3-4 or 4-3

Now that we signed Evans does this mean we will use a 4 man front now and ditch the 3-4? His size suggests he needs to lined up with a 4 man front and Balmer and Soap will be moved inside to the nose, any thoughts?
So does Justin Smith's size, but he ended being very productive for us. Yeah, Evans is undersized, but maybe it works out. It's surprising to me too.
3-4

I was gonna say I thought we have been running a 3-4 for the last two seasons.
Haha my bad, you guys know what I meant

I know we switched more to a 4-3 when Sing stepped in but we have the players to switch in the middle of games like we have in the past. I just think now Singletary wants to stabilize a 4 man front for good.

I don't recall this.
make it stop.


or on the other hand maybe we should change the system we have, that we've been drafting for, coaching for, signing free agents for and that our D coordinator is schooled in because we got Demetric Evans.

yeah, that sounds smart

I thought it was just that Sing wanted to blitz with the OLB more often bringing them up to the line presnap? I could be wrong.

we went to a base 3-4 when sing took over, no more funny hybrids or switching to 4-3 and back, which is why our defense was so much better when sing took cover cuz we stayed 3-4
Read my lips: Singletary likes the 3-4.
