19/33, 231 YDS, 2 TD - SD

15/27, 232 YDS, 3 TD - KC

28/46, 432 YDS, 1 TD, 3 INT - GB

13/23, 149 YDS, 2 TD - Hou

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.

We also beat Washington this year and last. Denver runs a 4-3 base. We're 50% against 3-4. Bet the % is lower against 4-3's. But we've played more of those teams.

I knew I was missing somebody. Gracias.

So...nothing too conclusive, IMO. I think the 3-4 would be more susceptible to the power run game, though. If we get that going next year, the Saints will be easy pickens.

I think the Saints are going 3-4 because the looks are known to confuse quarterbacks presnap reads. The falcons for one have had problems against the 3-4 when it mattered. Plus, we have a quarterback heavy division so switching to the 3-4 makes sense when they have to purge most of their roster anyways.

4-3 or 3-4, it won't matter. the saints just suck at stopping the run.

It's gonna become an interesting discussion here given that the Saints are reportedly looking at Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini as DC options.

Rivera knows all about the 3-4, so that means nothing

Either of those guys would be, good hires for them. They'd still need OLBs for passrush though.

Let me tell you this, the Aints aren't switching to a 34 to just beat Cam twice a year.

Maybe it's not Cam. Maybe the question should ask "how good is our OLINE vs 34 compare to 43?"

oh i know that. i saw a comment some saints fan made that they were switching to a 34 because of cam and the other QBs in the NFCS, but i remembered that he has done well against them and it just got me wondering about how well he does.

They are going to a 3-4 because their 4-3 was never that great and it was terrible last fall. They have a lot of pressure to fix it and changing things up to see if you can get better results makes sense. Doesn't mean it will work but it makes sense. Wonder how much they have for free agents and in dead cap space by releasing veterans who don't fit the scheme.
