Jim Haslett: B
While I didn't agree with a handful of his calls today, Jim Haslett seemed to be on his game. His blitzes were well-planned (for the most part) and he did make some adjustments to help limit the Eagles' success on screen passes and check-downs.
Kyle Shanahan: C
There were some questionable calls at crucial times from Kyle Shanahan today. As much as I like the shots downfield, I hate the decisions on 3rd-and-short and I don't like sticking with a certain style of run game when your offensive line is struggling the way the Redskins were today.
As mentioned every week, eyes are still on defensive coordinator Jim Haslett. Regardless of what kind of potential turnaround he may be capable of pulling off, I still don't see him with the organization next season.
However, given the Redskins' current position and an NFC East division that is, in fact, up for grabs, it will be interesting to see what Haslett comes out with today in terms of creativity and blitz packages.
In his third season, currently sitting at 3-6, head coach Mike Shanahan is in the warmest seat he's ever sat in with the Redskins. While I continue to support the coach, his future likely depends on how the Redskins finish up this season and where the momentum rides.
The first step to a successful second half is today against the Eagles.
As we like to say, today's game is a must-win, but this time, not only for the Redskins' miracle playoff chances.
