Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

In case you haven't heard, internet rumors are swirling that Shanny stripped Haslett of play calling in favor of Raheem Morris during the 4th quarter of the Rams game.

Make of it what you will.

I don't know, that might be a little dramatic man. I think the players want to WIN.

Are we going to have to start a suicide watch after one loss? What the eff is up with people?

If it's true, they just need to can Has now and move on. The team can totally survive this if they want. How many times have we seen the Giants and other teams weather internal conflicts and go on to the playoffs.

Re: Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Morris takes over as DC next year, assuming the D doesn't get straightened out over the course of this season.

Right now though, I think this may be a bit overblown.

Re: Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

I won't lie, I DID see something heated going on with Haslett and Morris, but not necessarily between each other. Both were just screaming at something, not sure it was about that though.

Re: Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

Haslett's been dead man walking for a while. Not being told they were meeting with Raheem back in February (or whenever it was) should have been the only clue he needed that his time here is short. I put this on MS though. He knew what he was getting with Haz

As for this particular rumor, I don't know. I'm on vacation

Re: Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

This article is all speculation. There has not been any indication that Morris was making the calls. The article states that players were choosing sides: What evidence is there of this? Also the article quotes Shannahan, but it is not an actual quote, it is a speculation of what Shannahan might be thinking.

Re: Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

You guys know more football than I do on this site, but as I was watching the game and obviously watching the Skins play zone and "way off" receivers on the line of scrimmage, I was wondering if they could play Amendola man to man and Zone everything else. Can you do that effectively? You know, take out their best guy with our best cover guy?

Re: Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

If he did take over I didn't see much of a difference in the fourth quarter. Every single time Amendola lined up in the slot they allowed him a free release and a huge cushion.
I'm going to take a wait and see approach before jumping to conclusions. But some changes need to take place before giving up thirty points a game becomes habitual. I also do not believe all of the blame should be shouldered by Haslett.
By the way, does anyone know what type of defensive scheme Morris ran in Tampa? It would seem odd to me that Shanahan would hand over play calling responsibilities to someone who has not used the 3-4 primarily.

There was a huge difference in the 4th quarter - the huge cushion went away. Not that it helped us overall. Right now I think our secondary is just too untainted. Zone or man, well get burned either way. Rg3s gonna have to score alot of points.

I'd rather have Morris as the DC than Haz. But...I don't know if I want a change right now.

Re: Did Shanny Strip Haslett of Play Calling vs Rams?

The Redskins were playing a soft zone, which is why Bradford was able to throw for 310 yards. This is why Danny Amendola was able to have his way against the Redskins secondary. Any NFL WR can get open between a soft zone which is why Bradford continuously looked his way.

As far as Mike Shanahan being displeased with how the defensive play calling was going, why would he hand play calling duties over to the secondary coach when the defensive coordinator knows the play calling better than the secondary coach? They are not running Morris' defense. It is Haslett's defense. Something doesn't sound right to me. This could very well be garbled rumor.
