Post them here...

For me...if Peppers is gone then the 3-4 should be a real possibility and getting Cowher to run it is best case scenario. I really like John Fox but his "expertise" is with a 4-3 so if Peppers goes then so should Fox.

Trade Pep for his Franchise Tag price (two first round picks). No clue what we would do with the pick this year but that would be for the GM to decide.

If the 3-4 is the way we are going then there is one player that is a FA who would fit it perfectly...Terrell Suggs. If Pep doesn't want to play here then that is fine but maybe Suggs would want to.

- Beason would stick with the MLB and Davis would stick with the other OLB spot.

- We could do one of two things with our second MLB spot to play with Beason...we could either make a run at another FA (James Farrior comes to mind) OR...we could try to plug in Diggs, Seward, or a draft pick. Another option is to move Davis inside to play the other MLB, play Hilee Taylor as a speed rusher on the opposite side of whoever we sign (because we would have to sign someone).

The DL is where it really gets tricky...to stop the run you have to have a HUGE NT and two really fundamentally sound DE. Personally IDK if Kemo is up to playing NT in a 3-4...he gets soft at times but all he would have to do is become and immovable object and he would work. I have no clue what we would do at DE because you can't just move a guy over there from DT and expect it to work...trades would have to be made IMO.

Bottom line is that this is a mess. Would it be interesting to see how it all fit together...sure. But it would take multiple seasons to come together and we would pretty much have to completely change our team to do so.

But this is what trading Julius Peppers would do to us...we would either have to completely rebuild a DL made up of average players (which could take a couple seasons). Or we could switch to a defense where if you have a good scheme the players are interchangeable. The latter reason is why I have always been more of a fan of 3-4 defenses than 4-3 defenses...the freaks of the world are not necessary for success.

I really like everything except nobody is going to give 2 1st round picks for Peppers and John Fox is not going anywhere

we need a young aggressive DC and Pep will sign the contract we laid out for him. and you will see a huge difference in the D. we have the talent, just not a good scheme.

Nobody is even going to give one 1st round pick for him. Teams don't trade 1st rounders for players anymore. Hell even Randy Moss was traded for a 4th.

Someone sure enjoys seeing their name as thread starter. Let's see if we can go for 90 different threads to match his jersey.

I think that there are teams out there that would trade a first this year and then another first rounder next year if they are one player away (or so they think). While I agree with you that Fox probably is not going anywhere...he might as well be gone if Pep is b/c as I said his defense is based on one player.

Also, if they want Pep then that is more than likely what they will have to give up unless there is a way to negotiate around a franchise tag rule.

Nobody is even going to give one 1st round pick for him. Teams don't trade 1st rounders for players anymore. Hell even Randy Moss was traded for a 4th.

Please see the Jared Allen trade of last year then come and talk to me. I don't even put Allen in the same league as Pep with his skill set in the open field...I really think that someone could bite.

So you would rather play a 4-3 without ONE legitimate pass rushing threat? Thats a reallll smart idea...

as far as Randy Moss going for a 4th rounder ? Randy Moss was coming off of two back to back disappointing seasons and looked like he was finished. You can't compare getting a 4th for a guy in that scenario and the current Peppers.

Are you serious? You can't just flip the switch and line guys up in a 3-4. We don't have the right type of Linebackers or defensive linemen for a 3-4. Get a clue.

I'm getting tired of everyone having a hard-on for Cowher.

Aren't there any other coaches who took 14 years to win a superbowl that only coached for one team that already had an established system in place when they were hired that need some dick sucking?
