Default You gotta let me know, should Haslett stay or should he go?

The skins had a great run of relatively successful defenses with relatively weak talent.

Until this year.

Do you want him back?

Can't see any justification for Haslett being there next year.

If Marv Lewis goes in Cincy then possibly Mike Zimmer
may become available though he maybe in contention for HC job there.

If there is a more capable 3-4 coordinator out there come the end of the season, I say go for it. I don't blame Haslett exclusively for the monster number of yards given up this season - attempting to enforce a 3-4 D on a 4-3 roster wasn't exclusively his decision. But a good D coach could have achieved better I think.

When the Packers made the switch, they brought in Dom Capers, one of the best there is. I'm not convinced Haslett was Mike's first choice. That said, Mike went through his fair share of coordinators during his last years in Denver with no success at all and may prefer having some stability. Could be important.

One name synonymous with the 3-4 available even as we speak is Wade Phillips. I know people will jump down my throat for even suggesting it, but his best body of work has been as a D-coordinator, not a head coach.

Strangely for someone who hates the Cowboys and never rated Wade Phillips as HC, I actually think this is a good comment.

Only if there is somebody better available.

I'd be in favour of Wade Phillips as DC in DC.

Good post and I agree with it all.

I dont blame Haslett for the short comings of our D this season. Were running a 3-4 scheme with 4-3 personal. Maybe we can asses Haslett when hes got the right personel to run the 3-4 ???

That being said I didnt want Haslett when he came and I dont really want him there now......

I think you have to look at the players at well.

When the pressure is on at the end of our games the Redskins come up short too often on both sides of the football.

Too many times in the last few years we have allowed teams to drive in the last minutes of the game to tie or win the games.
Same goes for the offence.
