Gonna get flamed for this, but I don't give a fug.....

 

When we have Short, Cole, and Star on the field with Davis, Kuechly, Klein, and Beason, then we don't need that 4th DE as much. I smell a 3-4 rotation in the works.......

This thread begs the question why was keiser cut.  I'm unsure what to think about the DE rotation yet.  If you figure he was cut due to being undersized.... and gettle has his things about hogs... then put the remaining guys on a scale and you have your answer

Who do you suppose our 3-4 OLBs will be?

Neither Davis, Kuechly, Klein, nor Beason are built to be 3-4 OLB's.

 

Some people just don't understand the difference in putting 4 good 4-3 LB's on the field and actually having a roster capable of playing a 3-4.

So we can't use a 3-4 on running downs, hence the word rotation? Keeping CJ and Kraken off the field in passing downs is suicidal. But that doesn't mean they have to play on running downs.

 

Besides, ask Mark Sanchez if Davis can get to the QB.

We can (and do) sprinkle in some 3-4 sets.  But, we do not have the personnel to run it more than occasionally.  We would be massively exposed.

Occasionally, yes. We agree there. That's what I mean when I say rotation.

 

See, even tho we are both Panther fans and Huddlers, we can still be agreeable!

 

BTW, my sarcasm button was off just now....

I Wouldn't put it past Ron & McDermott try and put a 3-tech DT out as "DE" in some sets to get 3 big guys on the line

Especially if TD, Luke, and Beast are all healthy with Klein able to play a stay at home Mike.

Applewhite is no longer on the team.  Wish we would have kept him though.

If and when we run 3-4 schemes. All those guys will not be on the field. They bring in Hardy an CJ to play OLBs. The guys you listed are 4-3 guys. And the only one with some pass rush skill is TD.
