This hole thread is just silly. Let me count the ways.
1. A Cover 2 D can be played with either a 3-4 or a 4-3 front. All a cover 2 is, 2 deep S's each covering half the feild. Guess what, we already use it from time to time. The only player it would effect is Troy. He would be back off the LOS more often.
In this case it is not the regular cover 2 being talked about, but rather the Tampa 2, which is absolutely incompatible with a 3-4 defense.
In a Tampa 2. you drop the MLB deep so you really have a 3 deep coverage. We have 2 ILB's. One can, and we have already done it. This is a non issue. As for the guy who had the line up, that would be stupid. Keisel and Smith would be the DE's and Porter/Haggans would compete for the other OLB spot.
Proposed 4-3/ Cover 2 iteration of the Steelers
RDE Joey Porter WLB Cato June* RCB Bryant McFadden
RDT Casey Hampton MLB James Farrior FS Anthony Smith
LDT Aaron Smith SLB Larry Foote SS Troy Polamalu
LDE Brett Keisel LCB Ike Taylor
*Signed in 2007 Free Agency.
June could excel with the Steelers, thanks to big Casey Hampton in front of him occupying blockers, and would easily be the fastest player in the front seven. He'd also provide years' worth of experience in the scheme for the transitioning Steelers.
The team would have to draft a future RDE, MLB, and 3-tech tackle - all premier positions, which is no easy task - by 2008. They have a good pickings of all 3 in this year's 1st round, to start.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
i like that but id switch clark with smith
and i would switch haggans with harrison
i think if we do switch to a 4-3 porter will excell in it since he did play de in college
and i do think he is fast enough for that
harrison is a beast and would excell in ne scheme we put him in
taylor is a big corner who could play well in here
and mcfadden is physical
smith is gonna be good and could become a STUD
the other olb i would try to get beason in the second round
or earl everett
