Mr. Scot

Kyle Bailey suggests defense going 3-4 is an option

Recommended Posts

Interesting. Definitely seems like there are a lot more OLB pass rush guys out there as prospects than true stud DEs.

DE: short

NT: poe

DE: butler

OLB: rookie

MLB: shaq

MLB: Luke

OLB: FA or someone who can covert on the team

I have a feeling they would try Addison at OLB, he has the size, build and speed to play it.

Makes a ton of sense based on our current personnel. It will be much easier to find new pass rushers as well.

I have to look back at my posts to find where I wen't a little more in depth about a switch.

Just on the surface it doesn't seem to be that crazy of an idea. Also, if they do this, I'd expect them to keep a guy like Peppers on board for one more year. He's excelled in both systems and would be a great mentor.

Obada may be better suited as a stand up pass rusher as well.

And he’s actually done it.

Lets pay an old guy to be a mentor. Great idea

Peppers earned his salary this year. He'd be great to have as a rotational player, which is all he wants to be and all we'd need him to be.

All indications are that Peppers will be following Davis out the door.

i hope with being so close to third all time in sacks that they would bring him back for situational pass rushing.  That being said, as much as I love Pep, the team doesnt owe him this.

That's just pure speculation at this point. I don't think we view Peppers who has 159.5 career sacks the same as we see Thomas Davis who has a clear replacement in Shaq already on the team.

We'll see :)

Pep can go chase records with another team. TD owe this team to come back for vet min and he didnt want to. This team dont owe Pep anything. 

no indication the team offered TD vet min.

It should be an option. Our DL is nearing the need for a complete rebuild. In the meantime, I think Short can play DE in a 3-4 and Poe can play the nose. The edge rushers we can land in free agency and/or the draft should dictate this. Don't tie our hands looking just for prototypical 4-3 DEs. Those guys have become some of the hardest types of players to find.
