My reaction is that Kubiak needs to turn this season around with the players and coaches he has.

Tampa 2 is a 4-3, cover 2 can be used from any front. So no, I am not asking us to go back to a 3-4.

IMO other than Ryans, we have guys that could play well in the 3-4.

I am looking for a defense that will utilize a 1 gap DT, and the Tampa 2 would. BTW I grew up on the 46 defense and it was a fun to watch.
Doh... in between school and work today i was catching up a bit on the boards and put that up backwards. Been a long day between morning classes and 8 hr work shift. Please allow myself to take my shoe out of my mouth...right...now.

I don't think the problem is with Mario or DeMeco as far as playing the 3-4 is concerned, although I believe that the 4-3 better utilizes their talent. The problem is the waste of Amobi Okoye.

I think Okoye would be a 3-4 DE like Gary Walker. He reminds me of a young Walker when he first joined the Oilers.

My 3-4 would have Cochran, Okam, and Okoye as the down lineman, Mario would become the DeMarcus Ware of our LBs.

Now we would need some more LBs that could play, and they would need to be the larger type, not the shorter type we currently employ.

We have the middle linebacker for the Tampa 2, but we don't have the outside linebackers, or the secondary, which is a huge part of the equation. Diles and Greenwood would get surgically defeated on every play. Xavier Adibi, based on his college play, has the ability to be a Tampa 2 style linebacker. We would also need a better pass rush as the front 4 needs to be able to get pressure alone in a successful Tampa 2. I think we have alot of good players on our defensive line but we need a more explosive, and frankly suitable player than Weaver is on the other side of Mario. Our secondary also doesn't cut it. Tackle missers like CC Brown are back breakers in a Tampa 2.

I'd like to see some form of a cover 2 system here if that's the direction we are going. It's a defense that can be extremely hard to beat if you have the players. You've just got to have the players.

In case you guys didn't know, we run the Tampa 2 at times...

We were in the Tampa 2 on the now infamous Demeco on Hines Ward play...

Yes we do. I reckon most, if not all teams run a version of the Tampa 2 at times.

Yea, everyone runs the cover 2. I don't think we have the players to run it all the time like Tampa does.

Great thing about the Tampa 2 is that you can run it for the majority of the game. As long as you have the players.
