    I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those things that is either going to look great or be one big suck fest.
    I do not see any middle ground for it as far as it is going to work, but I hoping that it is going to be a great thing for the team to use.

    As it stated, it's situational in obvious running situations.
    It's a smart move, if/when used correctly.

    4-4-3 has its uses.

    If our LBers are good in coverage it would be more useful. From what I have seen in the past it may not be a good idea to try it on anything other then a running situation. Even then you do not know if they are running or not lol. It could be one of those things where they see us in 4-4-3 and audible into a PA pass for a solid gain.

    I'm sure they are just trying everything to see what works.

    You can post the link, they get uptight if you post the whole article due to their # hits taking a hit.

    Re: New Defensive Alignment?

    yeah, something about this was posted yesterday, i think w/ our linebackers it will be pretty interesting to see how it fans out, im kind of excited to see napo, henderson, leber, and greenway in at the sametime, i hope they run it once tonight

    and now's the perfect time to try it out, if we get burnt during preseason then it's no great loss. I'd happily lose every preseason game if it pays dividends during the regular season.
