The Saints play a 3-4. The 3-4 is all about that.



You can do the same thing in a 4-3 set. We just choose not too.

We don't generally need to.

We run a Jim Johnson scheme (i.e. a zone blitz out of a 4-3 alignment) but we're generally able to get pressure with just four, allowing us to drop seven into coverage.

When we do blitz, it's often that double A-gap blitz McDermott likes (Johnson did too) because it's very disruptive and hard to defend.

You don't need to play 3-4 before you blitz. We can do zone blitzes etc

Of course we can but comparing to the 3-4 zone blitzing tendendcy is not exactly fair. The 3-4 has more of that naturally built into it based on simple numbers of it's design.

Apparently, I am the only one that thinks our D isn't that bad.  I'm OK with McD and how he is compensating for a weak backfield.

Isn't it funny how much difference a good coach makes. Ryan was given no chance to win or keep his job at the start of the season. I hate to be negative but look at our coach. No one at the beginning of the season would have said that Jets had more talent than the panthers. And still today I don't believe they have more talent. All comes down to coaching

Have you watched the Jets in the past few years?
