Should the Rams retain Haslett? No thanks
Jim Haslett refused to replace players who are not performing because of old allegiances or whatever the case. La Roi Glover is a total joke of a player these days, yet Haslett ran him out there every Sunday.
He stubbornly played Will Witherspoon at MLB, despite the fact that anybody with any football insight could see that the guy was playing out of position. He was getting hammered out there. Now part of this is because of the washed-up Glover playing in front of him, along with the ineffective Adam Carriker.
He sticks with veterans way too long. Y’know, Drew Bennett would probably have still been playing over Donnie Avery if had not gotten hurt. Chavous is another prime example — the guy should have been cut in the offseason last year. What is he seeing that we’re not?
He refused to publicly admonish Incognito after showing up the fans not once, but twice. This for a guy with very limited pass blocking ability.
In short, I don’t like his football judgment, aptitude or management. Incognito should have been suspended or cut. Glover and Chavous should not have made this team.
On top of that, the Rams won two whole games under his leadership after Linehan got the ax. Sorry, Jimmy, that’s just not good enough. And neither was your sorry defense under Linehan.
I hope Mr. Devaney shows Mr. Haslett the door.
