I like the idea of running more of a 3-4 defense. Since we are already thin at the DT position, a single man rotation will help keep this position fresh. We may not have the perfect personnel for it, but it would be a good option to keep our thin DT position less exposed.
Kind of late getting in on the spring game talk as very regrettably I was out of town and missed my first spring game in memory. I heard Medders had a good game and was wondering if he has a realistic chance of contributing, or is it just too crowded at wr as I see he's not in the two deeps. The only thing I know about him is I remember thinking he had good size, decent speed and great hands after seeing his high school highlight video, and was surprised we were getting him as a walk on.
I really can't see the 3-4 working with this group. It takes a more specialized & talented player.
Eh debatable. If anything we should have done it earlier. The teams that started doing it in the NFL were the smart ones taking advantage of the tweener type players. Everyone was drafting 4-3 players and letting guys that didn't fit as well slip. Now that everyone is starting to do the 3-4 some teams are starting to go back to the 4-3 for the same reason.
The 3-4 is easy to run IF you find that NT. That's the hardest part. It's the easiest position to learn, but the hardest to find the body for.
