I am not sure that it is certain that we are switching to a 3-4. Lots of rumors but nothing solid has been said, to my knowledge.
Yeah speculation is a mother......

re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

I'm not sure about the switch with our current personnel but as a scheme I prefer the 3-4 to the 4-3. We've got some pieces that could work (Jarmon, Orakpo, Haynesworth, Blades, McIntosh, Montgomery, Landry) and some that don't fit (Carter, Fletcher) so it's going to be a transition.

I won't be surprised to see us shop Carter for a draft pick since he's not a fit in the 3-4 and he'd bring value.

That is not a bad idea, much as I like Carter.

re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

want's?

Considering our D-line, although talented, is aging. Griffin, Carter, Wynn...

If we keep Rak on the line and not at LB, I like the move. Haynesworth can handle the middle better than anyone. We'll need to add a lot of LB depth though.

London Fletcher is a great football player. I'm pretty sure that he cound transition from 4-3 MLB to 3-4 ILB. What makes you think he would get his ass kicked? The guy still has excellent speed, and hits like a ton of bricks.
