He and his D have to go IMO. 3-4 or 4-3...I don't care...get rid of Meeks.

And what about Thomas Davis? What will happen to him this off-season? I say give the man a highly incentive based contract. The man wants to be a Panther.
He's gone, another knee injury during a contract year.:nonod:

Anyhow, I think TD finds no place in the 3-4 when healthy.
This is one thing I was curious about when I was thinking about us possibly having to make the shift. Would Davis be completely left out as a versatile outside linebacker in a 4-3, or would he be a Bart Scott type of versatile player that does a number of things in certain systems (rush the passer, play the run, coverage, etc.). I honestly don't know what the differences are between the personnel required in various styles of the 3-4 defense.

Running a 3-4 isn't the answer for this team unless there was a major retooling. What people like about the 3-4 is the aggressive blitzing features. You can do that with a 4-3 as well just by adopting a Philly style attacking defense with more man under. That would utilize the same folks we have and provide the pressure and aggressive style we have lacked for years.

We do not have the personnel for this. The only way this could happen would be if we mimicked what Belichick did when he took over the Patriots and found the right journeyman players for our new system. The stars of our team would no longer fit in.
It isn't likely that this change would happen. Especially in a year.
Also Hardy isn't anything at all like a DE in a 3-4. What are you talking about panthers34?
