Back in December, former Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher said that former Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was "clueless as a defensive coordinator." Current Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson doesn't feel the same way, but he's happy to have new defensive coordinator Joe Barry on board.

"He brings a new sort of energy to the team," Robinson said of Barry, per the Washington Psot. "He has lit a fire around here."

Barry is bringing in an attacking style approach to the defense, and so far the players has responded very well to it. Robinson will need to improve as both a run defender and in pass coverage in 2015. He could be asked to do more at the second level as Barry aims to utilize his defensive line in an aggressive fashion.
