Saints to a 3-4???

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Glad I had some good info. I'm more a lurker than a poster. This move is very unexpected but very exciting. Something had to be done..right or wrong its a start....

Re: Saints to a 3-4???

We did that because Harper is more of a Linebacker with great coverage skills than he is a Saftey with great coverage skills , he plays like a LB too ...

Hawthorne and Lofton Inside , Vilma and Harper out I like it

Hell maybe even T'eo or a Jarvis Jones kinda guy

Even though he was injured all season....I wonder where this leaves Chris Chamberlain....he was Spags' guy.

There's absolutely no way Harper can be a successful 3-4 OLB, he simply doesn't have the size for that position!

So why is everyone assuming that Smith will be gone because of the switch. His strong point is against the run. Wouldn't that make him ideal for a 3-4 DE?

How can we go to a 3 - 4? We could barely field a 4 - 3!

Junior is excited and has a valid point about his time on the field:

@JuniorG93

Re: Saints to a 3-4???

I know this Could backfire big. But in the 4-3 if you break the first line of defense nobody else is there , which may be why payton decided he rather have a stronger second line of defense ... Everyones passing anyways
