    Dallas suddenly has a deep investment in Lbs. We are going to need some playcalling from our LBS. Suppose we put 4 LBers out there now.

    A 3-4 defense would be a interesting. Defense with the talent we have now why not run a 3-4 defense and make us a special defense Like Doomsday or the Steel Curtain whatever.

    I want our defense to really do something to shake up our rep. Winning would be a nice start.

    My favorite defense. We need a stud nose guard to run it effectively

    All of the LBers have inexperience or health related issues. They have almost zero info on what they have but lets put more LBs on the field. Parsons LVE in Middle with Smith and Cox on the outside, or Smith and LVE in the middle and Parsons and Coax on the outside, I guess then Gregory would need to be in the LB room for meetings.

    That's the reason we've loaded up on LB's, to run the 3-4.

    The Boys are doubling down to fortify their LB core in order to control the run game. Parsons is a great player/addition & will add to an already stellar LB group.

    Too predictable. QB's would shred us.

    If we can get Von Miller in his prime, I'm down. Vince Wilfork in his prime would help too.

    Quinn already said it would look like a 3-4.

    Dan Quinn knows what he is doing. Leave the man to what he's doing.

    Teams don’t run a true 4-3 or 3-4 any more. They mix it up.

    The good news is that the Cowboys have the personnel to run any scheme.

    I saw that. With sort of a rover safety/LBer hybrid what I am suggesting is a 3-4 with all 4 LBers in at the same snap..no hybrid guy too.

    Nickel is the only defense that matters.

    Good luck stopping any competent passing attack with only 4 DBs on the field.

    When one of our LBers retired right before draft day..I think that cemented where the #1 was going to be..especially when the CBs were drafted right before us.

    I don’t think they necessarily “loaded up”, but I think measurable improvement is ahead. The loss of Lee on the field isn’t much when you consider what he’s contributed the last couple of years, and we DID add Neal, Parsons and Cox.

    How did they load up and where is the depth? They drafted 2 guys to replace the 2 current guys that can’t play.

    IDC what they run but heard its hybrid won't be 3-4 all the time but will flex a lot , im sure DQ is going to have plan once he starts seeing some live practices and see what he has with all the LBs and DEs that could possibly play 3-4 and how they ;lay 4-3 and decide how that will fall into place..

    i for sure dont want him forcing 3-4 on layers who cant run it well..

    long offseason to get that decided..
