i bet you thought i had an answer...but i don't. it's a question.

is cam really better against 3-4 defenses? how much better is he against them than 4-3?

it just seems interesting to me that the saints are wanting to make a move to the 3-4 and i wonder if they are seeing something that i'm not.

thanks.

why does the saints switching to the 3-4 have to have anything to do with cam newton?

because we have to play them twice a year?

Didn't GB play a 3-4 when we lost to them last year? Cam played well in that game. Does AZ play a 3-4? Denver plays a 4-3 but its a very weird 4-3 because Von is an OLB that is a pass rusher in a 4-3. Our Oline forgot to show up that day so Cam got murdered against that D, but again it's an offshoot 4-3, not a 3-4.

Let's see here.

Cam has faced the following 3-4 teams this year:

Dallas
Kansas City
San Diego

So 1-2 for 2012

Did Denver run 3-4 this year?

2011 he faced:

Arizona
Green Bay
Houston

Once again. 1-2 for 2011

2-4 en total. So...his record against 3-4 teams is about as mediocre as his entire record as an NFL QB. Has more to do with the team than him, though.

Meh, these days with so many multiple WR sets, nickel has become most teams' base package. Too much is made about 4-3 vs. 3-4 when you have 5 DBs in the game for so many defensive snaps.

The D choked and the refs fuged us against Dallas. We choked against KC. Smashed on San Diego. poo the bed against Denver, choked against AZ and GB last year, I don't remember the HOU game clearly.

I'd like to see Cam's stats in those games though. I think he played well individually.
