    tastywaves, we still have Darrion Scott and i believe Spencer Johnson can play some DE as well, and James as you pointed out.
    Thanks, forgot about Scott. Thought Spencer was out this week.

    Re: Fox NFL Blitz report - the 3-4

    I think the best thing about the 3-4 is that our opponents will never know which defense to prepare for. It would really be nice if we could figure a way to put all the same personel out there for either the 3-4, or the 4-3 at the same time so we could switch back and forth on the line and really screw up the other teams play calling!!

    They would never know which play to stay with.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to slide into it broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming at the top of your lungs......

    Re: Fox NFL Blitz report - the 3-4

    You guys are kidding right? What do we have to lose? Our 4-3 defense was getting torched anyway, if they can play it, let's do it.

    Might make it easier in the linebackers as well, they each have less responsibility in a 3-4, maybe they can play like they're supposed to.

    The 3-4 can work if your nose tackle plays like Pat did all the time. It was fun to watch.
    Isn't that what Pat was use to in Buffalo??

    He played 3-4 didn't he?
    Yeah I think he played both.

    I don't like the 3-4 for our standard defense and you will not get that performance out of Pat all the time.

    If Kevin Williams would play up to expectations then we wouldn't even need to consider it. The only reason we go into 3-4 is because instead of being a good coach Cottrell tries to impress people with his different sets. He's like the Martz of defense. His players go uncoached and are expected to learn his craptastic schemes.

    Our line should be our strength but I personally feel they have underachieved big time so far.

    Re: Fox NFL Blitz report - the 3-4

    Well it is good to know that we waisted a pick on erasmus james then (sarcasm). Is this permanent? Because if it is, then what are we gonna do with an undersized 3-4 DE? I don't know if he is fast enough to play in coverage or standing up. I think Erasmus is gonna be super. But not in a 3-4. So to me, this is good news and bad news. Of course the good news being that the defense played fairly well in the 3-4.

    I doubt you see consistent 3-4.

    Like someone said earlier the more we do it the more other teams plan for it. It will not be effective as much. The only reason it worked so well last week is because of an above average effort from Pat Williams.

    I think if we were 4-1 James would be playing every down almost. Tice can't afford the learning curve and mental lapses right now.
