Kudos to Jim Haslett and Raheem Morris
 
I've been very critical of Haslett in the past and I just want to say the Saints game was his best game as our defensive coordinator. Holding Drew Brees to 46.2 completion percentage, his worst in 88 games, is an unbelievable feet.

I've been a Haslett hatter from time to time. Was waiting for a couple (more) solid performances to start my very own "I was wrong when..." thread lol. Thanks saden you took care of it for me.

Now if the offense keeps performing well I'll still have to start similar thread about the Shanahans/FO etc etc. Psssh, I'll happily eat that crow all season long watching us win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No doubt but the secondary played better than it did all last year IMO, even taking Williams blown coverage on that one TD (not the one to Graham, which is pretty hard to fault anyone for, because he's a freak).

Wondering if TEs like Graham, basketball forward type guys, will be the waive of the future for the position. The very best TEs today (Graham, Gronk) fit that mold and are big part of those high-powered offenses. New England i.e. Belichick seemed to make the conscious decision to forego WR talent this year and let the TEs takeover.

I think this past game against New Orleans was actually Haslett's 3rd best game coming behind the defense's two suffocating performances against Eli Manning and the Giants offense last season. The Redskins defense made Eli Manning look worse than a Pop Warner level quarterback in both of those games last year.

While we can all agree Eli is a great QB he is nowhere near as prolific and proficient of a passer as Drew. Breeze is a super nasty mofo and if you can stop him, you can stop anyone.

I like the addition of Morris, he is basically a second defensive coordinator, I'll wait a few more games of consistency from Haslett before I jump on his bandwagon.

Not to take anything away from Haslett in the NO game, but it's also worth pointing out that it takes time to transition from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense. The year we switched was haslett's first year, and I think he unfairly took a lot of heat for the performance that year, when it was really just a lack of talent. Now that he has that talent, we're seeing what he can do with it. Just my two cents..

Totally agree.

My only criticism of Haslett/Morris and the D is that they seem to go into prevent mode towards the end of the game. Otherwise, I think they did a hell of a job limiting one of the best offenses in the league.
