Carolina doesn't have the personel to run a base 3-4 D right now. No one should trying to claim they do....it isn't that simple. That is Madden logic.
They can play some selective 3-4 looks...not much more.
I understand why you shake your head....bc you have no words to explain how guys like Hardy are 3-4 DEs or Ron Edwards can be the NT after he was run out of KC for not being able to handle it. We have a roster full of 4-3 guys. A few could handle it....overall they would be out of place up front in a 3-4.
Im shaking my head because you are going to fight your point no matter how wrong you are proven.
Ron Edwards is a NT and played NT for KC... He is in no way a UT and that should not even be a discussion.
Hardy was more of a jack LB but has beefed up so he is def could be a 3-4 DE. Would some of his talent be wasted? Sure but he could do it.
No one would be out of place because they would fit the base just fine. So would Johnson,Fua, Applewhite,and Alexander.
Oh and LOL at your Madden logic thing because its nothing ground breaking. Teams make the switch from 4-3 to 3-4 all the time in the NFL. Not saying Carolina is because it would be a wast of Hardy and Johnson but if they wanted to they could.
Ok well Im done trying to explain this to you. I understand you will never give up on your ideas no matter how wrong they are.
