Lets assume Beason comes back healthy and there is a good possibility he does, in a 3-4 we would have the ability to play both Beason AND Kuechly in their natural spots. Im not sure if MLB and the 2 middle spots in a 3-4 are really the same.

If they are similar we could potentially have Beason and Kuechly as our backers both playing where they play best, in the middle. With Thomas Davis and James Anderson patrolling the outside. The LB corps would be incredible...get a good NT, one Safety, Corner and with our DE situation so good we could have a top 3 defense just like that folks.

With Cam on offense we would have the most dynamic offense in the NFL too, because Cam IS the most dynamic QB in the NFL. Cheer up everyone, its tough to swallow losing seasons and see a Joe Flacco quarterbacked team win the Super Bowl but come on we have as much talent as anyone else in the league.

Year 3 is when things are supposed to take off. First year of this regime was a surprise, then we got our hopes up too much last year and the team did too, thanks Ryan Kalil. It is this year we find the even keel.

4-3 OLB aren't the same as 3-4 OLB though. They're pretty much DEs right?

Anderson nor Davis fit the mold of a 3-4 OLB.

True, the outside backers in the 3-4 are usually hand in the ground type pass rushers. (Terrell Suggs)

Just saying Anderson-Beason-Kuechly-Davis
Johnson/NT/Hardy

Would be hell for any team to try and run on...and your TE that likes to go up the middle? or TE's (New England) we have Beason and Kuechly for that.

Give up, you are trying WAY too hard.

Johnson and Hardy aren't 3-4 DEs.

Must I bump my 3-4 explanation thread? I've got it right here in my bookmarks for just such an occasion. In fact, I'm going to bump it.

Hardy and CJ would be useless to us in a 34. This has been beaten to death, reborn and beaten to death, all over again.

Hardy has enough weight now as he's shown moving inside on passing downs to play as a 3-4 DE, however you'd severely neutralize his ability to get sacks. CJ would be pretty much useless in a 3-4, and he's our highest paid defender (maybe gamble?).

Hypothetically, why does this thread keep popping up? We just had a top 10 defense when we play the falcons and saints 2x a year. We have one of the best young pairs of 4-3 DEs in the NFL and an over abundance of great 4-3 LBs. Is this all just to keep Beason here? Look before Davis got hurt MANY folks on here were starting to lean toward him being the better between himself and Beason. We don't need him, if he wants to stay he'll make his paycheck worth it, if not we can get a crappy draft pick for him. Uncle Luke will make you forget all about Beason.

Dear lord man - could we sticky a "why we will not transition to a 3-4" thread so this drivel will stop coming up?

Just because you have four good 4-3 backers you do not magically have four good 3-4 backers. Every LB and line spot is different in a 3-4 than a 4-3.

We do not have the personnel to run a 3-4.
We do not have the personnel to run a 3-4.
We do not have the personnel to run a 3-4.

No matter how much hard people try this will not change.

I just don't get it.

while our LB corps may not be ideal for a 3-4, Hardy and Johnson have proven all season that they do well on the inside. Especially on passing downs. Whether you guys want to admit it or not, Rivera is a 3-4 coach. Also this is potentially a rebuilding year and that could mean that Beason, Anderson or Heaven forbid, even Davis could be on his way out. I know all us old heads are used to a Panthers organization that pretty much doesn't change, but this is a new era. Organizations do change unexpectedly and at unexpected times. So get off your high horse.
