Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

The one guy on our team that is a pefect fit for the 3-4 is Rak. He's a perenial pro-bowl type player at 3-4OLB

We don't have the luxury to spend picks on defense and the free agent market is full of fruit thats close to it's due date.

I wouldn't be opposed to a 3-4 hybrid where we gradually transitioned but I don't want to see a full commitment until we get the offense sorted out.
That's why I said "other".

I think I agree with this completely.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

I think we'll stick with a base 4-3 but we'll mix in some 3-4 looks.

If that is true, I am all for it.

If we switch to a 3-4 whole hog, then I am worried.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

People say we dont have the personell for a 3-4....Dont forget we have Montgomery at 330 lbs that can play NT with Griffin & Haynesworth backing him up...

DE Jarmon, Golston, Alexander, Haynesworth...all 280 lbs(+)
ILB Fletcher, Henson, McIntosh,Blades,
OLB Orakpo, Wilson, Carter

All we need to add is an additional 3-4 OLB, through the draft

I doubt he'll last until the 36th pick. So many teams run the 3-4 and he's the perfect NT. He'll get scooped up somewhere in the late teens or early twenties.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

Titans defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch, a quality player in a 4-3 defense, points out the 3-4's effectiveness: "We have used 3-4 front principles where I'm outside the offensive tackle as well as defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, and it does cause hesitation from the blockers." Texans offensive tackle Eric Winston backs Vanden Bosch, saying, "The Titans gave us some trouble when they used that 3-4 look to my side with Haynesworth on me and Jevon Kearse outside of me."

Effectiveness of 3-4 vs. 4-3 is found in the numbers

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

In the poll two people have voted so far for "other." What is the other? An Okie 5-2? A wide tackle 6? A 46? Just curious.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

I've been giving this a lot of thought. Although we don't have the players for a 3-4 IMO I think we should do it. Why? Well we don't have a very good 4-3 defense either. If you're going to do it, then do it now. I know a lot of people say that out defense is good but they haven't played good. They're not the Ravens of old. If we do go to a 3-4 I say draft MT Cody. I'm confident that Shanny-Allen will do what it takes to win in the next few years. For now I'm just going to write off next season as a building year. Honestly how many of these guys are worth it?

I like the formation on NCAA the 4-2-5

yeah, I thought about it more & you're right, there wouldn't be a wholesale personel change needed. We would need LBs as you point out, but that's a need the team went into the last draft with, and still remains today even if we stay in a 4-3. Fletch has 1 year left IMO & the strong side at least needs depth in order to give Rak more DE snaps.

I still hope that we don't go for a 3-4 base, rather Haslett mixes in some 3-4.
