    next year. We need ware in a full rush the passer mode and I bet we will get more turnovers in a 4-3 defense. We can get faster linebackers in the 4-3 that can cover. Look at the bears defense and the look at what the patriots did vs the jets.

    Turnovers is the name of the game. We barely force any turnovers. That is why we lost we gave up 3 turnovers and only got 1.

    Lets do like patriots headcoach bill did and move back to the 4-3. We run alot of 4 man rushes anyways.

    I would love the 3-4 but time and time again we seem to not force any turnovers. So lets scrap it and go back to the 4-3. We won superbowls with the 4-3.

    No matter what we need better linemen. Garbage men like Spears have been hanging around for too long.

    I also prefer the 4-3. I think we have a lot pieces in place to run it full time.

    me too. I think we just need one more linebacker that we could probably get in FA or in the second round of the draft.

    Our first rounder should go to oline, safety, or D-line. Unless a bonifide QB is staring us in the face.



    safeties: sensy (draft pick) and church (johnson/draftpick)
    corners: clay, carr,
    linebackers: bruce, Lee, FA/draftpick
    dline: ware, rat, lissy/hatcher, hatcher/crawford/draftpick/FA

    The 3-4 isn't the problem. Many Super Bowls were won with it. The Patriots and Steelers won multiple Super Bowls with it, to name just 2.

    It an non-issue.

    We can't run it for some reason. Many teams have won SB's with it. But Dallas won 5 with the 4-3. I won't mind if the Cowboys go back.

    4-3 - Five Super Bowl wins
    3-4 - One playoff win

    Math makes a suggestion, I think it's time to switch back to a base 4-3, which we're in much of the time anyway.

    Yes please bring the 4-3!Too many times I see Ware and Spencer dropping back into coverage..Not where we need them, in the 4-3 they would be going to the backfield a lot more.

    There are serious problems in this team. Moving to a 4-3 should be around 62 on the priority list

    Could Hatcher be a 4-3 DT? Rat would flourish in the 4-3 but what do we do with Carter?

    3-4 isn't the problem. Our lack of pro-bowl D-lineman and terrible safety play limits this defense.

    The most successful 3-4s are solid all around.

    carter would be beast mode as a weakside backer, heck he probably could play strong side backer too since he is sooo good vs the run and has the speed to match up with TE's.

    How many years are we going to say this? the 3-4 is our problem. I don't want ware and spencer, 2 of our best pass rushers having to drop into coverage. It seems pretty had to find elite 3-4 dlineman. We have been looking for how long?

    When we drafted him, people doubted whether he would even fit in a 3-4. He'd be great outside.

    I agree. I just think good DL who can excel in the 3-4 are becoming more rare, as are good safeties in general.
