    3-4 on the Horizon?

    With all these current linebackers we have, it might not be the worst idea in the world to change to a 3-4. Look at the recent success of teams who have used it: Atlanta, New England, Pittsburgh.... We just might have the personnel to do it. P-Will as the big nose run-stuffer, K-Will at an end and Udeze at the other with Johnstone coming in on 3rd and longs. With Cowart, Henderson, Thomas, Harris, Rod Davis, Raonall Smith, maybe pick up Derrick Johnson in the draft, we could make a switch. Ted Cottrell does have previous experience in the 3-4 with the Jets. A speed rushing end in the draft wouldnt hurt as well, maybe Pollack at 18? This isn't based on a rumor (as far as I know), this is just my opinion.

    3-4 on the Horizon?

    I am all for the 3-4. Anything to make us better. New England runs a 1-10 sometimes. Seriously. They put one defensive line guy on the line and 10 guys play the pass. Usually one more guy blitzes and 9 play the pass. I wish minnesota would try that sometimes. It looks cool and keeps the offense really confused.

    id rather get a derrick johnson and a de in the draft and stick with the 3-4. we actually dont have 4 good lbs. we really only have 2 in harris and cowart. if we took dj and erasmus james in the draft we would be set up perfectly for a 4-3. i doubt kevin williams would be as good at de as he is a dt. big sapp didnt have a great year at de with the raiders this year.

    Adding DJ may be what we need to make the switch to the 3-4. If he's there at #7 it'd be nice to pick him up. We'd have to go receiver at #18 though, and there's some decent receivers who may yet be there when we get to 18.

    New England, Pittsburgh, ohhhh, and Oakland play the 3-4 so its gotta be good. If you don't tackle in the 3-4 you have no more luck than not tackling in the 4-3. If you cover very poorly in the 3-4, its no better than covering very poorly in the 4-3. The scheme isn't what matters. I hope, and also bet, they stay 4-3.

    Pat Williams is not an every down player. We will not run a 3-4. And take K-Will out of his element.
