Default Jax now also playing a 3-4

Given we have not played well aginst 3-4 defenses this is a news item

3-4 replaces 4-3

The Jaguars played a 3-4 defense virtually the whole game, but Del Rio wasn’t ready to say they’re a 3-4 team now or whether they planned that just against the Colts.

“You know how I feel about that kind of question. We do what we can as a football team to put ourselves in a position to make plays,” he said.

New angle for Henderson

Defensive tackle John Henderson played a lot of defensive end in the 3-4. “I kind of like it,” he said. “You get less double teams and there’s more angles.”

Peyton Manning was sacked only once, but Henderson said, “We got pressure on him, but he just made great throws off his back foot.”

Following the season-ending loss of DE Reggie Hayward, the Jaguars will use a 3-4 defense with Atiyyah Ellison at defensive end.
John Henderson will be the other end and impressive rookie Terrance Knighton will be the full-time nose tackle. Quentin Groves and Derrick Harvey are the outside linebackers. The Jags used a lot of this alignment in Week 1 against the Colts, consistently stuffing Joseph Addai and Donald Brown.

I don't think so, the Jags still have a big 335-lb monster in John Henderson and they drafted Groves and Harvey who can play OLB so they might be able to pull it off, however, I think they need good DEs too pull the whole scheme off.
