Of course it improved due to better talent brought on board, Kerrigan, Bowen, Cofield, Atogwe, Wilson are examples. They better have improved after spending a 1st (Kerrigan) and and 80 Mil on Atogwe, Bowen and Cofield. Haslett still couldn't adjust to scrambling QB's and I'm not talking about Vick or Newton, how about Matt Moore, Fitzpatrick and Ponder? All scrambled at will, Ponder got hurt and then Webb took over, Haslett couldn't even adjust to those guys.

Lets talk about the examples you gave. Matt Moore and the Dolphins were playing really good football and went on a little streak. Plus the Dolphins D was playing really well, I dont think Matt Moore really did too much damage against us. It was letting Reggie Bush finally play well and score 2 TD's.

Fitzpatrick - if I recall, there were not many teams in the NFL able to stop the Bills offense, especially when we were playing them. Again, if i recall Fred Jackson torched us for a couple hundred, not so much Fitzpatrick. Ponder wasn't doing jack against us and Webb took over and made some plays.

This crap about being able to plan or game plan for mobile QB's is a joke. You prepare to play a team and their weapons. You can't game plan soley against Vick, if so you'll get destroyed by everyone else. Same with Cam. I think people are just looking for something to pick at. And stopping mobile QB's isn't a REDSKIN problem, its generally an NFL problem. VIck, Newton (forgive me if I can't think of another mobile QB of their talentS) are not the normal QB.

This is ridiculous.

It was the teams idea to switch to the 3/4 not Jim's he was just the coach we hired to make the switch. He improved a ton this year so there is no reason to switch coaches when they are improving. For pretty much the past 15 yrs its been the O thats hurt this team. If our O could just have one more long drive per game instead of a 3 and out our D would be ranked close to the top 5.

Re: Jim Haslett's inconsist defense

I think we need to keep Haslett. The defense is currently rated 13, last year we were ranked 31. That is a difference of 18 spots. We are only missing a few pieces from being a consistent top ten defense.

We need a true coverage corner. Landry set us back by not getting the surgery last offseason. The defense is different with him healthy.
