Ron Rivera, ran a 4-3 in chi town, sticks to the 3-4 in SD.
so because rivera didn't change the defense when he was promoted to d coordinator mid season that means....what?
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.
yeah i remember when tomlin came in to pittsburgh and completely remade their defense, and also brought a defensive coordinator with him and redid the system.
Name a DE that you would rather have...
for a 4-3 only? John Abraham, Usi Umenyiora, Jared Allen, Mario Williams, Aaron Kampman.
if you open it up to 3-4 OLBs that could probably convert, then you add Ware, Suggs, and Merriman
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.
i did. grandiose handwaving doesn't changed the fact he was basically shown the door in Baltimore because he COULDN'T PLAY NT IN THE 3-4 AND NOW YOU WANT TO START HIM THERE JESUS CHRIST YOU WONDER WHY PEOPLE THINK YOU'RE AN IDIOT
