Getting to know the Jim Johnson 4-3

Connor is perfect for the middle linebacker position in my opinion and he played very well in his time there this year. He was our most effective blitzing line backer, along with Anderson (Beason isn't a good blitzer) and gets great penetration in the run game. A true down hill running linebacker.

Beason is perfect for any position that demands aggressively pursuing the ball carrier, side line to side line running and man coverage (not so hot in zone imo). If he has someone sweeping up in case his aggression is exploited then is just about an ideal linebacker, however this year teams exploited him and his aggressive instincts.

I honestly felt we had the best balance with Beason, Connor, Anderson for our scheme this year. Reading what you dug up does force us to consider who is really ideal for that kind of scheme and where do they fit. I think we need to try to re-sign Anderson as he would be pretty much a shoe in for either OLB position, I think TD only fits in the WLB.

Fairly would be perfect for the UT position, who played that position for the Eagles during JJ's time? And more recently? Just wondering what kind of player they traditionally looked for.

Zone corners. Should allow Munnerlyn to keep his place. Not sure it's really worth Gamble, as he isn't a big 'tackler'. However the Eagles did go out and pursue Asante...

Johnson and Trent Cole are so similar it's scary. Cole was about the only guy who was better than Johnson in both facets of the game, CJ could have the perfect scheme drawn up for him...

^^^^^Peppers could have been great in any Defense.

I dont think Beason will mind putting on some weight if he needs to.

I mean, he has already switched positions and switched back for the team.

There is still going to be a tremendous amount of players being added to the camp roster, probably a lot of cuts from the eagles team, especially if they change up their Defense.

Im not worried about our LB position. Im worried about the CB and Dt position more now that I look at this defense more closely.

Yea after reading this it makes me think we will make a strong push for ngata. He would be the perfect fit for NT or UT.

Stranger things have happened and let's face it. He's a FA so he can speak to anyone. Its going to be hard to tag him also because of the cba.

also remember this. since like u said about the cba the draft is happening for sure. Haloti Ngata is not for sure. Thus Fairley will be the pick ending any Ngata speculation.

ray lewis would go off the deep end if they let ngata get away. i think we try to find two dt's in this draft

Um not really. No way Fairly could play the NT roll. We will still need a NT No matter what.
