    I dont understand why we will be switching to a 3-4. like someone posted in another thread, the secondary is the same in the 4-3 and 3-4 defense. Now we need to add a nose tackle, outside linebacker, and maybe even a Devensive end to our many needs this offseason. It seems like a horrible time to make a transition from 4-3 to 3-4 because of the lockout and will probably give Kubiak an excuse for if we dont make the playoffs next season. The players were drafted for a 4-3 and it sucks that some of them might not find a spot in the 3-4 defense. I trust Wade Phillips and i think he knows what hes talking about but i think he said some of the stuff to please Mcnair and may not even believe it himself.

    Did you really expect Wade to come out on his first day on the job and say they need massive changes in defensive player personnel?

    There will be some changes, but not massive wholesale player swap outs and I don't expect him to know who will stay or who will go yet.

    :gun: Really???? I'm not sure what a Devensive end is, but we have devensive ends.... We need two players: A) a big fat assed nose tackle and b) an outside guy (i.e. Von Miller).. Also, I would like to add a secondary guy or two, but I would feel that way no matter what D was run...

    I laugh my ass off at people that say we don't have the personnel to run a 3-4... Well it's disgustingly obvious that we don't have the personnel for a 4-3 defense, either!!!

    Signed,
    30th ranked overall devense!

    Because our 4-3 was so devastatingly good that the NFL forced us to switch?

    An extra LB has a better chance to run them down from behind than an extra DL . :truck:

    The Texans are switching to the 3-4 because that's what you do when you're on the right track.

    There see, makes perfect sense.

    Because we're on the right track, just need a new defense.

    Obviously the Texans suck at drafting d-linemen, but they are pretty good at finding linebackers. So why not reduce the number of starters in our position of weakness and add am extra LB? Makes sense to me.
