    Rams center Brown reveals team's Haynesworth strategy for Week 2 vs. Washington

    Brown Reveals Rams' Haynesworth Strategy

    Redskins Insider

    Has St. Louis center Jason Brown figured out the secret to stopping Albert Haynesworth? He seems to think so.

    A friendly hat-tip to ESPN.com's Mike Sando for spotting this St. Louis radio appearance in which Brown said in pretty simple terms that Haynesworth, a two-time Pro Bowler, tires easily.

    Brown played the last four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, where he squared off against Haynesworth and the Titans on four occasions, and Brown essentially said that in Week 2 the Rams would utilize a hurry-up offense to tire Haynesworth.

    "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."

    Following practice Sunday morning, Coach Jim Zorn was told of Brown's comments and St. Louis' presumed offensive gameplan for the Rams Sept. 20 visit to Washington.

    "That's awesome," Zorn said with a chuckle. "What a great strategy."

    Not sure how wise it is to give a guy like Haynesworth extra motivation, but as Zorn pointed out, never mind the regular season, "our guys don't want to make Albert angry at practice."

    "I don't think he said it to get Albert angry or all fired up. I think he was just making a comment. It's one man's opinion of what we do,"

    Zorn said, before flashing a smile and adding,. "maybe he's exposed some dramatic secrets to the Rams. I don't know."

    And what does Haynesworth himself make of Brown's take?

    "Good," Haynesworth said. "Let him think that."

    I now fully expect Haynesworth to have his best game of the year in week 2.

    We really don't need to give other teams bulletin board material right now. I wonder if Brown was actually serious about that though, or just joking around.

    i heard the interview over at 101espn.com (sorry for link)
    i really think he didnt mean it to stir up trouble, the hosts were saying that brown was big enough to handle the big d tackles and brown was just commenting on it.

    I'm not worried about this comment at all, in fact I love it. Brown owns Haynesworth- and he knows it. About time we got some attitude and swagger around here. We can't be scared every time we play a Pro Bowler- that's how you lose twenty seven games in two years. Bring Fat Albert on, Brown will put his lazy butt on the ground and tell him all about it after he does so!

    Just hold Haynesworth on every play. If you get caught once that's okay. Ask the Patriots and Marshall Faulk how it worked out for them in SUPERBOWL XXXVI?

    Haynesworth has 24 career sacks.

    And none of them are against Brown.

    I think it's halarious. If a few other guys on this team would grow a set like Brown has, we'd be contenders year in and year out ...

    I've seen Brown match up with Haynesworth a few times. He's paid his dues, and played great against ole headkicker ...

    Great stats their HuB, wish I could rep you for the find, but gotta spread it around ...

    I find it extra halarious that Jim Zorn is chuckling about this. Same kind of chuckling many around the league did when he got a head coaching job. And how about that second half breakdown last year? And losing to our Rams at home?

    I get a chuckle out of that ...

    Brown has the size and talent to hold up against Haynesworth.

    Now... if Romberg or Leckey had made that comment...
