Folks, its not the 3-4 scheme that is killing us against the run, it's our weak side and middle LB. Sharper is having another great year, but 4 yards down field, and Babin is coming on. Wong will have a better presence on the inside and Peek will add more heart and havoc. The Ravens stop the run, the patriots stop the run, the Falcons stop the run, and the Steelers are the #1 defense in the league and against the run.................ALL RUN THE 3-4 SCHEME. Changes need to be made!
A perfect post, i agree completely, the experiment with wong on the inside during preseason was not used for no reason. The coaches knew this time would come and prepared for it. Its time to use the talent on the team and use the tactics that will show the 3-4 is a great defense when its played correctly. Babin and Peek may not be Vrable or Porter yet, but if they are allowed to play and given the right play calling they could develop into them.
