This is not about the 3-4 or the 4-3 its about how our New DC will approach the game and how he will use his personnel. Like if we will see more man to man, bump and run, some coverages to cover the lack of talent we might have with our DEs this season, and so on. Or will we still go with the bend but dont break and rush 4 to get pressure like we have done for 7 years.

Hate to sound like a smartass (I'm really not trying to), but it will depend upon who comes to be our defensive coordinator and what sort of new talent we bring in, whether through the draft or free agency.

It's just tough to say what we will do without knowing who our new coordinator will be or how large a role Fox really played in the defense.

This.

If he's well known, respected, and has experience, he and Fox will work together or mayb just maybe Fox will give him full control. If he's some scrub, first-timer, or promotion, Fox will tell him what he wants done and will tell him to formulate a gameplan in that vein. Or they'll just stick with the same exact plan from last season.

Thats what Im kinda worried about cause rushing 4 is not gonna get it done this season. Losing Pep+Weak FA/Draft= Fail if we rush just 4. We are gonna need a hard nose DC that knows what he is doing.

Probably not much. Scheme will be fairly similar, Fox will give an idea for what's wanted and they'll work from there. There have been changes throughout the last seven years, but not many drastic changes in ideal.

It will be a 4-3 scheme that relies on pressure from the front four to be successful. Depending on the players we bring in, the new DC will either look like a genius or a bad hire.

I hope your wrong cause I doubt we will get much pressure with our front 4.

i'd def like to see more jamming from our CBs. i think the 4-3 is fine. its just a matter of being creative with it, but not too complex. Hopefully the new DC doesn't let Fox take over, cuz that's why there are so many coaching positions to begin with. For one man to take on more than one position is ludacris.

What would I like to see.? I want Kemo to continue to occupy the middle and play over the center and take up 2 people. I would like us to get a big fast tackle on the right side in the Jenkins mode (hated to see him go). Then we need to get a FA DE who can hold the edge and get 7 or 8 sacks. I figure Johnson and Brayton colllectively did a good job as a pair on the left side. Lewis makes a great Al Wallace type 6th guy and Walker et all are all decent backups.

It would leave us replacing Peppers and picking up a dominant right tackle to hold the line and get pressure on passing downs. With the trade we should get for him, as well as the cap savings, there is no reason we can't get 2 quality guys who can contribute right away much like Peppers did his first year and Otah did this past season. Rookies can really make a difference with great coaching.

It is really simple. If the defense is in the top 5 and can make stops when it needs to, Fox will be totally hands off. He only gets involved when things aren't going well. He isn't stupid and has lasted this long because he really does know what he is doing. He is the only coach in the NFC South still left. I am totally hopeful that next year is even better.

I do agree with this. We have only heard of Fox helping out for about 2 years now and our D has needed that help.
