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?
If you have more than one linebacker that has the ability to get to the QB, then the 3-4 is an advantage, because until the ball is snapped, you don't know which 4 players are rushing.

By the same token, if you don't have linebackers who can get pressure with just rushing 4 people, then the 4-3 has the advantage.

The 3-4 works if you have a talented core of linebackers than can get pressure when called upon, and also cover when called upon.

Too much has been made of scheme, and not nearly enough of talent.
