Default 3-4?

'The Texans said they will be switching to a 3-4 defense, which Phillips has employed for most of his coaching career.'

Que? I thought we'd do whatever the new guy thought best fit our personnel, apparently that's the 3-4. Is Mario gonna have is hand in the dirt next season or is he gonna be doing his best DWare impression?

Default We are switching to a 3/4

According to Jabba the Hut on 610. So I guess we'll see who was right in the can or cant do it crowd.

I really believe Mario is going to contribute more to this team in a 3/4 than he ever has in the 4/3.

Hand in the dirt.

The gap responsibility is different in Phillips' 3-4.

Texans could be fast and athletic as **** in 2011.

What's funny is that there were people who were in a panic about Bill Cowher coming here because he likes the 3-4, yet people were saying, "We don't have the personell for a 3-4!!!!"

Yet, we're switching anyway.

Life is interesting sometimes.

Looks more and more like we will be drafting Stephen Paea or Marcell Darius in the first round.

Yes. Paea is not exactly a true 3-4 nose tackle. He weighs about 310 but the guy is stronger than an ox. The thing about both of them is that they are very versatile and can play all three d-line positions in the 3-4.

Does Brian Cushing stay at OLB in the 3-4? Or does he move inside to the middle with Demeco Ryans?

I would think he would stay outside. He is pretty darn good at rushing the QB.

Man, they should have taken Clay Matthews. Hopefully they can find quality DT help in later rounds. The Texans have proven that they can't draft the DT position in the 1st round.

Default Re: 3-4?

And what about Connor Barwin? He is very light for a 3-4 DE (254 per ESPN), but he runs well and rushes the passer well. To me he looks like an interesting project as a 3-4 OLB. But since he has never played linebacker before, it is hard to imagine him starting there opening day of the 2011 season. I guess the other option is to trade him.

Barwin was projected to be more of a rush linebacker coming out. Quite a few analysts were surprised when we took him in the 4-3. I think he'll be fine as a 3-4 OLB.
