay Murphy conditioning video from MyFoxDC:
