The defense did a great job of stiffening in the red zone, but you are asking for trouble if you count on that as your philosophy. Personally I'd like to see us as a base defense go with Morgan and Jones as DEs Casey and another big body at DT Ayers and Upchurch as OLBers McCarthy at MLBer Finny play the Polamolu role ie lining up a bunch of different places Verner and McCourty at CB Babineaux at safety I would let Ayers and Upchurch play like a 3-4 OLBer being a threat to blitz at anytime and being in place to set the edge against the run. The 2 bigger DTs help protect McCarthy so he can make plays. This would be a tough defense to run on and stopping the run should be our main priority. Once we get a team in an obvious passing down then you can drop out the bigger DT and bring in another CB. Then you truely have a hybrid 3-3 look in which you could slide Jones down inside to DT and then move Ayers or Upchurch as a standup DE and have a standard 4-3 nickle package or Jones could stay at DE and we would have the 3-4 nickle look.
