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.
Good post. I generally trust Clayton's judgment.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

Without Orakpo and Chris Wilson, we probably wouldn't have the personnel, but with them, it's not an issue.

NT Aubrayo Franklin is a UFA for San Francisco, and while I generally don't like to pay guys coming off career years, salary structure among DL players is so whacky it hardly matters. The highest payed player in the Eagles front seven is...Darren Howard.

Who plays the inside linebacker positions? Fletch seems too small.

Here's Scouts' take on Franklin:
Quote:
Comment: Franklin has the strength and leverage skills to be effective against the run. He does a good job of recognizing blocking schemes and is quick to attack with his hands. He is tough to move off the ball due his low center of gravity and his ability to stack inside. He does a good job of occupying blocks and allowing linebackers to make plays. He has limited range on the outside. He is also somewhat limited as a pass-rusher due to a lack of speed and moves. He relies primarily on power to create an inside push and has an effective bull rush.
He seems to have had solid back to back years:
2008 46 tkl, 33 solo, 1 sacks, 2 ff
2209 36 tkl, 25 solo, 2 sacks, 1 int

I would imagine that he'd be a younger option than Casey Hampton and less expensive than Vince Wilfork.

I'd imagine Fletch, Blades, and McIntosh would all see about equal reps. I'd also like to add a player with experience in the scheme at low cost.

It's hard to honestly see Fletcher as an every down player at age 35, no matter what scheme we play. For two years now, he's been very well protected within a scheme. It goes both ways though. We could afford to protect him because we knew he would not miss tackles even if he was the only guy at the ball.

In the 3-4, Fletcher would be marginalized, but he absolutely could do the job.

when you've got a guy whose biggest complaints are that he's not able to give you his full potential in the way that you're using him I believe that you should listen

we were all complaining about blache using his linemen just to occupy the defenders (more of a 3-4 thing if I'm not mistaken) and not allowing a true pass rush.. now we wanna bitch that people want to rush the passer? he was complaining that he WASN'T earning his paycheck, yes.. in those words.. by the way he was being used, I'll take that any day

what the hell is going on?

I'm more than willing to embrace that observation because I find little fault in a guy complaining about wanting to do more, as opposed to being criticized for doing less.

Last year is over and done with, we'll have a new staff in place that I'm sure is well aware of Albert's discontent and will find ways to maximize his talents. As far as I'm concerned he has a clean slate and a new beginning.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

You do what's best for the team, and Haynesworth doesn't get to decide what is best -- the coaches do. Rushing the passer is great, but that is not the only important thing on defense. So, in short, Haynesworth should shut-up and do what he's told to by the coaches. Sure, they could be wrong, but you just don't openly question your boss' abilities and imply that you know better.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

There's a Rams / Saints playoff game from 2000 on NFL network on right now. Should show some of what Haslett's defense is about even if he was head coach at the time.

Jason Reid's summary


I don't know if I agree with Haslett's take on Carter. His time in the 3-4 in San Fran was not too good, as I remember. Maybe he sees previously-uncoached potential that I don't.
