i'd be very surprised if the stains are switching to the 3-4 solely to stop Cam

21/37, 233 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT - Dallas

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

24/37, 422 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT - Ari

I think redskins are 3-4 too and he beast mode against them twice

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.
