    New Look Defense

    personally.. i like the 4-3 deffense over the 3-4 much better.. aside from the obvious passing situation, what are the advantages to the 3-4???

    i would assume the 4-3 could defend run much better, and could at least put a man on all the recievers and back...

    somebody want to help me out here with advantages to the 3-4??

    :king:
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    From reading interviews with coaches, and having an idea of strengths of our players, here is the '05 Vikes defense... (provided we don't bring in anyone else)

    LCB:Winfield, FS: Sharper, SS: Chavous, RCB: Smoot

    OLB: Thomas, MLB: Henderson, OLB: Harris

    RDE: Udeze, DTs: P. Williams & K. Williams, LDE: Scott

    But regardless of where they play, we will be a dramaticly improved D-unit.


    This would be our starting lineup right now, according to tice and cottrell. I think we will add one more starter in the draft, with one of the first round picks. It will be either a DE, LB or SS.

    I believe Cotrell said we were not going to a 3-4.
    Coaches do not always say exactly what they are going to do. It would be dumb for Cottrell to say they are definitely going to run the 3-4 next season because then everyone would know where we are going in the draft and free agency. Not to mention next years opponents preparing to play us.

    I'm not saying that we will run the 3-4 next season, but it is definitely a possibility. If we get LB Derrick Johnson in the draft, then I think the possibilites of a 3-4 next season go way up. Just my opinion though.
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    As the Vikes stack thier D-Fense, and they are doing a great job, it seems more and more evident that we are setting ourselves up to play the 3-4 next season. We all know that the key to this defense is a run stopper in the middle(Pat WIlliams), speed at linebacker(Harris and Thomas), cover corners(Winfield and Smoot) who are now the best tandem in the league by the way, and finally Head hunting Safeties(Chavios and Sharper), not to mention the potential with Howard in New Orleans of Darius in Jacksonville possibly becoming Vikings. It could be the best anticipated year since 98, minus that gol 'darnit Kick
    Simply put, our linebackers are too inexperienced and not deep enough to go to a 3-4. You need more solid LB's on a roster to run that DB as they are the key to all the schemes, I really hope this is not in the plans or we will not put enough pressure on QB's and Smoot and Winfield may end up looking average because the opponent will have all-day to wait for an open man.

    I dont think the 3-4 is the way to go our linebackers had problems with the running and the 3-4 would just confuse them more.

    I read somewhere on this site that Cotrell said on KFAN the other day that he was going to run the 4-3.

    Personally I am not a fan of the 3/4 D. IMO the only reason to go to it is if your secondary sucks and you need an extra guy pass defending. And it usually doesn't work because you give up pressure on the QB and unless you have great LB's that can tackle you cant stop the run with it either. This year we have a great secondary and a great 4 man D line. If we get another good LB to go with Harris we will kick some butt with the 4/3 D. :thumbleft:
