People may say I'm crazy and a traitor, but we should make a go for Wade Phillips when he gets ass kicked out of Dallas.

Re: The Official Defense Has Major Issues/Fire Jim Haslett Thread

Haslett is garbage, but we kind of have to stick it out because firing people at week 3 is just like we've done in the past, and it brings no good results.

We are heading for a nice draft pick, we are seriously seeing a team that may win only 3 or 4 games this year. We can hopefully continue to build through the draft and hope that next year things start out better...

We have potential, but Haslett has to start adjusting his plays, rather than continue to blitz his linebackers because he feels like only he's able to do it.
Can't keep blitzing like that in a 3-4. To me a 3-4 defense is more akin to a reading D, where you have the extra LB to cover an outside run or a short pass. Sure you can blitz, but you better have a monster D line, which we don't!!!!!

It's simpler than that. A 3-4 D has three statues up front to stuff the run and open up lanes for the LBs. I saw none of that.

Plus having a whole bunch of former DEs as your LBs in the 3-4 is not the best of ideas.

That needed level of faith has a way of dissapearing when the going gets tough. I just know we don't have a bunch of fair-weather fans here do we?....sike

Yeah, but if you don't have a D line where are those gaps? Also all you have to do is have a bunch of quickie slants called to negate the rush, like the Rams did. It all boils down to the D line. If you don't have the D line to rush, play zone.

Mayhem that's the plan. Implement a 3-4 defense we'll suck at not having the personnel and bring McNabb in for a year to save face.

Re: The Official Defense Has Major Issues/Fire Jim Haslett Thread

We can't fire haslett now. That's just ****ing stupid, our players don't fit a 3-4 but that means we have to build into a 3-4.. Dallas and GB both struggled their first year in the scheme.

Re: The Official Defense Has Major Issues/Fire Jim Haslett Thread

THe players can learn the 3-4 and adapt to it. THe question is do we have the talent to do it. I don't think it is fair to call for Haslett's head so soon. OVerall, our team is hurting badly with depth on both sides of the ball. Kyle has no depth at O line, no Wr corp to speak of other than Moss, and a beat up feature RB that is obviously on the downside of his career. Jim has no D line, especially no NT, no depth in the D backfield, and is a bit thin at LB to run a 3-4. I will go out on a limb as say we wouldn't be all that much better if we did run a 4-3, as we would still be woefully deficient in terms of depth.

What?
He's always suffocated the living shit out of our offense for last few 1000 years.

They had a goal line stand today. We let some backup scrub score a killer touchdown.

What he asks out of his NT would go much better in Albert Haynesworth's mind.

Re: The Official Defense Has Major Issues/Fire Jim Haslett Thread

We simply do not have the depth to contend at this time. I know it has been ages since we had a team that was really fun to watch( 1999 Skins were great), but like I have said, you can't build a solid foundation with changing HC, systems, and players all the time. Folks don't want to hear this, but it is true. We are probably going to have to suffer through 1 or 2 more subpar seasons of football before we see light at the end of the tunnel, unless Shanny and co get the axe and we start all over again.
