now im not very knowledgable on the subject, just heard through the grapevine that since we got the DTs Rivera wanted- we would now officially be moving to the 3-4 and putting E.Brown as an OLB.. get his hand out of the dirt and let him play to his strengths..

just what i heard- what do you think?

CJ - Fua - McClain
T.Davis - Conner - Beason - E.Brown

Fixed it for you. Sounds like a good idea.

Norwood would be a better choice in a 3-4 than Brown.

Not sure if I want CJ to be a permanent 3-4 end. I feel like he'd get worn out that way.

Am I the only one that doesn't understand why everyone think Rivera wants to make our defense a 3-4? He had just as much success, if not more, with the 4-3 in Chicago as he did with the 3-4 in San Diego..

why do people think it's a good idea to go 3-4? our entire defense is built around the 4-3. our defense is fine. we've got a d-line with potential, a solid secondary, and a dominant linebackers corp.

changing would set us back a year or two. I'd rather put the time and money into improving our offense than worrying about finding new players that fit the 3-4.

The assumptions people make from (random sources) aka not cited is ridiculous. In his 1st PC Rivera said WE WILL BE A 4-3 DEFENSE, though we would add elements of the 3-4 to mix up our looks.

No idea how a statement from the horses mouth gets twisted so much, so quickly. We got the DT's to fill our 2nd biggest need, it wasn't so we could remake the defense.

Not a chance. Neither our LB corps nor our DL is stocked with 3-4 players. Remember what happened to Beason and the start of the 2009 season without solid DTs in front of him (and him somewhat complaining about it)? Not a 3-4 MLB. Remember Davis being only above-average as a Sam linebacker but fluorishing as a Will? Not a 3-4 OLB. Remember Brayton sucking in Oakland as a 3-4 DE (noted that he sucked last year too)? Not a 3-4 DE.

On top of that, the pass rushing skills that Johnson and Hardy would be completely wasted as 2-gap ends in a base 3-4 scheme. It'll be used as a change-up, but not a base.

There are probably only a couple of players on our roster that would allow us to switch to a 3/4 base D.

The front 7 of a 3/4 D are getting very very hard to find, starting with the NT, and both 5 tech DE's. We have none of those on the roster.
