After this season, when we hopefully change some key coaching positions, perhaps we should consider changing to a 4-3. ALot of people have been hollering for a 4-3 on this board for a long time, and ive always opposed that.. but now that our defense has started yet another season looking flat and ineffective.. and coaching changes seem to be just over the horizon.. perhaps it is time to seriously consider it. Some people claim the 3-4 is better because 3-4 defenses have statistically been at the head of the pack every season. But statistics arent everything, and you cant deny that there have been some very effective and FAST 4-3 defenses over the past few years. If you actually look at superbowls from the last 5 years.. you will see that there have been five 3-4 teams, and five 4-3 teams in the superbowl. If you remove the Patriots (who are a special case) then its five 4-3s and only two 3-4s. Anyway.. the biggest reason that I think we should consider it, is because we are really lacking at linebacker. It seems to me that it would be so much easier if we lined up Peek and Babin at DE, and Payne/Johnson and Smith at DT. Then put Wong, Greenwood, and someone else (Anderson?) at the LB spots. Lets face it... Walker is getting TOO old..really fast. And our LBs are NOT providing a pass rush.. so maybe we should throw Peek and Babin back on the L.O.S. where they played in College and see if that helps them. Obviously any major change like this would have to come after the season is over.. and after the inclusion of a new defensive coordinator and possibly(probably) head coach (cccmmoonnn Monte Kiffen!!!) What is your opinion? Should we switch to a 4-3? When we decided to play the 3-4.. one of the benefits was that so few teams used it thatit gave us that benefit of running an alien defense. That is no longer the case.
