Let's do that. For the past 2 years we've had a multiformation defense that ran to the ball regardless, the kind of thing you claim a 43 would let us do.
And when we did, we got killed by counters and traps, plays such as this one, which the Eagles ran with LeSean McCoy.
Further, the more read options we see, the more defenses are going to have to know their assignments and execute, because otherwise, stuff as old as the Redskin's counter trey or the Statue of Liberty play will just kill you.
