      Agreed. I'm sure he'll be more aggressive than Blanche but I don't know if he will runa 3/4 or 4/3 base defence (he's done both).

        I had heard that you guys might be going to the 3-4 but I'm not going to pretend to know I don't follow the Skins that much.

        That said from the outside looking in I would think you would be better off running a 4-3.

            it was a rumor that the giants were going after him too, not sure how good he is as a x and o kind of guy but has been highly regarded for his personality in our discussion

              Good hire for a DC. A legit coaching staff seems to be coming together here...get rid of Danny Smith and hire a new ST coach next.

                  Very good hiring. I love hiring former head coaches as coordinators. I think Haslett would have even been an average head coach, so the Redskins' defense should be a lot stouter this coming season. Look at the kind of impact guys like Mike Nolan and Dom Capers had as defensive coordinators this year turning over defenses which hadn't been very good in 2008 but played at a pretty high level in 2009.

                    I hope to hell that they actually play a bit more up close. :)

                      only thing i dont like about going to a 3-4 is its wasting away andres talent.. although he is getting old he had his best season last year and i would hate to see it dimished by a year in a 3-4.


                      RIP, Sean Taylor.

                        theres still been no word that we are moving to a 3-4 only speculation. im torn right now on the switch because i think it could be great for some players (orakpo, gholston, wilson, and all the dbs), im worried about how some others will fit in (haynesworth, jarmon, and andre carter). i think lfb, mcintosh, and blades will acclimate fine inside, although lfb and blades are a bit short for the 3-4 and mcintosh probably needs to add 5 or so more lbs of strength. still, haslett has a history with both 3-4 and 4-3 defenses so at this point im still going to wait for some sort of official announcement before i believe anything.

                        if we do go 3-4, that makes mclain an interesting prospect at #4.

                          For someone who knows more about the 3-4 scheme, why would Haynesworth be a bad fit for NT aside from his horrible conditioning? And if he doesn't play it, who on our team could?

                            I think this is a very nice hire. I'd bet money that you'd stick with the 4-3. I wouldn't even consider a move to the 3-4. It makes no sense at all.

                              To help out Haslett,the skins have brought in lou Spanos from the steelers to coach the linebackers.

                              Would have liked the steeler's Butler,but he just got a promotion to miami def. coach.
                              I'll wait to see what Shanny wants from his defense but the 3-4 is coming into the mix for the skins.

                              Huge games this weekend in the playoffs with the battle between the 3-4 defenses(jets/cowboys/ravens) against the rested 4-3 defenses(colts/vikes/saints).
                              If the jets/cowboys and ravens shut down the potent offenses then there is your food for thought on switching the redskin defense.

                              You dont want to make the playoffs and just be "one and done".
