Rams | Haslett and the defense under the spotlight in 2006
Wed, 10 May 2006 06:15:19 -0700
Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports the St. Louis Rams have totally retooled their defense for 2006 and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett must make the unit produce on the field. The defense sagged to 30th in the 32-team league last season, when the Rams went 6-10. "I think the whole defense has to play better than they played the last couple of years, especially on the run game," Haslett said. "I want our defensive team to be tough-minded and physical. But I also want them to be good (at) technique, smart, and I want them to be good tacklers. And I don't think it was a good tackling football team last year." The defense is looking at seven potential new starters. "The people that we brought in are quality guys," Haslett said. "They're tough individuals, they're tough-minded, they love football, and they're going to be good for this team." Among the holdovers, Haslett said he's detected a determination to pry themselves from near the bottom of the league's statistical standings.
