didn't baltimore run primarily the 3-4 when they won the superbowl or is that only recently?

I have to say I concur with those who expected more from the Front Office regarding the D-line. Daniels and Griffin have proven to be nothing more than average players, save for Griffin's rookie year which was 4 seasons ago. It's true that somebody massive will have to man the middle in a 3-4. There's just nobody we've got who can handle that on a regular basis.

Still, I must reserve judgement, and give the benefit of the doubt to our much better prepared and experienced coaching staff with this matter.

The only other thing I would mention is the possible need for more inside-type linebackers to the mix. Currently it's only Jeremiah Trotter and Kevin Mitchell. Rumors are starting about Trotter getting the ax on June 1. If that's the case, and Mitchell's the only other LB who has experience in the middle, then the list of needs only expands even more. Maybe Clifton Smith, Chris Clemons, and this Favors guy will suffice.

I believe the Ravens just recently switched to the 3-4 a year or two ago, after Marvin Lewis left and Mike Nolan was hired as D-coordinator.

I'm a 4-3 man myself, but I do like the cover packages in the 3-4.

The 3-4 is best used in my opinion when a team is running split backs & shotguns, or singleback with single or dbl TE formations. The offense never knows who's gonna drop & who's gonna come in on a blitz..?

However, you need a pretty talented DT & Ends to really pull off an effective 3-4.

I see the skins using it, but I don't see them relying on it to much.

We need another linemen for a 3-4. Griffen isnt the guy that could stay inside either, hes not big enough. I am pretty sure we'll stick with the 4-3 and pull out the occasional switcheroo.

I think the Pats used the 3-4 in the SB.
