Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and defender Albert Haynesworth appear to have mended their relationship. Haynesworth essentially said earlier this month that his medical condition had been underplayed by the coach in order to make the Redskins look good and Haynesworth look bad. "I think everybody would like to be liked, that's part of being a head football coach," Shanahan said. "But you want to be respected as well. I've got a job to do, and Albert's got a job to do, and his job is to be the best football player he can possibly be, and it's my job to see to it." Haynesworth finally played nice after Friday night's game against the Jets, joking that he was heading to Shanahan's house for dinner and a cigar. Shanahan's comeback on Sunday: "Well, he made me buy the drinks and the cigars."
