Mr. Scot

Kyle Bailey suggests defense going 3-4 is an option

Ya know, the switch to 3-4 actually is far-fetched this time...We were going to have to re-haul much of the D anyways. I could see this working well if we can get a few more big bodies for the line. This would actually be a perfect storm for Haynes because he was a 3-4 OLB in college and can't put on the weight to be a 4-3 DE. Interesting to think about. 

Do you mean isn't far fetched ?

I think Addison could do it, he was project as a 3-4 olb in the draft as his best position professionally

Didnt Addison play OLB in college?

Why do ppl keep saying Mario can play OLB in a 3/4?? 

Just because he is about that size doesn't mean he has the skill or the time to develop them..

It's more about Mario's athletic ability and the skill sit that he has. He most certainly can  play OLB in a 3/4.  Why must you be so dismissive?

It certainly is more than just size. 

Every year up until this one, I'm the one of the ones making the argument against switching to a 3/4, because I know that it's so much more than plugging players in. 

What I am saying, if there was a time to.make a transition to the 3/4, the Panthers are better equipped now to make the switch, than they ever have been since the team has been playing the 4-3. 

That statement is true.  

Not saying it would be a seamless transition, but this would be a good time to do it.  It'll arguably be more difficult to stay in a 4-3,  depending how the draft goes.

The Saints scored 12 points on us with all of their starters. Not the best example to use.

So that makes up for the 3 games they scored 30+ on us last year?  I dont think one good game by the defense at home after being terrible all season changes things.

And which of the 2 dopes is going to coach a 3-4 defense.  

"My whole attitude is still making sure I'm training and helping Eric to grow," Rivera said. "He's a terrific coordinator in terms of mapping things out, and with a little more experience he can be a very good play-caller as well."

Doesn't make sense if it's coming from Rivera.  His ass is on the line, so he creates an entirely new defense?  

So if it's an idea coming from Tepper, maybe it was part of the agreement Ron stays?...which I also don't like if Tepper is deciding on what base defense to play.  

 

Could be exciting, but I don't buy it

3-4 looks get achieved all the time by the technique lineup and where the safeties drop,.

there are very few running strict 3-4 or 4-3 base defenses any more.

the need to have 3-4 DB on the field all the time and have DB that are versatile to stop runs and cover better than linebackers has caused that.

having DE that can play DE but then move to the interior or drop into coverage also have caused this.

we play a lot of 3-4 and 5-2 type of looks already. 

I do like some of the 3-4 defensive ends and think one of those or one of the 3-4 OLB would really help us.

short playing more 5 technique may push the pocket more instead of his 3 technique. 

Poe is a nose tackle.

My take is, "Heck, yeah, give it a shot."

The NFCSouth is one of the most competitive divisions in football. All four teams have franchise QBs in place, excellent running backs and some of the finest receivers in the game. And all four have been using 4-3 defenses for decades.

Something needs to radically change to upend the logjam. This kind of thing could be the wrinkle that sets us ahead of the curve, at least for a while.

1. I don't know why some think this would be a Tepper-influenced decision.  I mean... I guess it's possible... but it is far more likely that Rivera, who will be calling the defensive plays this year, sees our personnel as fitting for a 3-4.  It's the best way to get Short and Poe to improve upon their 2018 seasons.  Rivera coached some great 3-4 Chargers defenses.  The reason we stayed a 4-3 when he came here is because he was scheme flexible and knew our talent was a fit for a 4-3.  

2. It's true we don't have any great 3-4 OLBs candidates on the roster, but it isn't like we have any good 4-3 DEs either outside of I guess Addison.  So we'd be in the same position really.

I could actually see us drafting a 3-4 DE and 3-4 outside linebacker and a safety.

that would give us more 3-4/5-2 types of looks and Rivera has shown in the past to be very good at them.

we already run a lot of 3-4/5-2 looks and lineups.
