I was thinking today and I have done a complete 180 on my thoughts regarding defensive scheme. I think its time to go back to the 4-3. Tomlin is here for his defensive to reach full potential we need to be in a 4-3. Lets remember the Steel Curtain was a cover 2, Noll and Carson actually were the inventors. I really am in favor of a change next year to a 4-3 cover 2. In this formation of Cover 2 a quick fast LB is required to drop back into coverage...a perfect fir for Lawrence Timmons. Woodley and Foote can both play either SLB or WLB. As many of you feel Farrior may not be a Steeler in a year or two so having a rotating LB for a year will help keep the core fresh. Our 4 down lineman will be DT Hampton, DT Hoke, DE, Smith, DE Keisel. If we do decide to switch to this scheme of cover 2 O-line should still be out focus but a stud DE or DT should be a first round target.
