Default What kind of defense do you like?

Since we are waiting on the new DC to be named, wondering what type of NFL defense system you like the best. Poll on the way

3-4. Just a better overall system. Unfortunately there's not manny coaches that can run it.

It doesn't matter to me as long as the players are put in position to excel. I want a smart aggressive defense that plays fast and physical and gets under the opponents skin. It has to be able to consistently pressure the QB and stop the run.

Aggressive. 4-3, 3-4, hybrid, it doesn't matter. I just like a defense that attacks rather than reacts.

Pretty vague answer.

What defense can our personnel be more aggressive in?

I think our personel if best for a 3-4, whether we run that or not is another story.

If we hire Wade, i think that means Knighton's gone.

Wade's system likes athletic, penetrating DT's.

Fairley would fit if we could get him.

Fairly ain't leaving Detroit, and wade will be just fine with having knighton.

If they buck up the truck for Suh, i dont think they keep both.

If Suh leaves, obviously they have to keep him.

I think suh is looking for a larger market, ie NY or Cali. Suh isn't going to be in the cards for us.

This. With all of the above, one that creates turnovers.

I like a hybrid that is based on the philosophy of aggressive domination including always giving receivers a smack at the line.

I want a defense that allows less points than our offense scores and doesn't go into tortise in his shell mode to "protect the lead"

I want the CBs 10 yards off the line, and below average journeymen backpedaling on the line. Speedy undersized linebackers that celebrate giving up 10 yard runs and then help up the runningback and pat him on the ass.

I want 10 CBs and 1 DT, we'll drop him into a short zone and blitz with the other 10.

I don't have a preference as long as the players match the system and the system is aggressive.
