Re: Switching to 3-4?

It looks like most of ya'll are against any change in our defensive scheme. But I ask you this, could a change in our scheme make our defense any worse? It's not like this is a if it ain't broke don't fix it situation. Many of you have stated that we don't have the proper personel, of course we don't because we've been running a 4-3. But neither did the Pats, Cowboys, Chargers, etc. They had to add the pieces just like we would have to. You have to start somewhere. I admit that it wouldn't be wise to have a base 3-4 this year given our current roster but we could gradually incorparate it in to our packages while adding the players to make the switch. Why is it so crazy to want our team to have a more complex, attacking defense? I watch the Chargers, Cowboys, Chargers, and the other teams who have complex defenses and ask myself why can't we be like them? If they can do it why can't we?

... guess right now everyone is enamoured with the 3-4 because of the Giants.. just like every year, everyone falls in love with the SB winner's scheme.
T-R,
I have long respected your posts.

Another Bullseye.

I have to say it hasn't helped the Chargers or the Cowboys in the play-offs.

I'm out Pak.
This thread is all about (me included) frustration with the unknown.
Also. Frustration with the decisions made at this time of year.

Faith!

Let's not start sucking each other's posts just yet Husker.
If you are indeed a BIG-12 Guy.

You should acknowledge the fact that THE SEC is the dominant football conference in the land!

HEE HEE!!!!
