    Love this guy. Best out there in doing real analysis. That's why he has been with NFL Films for decades. Hope this takes the "edge" off all this FA talk

    Just my two cents on this, but a 4-3 over/under doesn't look anything like a 1 gap 3-4. I don't recall Spears or Canty/Olshansky ever lining up in the 3 hole when Wade was DC here. Take Greg Cosell literally and that's what he appears to be saying.

    Pretty story, with some fact issues, IMO, all stemming from his deliberate disregard for the differences between the fronts.

    What do you dispute, dmyers? Most people including some TV analysts (former players, coaches, etc) I've heard have said basically what Cosell is here.

    Of course he tailors it to the players he has, so it's not like it's always the same.
