Re: 3-4 vs. 4-3

One of the most overrated fan debates is the 34 vs 43

Re: 3-4 vs. 4-3

I honestly dont put any stock in "3-4 v 4-3" because we, like the entire league, are in nickel the most. I dont think the coaches on the Skins care about a potential player fitting 3-4 or 4-3 either.

I do wonder if we somewhat misuse edge guys. Sweat, Preston Smith and (to a degree) Ryan Anderson should be hand in dirt players and not hybrid asked to cover the flat or RB out of the back field and definitely under no circumstances asked to cover the slot.

2018 we were in base 34% and nickel 63%.

"11" personnel has been the thing for a few years now. It spreads the ball out, you can get your slot guy covered by a LB sometimes, you can put guys in motion to see how the D shifts, can bring a defender from the LOS and open some run gashes.

Re: 3-4 vs. 4-3

They've been running a lot of 4 man fronts where Sweat and Kerrigan are basically 4-3 ends w/ their hand in the dirt. I really didn't see too many base 3-4's yesterday. So to me it really isn't an issue. The issue is lack of coverage skills and a total lack of a pass rush.

Speed is definitely a concern. Even with the speed guys we have, we have issues.
It's pretty sad that they put in broken down old as dirt DRC over Apke. DRC was literally limping around the field. Apke must be a total bust.

Apke at corner? Hes a project at safety projected to be out of the league in 3.3 years

Apke was a 6th or 7th round flyer. Don't even blame him. He was never going to play up to the level he was picked at.

Went from thinking the defense would be a strength to realizing we're not even close yet and still need way more upgrades.

Re: 3-4 vs. 4-3

But for Miami’s “defense,” we’d be worst in the league. I know it has been only 2 games, but still....

This. In the NFL all teams are multiple front. Yes there is a base look, but the majority of the game is played in sub packages specific to the opponent that week.

A way to look at base is how the defense sets up an offense up; to provide tendencies and then break them.

A good old 4th round pick wasted on him. He is great in Madden though lol

Shameless self-promotion. It is what it is.

What percentage of snaps are you comfortable with Kerrigan or Sweat dropping in coverage?

My answer is zero, none, never ever.

Re: 3-4 vs. 4-3

I would much rather be a single gap defense than a two gap.

When you see our D line at the snap they don't burst forward with their initial step. They extend their arms and read the play.

The cowboys d line crashed into our o line at the snap causing havoc and pressure.

We have talent but I don't think we use it correctly.

Even in Nickle, I don't think they are coached to burst like the cowboys are.
