Default Foley and Texans Prevent 3-4 Defense

The January edition of the ESPN magazine has a brief story on Foley.

I quote the following from this article:

"When he (Foley) signed with Houston as a free agent in 2003, Foley thought that he'd thrive in the Texans' 3-4. But Dom Capers' emphasis on the zone blitz meant Foley was stuck in coverage as often as he rushed the passer. Now, since signing as an FA in San Diego last March, Foley has 10 sacks and is finally thriving in an attacking 3-4D. Says Charges GM A J Smith: 'He causes havoc all the time' "
