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.
Who cares. The Defense was worse this year than it was last year. The best teams in the league don't chase after the most expensive free agent each year. It never works. They could have spent that money on 4 players.

Re:Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

44Deezel, i agree the d was worse. but dont hate on AH for doing his job, i would say hate the mindset thst leads to that type of contract. That is what everyone wants to see change.

The giants chose the get 4 for the price of one with canty, boley and a couple others all lesser talents than big al. how did that work out for them?

our d front line was better with big al, our back7 with hall instead of springs - not so much.

bottomline hopefully Haslett uses our players to their strength.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

The more I read into Haslett's career, Mike's history w/ coaches and our current defensive roster, I tend to believe Haslett won't be very successful and won't last long. Mike doesn't seem to know enough about defense to match a great defensive mind w/ best fit players. Typically he's bounced all over the place w/ one DC to the next, all the while playing the dominant role in drafting guys. Result: you don't get a consistent system defensive players grow into nor do you get defensive studs a great defensive mind can envision doing a certain number of things on the field.

For those who say Williams single-handedly turned NO into a dominant defense, I think Darren Sharper may wish to disagree. Without him Williams' defense is rather mediocre. The same goes when Ellis cannot be dominant in the middle. Somebody in NO was brilliant in bringing Sharper in (maybe it was Gregg). There's little evidence Haslett knows who he "needs" to make a great defense. There's even less evidence Mike knows what his DC needs to make it happen.

Threaten to trade him to the Raiders. That should get him to go along with anything we want him to do, heck I think we could get Big Al to play CB with a threat to send him to Oakland.

Loosing $40 million for Snyder is like me loosing a $50 bill. Sure it sucks but I'll live and so will Snyder.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

yeah!?!? /confusion. I don't know, this is not anything but a wait and see, it could be a success, failure, or just average...in other words failure. Hopefully he knows how to utilize the talent...Haynesworth, Orakpo, Carter, Fletcher, Landry, Horton...the list goes on, if he can harness the ability of all the individuals then we should have a good defense going forward

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
Seems like you missed this part:
If we can't find them now, then we might not switch schemes immediately, but our long term goal should be to move towards those schemes which are most effective.

I agree. Good thing we have more than 1 year. That's the main problem with the skins and its fans: impatience. Here I am making an argument about long-term philosophy and all you can think about is 1 year.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

Outside of looking at some relatively meaningless rankings does anyone have any real insight as to what Haslett brings to the table as DC? I'm kinda getting tired of hearing about how much he sucks without hearing any good reasons to back up that thinking.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

A little nugget from JC:

NFL: Odds against run-oriented New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens in divisional round - ESPN

Q: Can you see the Redskins being a 3-4 defense? You said earlier this year that success in a 3-4 is dependent on finding a talented nose tackle -- well we have the best in Albert Haynesworth supposedly, and Brian Orakpo looks like he would succeed as a DeMarcus Ware-type 3-4 OLB. It seems like a natural move to me.

Christopher in Olney, Md.

A: That's why Shanahan hired Jim Haslett. He brings the 3-4 scheme from his days as defensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers. One of the first things Shanahan wanted to do was switch to a 3-4. Haslett talked with Shanahan throughout the season about joining his staff with an aggressive 3-4 scheme that features plenty of blitzes. Orakpo already has one season as a rushing linebacker in a 4-3. He shouldn't have any problem adjusting to a 3-4. It's a good fit.
