Our new coaching staff..

52 posts in this topic

the 4-3 has worked wonders for us this year, but if our new staff comes in wanting a 3-4 i think we should trade james anderson and jon beason.. then solidify the front 7 with the drafting of Manti T'eo.. a front 7 of hardy, ron, dwan with cj T'eo Keek TD/Alexander is very good. yes early but its a lost season lol. go ahead and say im an idiot but just a thought

A few things:

-The game is won and lost in the trenches

-We clearly saw the effects/deja vu of a line without a decent interior beyond D'wan against a terrible KC team

-On defense, a strong high prospect interior presence is what we need to take the d to a new level. Keep building. We've got Keek, CJ, Hardy, Alexander here for sure imo so keep building from that. Having a consistent d-line and MLB here for years to come could be very smart.

-The question then is where do priorities lie and who is expendable with a new coaching staff...and that answer, no one has (yoda voice)

-This team has a lot of holes and I'll agree switching to a 3-4 doesn't seem likely at all, but its not like it can't happen. You never know in the NFL.

All of this being said, If we're in position for Star or Hankins in this upcoming draft I am ALL for it...Teo though, highly unlikely

We need to scrap this transition idea to a 3-4....

We don't have the personnel. We don't have the cap space. We can't just cut/trade these contract players without some type of cap penalty...

The new GM needs to salvage what we have right now. We are simply not in a position to undergo a defensive scheme change.

3-4 idea is nonsense right now IMO

Normally I'd agree with you, but after seeing the Colts switch to a 3-4 this year, I believe it can be done with ANY team. The colts were less prepared for the 3-4 than we are and they are having a great season. If Freeney can play in a 3-4 than CJ most definitely can.

NT is the biggest player need for a 3-4. He had to be big strong and able to take up the C/G. The whole purpose of the 3-4 is for the NT and DE's to take on the whole Oline and free up the LB's for blitzing and pass rush.

We do not have a line for this at this time. Mayby the LB's but not the Dline. and we have bigger needs than another damn LB. We need Safetys and CB's, Olinemen Like RG and RT.

Lets hope the new staff does not rip apart the team to start over, rather build on whats already here and just fill in the wholes with new blood over the next few season.

Why is everyone forgetting about beason? Before the whole Achilles tear he was easily the second best MLB behind Willis of San fransico. Even if after these 2 injuries he come back 3/4 the player he was that's still an above average linebacker.

Some people will disagree with you about that.

With our team I'd rather follow the Seahawks / Bears defensive model

Freeney and Mathis are smaller than CJ and Hardy. CJ and Hardy are better suited with their hands in the dirt. I hope we stay with the 4-3. No need to make the transition when our defense is a couple of players away from easily being top10. And hopefully the next HC sees that. It's looking like we finally have a fearsome duo at DE since the Pep and Ruck days.

Freeney 6'1" 270lbs, and CJ is 6'2" 275lbs. They are basically the same size.

Hardy could be a 3-tech in a 3-4 scheme.. he is big enough at 290lbs. He gets most of his sacks from the 3-tech spot in our current scheme, it seems.

Both of the Edwards have experience in 3-4 schemes in the NFL. Fua also was a 3-4 NT at Stanford.

Keiser played the 3-4 OLB position at Stanford.. and Applewhite played 3-4 OLB at San Diego.

We'd probably have to draft a guy like Jarvis Jones from Georgia to play OLB..

I don't think we should switch to a 3-4 defense.. but I do think it can be done with a couple more pieces.
