Many people think the Haslett area wasn't long enough.
And those people are absolutely crazy for thinking that. His defense was putrid here for 3 years and he was 2-10 as the head coach.
I did like certain things about Haslett, though. He had fire and determination, and I don't really hold the defense's woes on his shoulders alone. Jesus Christ wouldn't run a good defense with one good linebacker and one decent d-back. Tinoisamoa has to be the most overrated player on the team, and Tye Hill is a lost cause. Until the Rams improve their linebackers, it won't matter who's running the defense.
Speaking of linebackers, I'd love to see Maualuga from USC taken at #2. He could play ILB, which would allow Witherspoon to return to the OLB position. Right now, a lot of mock drafts have the Rams taking Andre Smith. I'm not a fan of taking an O-Lineman in the first 2 or 3 rounds. I know they're important, but barring an Orlando Pace type player, it's such a roll of the dice, and that's a position that you can build through free-agency.
