Crtystalzed my thoughts eloquently. What the hell is on Haslett's resume that jumps out and says; "This guy will be a great DC!" The D in Pitt from 97-99 was solid, but how much of that had to do with Cowher. The Saints D from 2000-05 was a joke, the Rams from 2006-08 was a joke. I don't like this move. What will compound this potential disaster is a switch to the 3-4.

Why a switch to the 3-4 is bad, at least in the short term:

1) NT - see above
2) DE - We have one superstar in the making at RDE, a solid player in AC who may have another good year or two, and Jarmon we appeared to be strong at LDE before his injury. Both Jarmon and Rak are too small for a 3-4 DE and neither can play LB in a 3-4.
3) Our $ 10M/yr. DT is not a guy who has ever played at NT, he doesn't have a wide, low center of gravity, he would have to be a DE in the 3-4. Haynesworth is a 4-3, 1 technique, DT.
4) We have two LBs, one is a true 4-3 MLB and has a year or two left, McIntosh could make the switch, but we have at least two starting LB positions to fill, while our OL, QB and RB situations are a mess.
5) CBs - in a 3-4 to shut down top offenses the CBs must be physical, Rogers can be physical, but Hall & physical match about as good as "lamb & tuna fish".

Unless the plan is to tank 2010 to get another high draft position and build for 2011, I don't see how Haslett or a switch to the 3-4 makes any sense.

It wouldn't shock me one bit if Haynesworth is traded.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

Yeah I'm not high on switching to a 3-4 either. We just don't have the personnel for it and we'd have to make too many moves if we wanted to be solid defensively. And I'm not too high on Haslett either. His defenses have been absolutely nothing special for as long as I can remember and on top of that the majority of our defense is made for a 4-3.

I know DS has deep pockets, but I have a hard time believing he'll just part with the $40+ M signing bonus for AH after 1 year.

I think if we could swap out AH for Vince Wilfork in a possible three team trade, it might be worth entertaining.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

Wow...not often we see a thread in which everyone basically agrees. So the Haslett deal is a head-scratcher. Any guesses what lil D/Allen/Mike could be thinking?

-Evidently there isn't a ton of DC talent out there. Wouldn't that sort of lead one to believe keeping a guy on to maintain what we're doing makes sense i.e. Gray? You want a great mind to help w/ a transition into a totally new scheme like the 3-4 instead of a mediocre mind.

-Is Haslett just a stop-gap? Sure to be gone next year.

I think it's safe to say the defense will not be better this year than last, and maybe likely to get worse.

I think we're going to give 3-4 looks but I really don't think we're going 3-4 full-time

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

good hire. haslett is just what the defense needs. a former player who's a hard ass and won't coddle landry, haynesworth and hall. and why is everyone crying about the 3-4? did any of the coaches say they were switching the defense? people need to relax.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

But if we did switch to a 3-4....Peppers anyone?

Seriously though I think we won't be using the 3-4 with the regularity some are concerned we will

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

They are not retarded, they aren't just gonna switch Def schemes without having the correct pieces in place. I like Hasslet, he seems to be a no nonsense kind of dude who should keep the players working hard, and the word aggresive makes me tingle.

I agree with SmootSmack. I don't see us going strictly 3-4 right away.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

With the players we have, I dont think we go to a 3-4 next year... our defensive line is actually one of our strong points... so I would think if they were going 3-4, It would be Carter, Haynesworth and Jarmon, with Orkapo moved back to LB... and I'd really like to see him more at DE... than McIntosh, Fletcher and then we'd have to bring someone else in I'd think?

I'm very intersted to see how this works out...

Either way, I'm a fan of Hasletts, I think its a good move and I continue to really like the people who are being brought in right now and I think its a big step in the right direction for the organization...
