    Another player in the FA bidding war for Mario ?
    And does it seem like we are starting to see a new cycle in NFL teams converting from the 3-4 to the 4-3 instead of 4-3 to 3-4 ?

    Yay! One less team to draft 3-4 prospects! :D

    Last year I looked at all the teams by their base defense, and I think it was 17 4-3 and 15 3-4. Nearly an even split either way, but the more 4-3's there are, the better chance the Texans have of snagging good players that fall.

    I was thinking the same thing plus stealing cheap Fa's that fit 34.

    I think other than last season, Buffalo has played both 3-4 and 4-3, or have been switching like every year.

    umm dude sometimes 4-3 teams take a player that played in the 3-4 in college and some how mold him into a 4-3 player or vise versa

    They can play a 10-1, 9-2 or 3-8, they have those players and they'll still suck

    I wouldn't mind that either because that means they won't be drafting any defensive backs :bender:

    A friend of mine who is a Bills fan says that Buffalo is now prepared to give Mario as much money as he wants.
