Jason Jones can't really be expected to make us all forget Albert, but it'd be darn nice if he played that well! Still, here are some good thoughts on that and Washburn's plan sans Albert:
Defensive line coach Jim Washburn says he has dreaded being asked the Haynesworth question the entire off-season, but it sounds like he already has an answer in Jones and the rest of the Titans defensive line through a collective effort, especially if Jones and young players like ends Jacob Ford and William Hayes step forward in 2009.
"I dreaded this when he left, because every person was going to ask me what we’re going to do with Albert gone. I’m just going to coach the guys we’ve got and we’re going to be fine," Washburn said. "If Jason, Jacob [Ford] and Will [Hayes] step up we won’t miss anybody. We’ll roll on."
