3-4 defense

27 posts in this topic

I am sure everybody read the article at the beginning of the web site....

I agree that Fox is not a 3-4 guy but lets face that might be the personal we might have next year....

I don't see nobody other then http://www.draftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/de/Tyson-Jackson.php that can replace Peppers in this draft (as poor mens version..).

If we can't lend him, we are in trouble.....

Isn't wiser then use the strengths of the roster

A LBs core of Beason, Davis, O'Connor, Diggs, Johnson can play 3-4, isn't it coach duty to apply a scheme that fits to the roster strengths instead sturdly apply scheme that the team has no personel for it....

Yes you would think so, but We won't change. And what are the chances that Diggs will even be on the team next year?

I like the idea because it's different and I think change would be good. However, it won't happen because we don't really have the personnel for it. In a 3-4 scheme, the DE's are really DT's that play the end. You are supposed to have 3 heavy linemen and 4 solid linebackers. I think on our part we have the linebackers but our linemen are the issue.

Others would say the best approach is to find a system you believe in and then acquire players that fit that system.

It's a "chicken or the egg" argument we discussed in a thread a while back.

It wouldn't take much to get the lineman, we already have Kemoeatu and Brayton and they're both very good at stopping the run and Keomeatu is good at taking up blockers helping our linebackers get to the QB for pass rush situations, we can get the other defensive end either through draft or free agency.

Now the depth is the problem, besides those possible 3 there's no one behind them to fit the role so I see where you're coming from and that's why'd it probably take 2 seasons for it to work out.

yes you are all right but..

Lets say Diggs is gone, it is easier to find a 3-4 LB from the draft then to 280 DE which are really a weak group in this draft.....

We have the Nose tackle with Kameatu, Damione Lewis with 306 pound and Darwin Walker 293 are that wrong side of the scale (even Nick Hayden is not that heavy) and our other DEs Johnson ist 275 and Brayton 283 are better runs stoppers then they are pass rushers....

I don't know, I don't want to see Johnson and and Brayton as our DE in a 4-3 defense, we would have no pressure at QB at all....

With Free Agency and cap it is not easy to get the players you want....

So changing coaches for schemes or coaches adapting their schemes should be easier I think :)

    • A hot steak straight from the grill tastes 1000 times better than any of that stuff to me. I've tried to lie to myself and tell myself it doesn't but it won't work, lol.

    • I like Funchess, but it wasn't that long ago there were huge threads in here about moving KB to TE, trading him or cutting him. I knew throwing in Steve Smith would cause people to compare KB and Smith (not my intention) and not take a real look at how well KB has actually done. I love Benjamin and after two years (one rookie and one post ACL) I think we've seen him dominate enough games to not poo on him as much as we do.

      I want Funchess to take the next step but I sure don't think of him as capable of replacing Benjamin as our top WR. If he gets to that point then god help the defenses we face.

      One note on the lab disappearances last year. He was coming of an ACL injury which normally means your first year back isn't as good. Wes Welker is a guy I remember that had the same injury and came back a bit earlier and wasn't the same after a 10 month rehab. 40 less catches and 500 less yards. KB had 13 months but you could see how well he started and I think he was going too hard too soon. He looked dominant his first two weeks against Denver and SF. After the season Proehl admitted they thought he was ready too soon and that the strength coach who said he wasn't ready was right.

      I'm expecting big things out of KB this year and I'm on his bandwagon already and I really hope the memes have him motivated with a huge chip on his shoulder. I also hope that our new weapons open things up compared to last year where defenses knew we weren't throwing it to our WR3, TE2 and RB. Cover Olsen, KB and Ginn and blitz the rest. Cam didn't stand a chance. I think we may have opened up our WR3 and RB now.

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing.
