This bullshit. Scapegoat after scapegoat.

Ron Meeks, Joe Adams, Hurney, Brian Murphy, Lafell, now Settle, Graves, and Belin. Who's next?

The cancer is Rivera. Damn! And the man just doesn't know.

Please stop your madness!!!!

Joe Adams was NOT a scapegoat. The guy kept fumbling when given the chance. That is benched because of performance.

Go back to Madden.

I have an awfully difficult time calling Joe Adams a scapegoat.

It's like his mission in life is to drop the ball.

My buddy Magnus reminded me yesterday that Rivera actually wanted to get Bob Babich from the Bears as his LB Coach when he was first hired but wasn't able to. With the Bears staff currently in flux after Lovie Smith's firing, it's a lot more likely that now he can.

And if he does, I actually think people will be pretty happy.

Yes, Warren Belin did a good job with him his rookie year, but Bob Babich has a really good rep as an assistant. The thought of having the guys who's spent the last several years coaching guys like Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs now coaching Kuechly is one that makes me smile.

Unknown if that really is a driving reason for all this, but that's what happened with Ron Meeks/Steve Wilks. So for me, I'll wait to see who Belin is replaced with before I pass judgment.

I wouldn't be mad with this...

Probably means switching between running out of a 4-3 or 3-4 alignment.

To be fair though, we already do that.

Ah I see

Another question then, or more clarification required.

Am I right in thinking 3-4 is 3 line backers and 4 Tackles or Guards and a 4-3 is 4 line backers and 3 on the line? (or vice verca).

4-3

DE - DT - DT - DE

OLB - MLB - OLB

3-4

DE - NG - DE

OLB - ILB - ILB - OLB

To clarify, just in case...

DT = Defensive Tackle

DE = Defensive End

NG = Nose Guard (essentially a very large defensive tackle)

MLB = Middle Linebacker

OLB = Outside Linebacker (usually designated as strong side or weak side linebackers in a 4-3)

ILB = Inside Linebacker

Hope that helps.
