Default Expanded use of the 4-3...beefy

Quote:
4. In the wake of Dumervilís injury, McDaniels said the defense would incorporate some 4-3 looks into its package, and a glimpse was offered Friday, with a four-lineman formation that included nose tackles Ronald Fields and Jamal Williams on the inside. Williams made his training camp debut Sunday, while Fields practiced for the first time in four days. The duo threw their combined 662 pounds around effectively, squelching the run game during the periods they worked together.

Now that's some beef in the middle. Losing Doom still sucks, but I like the sound of a package with these two in the middle.

At least they're working on their short yardage situations. We got killed both ways with that.

Ouch. According to Sirius, there was absolutely no pass rush with the 4-3 today. Erk.

A 4-3 could actually look pretty good

LDE- Bannon, Mcbean
DT1- Fields, Baker
DT2- Williams, Thomas
RDE-Ayers, Green

WOLB- Woodyard
MLB- Williams
SOLB- Haggan

Try running on that.

That would be easy to expose by spreading them out and passing the ball.

Hear, hear.

I really like that front seven... would Ayers have to change his number again though?

I think Ayers is better suited as a 4-3 RDE than a SOLB anyway.

I don't know, man... maybe switch Woodyard so SOLB and Haggan to WOLB. Woodyard is decent in coverage... in fact, he's so decent that if I were Shanahan I would have moved Woodyard to SS his rookie season.

Well they better play good coverage because there will be no pressure with that line up.

If Schobel wants to play in a 4-3 defense, tell him we'll be running some of that this year and bring him in as a pass rusher for the 4-3 alignment. Also, bring him in on passing downs when playing the 3-4, so he can get plenty of action w/o having to learn to cover as a 3-4 OLB.

Why are some making a big deal about using the 4-3? Doesn't every 3-4 team use a lot of 4-3?

thats the 1 good thing about being a 3-4 team. its easier for a 3-4 team to be versatile and run a 4-3. but most 4-3 teams cant run a 3-4 because they dont have the players.

the patriots did this a lot last season. they ran 4-3 pretty much the entire game against us if i remember correctly.
