Haslett Got Them Believing


I think, first of all, Jim is an excellent coach. He was doing a good job as the defensive coordinator there. The players responded to him, and obviously they're responding to him now as the head coach.

When you look at the NFL today, there's so much balance. There's really not that much difference between a team with a good record and a winless team. It usually comes down to a few plays over the course of a game. If you get players to believe and take things one play at a time and not worry about what's happened in the past, you've got a chance.

He's got them believing. He's got them not worrying about history and he's got them moving forward one step at a time. He's doing a good job. The only surprising thing to me is the two teams that he's done it against but, again, that's the nature of the league right now.

Good to hear your perspective, Dan. I grew up in Denver and watched all of your seasons as the coach of the Broncos. I think the Falcons were crazy for letting you go.
