HOW WOULD YOU FIX THE DEFENSE?

Posted July 08, 2013

MANY of us have questions or concerns about the Defense, but what about ideas? I don't like this 3-4 set that we're currently developing. It WILL leave us exposed on the edges versus the pass. 

It occurred to me that in life OUTSIDE of YB, I'm a guy who doesn't issue a complaint without an adjoining solution or suggestion. Yet here, I feel like I've reduced it to a bi*ching-fest.

If you aren't that guy, then don't BE that guy.

If you fall into that rut, get back up and do better.

This is me doing what I think is better.

MY idea is actually the Eagles idea. Remember when they were talking about using the 4-3 Under to transition to the 3-4? I LOVED the first half of that idea! They have a 4-3 Under staff already in place, save for a Secondary. 

What I think would fix the Defense would be more 4-3. Safety is going to be a train wreck. The sooner we all come to grips with that the better. But there's a difference between having TWO exploitable weaknesses. There's no reason to be weak in the flat AND back deep. That's why I go with the group of Mychal Kendricks/ Connor Barwin/Jamar Chaney playing OLB. Now you have a legit group that can play the front AND cover.

With that Brandon Graham and Trent Cole can get down to doing what they're good at: Playing DE. 

Well! That's my idea. 

What's yours?
