Mr. Scot

Kyle Bailey suggests defense going 3-4 is an option

Recommended Posts



Would completely neuter one of the best defensive players of all time.

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.

The fact our HC and GM are probably in a make or break season I would find it nuts they were totally switch the style of defense we play.

but

The fact they have already told TD they are not bringing him back makes you wonder.  With Luke and Shaq as the MLBs, TD doesn't really fit as an OLB. 

Will be interesting to see what they do with Peppers.  If we kept our base 4-3 another year with him wouldn't be terrible.  Its not there are a lot to choose from.  Even if you draft or sing a FA you could still use him.  At this point in his career I'm not sure if he fits a 3-4 as much.

Same with Poe.  Makes a lot more sense to keep him if we are thinking about switching to 3-4.

Tbh, I've been thinking about it a lot more the last few years...  how aggressive our defense looked in the 3-4 days.  Growing up, I viewed the 4-3 as the ideal defense.  Simple.  Stock.  But, with the evolution of the game, my views on defense have changed...  although the bulk of defense is played out of the sub packages now, when you need to generate pressure and confuse an offense, the 3-4 is the way to go...  you can give multiple looks pre snap and then run something completely different once the ball is snapped.  It just feels more aggressive and intimidating.  And if you look at the recent perennial contenders, the majority run 3-4...  outside of Seattle, I can't think of another recent champion that ran a 4-3. 

And with the turnover required across the defense at this point, and the lack of effectiveness in the 4-3 from the personnel we currently have in the front 7 outside of Luke, I think it's perfectly timed.

IF

We are indeed switching to a 3-4 we will have to draft Defense rounds 1-2

1st: Brian Burns- OLB

2nd: Zach Allen-DE would be a good start

We had two good 3-4 years, 1995 and 1996. The rest of the 3-4 years were bad.

Did Rivera when he played with the Bears was it a 3-4 defense?
