What would you call that defense? Surely we weren't trying to stop the run every time I counted.....we were getting torched through the air. Were those two LB's at the LOS faking a blitz, or maybe one intended to blitz?
Thats what the 3-4 is. 3 down linemen, and two outside edge rushers that are linebackers. Sometimes an OLB will back off into coverage, or he will rush. Thats how a 3-4 works. It eliminates a D-lineman and replaces him with a linebacker.
