Jay Gruden reached another head coaching milestone Friday at Lucus Oil Stadium.

Gruden addressed a nationwide conglomerate of reporters at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, following the likes of Bill Belichick and Johnny Manziel at the podium for his first turn representing the Washington Redskins in Indianapolis.

The head coach talked about his respect for Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett, how he and Sean McVay will integrate familiar elements of the Redskins offense and whom he sees as Washington’s top priority in free agency.

Haslett: Work Atmosphere Is ‘Awesome’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 17, 2014 – 11:52 am

Haz

The buzz began to build at Redskins Park since Jay Gruden’s first day as head coach  back in January.

In a little more than a month, Gruden has finalized his staff and breathed life into a building bogged down by a 3-13 season.

In an appearance with Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation,” Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett said the last two months of the 2013 season were probably the worst he’s had in three and half decades playing and coaching pro football, but the atmosphere has already shifted under the new regime.

“A couple players came in the other day. They said they could feel it,” Haslett told MichaelRead more »

Timeline: Outside LBs Coach Brian Baker

Football lifer Brian Baker could tell you coaching is the ultimate transient profession.

Before the Redskins announced Baker as the new outside linebackers coach in Washington, the Baltimore native and University of Maryland alumnus coached at four storied universities and seven other NFL clubs.

In the past 30 years, Baker developed multiple Pro Bowlers and studied under some of the game’s preeminent defensive minds.

Let’s examine the highlights in his coaching timeline.   Read more »

Jim Haslett got his turn to commend London Fletcher.

On Thursday, a day after Fletcher announced he would likely retire at the end of the season, the defensive coordinator talked to the media about the inside linebacker’s legendary durability and unparalleled preparation.

Haslett also spoke about how Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo stack up to pass rushers around the league and the positive play of Tony Romo.

Coordinators Talk Week 13, Kansas City

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 3:50 pm

Game manager or not, the Redskins hath not forgotten about quarterback Alex Smith.

Sure he might not pick you apart Peyton Manning style and he tends not to go downfield often, but he’s keen on wearing down opponents mentally to the point where uncharacteristic slipups appear.

He’s also one of the winningest quarterbacks over the last three seasons.

With David Amerson really coming on in recent weeks and Bacarri Rambo regaining some of that training camp swagger that made him a fan favorite, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett talked about his rookie DBs development with the matchup against the former N0. 1 pick looming large.

Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan explained the unit’s balance between pass and run and his strategy between running it with Alfred Morris and telling Robert Griffin III to gain chunks of yardage with his legs.

Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

On Thursday, Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett addressed the media just moments before his unit stepped onto the practice field in the backyard of Redskins Park to focus on exposing weaknesses in the 49ers’ offense and attacking them.

Those deficiencies are few and far between though, so a good week of preparation is paramount heading into Monday night.

Despite a down season, Haslett praised Colin Kapernick on his playing style being similar to that of Robert Griffin III, athleticism and “big”arm.

As for Frank Gore, Haslett described him as a “violent runner” who poses a different threat than anything they have faced this season.

Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 14, 2013 – 12:11 pm

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.

Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

Through the first three weeks of the season, not a whole lot went right for the defense.

They struggled against the Philadelphia Eagles in Chip Kelly’s NFL debut, couldn’t stop Aaron Rodgers from doing whatever he wanted and failed to hold off the Lions in the closing minutes of a back and forth contest.

With Brandon Meriweather back though, the defense will be at full strength for only the third time this season. Jarvis Jenkins and Rob Jackson of course were out the first month of the seasons serving mandated suspensions.

The defense has been fueled by the efforts of DeAngelo Hall, playing perhaps the best football of his career, and he could be lined up against Antonio Gates.

“He has the ability to do anything,” defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said this afternoon. “We put him on big receivers; we put him on quick, faster receivers so he has the ability to do anything.”

Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

Under the microscope, the defense has seen incremental improvement over the last few weeks. That’s not to say they’re where they want to be—not even close—but there has been progression.

While the box score will forever show 41 points given up on Sunday, 14 of those came between a punt returned for touchdown and a drive that started with 1st-and-goal after a Robert Griffin III interception.

Most media questions this week have surrounded Brandon Meriweather, but looking beyond the safety, the defense faces a dubious task in stopping MVP frontrunner Peyton Manning.

With 25 touchdowns to only three interceptions, Manning’s 2013 season is on pace to shatter several longstanding NFL records. With a bevy of weapons to include Wes Welker and the rising Julius Thomas, defenses are not only outmanned, but often dumbfounded by Manning’s at the line audibles. If he sees overcommitment from the defense, he switches to a running play where former first round pick Knowshon Moreno has eight rushing touchdowns.

Anyway, taking a quick breather from nonstop preparation, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett talked with the media about plans for Sunday.
