No.

Average d coordinators adjust the scheme and tweak the overall game-plan throughout the game to put their players in the best position to defend what the offense is bringing on the next down, next series, next quarter. I haven't seen Haslett do this. He tends to adjust at half-time, and not always get that right.
Good d coordinators make adjustments at least every series, and get most of them right.
Great d coordinators force the offense to adjust to the defense!

Lousy d coordinators make fewer adjustments and get fewer right. See: Haslett, James.

Specifically, Haslett let the secondary get torched by Danny freaking Amendola for nearly a half without putting a safety over the top on every play to shut em down!!! Why the eff did we go out and sign DL free agents, draft another and two top OLBs in the last two years if not to have a consistent front seven? And the guys standing in for Rak are getting pressures and sacks. Oh, yeah, a guy name London Fletcher plays in that bunch too. So give your hobbit DBs a hand out there when they face AJ Green, or a hot-handed VJax. And enough with the suicide stunts, a$$hole.

Well geez I've thought forever Wade was in Denver then and nobody said boo, was it after then? One of the DCs Mike canned in the post-Elway years? That might explain it then...but bottom line, if not Wade find another guy who can give our defense a chance to consistently compete with it's athleticism, toughness and pride. Because we're not lacking in guys who can win if given the chance to compete. Hell, even our hobbit DBs have been hitting guys in the mouth pretty solid (this is not Hall, or Hall vs Wilson argument starter, leave it). And that's really the only group you should have to compensate for, having spent a good bit of time and resources on the front seven. So figure it the eff out JHaz.

In terms of the talent issues, It's mostly the safety play. We basically have the same corners as last year. Look at the results we had last year. The difference is that we had a former pro bowler at FS and a quality SS in landry last year. Now we have the backup's backups starting for us at those positions and they are frequently out of position. There are some scheme issues there too in certain situations but the biggest problem is FS/SS.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

on the gano note: anyone who has attended a redskins practice, or seen a redskins practice,
did gano ever practice kicking over the "wall", roughly 12 ft tall and about 8 yds in front of the kick?

I agree. While I'm not a huge Haslett fan I don't think anyone would be able to make our secondary look like all-stars.

For everyone that was crying about play calling on offense last year, how's it look now that we have a QB that can run pretty much anything you ask him to? No amount of scheme was able to cover up the glaring lack of talent at QB, and we're seeing the same thing now in the secondary. If you don't have the horses you can't win the race. Simple.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

I don't think many DCs could come to the Skins and turn this defense into a top 5/top 10 in the league. This defense has a LOT of holes and needs talent period. However, I feel that our current DC doesn't do a good job at adjusting and compensating for those deficiencies. I've seen people that know a hell of a lot more football on Twitter talk about Haslett's inability to adjust.

In comparing both units, up until last year, the defense has always had the better players. And upon MS' arrival, the team spent picks/money on defensive players. Losing Orakpo and Carriker has been a HUGE blow to the defense, but some of the issues that we are having on defense have to do a lot with coaching.

Re: Should Billy Cundiff still be cut!

Who was the 8 year vet kicker and who was the 4th year kicker playing on Sunday? Shanny hand picked this guy, he can't admit he is wrong yet. We will need to lose a game for it to be justified With our defensive woes, a kicker is not going to keep us close for the next couple of weeks anyway.

Great idea, one that I have thought of already as well. Shanny would never go for this idea, he has to have a "yes" man on his coaching staff and he couldn't tame Ryan.

Cundiff needs to be cut at half time. Time for Gano to return.

Time for a new kicker and time for our f*cking offense to stop stalling in the opponents territory and settling for FGs.

That third down should have been converted and no fg try even needed. that said, Cundiff needs to make it when he is on the field.
