You're all over the place. Nothing is different, though the actions are promising... do you even know what you're thinking?
"Nothing is different, though the actions are promising?" when the hell did i say that?

EDIT - I re-read my post - I left out the crucial word "not" between "do" and "look promising." That certainly makes a difference, lol.

And yes, Haslett is, in my opinion, the worst of the four names that have been linked to the DC job here. However, we could always have "done worse" by hring Miss Piggy or Kermit the Frog or a just a rock to coach our defense.

Matt Mosley is the Founder, CEO, President, and sole memeber of the Official Media Jason Campbell Fan Club and will undoubtably petitition for his entrance to the Pro Football Hall of Fame years before his eligibility even begins. You should have all figured out we weren't the same person a long, long time ago

Re: Haslett to accept Defensive Coordinator

I'm not going to freak out about this. I'm looking forward to seeing what they have in mind. I'm tired of being one of the "Top Ten" defenses that can't hold a lead and scares absolutely no one. IMO we've been one of the most over rated defenses in the league the last couple of years. I'm willing to wait and see what someone else can do with this group. My first thought was, "oh no", but I think there's a lot of assuming going on and I'm open to seeing how they want to use our personell. I don't think we'll go straight 3-4 and I certainly don't think our previous DC used our guys to the best of their ability.

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.
