Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

Not bad to the post above...we should be conscious that it could take longer than a year for the defense to get up to speed though

I think it could come together pretty quickly if Haynseworth stepped up and embraced the NT position.
But most likely he'll gripe and Montgomery will play the NT.
But, i think we have the good enough OLB/ILBs.

I don't think we're as far away as some would think, i don't think were that much further away then the Packers were when the decided to make the switch.

I agree, if they try to make the switch over night we will have problems but if they go hybrid maybe.

Imo Rocky too small for this position and would struggle getting off blocks because he's not often asked to as a 4-3 WILL.

does anyone know how rocky and blades compare in hight and weight ?
i'm guessing rocky is taller and slimmer while blades is short and stocky.
is a short and stocky guy really who we want taking on blocks from big, heavy o-linemen ?

Why?
Daniels played well last year and he's a natural fit for a 3-4 DE.

I didn't see Carter play when he was in San Fran, i can only go by what i heard. And i heard that he struggled; but Carter is a good at 4-3 DE and being that he has experiece playing 3-4 OLB it stands to reason he could be decent at 3-4 OLB.

Rocky is around 6'2 238
Blades is around 5'10 242

Would you rather a 'taller, slimmer' guy who isn't used to taking on blocks from heavy OL or an actual SAM backer who is used to taking on a shedding blocks?

This is why we need to switch to the 5-2. That is what our best players are built for.

well you said rocky was too small ? seems to me it would be easy to get rocky to gain a few pounds. just to be clear though, i'm not saying rocky is the right guy for the job. i just don't see how blades would fair much better. blades seems too small to me.

Because Blades has actually played 4-3 SAM backer.
Meaning he's used to the pounding of taking on and shedding blocks.
In a 4-3 scheme that we run the Rocky the WILL is protected by design and shouldn't have to fight off blocks from OL very often.
In a 3-4 scheme one of the ILB is going to have a role like that of a 4-3 SAM and one ILB will be 'protected' much like a MLB/WILL.

And for the ILB role known as 'buck' i think Blades is better suited then Rocky.

BTW-Maybe small is the wrong word, but i think you know what i mean
Blades at 5'10 242 is much more stout then Rocky at 6'2 238.

During a conference call Monday to discuss his first Pro Bowl appearance, Skins linebacker London Fletcher said he didn't think the transition would be a problem.

"Our main defense was basically an under front that was similar, really, to what Dallas did ... the way we aligned our front," said Fletcher. "The only difference was instead having a stand-up outside linebacker, Andre Carter just had his hand on the ground. You can imagine him standing up, we're pretty much Dallas."


FanFeedr | NFL | 25 Jan 10 | Fletcher’s OK with a 3-4 defense

Its not going to be a seamless transistion but i don't think its quite the round peg square hole you make it out to be.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

[QUOTE=30gut;657743]I'm a bit late to the party but Haslett is a welcome change imo regardless of his scheme...

...I think that Haynesworth would make a good possibly great NT if he were to embrace the position, but most likely he won't. But he could be an equally disruptive 3-4 DE.


***DE-Haynesworth (He should freakin dominate here)

OLB-Orakpo-Beast***

Wow.. imagine those two on the same side

you nailed the Carter thing..he openly resisted playing LB
for the 49ers

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

Haslett is actually by no means a surprising hire, Snyder wanted him in 1999 to replace Norv Turner even before he had officially bought the team. After purchasing the team he made an immediate move to get Haslett then the DC in Pittsburgh. Cower refused because he couldn't replace Haslett on such short notice just before training camp was about to begin. In fact Cower became so enraged at Snyder's poaching attempt that in 2004 he refused permission for Russ Grimm to join Gibbs' staff. Snyder has waited eleven years to get Haslett on the Redskins staff, the hiring of Shanahan helped make it possible for him.

I'm not saying he's the 'answer'.
I'm just saying that he appears more suited to playing the 'buck' ILB in a 3-4 then any of our current linebackers.

Imo an 'answer' at that position would be Rolando McClain.
