Wow. Williams loves speed, and he now has it at almost every spot on defense. Even Rogers is quick for a 350lb NT.

Fast and Furious should be our 2011 slogan.

I'd like to se a 46 and think it could be quite effective. We must remember however that speed isn't everything; remember the players Haslett drafted, you could think it was a Track team he was trying to build.

No matter how often we run it we will have even more options to confuse and pummel other offenses. Who knows, LBer could be just as much fun to watch at training camp as RB or CB. Regardless, our defense is going to be dominant.

I like the 4-6, but any team trying to run this full-time now as they Bears used to will get burned. The strict rules on illegal contact, QB hits, pass interference and now defenseless receiver are turning aggressive defense into a relic.

The 4-6 could still serve as a nice change of pace for a few downs to apply some pressure on the offense.

I'd bet we'll see some 46, some 3-4, 4-3 and so on. GW likes to run a multiple front defence and I think it will just continue to evolve the longer he stays in NO.

Most teams these days do employ at least some variation of a West Coast offense. The 46 as a special package from time to time, can still be very lethal.
Right. So now I am guessing that MatthewT, neugey and Crusader didn't read the entire article?

I never said that I thought Gregg Williams would use the 46 defense as a base defense. I said that I thought he would use it more often than he has thus far with the Saints' defensive players because of the better, faster personnel that he now has at his disposal and that I thought he would use it on an as needed basis to get more pressure on the QB.

GW loves using multiple sets between variations of the 4-3, the 3-4 and even the 46 and that will never change. He sees all of these different looks as tools to confuse the opposing offenses and try to get them to make mistakes that will result in potential turnovers in his favor. Plain and simple. Anything to get the ball back into the hands of the master Drew Brees again! Works for me...
