If we're always rushing 4 guys, then wouldn't that actually make us a 4-3 team?
Not trying to be an ass, just something I've wondered about. What's the difference between a 3-4 & 4-3 defense if we're stilling lining up 4 guys on the LOS most of the time?
No, a blitz is more than 4. The 3-4 works well because you're never sure which OLB is coming pre-snap.
