I'm surprised no one has mentioned the different 3-4 looks we showed in Saturdays game

From my count we ran the 3-4 with our first team defense about 5 times.

Edwards was at the NT 3 out of the 5 times we ran it, and Fua was at NT the one time Edwards was on the sideline.

James Anderson lined up at one of the OLB spots each time we showed the 3-4 look, while Hardy & CJ rotated between DE and the other OLB spot, depending on what side JA lined up on.

We gave the below look 3 of 5 times, with one of them being on the goal line when Kuechly made the stop in the backfield.

James Anderson CJ/Edwards/Neblett Greg Hardy

Phillips/Kuechly

And here's the look we gave the other 2 times

Charles Johnson Neblett/Edwards/Hardy James Anderson

Phillips/Kuechly

They didn't notice because 90% of this message board has no idea what a 3-4 looks like. Despite all the tape they watch.

I think we ran it and put Eric Norwood at the OLB and he got destroyed.. Idk if it was the 3-4 though gotta look back at it.

Kieser is very under rated. So is Applewhite. They are both great rotational pieces. I don't know if they can become that other piece for CJ though.

I didn't notice it when I rewatched the first half, I could always identify the four DL.

I was about to type that nobody mentioned it cause it didnt happen.

I could be wrong but I think one of the six people in my living room would have noticed it.

All I know is every team but Carolina seems to be practicing basic blitz packages this preseason....

The first time they ran it was on the Texans first possession after they made a first down.

It was the play were CJ was chasing down Matt Schaub and he threw it away.

Video to follow for those of you in doubt.

This is interesting but not totally surprising. A lot ( I believe most) teams with a 4-3 base defense do not often line up in a 4-3 scheme. I read a statistic that last year the Panthers only lined up in a 4-3 around 45% of the time. I think some of this was due to the inability to find a healthy DT but cant be sure (sarcasm). Point is, I think we can use 3-4 formation and it is interesting to see what the results are but I don't think we are breaking any molds in doing so.
