Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

I think it's too early to give up on a guy as talented as AH, but that's going to be up to Shanahan and his staff to decide. I would bet he's not going anywhere.

I would think if we were moving to a hybrid, then the goal would be that Haynesworth comes off in the 3-4 portion, thus giving him the plays off he needs to come full strength on the 4-3 style plays. Could be viewed as a way of making the scheme fit the players.

Spanos from the Steelers is a great hire IMO

AH played in some 3-4 looks as a Titan

Rank Gray, Zimmer, Crennel, and Haslett (the candidates we know the skins had contact with) in order from best option to worst option. If Haslett is #1 or #2 on your list then you're not basing your opinion on the actual records of any of these men.

If I see signs that things are changing, i'll give them a chance. If I see history repeating itself, and that history is full of failure, i'm not going to stick my head in the sand and ignore whats happening. I WANT to give Snyder, Allen, Shanahan, and now Haslett the benefit of the doubt. But they've got to give me some real evidence that things are different. Up until now, they haven't. They might say all the right things about wanting to win, but so does every single owner, GM, and coach in this league. They all say the exact same things. Its actions that count. So far, the actions do not* look promising and i'm not going to delude myself just to have some temporary false excitement and hope.

* - Edited
Once again you're assuming that we can get whoever we want. Zimmer and Crennel obviously didn't want to come here.. just like Cowher. That's a really strange way to base things.

lol you've got to be kidding

you can't rebuild your whole roster in a season, this isn't Madden

if you have a QB that can't throw certain balls well, you let him throw the ones that he can then you look into getting somebody who can

like I said, you can't get every player that fits the scheme perfectly overnight, so to not adjust based on what you have would be purely idiotic

they're not exclusive of each other.. but you can only do so much in one year

Well, there's this guy who used to play for us back when it wasn't a requirement that you play your college ball in the SEC to play DT for the Redskins.

He's not an every down player, I don't think, but if you want to bring in a veteran to rotate at the position with him, he'll play well in the scheme.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

Since some have hi-jacked this thread into the Haynesworthy thread....I would like to say I am a bit unimpressed with Haslett, but I will support him and give him every chance to prove himself. The defense has a ton of good talent that was not nurtured and used correctly. I was not a big fan of Blache and his bend but dont break style. I particularly did not like how he handled his safety's and LB's, in particular how terrible they were at disguising the blitz.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

JLC just said on NFL Network that Haynesworth & Shanny might bump heads when it comes to the 3-4 defense.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

f*** Haynesworth, he needs to shut the hell up and be happy with his massive contract and play his fat ass off...on a lighter note, I'm pretty happy just to have someone established on the payroll as the defensive coordinator

I just don't get the hate. AH came and played as his previous years had shown he would. When we were stuffing the Giants in the first game on 3rd and 4th down, He was one of the main reasons.
I am glad to see alot of the staff coming together now, and maybe Shanahan will have the whole staff together in the next few days, that would be a good thing right off the bat.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

I'm fine with Haslett. To me, he or Zimmer, or Crennel, (basically the other only guys I heard that were in the running) would have been fine too.

Apart from not wanting anyone from the current staff to stay, I didn't really have a favorite for D-coordinator.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

AH better get used to the words Nose Tackle. I do like the idea of RAK at OLB. I doubt Fletcher makes a good transition to the 3-4. if the Skins didnt need Oline so badly id say they should go after the ILB from Bama. McClain i believe is his name.
at this point any need adressed is an improvement. take the best available.
