Just because we sometimes use a 3-4 doesn't mean we are going to use it as our base formation. Most good defenses run both the 4-3 and 3-4, but what makes them good is their ability in the nickel formation.

Key is all four guys have to be healthy, also another key unsaid is all four must be here! Good chance Beason or Anderson are moved in off season

Well done

Are you insinuating that Beason, Anderson, Keuchly, and Davis would actually make a good set of 3-4 linebackers?

That the assumption made when a team has "four starting quality linebackers", despite the fact that they are 4-3 backers, means that a team can successfully transition said linebackers into a 3-4 scheme, is somehow not retarded?

Can we just highlight this part so everyone sees it...

To be clear, the Panthers aren't going to switch to a full-time 3-4.


To be honest, this story essentially repackages a fair amount of material from a recent Panthers.com article (link)

From what I read and seen on Panthers.com McDermott wants to sprinkle in more 3-4 looks using all of our LBers and different looks out of the 3-4.

http://www.panthers....7f-f3273723df86


"That's a very good question," McDermott said. "When those four are healthy, there's a chance we'll experiment more with that. We've thrown a little bit of it out there, particularly on third down.

"Would we like to do more? Absolutely. How much of it? We'll see."

McDermott doesn't plan to overhaul the base 4-3 scheme that's been in place since he arrived in 2011, but he hopes to use some 3-4 looks in third down situations.

The reason? In addition to allowing four of the defense's better players to see the field at the same time, pressures out of a 3-4 scheme can be more varied and create more confusion for an offense.

"Let's face it, we're all creatures of habit, and offensive linemen are used to looking for jerseys with 90 on them," McDermott said. "When you can hide that fourth and fifth rusher, and those rushers come with a 50 number on, or a 40 number or 20 number at times with our pressure packages, that's where you create problems and confusion."


These are words straight out of McDermott's mouth, how can any of yall dispute this?
