Zimmer HC and Bowles as DC
3-4 predator > 4-3
Zimmer or Roman will get tha job and i think we will stay a 4-3 defense and throw that Tampa 2 out of tha window and i might hire Roman San Fran offense is sum wat like ours and im sure he can find a QB

Robison is not a 3-4 player... bad signing if we go to a 3-4... now if we signed Ev Griff instead and draft Anthony Barr at 8, then it makes sense...
But Robison is just a terrible fit in a 3-4... just TERRIBLE!
Brian Robison and Everson Griffen, right size for 3-4 OLB? It would appear to be so. Point is only that any new coach could probably find a place for these guys, regardless of 3-4 or 4-3. Assuming, of course, Griffen continues as a Vike.
Robison: 6'3" 259lbs
Griffen: 6'3" 273lbs
A couple of greats:
Kevin Greene: 6'3" 255lbs
James Harrison: 6'0" 275lbs
Current 3-4 OLBs…
AZ - Sam Acho: 6'3" 257lbs
AZ - John Abraham: 6'4" 263lbs
Pitt - Lamarr Woodley: 6'2" 265lbs
Pitt - Jason Worilds: 6'2" 262lbs
Pitt - Jarvis Jones: 6'2" 245lbs
NO - Junior Galette: 6'2" 258lbs
NO - Keyunta Dawson: 6'3" 258lbs
Yes I know Max, most would think that they would be giants out there on the edge, but the numbers prove that they would make a good fit..the smaller'ish Lb's are going to be on the inside. Most need to think of our 4-3 DE's as stand up DE's in a 3-4..both Robison & Griff have the speed. The DT's will still be "down" lineman, just move a little bit to the outside of where they were playing..I see it very possible. BTW MAx, I got your FF payment, THX!!
