Default Haslett, Not Slowik New DC

I guess the love affair shanny had with slowik was overblown by our resident camp expert.

That should be an interesting combination. Haslett has a pretty good sized ego of his own.

I can only assume he took a long look at the pieces in place and decided it would be rather silly to switch to a 3-4 when the tables already set... kinda like when McDaniels came in and how he should have left the offense alone.

Probally a hybrid until they can get the right players. It would be dumb to go 3-4 with 60 million tied up in haynesworth.

Or probably walked in and ruthlessly decided to run the defense he is most familar with.

I don't know about that... Haynesworth could be a devistating DE in a 3-4.

But with the hiring of Haslett I highly doubt they go that way.

Are you of all people calling out someone for overblowing something? Serious question because it appears you are taking a shot at Kaylore when you of all people shouldn't.

He ran the 3-4 with the steelers when we beat them in the afc champ game. He knows the system.

Yep looks like he is going to a 3-4... Guess he tried hiring Romeo Crennel first.

Doesnt mean Slowick wont have a job somewhere in the Defense. First smart step by Shanny was not getting him to be DC.

Slowick was a good DB's coach... that will probably be his position.

Yes. That massive high scoring offense that we completely rebuilt with a grand total of two new additions on the starting offense and upgrades at the backup spots.

I know right that juggernaut offense that was top in yards but in the lower half of points scored.

I am still trying to figure out how yards gained add to a score. Because people here talk about how awesome that offense was.

Fact is the offense was lacking in both Shanny AND McD's scheme.

Have you gone to Fan Fair since you got a valuable lesson on manners? And from Cutler of all people too!

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Kaylore was just going off what Shanny himself said.
I would say my experience with Jay was a glimpse into the future and how he handled people. With your feelings on Culter how can you disagree?

My problem with kaylore was simply how he was harping on slowik as the downfall. I would state that Losing Bertrand Berry, Reggie Hayward, Trevor Pryce, The Browncos, Al Wilson,and the final nail Jim Bates wanting fat guys destroyed the interior of the team, not to be recovered for 2 to 3 years. Jim Bates killed Shanny and his job. Slowik was too late in this string of mishaps to be a factor. Being the true fan and expert he says he is, I would hope he could include the entire picture is his assesment

Ok but fact is Kaylore was staunch Shanny supporter until he continued to back Slowick.

Reports said Shanny would maintain Slowick as his DC. Its not like Kaylore is going around overblowing something.

And in your case I pointed out a rare instance to make a point. I also know you were way ahead of the rest of us in your concerns. But dude we all have overblown things. No need to harp on it.

So I edited my post because I made my point.
