Jim Haslett's inconsistent defense
 
If there's one off season move I would like to see the Redskins to make, is to replace Jim Haslett as DC, his defenses drive me nuts. One week they play great, the next week they allow RB's and QB's to run at will. The one thing I've noticed with Haslett is that he has not been able to adjust his defense to scrambling type QB's like Vick, Newton, Webb/Ponder. 2 years now with the same problem and no fix. If Leslie Frazier or Raheem Morris get fired, I would like to see either one as a replacement. Your thoughts?

I like the inconsist part.

I believe Haslett will have one more year to prove himself, that is if Shanny decide not to stick with him all the way. The defense might be inconsistent but this year is big improvement compared to last year, and that credit goes to Haslett.

The thing that worries me about Haslett is that he has always had the same inconsistent issues everywhere he's been, NO, Rams, Pitt. One week great play next week you are wondering what happened to the D from the previous week, something you never worried about w/ Petitbone. Yesterday they allowed 33 pts. do you call that a good D? With the talent on the D it should be better especially against the Vikes.

The defense looked poor against the Vikes and the immortal Joe Webb.

That said, overall the defense has been very good this year and has not been our problem. Sure, we could use more creative blitzing and the secondary has had its troubles. But if we had a competent offense we'd be in the playoff hunt. So it is hard for me to bust on Haslett too much. Raheem Morris would be nice but I would not mind bringing back Haslett.

Through 15 Weeks, the Redskins had one of the most consistent defenses in the NFL.

That's not true anymore, obviously, but it not like inconsistency is a plague that runs through this team. It's a veteran laden defense that offers you pretty much the same effort every week. This week, it failed to stop Joe Webb and Toby Gerhart. Oh well. I'll be more interested to see how it does next week against a bunch of guys we'll see again in 2012 when they are trying to win the super bowl.

And if they shut down the Eagles, no one is going to sit and lament how inconsistent they were the last two weeks.

How about against Carolina, Buffalo, Miami, Jets, NE, Minnesota?

I like the individual parts if not the scheme and execution. I think Perry Riley is a real keeper and has been a pleasant surprise this season. In fact, if you look at the front seven I'm not sure where the Skins are in need of a significant upgrade. This helps us come draft time as we can focus on depth and plug some holes in the back four.

I don't question the talent, but I do the scheme and lack of adjustment, it's been 2 years and he still hasn't adjusted to a scrambling type QB.

Re: Jim Haslett's inconsist defense
 
they had a really bad game yesterday, Wilson was terrible at Corner, Riley was out of position a ton, Reed was just Reed, not a starting saftey in the NFL. OJ at safety seemed very slow again...Safety is a much more of a concern that CB going into the offseason.

Defense was bad yesterday period.
