Panthers Switching to 3-4 Defense...

Recommended Posts

DFive    246

.....ummm did I miss something? NFL.com's Michael Lombardi seems to know something that we don't. In his latest article, "32 Questions for 32 Teams Going into Training Camp" he has our question being revolved around us switching to the 3-4.

Carolina Panthers: How will the switch to the 3-4 defense affect their personnel? Do they have enough edge pressure to be successful? Will Charles Johnson be able to handle the edge? Carolina logged just 31 sacks as a team last year, with Johnson notching nine. Who is going to emerge as a rusher and help this defense get off the field? The Panthers were the worst three-and-out defense in the NFL last year.

Discuss...

Here's the article link...http://www.nfl.com/n..._content_stream

Ummm this guy is nuts or just mixed up. Haven't heard nothing from Ron Rivera about switching to a 3-4. Yes Ron might call for a 3-4 set every once in awhile during a game this coming year. But we will remain in 4-3 mainly. This guy has no idea what he is talking about. LOL

That is the first I read anywhere about a switch to 3/4 besides the random Huddle poster with a thread of "Are We Switching to 3/4?"

I'm guessing just a mistake by Lombardi.

We better start trading for some 3-4 personnel, and in a hurry.

Why would Rivera bother to tell the media? That's his business. If Michael has inside info, so be it. Rivera likes the 3-4 so lots of us here knew it could always happen. If anyone can make it work with the roster we have, it's him.

Huh? WTF? Uh? I dont know? ????? All the thoughts that ran through my head at the same time.

We have 4 good linebackers so the media guy just made the leap. Makes perfect sense... Until you start thinking about it 2 seconds later. Spot on for most tv analysts.

I call bull ish on this. The personnel isn't there. Ron Edwards is a NT but he's too old and if he goes down again, I doubt Fua can take that load again. I just don't see it.

When are people going to realize that 4-3 OLBs and 3-4 OLBs are COMPLETELY different players

Never. Never ever.

75% of fans think that 3-4 means to have 4 good LB's playing at the same time.
