    Very good article. I found the section on how to attack a 3-4 defense was very interesting. The quote from Kerney about how he was getting beat up as an OLB last year when the Falcons were a 3-4 should illustrate why Dan Cody might not be suited well for a 3-4 defense. I was a bit surprised to learn that Minnesota is one of the teams considering switching to a 3-4. It just doesn't seem to me that they have the LBs needed for it. All in all it was a great read.

    Tha'ts a real good 3-4 article Infantrycak. I think it's more than a coincidence that all the 3-4 (or almost all of them) are American Conference
    teams, inarguably the superior circuit in the NFL.

    Just from watching what those 4 linebackers (Bruschi, Johnson, Vrabel, and McGinnest) did to Manning and gang, I'd say that was one of the best advertisements of the 3-4 that I've ever seen.

    I can't believe Dallas is thinking about switching to the 3-4. That's the first I've heard about that one.
