Jim Haslett calls London Fletcher's consecutive-games streak "amazing"

Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, a former NFL linebacker, said he's "amazed" by inside linebacker London Fletcher's durability, among other things.

In fact, Haslett expressed surprise when reporters informed him Thursday that Fletcher, barring unforeseen developments, will appear in his 200th consecutive game Sunday against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.

"Wow. I didn't even know that. Two hundred straight? That's an amazing number for any linebacker," Haslett said. "I think Clay Matthews [Jr.] is the only other one that, I know, played as long and productive as him [Fletcher].

"I'm amazed. I didn't know it was that many. You add the total, the production, and what he's done, to me, that's big time. And that's well fitting for him."

The 13-year veteran has made a smooth transition from being a 4-3 middle linebacker to a 3-4 inside linebacker while continuing to lead as the defensive captain. Fletcher is the "hardest-working guy I've ever been around," Haslett said. "[He's] the smartest linebacker. He understands the game, he's hard working, he can put people in right positions, he can make adjustments in the middle of the game.

"You can tell him something that you want done and he can go and do it right away, where a lot of guys have to see it. A lot of guys have to write it down on the board, they have to visualize it. You can talk to him and he knows exactly what you're trying to do. He's about as good as it gets."

Maybe if Fletcher keeps making the Pro Bowl in each of his last couple years he'll get some HOF consideration down the line. It affects good character, quiet guys with the recognition, just because he's not as flamboyant as Ray Lewis, I think he's just as good. And for an old man, he can still go from sideline to sideline!

repo..

Kinda misleading though...the reason the Lions have so much money tied into so few players is because they pick so damn high every year. So it's more about the lack of a rookie wage scale than it is fiscal irresponsibility on the Lions' part. If they could win even 7 or 8 games, they wouldn't have that problem.

I hope the NFL remedies that...giving that much money to rookies is a massive mistake and in some ways, I'm sure it contributes to the amount of guys who get the "bust" label. I guarantee you'll see a lot fewer JaMarcus Russells if they get this done...

Good point Brownie..
Its also why the Pats were focused on trades and deals that delivered picks in 2011/12, as far back as 2008.
Now they are stockpiled with multiple early picks (2 1sts, 2 2nds, etc) in a potential rookie salary cap scenario (CBA). Pats get early round talent at a fixed, low price.
Its pays to have your owner (Kraft) on these committee(s) and most likely why you will see this rookie cap getting done prior to the 2011 draft. Otherwise, Kraft cannot afford it (other than trading the picks away). Just more savvy personnel decisions by the low paying Pats...
With any other team and without Brady, Belichick would be the coach (losing record) he was in Cleveland, with Kosar.

You can tell just as much about Haslett's thoughts with what he doesn't say as you can with what he does. He says "smart" and "hardworking" which is what we all love about Fletcher. He doesn't say, "He's a beast up the middle" or "I wish I had three more of him". A lot of you called me out on this a couple of days ago, but I will say it again, "Fletcher won't be with the Redskins next year". For all of his hard work and brains, he doesn't fit in this defense.

monk, I love Fletch as much as anyone up here, but the chances of him even getting a sniff from the HoF are slim and none...he'd have to play at least another 3 years, make the Pro-Bowl in each year, and win at least one SB...and have a key role in winning it. I mean, if Art Monk can have more catches than ANY WR in league history and have to wait almost a decade to get in the HoF, then there really isn't a limit to how badly they can get it wrong...

I base it on what I SEE. I SEE that he's an intense player and makes tons of plays, and he's been playing at a high level for a long time. While Ray is more intimidating, Fletcher goes more on will alone. You should understand when you SEE something, like when you SEE that the fries are golden brown you take them out.

Didn't they just write the same post with Shanahan's quotes? Does anyone at the Post know how to write about FOOTBALL? Contracts, streaks, injury reports, locker room drama, and all that stuff has its place, but I'm looking for more INDEPTH articles about on-field situations. There are too many journalists in this paper, not enough sports writers. No offence, but I knew things were going downhill when an editor (Cindy Boren) started writing articles and doing chats. I guess this is what happens when people stop buying newspapers.

They beat Baltimore and San Diego without Moss and scored 23 points in both games struggle or not they won and there defense is getting better every week.

They are the best run franchise in football maybe in all of sports.

Seymour trade was brilliant he didn't want to be there and he is on the wrong side of his career to get a 1st round pick for him was incredible.

I love Fletcher as a 4-3 middle linebacker, but I am not as enthusiastic about him in the 3-4. This team will continue to collect linebackers that fit better with the 3-4.

They will be able to replace him this year with the pick they got for him, Moss would not be back next year anyway so he will be replaced in the off season.

They are 5-1 when they start missing the playoffs, I will say they are making bad choices until then they are very smart.

I think the biggest story is that RT spot. If Brown is not recovering well from his hip injury, that give us Heyer as the starter.

This team already runs around the left end 26% of its carries, according to stat boy, "and no other NFL team comes close to that number."

It will be interesting to see what kind of creative playcalling Shanny, Jr can come up with to compensate, without being predictable.

Or a Snyder guy. Snyder wanted to draft him, but Marty wanted a tall receiver. Rod Gardner 6'2"! Jets took Santana with the next pick.

Then they split the difference: Taylor Jacobs, 6' 0", neither short nor tall.

Next time around, the Redskins went with tall receivers again: Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelley.

Finally, we really went short: Brandon Banks, 4' 6".

So, on average the receivers we've drafted are average, in height at least. In play, no so much.

------------------------------------------
Yeah, and two weeks ago everyone was ready to throw D. Hall under the bus. Now he has one great game against one very stupid (or stubborn, take your pick) quarterback and everyone is going to annoint him as the second coming of Darrell Green. Take off the media euphoria rose tinted glasses and see things for how they really are for a change.

The bottom line is D. Hall is not a physical corner and C. Rogers is. Rogers will be back because he fits this defense. He can play bump and run, he can blitz the quarterback and he is pretty good out there on an island.

The bottom line with Fletcher is he gets locked into blockers and can't free himself. In rushing the quarterback he doesn't possess the moves to get by blockers. He plays great in space, but what Haslett wants are a bunch of linebackers who do everything well, not guys who do some things very well and other things not so well. This is the whole philosophy around blitzing any linebacker. They all should be able to get to the quarterback.

I'm not hating on these guys at all. I am just saying they don't fit. Haslett has adjusted his game plan to fit them for this season, but it has also limited what he wants to do with this defense. What we will see in the offseason are significant steps toward getting exactly what they need for a 3-4 defense.

Really, Monk811, I-diddled-your-dead-mom jokes and you-work-in-a-fast-food-restaurant jokes are about the level of a 15 year old. And consistent with a guy who can't even type the number of his favorite player. Step up your game, if you can.

Actually, I think they were pretty good, and you just can't think of a decent comeback. Lmao, the best thing you could think of was Ronald McDonald. You're a joke, so as far as I'm concerned, I'll just ITA!

And shouldn't Santana be seen as a Gibbs guy?

Posted by: Devo2 | October 29, 2010 10:06 AM

Or a Snyder guy. Snyder wanted to draft him, but Marty wanted a tall receiver. Rod Gardner 6'2"! Jets took Santana with the next pick.

Then they split the difference: Taylor Jacobs, 6' 0", neither short nor tall.

Next time around, the Redskins went with tall receivers again: Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelley.

Finally, we really went short: Brandon Banks, 4' 6".

So, on average the receivers we've drafted are average, in height at least. In play, no so much.

Makes we wonder if they had Matt Millian on the phone the whole time when grading receivers.

Posted by: monk811 | October 29, 2010 10:40 AM


Not yet...but we will.

Back to RSH...let me see if I have your stance correct here: Shanahan and Haslett will look each other in the eye this offseason, and with a straight face come to the conclusion that because DHall and Fletch have a couple flaws in their game, they should be released and replaced with cyborgs without flaw. Perfect 3-4 manimals, created for the sole purpose of playing lights out defense on every play of every drive in every game. Gotcha.

Seriously, dude...if you can name me even ONE NFL player without a single hole in their game, I'll laugh you right off this blog. Critics said the same stuff about Ray Lewis as you're saying about Fletch right now during some point when the Ravens were down. You know why? They ran a 3-4 without a great line in front of Ray-Ray to keep his jersey clean. Fletch is playing well without guys like Ngata and Kelly Gregg in front of him, so don't talk to me about block shedding.

Point is, you don't throw the baby out with the bathwater...regardless of whether they're perfect prototypes for the 3-4, DHall and Fletch are productive players. That's not even debatable. If Shanahan and Haslett are worth a damn, they'll cater the scheme to them instead of ditching good players with no guarantee of adequately replacing them.

I thought winning would improve this blog's overall quality but now I'm not so sure. Before, we knew what was wrong...now that there aren't epic disasters to discuss, we've got guys trying to ditch the heart of our team like McNabb, Fletch, and DHall. UFB...

I don't think so...she's married to a Canadian white dude, so unless they're cousins who look NOTHING alike, I doubt it.

If you're talking about Michelle Bonner, I disagree...she cleans up good, but she's kinda frumpy and has cankles. Wouldn't be an embarring lay if you got drunk, but certainly nothing I'd seek out with any fervor.

Oddly enough, I'm into Dana Jacobson. She's lost quite a bit of weight and after her little incident with Mike and Mike a few years back, we're well aware of her affinity for Grey Goose...and probably a nice meat popsicle, if you know what I mean...

From a couple of posts back...

Haynesworth's block did not draw a flag on the play. However, Webb was not happy with the hit because his reaction on the field drew an 15-yard personal foul.

He got flagged 15 yards for impersonating a ragdoll?

This game gives me the willies (like every game so far this season). Stafford and Best returing to the game; I don't like it. Playing on field turf and before a bye ... I don't like that either b/c it sounds like a recipe for injuries. What I do like is the idea of Haynesworth getting on the field in obvious passing downs and getting up into Stafford early.

I also like Fletcher, the man, the myth, the legend. RSH: from a few threads back ... Fletcher is better in coverage than McIntosh.

Before you give Vinny any credit for bringing in fletcher or Santana, look at the facts alittle closer...Santana was in contract dispute with the jets. We had L.coles that of 90 catches and one touchdown. Ran the best darn 3 yard pattern of the Joe Gibbs 2.0 era. he also wanted out over money. So we give NY a fourth and coles for santana...I say more gibbs then Vinny since coles complained his way out of town and gibbs didn't want those guys. Fletcher was on Buffalo under Greg Williams until williams got fired. yes he signed with us but I'm sure vinny had to find out about him at one of greg williams sons football games instead of already knowing how consistant he was.....I refuse to give vinny any credit for anything other then running this franchise into the ground. He was told what to do by gibbs or dan and he forever waisted any and all draft picks he ever made. Orakpo picked himself, a friggin no brainer. You cannot give him credit for any first round picks made because those guys are a pretty much known quantity. I remember all the blown 2-7 rounders he never turned into depth like teams like the colts and beagles do every year. Shanny might have drafted three guys this year that he ended up cutting, which i find troubling, but Vinny gone is addition by subtraction in it's purest form. My concern is that this is a trap game, we have played horrible in that dome and that has to give the lions confidence that they can win. We better play much better then we last week because a 4 int. D,hall isn't walking in that door to save six fumbles and 2-3 picks this week. Det is young and hungrey off a bye and we better match their energy or we will get blown out.
HAIL!
