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."

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.

    • To be fair, I think the defensive system and what we were asking of our DL put us in bad positions along the front 7 all year. Look at the Redskins game where we got torched by Guice all game.       At 0:14 in, you see us in what LOOKS like a 3-4, but if you look closer we have Irvin as a stand up end on the far side, and Mario near side as a stand up. Bradberry is LB depth behind Irvin, so it essentially becomes a 5-3 look with standup ends. Not bad for a 2 TE, singleback set, but it's the roles we're asking guys to play. The DL is slanting to their left gap (towards the boundary, with twins to the field. Presnap showed two TE to the boundary, which might explain this but still...) with the LBs floating back across the grain. It's like we're hoping to confuse blocking angles by doing this if it's a play to the field and give us an advantage if it's to the boundary, but it fails and leads to a huge lane. I never understood slanting your DL to one side or the other on any formation outside of an obvious pass situation because I think you're hurting run responsibilities, and that is what happens. The DL absolutely occupy bodies (their primary responsibility in run responsibility. Don't let guys get second level, maintain your gap), but the LBs (Luke, as I'll explain) are left running into a well blocked belly variation play away from the DL slant. They pull the backside guard to kick out the end man on the line, which ends up being Shaq because he rotates down in the event of a sweep as a corner and rolled down safety are covering the twins. This would give a defensive advantage in the event of outside run, but since it is inside, that pulling guard can come down the line, identify Shaq, kick him out, freeing up the guard to handle McCoy, tackle to handle Addison, and the TE is going to help on Addison to give the tackle leverage to wash him inside, then TE moves up on Luke. Bradberry is last line of defense far side, and he gets caught with dead feet because he sees the run go away from him, but he HAS to be coming downhill in that direction. He doesn't, Guice gets a big gain. If Shaq never rotates down, Luke is roaming free and has a chance to make a play. This is just ONE example. This was seen in nearly every game, or some variation of it. DL slants, guys get pulled out of position, and we're lining up in ways that open us up to be easily blocked. Let's look at another play and see Kyle Love not move his feet properly. 1:00 mark. It's a basic zone concept to the defense's right. 3-4 alignment with Reid playing the weakside inside LB spot. Love is in a 3-tech, MAYBE a hair inside of that. Regardless, what he does here causes an issue and creates the gap. He goes inside his guard. The zone is going outside of him. Guard can literally just stand there with him and not do anything but shield. Tackle runs free to Reid who is waiting, not getting downhill. Luke is unblocked here luckily and saves what would be a bigger run, still costs us about 5-6 yards. If Love is attacking the outside shoulder of his guard, he can feel where that guard is trying to take him and maintain his gap, which would lead to either a) the tackle having to help on him or b) Love being in position to slow or stop the run. And another instance of bad DL leading to bad LB play. 1:11. Nickle with a safety walked up in the box showing blitz. Can't tell the DL personnel, but they're lined up in a 4 man front with the field side being a standup end. Twins to the field, two TE look (trips receiver motioned over presnap to stack on the TE) to the boundary. You have a corner and safety out there. Who gets outside contain here? If you guessed the corner, you'd be right. Nobody tells the far side DE (Addison maybe?). He goes outside. WHOEVER THE HELL is the 3-tech then causes a bigger issue. He stands up on the snap and gets THROWN inside. It's ugly. It's stuff you expect from a middle school DL. What is the play? Zone to the twins. Now, why is the backside the problem? Because Shaq is too good on the play. He recognizes the play, recognizes the nose doing his job, sees play-side A gap open, sees his chance to get a tackle for loss. Great play by Shaq being decisive and honestly taking a good angle. Because that 3-tech gets thrown so easily off the snap, that guard gets a hand on Shaq and opens the cutback lane up for Guice who gets 7 when at best, he should've got back to the line and that's it. It's more and more of the same sort of stuff every game. You get the picture.
