Wilson doesn't have the strength to fight off double team as a 3-4 DE, I'm thinking Jordan on one side and Hicks on the other

3-4 brilliant, but selfish!!!!

So Shawn wants to move to the 3-4 first I think it's a tremendously brilliant move......but also an extremely selfish one. If I don't explain I'm sure somebody here will get two blackandgold members to hold me whilst all members of b&g have at kicking me in the nads.......

The long and short of it is it's selfish because we already have plenty of pieces for a viable 3-4 defense here. You would really only have to draft a nt, and corners....making a defensive first round pick a long shot at best. Would you be surprised if that big ol Johnson ends up our first round selection...... He's basically giving every player on the Saints team a pass........and saying in a different scheme you guys would have been better.

Why CB's? Our CB's are better suited for man coverage anyway. Even Johnny Patrick may surprise some people. OK, maybe thats a stretch.

Re: Saints to a 3-4???

Depends on how we play the secondary... The 49ers run the 3-4 staying in man coverage most of the time. The Steelers run more of a zone 3-4, I think...

But you said it yourself about having to draft a NT. Jonathan Hankins from Ohio State and John Jenkins from Georgia are two guys that could be there when we draft to fill NT.

I think Marquis Johnson will surprise people.

Is he still on the roster.....I coulda sworn he went to IR then they gave him an injury settlement. Which would make him a FA....same thing with Greg Romeus.....I might be wrong but I for some reason I remember that being the case for both. Unless both resigned during or after the season.

Re: Saints to a 3-4???

Would also be a nice side effect, if practicing against a 3-4 every week could make Drew better against a 3-4. He struggles with that type of defense a lot. This might even help him crack that nut.
