Former Redskins LB on Jim Haslett/London Fletcher feud: It got ugly

http://www.csnwashington.com/redskinsblog/former-redskins-lb-jim-haslett-london-fletcher-feud-it-got-ugly

Quote:
Former Redskins linebacker Marcus Washington talked Thursday about Haslett and the Redskins defense, and while Washington never played for Haslett, he found the immense amount of criticism heaped on the defensive coordinator unwarranted.

"I did hear London's comments on him. Whether it was true or whether it wasn't true, I just think there are better ways to do things like that," Washington said. "That all got ugly. I don't know the history behind it, but it kind of got ugly."

"Hell, I think what he did this year with what he had, it's kind of hard to get a feeling," Washington said. "You lose Orakpo, you lose Cofield who is your nose guard in a 3-4 defense, that's a pretty important position. Then in the backend you lose your Jedi, DeAngelo Hall."


Nice to see an ex-player state the truth in an interview.

I agree, that Haslett didn't have much to work with.

However some things he also did were inexcusable in certain play calls vs Rookie QB's and such.

If he called every game like he did against Romo, he'd probably still have a job.

Plus...it was not just this year. His defenses have been terrible here.

Yea it wasn't a once year thing. Hell, with the rankings of our defenses talent or no talent, a miracle he survived a coaching change.

During his time in DC, he had little to work with each year except 2011 and 2011 happened to be when the D played the best.

Well if it wasn't his fault too, SURELY he would have fielded calls for work, right?

No one is saying it isn't his fault, but at the same time he was given a crap roster to work with from the FO in every year but 2011.

At the end of the day, Marinelli did more with less. No excuses for Haslett.

SIGNIFICANTLY less than Haslett had.

Haslett was a bad defensive coordinator. There's no excuse for him.

He did that with a offense dominating time of possession. Also when our defense played good we did the same. When your defense is on the field less then the defense on the other team that is an advantage for the defense.

Also i have read two stories now from a Marcus Washington interview. This one and about Robert and they both were very honest and clear headed assessments. It's good to hear from Washington. He was a solid player for us and was a high effort guy.

Marinelli also did something no other coach in the nfl has ever done before, coached a nfl team to an 0-16 team, yet Redskins fans blame Barry for that... Confused Haz wasn't even that bad.

Marinelli may be the next in a long line of guys who are "great coordinator, horrible head coach." Haslett cannot even claim the front end of that.
