It isn't complicated math.
Generally most teams that use the 3-4 still use a 4 man front in nickel. Have you people never watched the Baltimore Ravens and Terrell Suggs?
Nickel makes up 50% of defensive snaps, alone.
Ellis and Glover will get 50% of their snaps in a 4 man set.
Glover will be off the field at what he does worst ... run defense and holding up the point of attack (that's according to his former GM Randy Mueller), and fresh for what he does best ... penetrating gaps and getting pass rush up the middle.
So much handwringing and sweaty palms over nothing.
Despite labeling myself a "realist", no one understands my pain or appreciates my special truth. Stupid world.
