Default Switch to 3-4 in the cards?

Talking about Rivers here, does this mean we could actually start playing 3-4 D? First time I've seen a coach on any level even hint that we might play it rather than say "it's a possibility".

i dont think we will run strictly the 3-4/ in fact i know we wont. we may, however, have a 3-4 package which would be awesome. the more packages we have available the more ways we can confuse the opposing offense and thus dominate. haha

Oh , I agree. We don't have the players to play 3-4 permanently, but a package just gives us that extra option and depending how we draft next year, we might move more in that direction and start playing the hybrid Marvin developed at Baltimore.

I think we will run the hybrid defense and have multiple 3-4 sets but remain a 4-3 base. If Shirley can work his crap out and develop, he's DEFINITELY nose tackle material with that size...

I think we should really start playing the new super defense of the future....the 0-7 defense....thats right no front line and 7 linebackers...how does it work...I have no idea!!!!!!!!!

I think as long as Shirley can stay sober and not drive his car into apartments we have a legit chance of running a 3-4 sometimes.

Well with Shirley listed at 350lbs on some sites, we might be able to run a 1-6 at the minimum !!!

I think this has been pretty evident without being formally stated. We'll definitely have some 34 looks once the D is comfortable in the new scheme. I think we have the versatility already regardless of the rookies but we definitely drafted a few who could ease that transition.

Definitely hopes of a hybrid.

OLB - Robert Geathers
ILB - Odell Thurman
ILB - Ahmad Brooks
OLB - Keith Rivers

DE - Thornton/Fanene
NT - Peko/Shirley
DE - Rucker/Odom

Thornton/Fanene are probably best suited for ends in terms of size. Rucker/Odom have potential at the spots.

I'd rather see Brooks outside in a 34 than Rivers.

Wasn't sure where Rivers fit in the 3-4 so I can take swapping him and Ahmad for sure. I guess it'd make a lot more sense given Ahmad's pass rushing abilities.

Well, he's got to be better than Pepsi machine was !!!

Anyway, are you guys forgetting Sims in the defensive lineup ?? I just think he's going to get the initial nod when it comes to playing time and if Shirley gets all his issues taken care of, his will come. As for Rivers, he would definitely be a better fit on the inside in either a 4-3 or a 3-4.
