Football Outsiders on Haynesworth
Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
I was flipping through my handy 490-page copy of Pro Football Prospectus 2008 when I came across this note on the Redskins' new defensive tackle, Albert Haynesworth:
Right end Kyle Vanden Bosch particularly benefits from the attention Haynesworth's presence draws. In the past two seasons, Vanden Bosch has averaged 0.7 sacks per game in the 22 games that Haynesworth has started. The ten times Haynesworth wasn't in the starting lineup, however, Vanden Bosch averaged 0.3 sacks per game.
The one other thing that popped out at me is that Haynesworth was the fourth most penalized defender in the league in 2007 with nine.
