    Look at the top defenses in the league. Three out of the top six defenses are 4-3.

    Texans
    Cowboys
    Steelers
    Cardinals
    Ravens

    1 Seattle Seahawks
    2 San Francisco 49ers
    3 Houston Texans
    4 Dallas Cowboys
    5 Pittsburgh Steelers


    Those are the leaders as of right now on NFL.com by yards allowed.

    You guys would love Rex, he knows how to get it done. I'm not sure how the Jets lost so much talent but their Oline is horrible, they have no run game, no receivers and then when they lost their best offensive and defensive player for the year, it sealed their fate.

    He took that team to two AFCC in his first three years and he didn't do it with smoke and mirrors. His attacking defense works.

    So only one 4-3 team... exactly my point.

    Literally the only good 4-3 defenses I can even think of are the Bears and Seahawks. Giants... yea - except the only reason they're good is because they have three top 10 DEs. They'd probably be even better as a 3-4 defense.

    So you're the only other person on the board who knows that there isn't some magical affect that standing up that fourth guy has on a defense?

    The name of the game is pressure. Doesn't matter how you get it, but it has to be done. If you get it with four guys like the Giants or Titans when their defenses were tops in the league that's great. If you do it with a zone blitz like the Steelers and Ravens that's great too.

    The fact of the matter is Derrick Morgan isn't very good and Kamerion Wimbley was a bargain bin pickup. Better defensive linemen would make this system look a lot better. Of course I don't think the guys we have are being used very well either, but that's a whole different argument.

    The 4th guy standing brings confusion. Especially if you have 2 OLBs that can blitz as well as cover. The QB doesn't know which side the pressure is coming from. On top of that the size of the three down lineman are a lot different so it gives different match ups. It's not just one single guy standing up. Not that simple at all.

    Mingo has to be dropping this year. He has 1 sack for -2 yards. Against Towson State.

    We have the personnel on the team to make an easy tranisition in the offseason. Like someone else said this just aint working. A big problem has been Morgan's complete lack of pass rush, he is very good against the run though ====== 3-4 DE.
    My vote would be to pick up Star at all costs. A true NT that demands a double team every time is key to the 3-4.

    I would love Rex Ryan as coach, he gets a team fired up.

    I based mine on NFL.com stats whick go by yards allowed, I believe.

    Personally, I prefer the 3-4 but that doesn't mean it's a superior scheme. It's all about the talent, IMO.
