this is the only guy on the first page in the thread that has the concept of the 3-4 down pat.

someone mentioned you need big DE's to draw double teams. while that would help, its the nose guard that you want to draw the double teams so that the hopefully quicker DE's can be one on one and hopefully get into the backfield along with the linebackers coming off the edge.

in a 3-4 you want the biggest baddest nose guard you can get your hands on.

Third, I'm just giving my opinion based on my knowledge of 3-4 and 4-3 defenses and our current players, I'm not pretending to be an expert and the coaches certainly aren't ringing my phone asking for my opinion. And finally, GENERALLY speaking the ends in 3-4 aren't meant to disrupt from shooting gaps and getting into the backfield therefore SPEED is a less desirable quality in 3-4 DEs than size and strength. 3-4 DE disrupt by holding up blockers and not allowing them to get into the second level.

So you really think even though we have a lack of 4-3 DEs, and the coaches have stated as much that they brought in the 3-4 due to this and to better fit our personnel, that they are NOT going to use the 6 4-3 DTs we have sitting around, but instead continue to use the 2 4-3 DEs that they are really comfortable with? When are Dixon and English going to ever rest then? Can no one grasp this concept just because they can't get past the fact they are called defensive ends? A DE in a 3-4 is NOT the same as a DE in the 4-3, its not that hard to grasp.
We will see in a few hours but I am almost always right about our defense.

2% of people in this thread understand defense aside from the obvious.

Zen is that you again on another account? So you just ignore my statements backed up by sound reasoning and evidence, ignore my question I posed to you and come back with the "you should believe me because I told you so" argument.
