As compared to playing a defense we have 0 personel for ? Ya.

Get eductated.

We have one of the best DEs (If not THE best) in the entire NFL and our pressure was average. If we lose Julius Peppers be prepared to have one of the worst defenses in the league because you will not find a more effective DE in the draft, FA, in trades, not anywhere. So if our 4-3 was that ineffective WITH him...then think about it WITHOUT him. Would you rather wait around until we are one of the worst teams in the league to draft a potential bust to save this defense or would you rather suck it up for one year, change some personnel, and implement a system where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I'm just saying...we had the best DE maybe in the history of the league and we squandered him with an unimaginative defense and now he wants out. Are we prepared to do the same thing yet again?

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.

So are you saying the Beason can't play 3-4 MLB, that TD can't play the outside, that we can't sign a FA OLB? Or you are mentioning what I already said in that we would need to gradually find some DE to play? Because the first three are wrong assumptions and the last one I already said...

I'm not saying this is what we SHOULD do...but it would take the same amount of time to rebound from a switch to the 3-4 as it would to rebound from losing Julius Peppers. Thats the point...

unicar peppers isn't one of he best DEs in the game.

beason and davis would probably be alright. we do not have a single 3-4 d lineman.

this is not difficult. stop making threads.

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.

umm no your wrong, dallas traded a 1, 3,5 for Roy W.

Franchise Peppers and Trade him to an AFC team for a 1st and 2 3rds just like Jared Allen. Lock Gross up NOW.....the o-line was our strength and we need to keep it together and have guys play the same position from one year to the next. The D-line needs an overhaul all the way around and Peppers just disappears way too often. He isn't worth the cap space he is going to command. That's my opinion anyway.....

Name a DE that you would rather have...

I already acknowledged that we don't have a true 3-4 DL but that Maake played 3-4 NT for Baltimore for 4 years...read the whole post.

and ray lewis said he needed a better nt the year maake became a FA, wonder why he wasnt resigned there, hmmmmm?? arguably the greatest 3-4 mlb in the last 20 years says the guy isnt good enough, might hold water.

This is the only article that I can find with regard to the Lewis/Kemo relationship...

Lewis Upset Over Loss of Tackle Kemoeatu

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Maake Kemoeatu stayed out of the headlines when he played in Baltimore. But when the run-stopping defensive tackle left the Ravens to sign a five-year, $23 million free-agent deal with Carolina in the offseason, Ray Lewis was upset.

Cowher isn't coming, Fox isn't leaving, Peppers will be franchised or traded and we are going to stay with the 4-3. Kemo absolutely can play the 3-4 and in fact he plays a 3-4 type role now as a two gap run stopper over the center. Look at the Giants game and tell me he doesn't make a difference.

Other speculation is plain stupid and a waste of time and space.

We don't even need Cowher to come here to switch our philosophy...Mike Tomlin was a 4-3 defensive guy at Minnesota and he has adapted to a 3-4. It doesn't mean Fox has to leave in order for this to work...his defense has not worked the past 2 or 3 seasons and it especially wont work without Peppers.
