Some rushers just respond better to having their hand in the dirt. What we do know is that we don't have the rush LBs or NT to justify being in a 3-4 scheme. I blame most of the lacking pass rush on CB cushions, but still, it's clear we don't have stud rush LBs.
We're not dumping the 3-4 this season anyway, so we're just yapping anyway.
You're right, I can't say for sure. Just my opinion from what I've seen of them. Not good enough rushing the passer and would be a liability against the run.
I wouldn't say we know
we don't have a NT for the scheme. See, two can play at that game.
Not dumping the scheme this season, but who knows what will happen next year. Little early for that, though.
Anyway, I think we're all in agreement that we want an elite pass rusher. Pretty rare for forum to be unanimous.
