This year, we can't. There's no help. On defense, we simply do not have the players. If we had ONE strong DT, just one, we could get by. But we don't. Simmons retiring hurt us big as well. Our LBs are decent, but no one is writing home about them. Our only two real playmakers are at DE, and a 3-4 with this personnel would completely neutralize them because who else would man the DE spot in a 3-4 for us every down? No one i'd trust. I dig what you are saying, believe me I do. But going to a 3-4 now would only make a bad defense worse cause we simply do not have the personnel for it. And trying to force it, when they have not practiced it once far as I know this off-season is even worse. Your points are valid, just not feasible, at this time. IMO.

Ok, I just hit the pipe so bear with me. Lets put Brees in an O-Line spot, Carney can double as LB'er/Punt returner. Grant can play option QB, with Gibbs setting up some wishbone sets from his Oklahoma days. We can set the backfield up with Zach Strief, Joe Horn, and ghost of Chuck Muncie. Jammal Brown can be the punter, and Stallsworth can be our pass rusher, that way if he bats a ball down, we can be supportive of his efforts for a change. We'll have Reggie as the holder on all kicks, but fake every field goal. We can re-sign the surely soon to be cut Aaron Brooks as deep snapper, cause he has experience at it. Then the Coup d' gras...........Benson as Head Coach. Ah, the shear fun and frivolity of it all will send many teams into fits of histeria, at which time we can spring the trap on them. So, what ya think.......not everyone at once now........

Respect my authori-tie
