Who Can You Compare Haslett Defensive Scheme To?
 
I keep hearing that Haslett is/will bring an aggressive style of defense to D.C. but i've must have never pay attention to his past defense scheme as a coordinator. Is there a defensive coordinator you can compare him too? Will we see an aggressive attack style of defense like Rex Ryan has the Jets playing? Or Dick Lebeau (I think i spelled that wrong) in Pittsburgh?

God I hope so...but what I bet will happen..is that we will be the worst defense from the 25yrd line to the 25 yrd line...but our redzone D will be top notch haha.

Can't think of any DC i could compare him to, i just want our Defense to attack make the OF react to our Defense.

I don't think we can find someone to compare with Haslett because we do not even know what kind of system Haslett is going to install.. Although, we did hire Spanos, which gives us a hint that 3-4 defense is a possibility.. As of right now, I believe Haslett is going to use 3-4/4-3 hybrid system.. Which is the system Arizona is using, I believe.. But we all have to wait until we find out what kind of system Haslett wants to use..

By the way, I really think the hiring of Spanos is a great move.. He has developed pro bowlers LBs in Steelers in last 15 years..

Look at the Saints D from 2000-05 and the Rams from 06-08. Or if we make the move to a primary 3-4, look at Steelers 97-99 (although Dick Lebeau & Dom Capers had a lot to do with the building of that D). It's hard to tell what to expect, we keep hearing "aggressive, aggressive, no nonsense", but when you look at the performance of his defenses since 2000, they weren't very good and didn't show improvment year-over-year.

I'm from Missouri on this one, Haslett has to "Show me".

EDIT: With the Spanos hire and KO moving back to a defensive assistant this could be a clue to what our base D will be. Spanos is a LB coach in the 3-4, KO coached LBs in a 4-3. Spanos is our new LB coach, looks like a 3-4 base to me.

I don't know of anyone I can compare him too, but I've been searching high and low trying to find something in his past history as a coach that would make him more than average. So far, everything I've found is just further proof of the fact he's "average"

I've never thought it fair to compare what a particular coach did in another location to what he might do here. Evey place and situation is different, so while Haslett has been an average coach elsewhere, it has no bearing on what he may be able to accomplish here. I'll give him the bebefit of the doubt, but no comparison.

I think the real thing to hope for is Haslett brings a brand new system...not brand new to us but brand new for him. Hopefully he's gotten a lot smarter how he schemes. His defenses in the past have been mediocre at best. All I remember about the Saints and Rams under Haslett is they couldn't stop anybody. Not sure what aggression means to him either...anybody got a guess?

It's kinda funny, we bring in a HC who will see the Hall of Fame. He's produced decent offenses. He's been to the SB. I think we can safely say he will take us into the post season or give us a chance to get to the post season. I'm tired of seeing 9-7, and hoping to make it into the play offs through a back door wild card position.

But, we bring in a DC who actually has not produced as a DC, and actually failed at being a HC. I mean he's only as good as the last position he's coached well at, which is what? LB's?

I just hope that he's not a DC who has an attitude and says it's either my way or the highway. I hope he's open to ideas. I also hope he for no other reason has a break out year as DC and has our defense really doing well.

Well didn't Gregg Williams fail as a HC as well? Also, he had a horrible stint in Jax after leaving the Redskins and is now doing a pretty decent job in N.O.Haslett had some good years in Pittsburgh and New Orleans. I think we all need to calm down and see what happens.

Very good point.

A factor in the failure of Rams defenses under Haslett was that he didn't have a lot of talent to work with. This does not exonerate him, it just means that Ruhskins is correct in his wait-and-see admonition.

It's true I can't think of an outstanding defensive player under Haslett in NO or St. Louis.
