WOW!!!! Can we sign Spag to somewhere on the staff no??

Im gonna laugh at that 34 D for NO. They dont even have the fuggn personnel for it. We're in better position to convert to a 34 than they are.

Don't they know you can't just change from a 4-3 to 3-4 in one offseason? And the Jets are changing to a West Coast offense this year.

If they read the Huddle, they would know that these sudden system changes are nearly impossible without sucking for years.

Well you can if you had the wrong personnel in at one or the other...

Either way many teams over the past decade have done this fan appeasement gimmick. A team will have a crappy defense, fans see the Steelers and go LOL WE NEED TO BE A 3-4 TO BE GUD AT THE DEFENSES, then said team with a crappy defense realizes the only fix is to beef up on way more talent than is reasonable to obtain in offseason, swaps to the 3-4 and says to fans: HEY SEE WE ARE MAKING THE ADJUSTMENTS LIKE THE BELL LICK CHECK!

Seriously though every team that is a 4-3 defense and not a dominant defense sees pressure from the fanbase to switch to a 3-4. The funny thing is the really good defenses now are ones that excel in getting pressure in nickel and dime formations and run a semi-hybrid 3-4 and 4-3 defense.

I remember the year (2009) Green Bay brought in Dom Capers and switched to the 3-4 defense. It was hilarious watching them.

What were they thinking they'd suck for years, just ask the Huddle!1!!!!11!!1!!1!!!!

Then they won the Super Bowl the same year.

I guess it can be done.

Holler at me when the saints find guys like clay Matthews, Charles Woodson, BJ raji, and Cullen Jenkins to fit in their new system.

Read some speculation (keyword) that Chip Kelly could be interested. But it seems like 2 DC jobs in 2 years would warrant some pause. Super Bowl or not. I guess we'll all find out in the next few weeks.

You're talking about Spagnuolo or Flajole?

Spags is: An outstanding position coach, a so-so defensive coordinator, and a terrible head coach.

Hey we've got an opening at the LB coaching position, Steve, come on down

2009 draft when the Pack chose to go 3-4 their first two picks were BJ Raji and Clay Mathews.

To continue to think it cant be done is naive at best.
