Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

Capture

In the press conference following the Redskins’ season opening loss to an Eagles team they were unanimously selected to defeat, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett showed a fiery passion, putting the blame of a frustrating start on himself first.

The defense let Michael Vick look like a caricature of his Madden 2004 self and LeSean McCoy dictated the pace of the game in the opening quarter with a whopping 61 rushing yards.

“Obviously we didn’t play very well in the first half, for a number of different reasons,” Haslett said. “And we played much better in the second half, so that’s probably how I judge it. It doesn’t make a difference whether you were Okie, nickel or whatever, it’s just bottom line we didn’t play very well in the first half.”

Shifting ahead to Sunday’s square off, the Redskins need a repeat performance of Week 11’s dandy day last season when they shut out Nick Foles and Co., allowing a season-low six points.

Haslett said in order to do that though, they’ll need to deal with the pace regardless of how quickly the Eagles try to get to the line of scrimmage.
