psttt.....he's a DE in a 3-4, not a NT.

This is why I should never post. I thought he played DE, and then moved to NT when they picked up Darius. This makes more sense.

Sorry all. In that case I standby my first post. Thanks for correcting me

in before "you guys can't even get your story straight. half are calling him a DE in a 3-4 while the other is calling him a 5-tech. you don't know nothing!!"

not saying that TCF specifically is going to say that, btw.

One of things I appreciate about coming here is learning more about the more technical aspects of football because many posters on this board have a more in-depth understanding of the game than I do.

So for those who want to read more about the difference between a 3 Tech and a DT. Here's a decent breakdown of the difference if you weren't aware.

http://football.cals...ensiveLine.html

There was a better one posted on this board a while back that had all the gap positions, but I couldn't find it. If anybody has a better one, or wants to add to the explanation, go for it.

Based on what Rivera said, clearly he views D Edwards as a 3 Tech, so R Edwards and Fua will be our NTs.

Rivera on D Edwards (credit panther4life for finding the quote):

"I think Dwan Edwards gives us something we've been looking for and didn't see in training camp and thats a dominant force at the 3 tech. We had a couple guys that were young and learning and trying to devlop in and trying to come back from situatiions and we didnt see what we were looking for. What Dwan brings is to the table is he's a big physical guy who is exlplosive off the ball and gets vertical push and hes veteran guy that a lot of the guys already know."

You realize that 5tech is the DE position in a 3-4, right? We are saying the same thing except I am using technical terms. Lol.

edit: Oh, I get the sarcasm now.

Having him will also give us a true nose tackle, when we run 3-4 packages

CJ, Edwards, Hardy

With

Davis, Anderson, Beason, Keuchly

Is that better Zod?

Well almost.

If he played NT.

He is an undertackle. a 3tech.

If we did set up for 3-4 it would be more.

Edwards/Edwards/CJ

Davis/Keek/Beason/Applewhite.

But you mean well and I like your enthusiasm.

Getting ron back and signing dwan vastly improves our defensive tackle play. As has been pointed out, they can both play quality snaps when we want to give a 3-4 look. It sucks that mclain didn't develop, but the team will be a lot better with this version of the line.

Article that has to do with the topic.

Marty's responses to some questions were also telling about what they thought about McClain.

We definitely got an upgrade... I'm happy, and no longer confused

To keep the signing of Former Bills player Dwan Edwards in proper perspective.Just remember his release by them was a move that many expected might come given the fact that Edwards was set to earn $3.8 million in base salary this season.

Edwards consistently ran with the second-team defense throughout training camp and pre-season action, but was largely unremarkable in said work.,according to reports.
