Tell that to Atlanta, in a 3 year span they went from a 4-3 and were pretty good on defense to a 3-4 and sucked, then back to a 4-3 and had a sack and turnover machine.
Just because you have good players...and you MUST
have them for a scheme to be successful...does not mean they can play in any scheme and do it equally well.
We have no depth at NT, we are still too light at a couple of LB spots and have very questionable depth there and we will be counting on several rookies and UDFA for this to work.
We will be trading a Pro Bowl DT for a scrub LB to get it on the field, which is silly.
Parcells got embarrassed last season and the coach that is too old to coach thugs and hoodlums, too old to lose, is too old to lose not playing his defense.
This force feeding of the 3-4 could bite us in the arse at the worst and even at the best it won't be the magical sack and turnover machine some will lead us to believe.
