The gaps and responsibility of a 3-4 LB is different than what our LBs are doing.
Are we going to change out Woodyard as well as Brooking? Woodyard struggles in traffic. If we change out Woodyard and Brooking then we could and probably should be running a 3-4..
Brooking was a ILB in the 3-4 for the last three years with Dallas man and I'm pretty sure he ran it with the Falcons as well.
I think he will retire anyways. We don't need to change all the LB's we just need to add someone that can step up and play his role in the system we run now.
