Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

Questions for all:
1) If Suh is available, do we take him? I say yes, best player in draft.
2) What impact will that have on 4-3 v. 3-4?
(I don't see him as a NT)

Playing Suh in a 3-4 would be a complete waste IMO. A BAD idea. I don't see him as a NT either Freddy.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

If we want to switch to a 3-4, we should really wait until next year to do it. we have too many problems with our offense to worry about completely overhauling our defense in the same offseason. i voted for a 4-3/3-4 hybrid. stick with the 4-3 as our base package this year, but incorporate a fair amount of 3-4 to get some of our players more acclimated to it. Any defensive front 7 players we pick up in free agency or the draft this year should be able to fit in both systems.

I answered "other" for the 46. In a way I was joking, because it's hard to pull-off, but in another way I'd like to see us pull it off. It's a dominant run-stopping defense, which in my eyes, should be the first focus for a defense -- but you've gotta be able to stop the pass as well so you need great and fast DBs.

How about the 11 defense. 11 sumo wrestlers knock everyone down the second the ball is snapped.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

I am not sure if it has been mentioned, but G Williams used to run a lot of 3-4 looks on third down and other passing situations.

I could see us using a base 4-3 on running downs and switching to the 3-4 look on obvious passing downs to free up more edge rushing options with Orakpo.

Given his conditioning, Haynesworth is only going to play for 2 downs a series anyway, so you can keep him happy and focused on being disruptive in our 4-3 looks.

Suh won't get past Detroit or Tampa Bay unless he blows out his knee in the combine, commits a crime between now and the draft, or tests positive for all drugs known to man.

Theres only one pure nosetackle in the draft and thats Terrance Cody. It's had to find guys right now in this class that weigh more then 310 pounds on the D-Line.
