Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

The thing about personnel is that we're no worse suited for the 3-4 than we are for the 4-3 right now. The key is whether or not Haslett is a guy who simply wants to impliment the 3-4, or whether he can actually call it. If he can call it, we can absolutely play it.

In either defense, we need an extra linebacker and more DT depth. And our secondary still kind of blows, but it's not a lost cause, I don't think. There's players in it that you can win with. Maybe even Hall.

First priority is still the offense. Free agency should be adequate for filling those holes in the front seven.

Yeah I remember that. OBC called him Hayzelett!!! lol. Then New Orleans proceeded to kick the shit out of us and OBC looked like a tool.

Summed up my feelings exactly. If we are the 11th ranked defense, but we hold onto a 28 24 lead with 2 minutes to go, I will be happy.

Gregg Williams took a horrible defense over in New Orleans and made it elite. In the NFL, the level of raw talent is comparable on every single NFL team. COACHING is what makes the difference between mediocre/poor and excellent in this league. Haslett may have a great defenisve mind, but if he were a great coach, the results (his defenses performance over a decade) would testify to that.
What are you basing this on...and more important when? People keep talking about Haslett's defenses when he was a HC, and honestly I don't think that's a good assessment. I mean Spags was a great DC in New York, but that hasn't necessarily translated well into his stint in St. Louis as a head coach.

If you tell me that Haslett was a piss poor defensive coordinator when he was with New Orleans in 1996, and the Steelers in 1997, 1998, and 1999, then I'll piss all over the corn flakes like you. Otherwise then all of us need to have a wait and see attitude about this.

Oh and there is a worst DC than Haslett that the Redskins could have hired, his name is Greg Blache.

Ugh, the OBC. We should have all known what was coming just from his opening presser. He basically screamed I'm not ready to be a NFL coach.

People keep forgetting that he was a DC with St. Louis for 2-1/2 years (3 full offseasons to implement his system) before being named interim head coach.

Greg Blache was never in consideration for the DC job in 2010. Its been beleived for months that he, along with his uber-passive version of GG's defensive system, was retiring.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

History shows us that Shanahan hasn't got a clue when it comes to hiring DCs.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

I don't get it ... why don't people think AH is a good fit for NT? He's 6'6" 300+ lbs ... seems good to me.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

I hate to be negative, but Hasslet and Venturi are proven losers. I am shocked that these are the guys we picked. Grey would have been an excellent choice, except for the fact that he could be viewed as a turn coat. Still, I would have rather had anyone, over this defensive staff so far. I think he is setting himself up to have the same crappy defense here as he did in Denver.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

I don't know much about Venturi as a position coach quite honestly. As a head coach though he blows. But he's not here to be our head coach

Haslett is getting a bit of a bad rap here. He's not a terrible DC. And if he sucks, one thing we've learned from Shanahan is that he won't hesitate to throw his DC overboard and just pick someone else.

Seems like a complete waste of his talents to me. The NT's job is to just clog. AH has the talent to do more than clog...he's got a 100 mil contract to show for THOSE talents...not the ability to clog.

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

In a 3-4 I think you can move AH around, he doesn't need to be pegged as a NT or DE.
