    If only the 4-3 had come along a little earlier in Jason Hatcher’s career with the Cowboys.
    The current defensive scheme or the former defensive coordinator might have had Hatcher rolling along like he is now — tied for the team lead in sacks, second in quarterback pressures, with a tackle for loss and a pass defensed in only two games — much sooner.

    He wonders, too.

    “Kinda sorta. When I came out of college, I came from a 4-3, and when I got here, I two-gapped,” the veteran defensive lineman said. “And I really didn’t like it. I didn’t really like it. But this scheme, it gives me the opportunity to be an athlete again. So I’m enjoying it again. I’m really happy with where I am right now.”

    The 3-4 defense is only good for a few teams leaguewide at a time. The 4-3 is the best defensive scheme the NFL has ever had and always will be, unless you have Lawrence Taylor.

    Hope Hatcher can injury free, that has been in trouble in the past.

    Yeah. It's not that I have anything against the 3-4. But I do prefer the 4-3. Also, it seems easier to draft for that scheme.

    I like this change on the D and the Marinelli hire.

    Exactly. Wade said he was a player he just couldn't stay healthy. I think he can play DE and DT though in this scheme.
