    Re: Fox NFL Blitz report - the 3-4

    The 3-4 is keyed more to speed, both from the DE's and linebackers, which we do have. BUT..... it is very dependent on strong nose gaurd play. We saw that play out of P Will last week. The problem though is he's an older player, and its a long season, and right now, if he goes down, I don't think K Will can step into P Will's place effectively.

    I think we are best off staying with the 4-3, and mixing in the 3-4 from time to time, based on situations.
    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......

    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.

    I think that he can Del, I like phat Pat and think he is our most consistent D lineman right now!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    He has surprised me at times. He has also been innefective at times. I know playing Nose wears on you.

    I just think if they played 3-4 all the time all season he wouldn't be as effective. I like the role he plays now with the 4-3 switching to a 3-4 randomly that's all I was saying.

    Just keep the opponent guessing. Then use predominantly the D thats working best. If that faulters then switch it up.... Keep scheming and attacking. Skol Vikes..

    Aslo, Pat is huge and is probably unable to play at the same intensity over a period of time as a smaller, yet younger player.

    Big boys get tired. :wink:

    The good thing about this season is that we are free to try anything as nothing we can do can hurt us.

    In a 3-4 your line is just taking a block and you have to rely on your LB's a lot more.

    Is this what we want to do?

    Your scaring me :lol:

    I like the 3-4 and the 4-3 then you could even throw in the 3-3-5 and the other team won't know what to plan for.

    The 3-4, like any other defense, is not a true 3-4. That is just the basic set-up and then you have to figure the LB's you move up on the line and such, and off of the line. At times it resembles a 5-2, 6-1, 3-2-6.

    Just depends on the situation.
