Exactly.

I'm amazed that some people are still hung up on the 3-4.

Talent & execution always brings the most out of a scheme.

I don't buy any excuses for him, sorry.

How else am I supposed to interpret that?
Thats like a daycare hiring a child molester than when something bad happens saying well nobody forced the child molester to take the job.

As far as teams switching to the 3-4 every year,so what,thats got nothing to do with the situation as it was back then

We don't have the most physical corners around.

And if you want to play press it helps to have some good safeties behind them, another thing we're lacking.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

Defense was 28th last year in yards, and has 2 rookies starting in the secondary. We had no cap space to do anything. I'm not sure why anyone thought they would even be middle of the pack. Getting back cap space hopefully means more veterans competing for jobs next year.

As Smootsmack pointed out, Haslett was not Shanahan's first or even second choice. Do you think bringing in defensive coordinators is as easy as just running down to your local Walmart to pick one up?

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

the whole 3-4 4-3 debate is so old. Our defense showed last year that with a well running offense, we can win games with them. We upgraded at safety (Rambo >> Merriweather). We sustained on CBs. We aren't going to be a shut down D, our old defenses weren't shut down D's, and several times they gave up game winning drives.

This team as constructed can, and should, be doing better. Only time will tell if they do.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

Bottomline is the defense should be playing better than it is. Everyone is accountable. This defense may have some rookies and some older vets in their last year, but the entire unit is better than its shown on the field so far. Last year run proves that. Haslett needs to do a better job as well, if not he doesnt come back next year fo sho.

Two games into the season. There are 14 more games to go. The defense will improve, as so the offense. Just hang in there guys.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

The Redskins have to score early. I'm confident the Skins can score and will get better offensively. I'm more concerned about the defense. This is the worse defense in the NFL. Receivers are wide open. The tackling is horrendous. The defensive scheme is horrible. I'm not confident this can be turned around quickly. Hasslet's job is on the line.

I know what we said, but you missed my point, which is the 3-4 isn't an excuse, and if Haslett didn't want to run it he wouldn't have taken the job. We have an entirely different team from back then. 4-3 or 3-4 doesn't matter when you're not tackling and not playing sound defense.

Haslett shouldn't be let off the hook just because Shanahan wanted a 3-4 here.

I think Skip turns it into more of a soap opera than it really is.

When you're losing, everything is drama.

When we were on that win streak last year, nobody had anything negative to say.

Well of course I missed the point when you answer with that reply
If you would have replied with that last sentence you just wrote then we would have been in complete agreement
