  • Defensive Schemes

          Alot of teams say they run one front but really everyone runs a little bit of everything...The Giants def. ran some 3-4 fronts...the Jets and Pats will switch up their front depending on who they're playing...etc.

            Also differentiate the different kinds of 3-4 schemes. NE/CLE/NYJ use a 2-gap contain 3-4 while SD/PIT/DAL all use attacking versions which emphasize speed and blitzing over power and containment.

              True. I noted which teams I knew "shook things up" somewhat often. There are some teams (Jaguars) that never alternate from their base 4-3, although now with Gregg Williams we might throw in a 46 or even a 3-4 now and then.

                Giants really mix up our d, we'll use 3 safeties, 4 DEs, a 3-4, all kinds of variations of the 4-3 and many other schemes. Our D changes a lot depending on down, distance, opposition, health, etc.

                    Eagles run some 3-4 and Johnson has hinted that they are going to use the 3-4 set a lot more this season.

                        Good post Unseen. The only thing that jumps out at me is that Pittsburgh tends to run some cover 2 schemes out of the 3-4 and that the Cardinals sort of ran a hybrid scheme last year that would probably be best described as a 5-2 rather than either a 3-4 or 4-3.

                        edit -

                        There's also been a lot of suggestion that Oakland will finally run some of Rob Ryan's 3-4 schemes this year, but I'm betting that depends heavily on whether Terdell Sands convinces anyone that he is capable of manning the nose.

                            Actually don't the cardinals run a 3-4? At least some type of hybrid.



                            Edit:

                            Sorry didn't see this.

                              I could be completely off base here but I thought the Dolphins ran more of a 3-4 base than a 4-3.
