New England Patriots Links 9/02/11 - It Takes Four Hands To Handle A Haynesworth

Albert Haynesworth makes his much anticipated debut last night.

Albert Haynesworth speaks to the media following his preseason debut last night.

On whether him being substituted in and out is about conditioning: "It's not conditioning. And what we do here - which is pretty good, I mean unbelievable, it will help you – is that we rotate a lot. We have a lot of depth. We had good depth at Tennessee, but here, we have great depth. We have guys that go to any other team and start. Like coach tells, like Pep [Pepper Johnson], he tells us, ‘Go as hard as you can for however many plays. If that's three, four plays, do that, come out and we'll have someone else send another wave of attack in.' That's what we're going to do, I'm going to play as hard as I possibly can. When I get gassed, I'm going to come out."

On if he and Andre Carter talk to each other about playing for the Patriots: "Yeah, we were talking, just about how different it is and how we really like this place. To me, it's a career-saving place for me to come. I had no idea it would be like this, but it's unbelievable and I wish I kind of took two years ago and came here."

Shaun Ellis talks to the media about how he feels after his first game action with the Patriots, and if getting some snaps before the regular season was important.

"I feel good, I feel good. They did a great job of getting me in shape and doing the things they need to do to get me ready. It's a tremendous organization, everybody here has treated me with the utmost respect, so I feel good about going into Monday night."

"Yeah, it was, just because I had to work on my timing live. It's just one of those things…you have to get out there and get the flow of the game and just get used to playing in a Patriots uniform, to see how they operate, go about things on game day. It was fun. I learned a lot too, being on the sidelines, just how they go through coaching changes and all that stuff."
