Obvious. We bring a young head coach with no head coaching experience. We want to give him all the help to be successful, it makes sense that we don't burden him with having to oversee the defense at the risk of sacrificing some of his time on offense. We want him devoted to offense as he will be calling plays. Haslett has one more year, consider it a transition year for the benefit of Gruden. There's plenty of time to find another defensive coordinator, someone from a strong defensive team, like the seahawks or 49ers. Maybe the panthers. Rome wasn't built in a day.seriously,
Lol I hope so too. Like I said, I could be way off on this. But it just seems odd that if he were the guy, why draw this out a week if it was known from Day 1 he was going to be the guy? Either they want the rest of the staff in here before making the deal or Gruden has had time to watch film and has decided Haslett may not be the best choice.Good point MattyBoh...I hope you're right!
Not sue it's true or not, but I remember hearing on the Junkies a couple weeks ago that during the season Haslett walked into Shanny's office and said either fire me or let me run the defense how I want.I don't have a lot of respect for a guy taking it on the chin and taking all the heat for bad play if he's not truly responsible. Show a backbone and stand up for yourself if that's the case.
