    Did you notice the (2010) I put directly after listing their name? Dom Capers ran the 34 to perfection during their playoff run. 34 is tricky because it has to be ran at a very high level, or it will be horribly ineffective. I'd rather have an ineffective 43 than an ineffective 34.

    I noticed that but any defense can be good at times and the packers were annihilated by the 49ers in the playoffs.

    Why is nobody challenging my comment that you don't dabble with different defensive concepts you have to stay with one and make it work?

    Every time somebody starts a thread that pertains to the 3-4 we get cheers and high 5s but how is that automatically good?

    I'm all for a change to a 3-4 but it has to work and the coach doing that would be the same one who has used a 4-3 for the last 2 years. All his career. Much had commented that Grey could not implement major changes at first because of the strike so last year was his first real defense. Like the results?

    If we fail and get a new coaching staff that would be the time for the 3-4. A major change now just makes Grey look confused and how do you sell that to the players?

    Anyway if we take Mingo with our 10th pick and John Jenkins with our 39th pick we are moving to the 3-4.

    I thought this was more about being able to run a little 3-4 not completely switching to it. If you have the personnel to make both defenses well why not do it? If they were talking about entirely abondoning the 4-3 in favor of the 3-4 I'd agree with you.

    Because we've been doing the same sh*t now since before I was even born, and what good has it done?

    We need to be trying different things, but I agree with what you're saying overall.

    The 2008 and 2009 Titans played around with many 3-4 concepts, I really don't see moving back and forth as an issue. The Oakland Raiders used to do this often. And before anyone says "oh great we're trying to be the Oakland Raiders", in 2011 they had the 4th best defense in the league.
