Look full disclosure I prefer the 4-3.. That being said... really when you think about can you really say that we run the 3-4 to its FULL effect????
The 3-4 defense is going out of style because teams are going away from the run more and more which makes the 3-4 a bunch of crap. The 3-4 was invented to confuse the offense, which IMO the 9ers don't do. We send the same guys almost every time.
Disagree. teams aren't going away from the run, they get forced too by us. And you want to switch to the 4-3??? We don't have 8 guys who can passrush we have maybe 4 in Justin, Aldon, Brooks and Ray.We be perfect for the heavy pass teams, we can stay 3 downline and hold the point of attack like we did against the packers, and still have enough guys to cover the D and throw in a blitz from a Cb too... I don't think we should mess with the number 1 defense in the league just because you want to watch 4 guys do a wide set and get gashed on the run. Really don't want to go back to the mooch days when we couldn't get off the field on 3rd and short because we couldn't stop the run. Teams use it, most use it more than 55 percent of the time, most teams us the run to set the playaction up, actually all teams do, you need the run in order to throw it's never going to be gone and it's still used more than ever.
