This myth really bothers me.
While the Broncos were using the "3-4", Dumervil was still lining up in pretty much the same technique as he would as the RDE in a 4-3. He was still on the outside of the line (3-4 over front), so there is very little difference in how he was utilized in each scheme. Furthermore, scheme has nothing to do with lining a player up to take advantage of matchups.
