    I love Haz...Evertime he calls out a player on another team( bout twice a week) that used to play for him, they end up with a big game...

    Any man that cuffs their future with Aaron brooks over Delhomme, Bulger, and Jeff blake is questionable in my book( At one time all were on the Saints roster and they settled on brooks), i guess thats why he was only hired for the defense...

    And it looked like such a good day...

    Re: Haslett Signs As Rams DC

    He'll definately make us tougher...He also seems to be able to judge some defensive talent with what he had in some of his players in N.O. Not my choice, but I will stand behind and support him...

    If not Bates what about Jim Haslett as our DC?


    here was a question I had for AV never really got an answer, what do you think of Haslett.

    I always thought he brought a toughness to his team, something we could use. He was my second choice, I'm just gald we got a very good coach and got it done early. Lets keep moving forward GO RAMS!

    Re: Haslett Signs As Rams DC

    Now that's what I'm talkin bout.

    I like this signing. Fascinating. A one-time hated enemy, is now working for you. Bad blood on the mend, will it work out in the end?

    At least JH has done some dancing and I'm wishing him the best.

    Maybe in a couple, he'll be HC?

    Re: Haslett Signs As Rams DC

    Perhaps he'd like to bring Kyle Turley on as a DE?
    Nice call,heh heh, but I bet he's done. I think I like the Haslett signing. Like some of you I'm getting over my dislike for him too. At this point, anything's better than Marmie. An experienced DC/HC w/ a decent track record. Maybe he'll actually adapt the system to what we have. I hope he can teach these guys how to tackle.

    The personality of this team is changing pretty quick already. I like Haslett on board as our DC. Know where to go but up for that bunch.

    Re: Haslett Signs As Rams DC

    Solid hiring, I've always liked Haslett's intensity. Scott Linehan stayed true to his word so far with his goal to be an attacking, aggressive team on defense and special teams [as well as offense]. Jim Haslett's defensive scheme certainly fits the bill.

    Good point, although I don't know about Little changing positions at this stage in his career. A lot of blitzing will put pressure on our coverage linebackers and secondary [especially our mostly undersized cornerbacks] to produce in one-on-one situations, and with our current roster that's just not going to happen. Once all the right players are in place and familiar with the system, the Blitzburgh approach should be fun to watch.

    Is he going to run the 3-4 [Pittsburgh] or 4-3 [New Orleans]?

As an offensive coach, when you look at defensive coaches and defensive philosophies, the people that create the most problems, in my opinion, are people that play the 4-3 defense, utilize the personnel with the ability to rush four, possibly bring a linebacker or nickel in some of the base blitz-packages. When you get on third down, the creative people on third down get in the 3-4, what I call odd packages, and seemingly blitz from everywhere. That creates more headaches for offenses than anything. The ability to affect the game defensively on third down by being able to make that switch was big in my conversations. That was big in my conversations with Jim, because thatís exactly what his specialty is. Heís really been a 4-3 guy, and they worked toward that defensively when he was at New Orleans, but the third-down packages that they ran and the multiples that they ran were a nightmare for offenses to prepare for, and I really think thatís where you will see it initially.
    Guess that answers it. A base 4-3 defense with the 3-4 thrown in on some third downs. Never heard of that approach - this should be refreshing compared to anything ol' Marmie could come up with [and the soft Cover 2 zone defense]. Linehan sounds like he's got some decent knowledge of the defense, at least enough to know what sorts of things were "nightmares for offenses to prepare for."

    Re: Haslett Signs As Rams DC

    I think it's a good hire and I like his attitude. He'll get this thing turned around.

    As for the scheme, several teams who run a base 4-3, mix in some 3-4 looks and vice versa. I think Belichick does for one, or if he doesn't right now he did.

    We have the personnel for it, just not the depth at LB.

    It can work, and whilst I don't think we'll see Blitzburgh on opening day, I think we'll see a more competitive unit. One worrying thought is whether our cap will give him room to bring more talent in.

    Interesting implications for the draft too............
