All great feedback - thanks for the posts.
To the points about 4-3 vs 4-2-5 vs, etc, etc. My primary alignment distinction is whether the the players are aligned on the LS or set back as a LB. My reference to Aldon in the 4-3 was because he had his hand in the dirt on the LS like a DE.
But the fact is, the front 7 alignment was all over the place with people like JSmith and even Soap often standing up and slightly back from the LS. Shoot, even in the picture above, my old traditional view is that is a 4-2, but the DEs are really OLBs so that's really a 2-4. LOL!
Holy crap, Fangio is already giving a lot of looks to an OL and protection scheme to consider. This next season should be fun!
Again, thanks for the interesting posts.
