View Full Version : What Base Defense Do You Want?

I just want to know what defense do you guys want to run next year. I want to run a 3-4 but I feel like the coaches are moving towards a 4-3. I just dont feel like we generate enough pass rush with 4 down linemen.

What do you guys think?

I voted a 4-3 because I feel as if that's what the coaching staff is best positioned to use. IMO neither Harbaugh nor Mattison have the creativity needed to implement an effective 3-4 defense, and they both have pretty strong backgrounds in a 4-3 scheme. I'd prefer it if we were to use a 3-4, but I don't see it happening that way. We'll most likely continue to use a hybrid of both defenses though, judging by last season the 3-man fronts will be used on early downs and the 4-man fronts will be used on passing/later downs.

3-4 for certain teams.
4-3 for others.
