    It's what's in store 3-4

    [size=13pt]Mark Craig: It's what's in store 3-4[/size]

    Tarvaris Jackson's education continues Sunday when he sees a different look from the Dallas defense.

    By Mark Craig, Star Tribune

    Vikings backup quarterback Kelly Holcomb spent four years in the AFC North, where half the division plays the unconventional defensive scheme that uses three linemen and four linebackers as opposed to four linemen and three linebackers....

    It mentioned that Ware was a DE in college ... so was Anthony Spencer and Greg Ellis has been Dallas' best pass rusher for about 10 years now. Dallas front 7 have been causing havoc all season.

    I am all about the 3-4 D.

    I like it better and I think more defenses succeed compared to the 4-3.


    It's better against the passing game which most teams are focusing on, compared to the running game.

    What would happen to our #1 rush defense if we went to the 3-4?

    The article had an interesting note about that . . .

    "The 3-4 also can be strong against the run. In fact, three of the league's top five run defenses -- No. 3 Baltimore, No. 4 Pittsburgh and No. 5 New England -- use the 3-4. Dallas ranks seventh and San Diego eighth. That will come in handy against the Vikings, who have the No. 1-ranked running attack (170.2)."

    Conversely . . . I wonder how our Passing "D" compares to theirs?

    Just checked the most recent stat's:

    Baltimore - #11 Pass - 205 YPG / #3 Rush - 67 YPG
    Pittsburgh - #2 Pass - 163 YPG / #4 Rush - 73 YPG
    New England - #4 Pass - 179 YPG / #5 Rush - 78 YPG
    Dallas - #24 Pass - 233 YPG / #6 Rush - 80 YPG

    Minnesota - #32 Pass - 288 YPG / #2 Rush - 66 YPG

    I see we slipped to #2 after last week. Titans are #1 by 2.4 yds/game.

    Another interesting nugget I saw that I was unaware of, the Vikings offense has the #1 rushing spot with 170.2 yds/game.

    we took the #1 spot when we had 300+ yards rushing on dem bears!!

    i think before we were in the top 3.

    I think the 3-4 is just a great package all around.


    I am not saying 3-4 all game but mostly 3-4, throw in a little nickle and dime every once and awhile when its 3rd and long.

    Carolina also uses the 3-4 a lot.
