jeez just how many rookie wideouts have panned out over the years. as of right now the Bucs have little

next to nothing.

For the skins? None. For the Eagles? hmm Djax looks like a stud so far.. Maclin looks positive. Hell Riley Cooper will probably be better than anyone the skins have on there roster.

Not worried at all. It will work itself out. He's too much of a force not to play him.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan shot down speculation that defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth's play in the preseason finale was a disappointment. The coach said Haynesworth "did a good job" and "keeps getting better."

Shanahan and his staff had been rumored to be upset with the effort that Haynesworth displayed last Thursday against the hosting Arizona Cardinals.

But while addressing the media for the first time since reviewing the game film, Shanahan on Monday afternoon actually defended Haynesworth.

"Any time a person plays the defensive end position and nose [tackle] position, it takes some time, and isn’t going to happen over night," Shanahan said of Haynesworth, who played all four quarters of the preseason finale, taking 49 of the 55 defensive snaps. "He got a lot of plays, and I thought he did a good job considering playing as many plays as he did do, and playing a couple different positions. It was work that was well-needed, and he played hard."

Shanahan said that Haynesworth, who made four tackles while splitting time between right defensive end and nose tackle, still is learning, and although his play wasn't perfect, it was encouraging.

"It’s not just the effort, you’ve got to get used to the technique," Shanahan said. "You’re playing multiple positions, it’s going to be tough. That’s just part of it. He worked hard, made a few mistakes here and there, and he’s getting better."

Another rumor involving Haynesworth that was flying around indicated that Shanahan and his staff were still displeased with the players' conditioning and as a result, were unsure if he would even play in the season opener Sunday night against the visiting Dallas Cowboys.

Shanahan shot down those notions as well and said that Haynesworth isn't the only player still working to improve his conditioning.

"He’s in much better shape than he was before," Shanahan said. "I think that’s the question you ask for the first game about anybody on your team. Nobody’s played a full game yet. Most guys plays have been about in the 30s and 40s. But most people don’t have to play the whole game. Most guys are half the snaps, and you don’t play full speed. The defensive line’s a little different, but most people play no more than 50 percent."

Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett when interviewed separately, echoed Shanahan's sentiments that Haynesworth continues to improve while making up for time lost due to his boycott of the offseason workout programs.

Haslett said he would let Shanahan answer questions of whether or not Haynesworth would play Sunday, however.

Shanahan, meanwhile, has declined to discuss plans of who will play, who will start and who comes off the bench when asked about any player, however. Clinton Portis has been the declared starting running back since the conclusion of the offseason program in June, but today Shanahan refused even to confirm that the situation remains the same, or discuss how he would use the back. So naturally, he wouldn't rule Haynesworth in or out.

He strongly implied, however, that the plan is for the lineman to play in some capacity.

"We’re going to play the best players that are available to play, and Albert is one that keeps getting better at different positions," Shanahan said.

Further indication that things might not be as bad as they seem at Redskins park, when practice concluded on Monday, players trickled off the field in various clusters. Shanahan and Haynesworth strolled up the hill leading from the fields to the team's facility side-by-side and chatting.

Kenny Britt looks like a very promising player. I doubt the Titans give him up in a deal knowing the 'skins want to get rid of Haynesworth.

They were not happy with his off-season work. But since nobody knows who Kenny Britt is, no one

wrote tons of useless stories about him.

skins FO act like AH is a wanted player. The fact he has been on the trade block way before the draft and 0 teams landed him. They are asking for too much when it comes to him. He isnt this great player that they want people to belive he is

I can't blame teams for not wanting him especially at the price the Skins are probably asking for him. Who the F wants a player that shows up out of shape and has no motivation?

I think a lot of teams would want him, believing if they don't go out of their way to publicly bash the player, he could provide a lot for their team.

The question is, when the Redskins have made it so clear that they don't want him, why SHOULD they give up a lot to get him?

Donovan McNabb (ankle) told ESPN 980 that while his ankle isn't 100 percent, he will be starting Sunday.

McNabb looked good in his return to practice Monday, reportedly showing no signs of the ankle bothering him. He might have to play with some soreness for a few weeks, but we don't expect the injury to hinder him at all.

'Skins in negotiations with Titans to deal Haynesworth

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- People with knowledge of the negotiations said Tuesday that the Washington Redskins and the Tennessee Titans are in discussions about a trade of disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

The sources spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the talks are confidential.

Washington signed Haynesworth to a $100 million contract in 2009 as a free agent, and the tackle accepted a $21 million bonus in April. It's been a nonstop battle of wills between coach Mike Shanahan and Haynesworth since then.

The Titans declined to comment, and the Redskins did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

ESPN first reported the teams were discussing a possible Haynesworth deal.
