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.draftcoun...son-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?

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.

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.
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.

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....

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