Well yeah but the difference is that a DB who isn't particularly athletic can could still play in a zone by being smart and letting the system work for him. The reverse doesn't really apply.

Another question, what happens with a 3-4 when you go to the nickle. Any difference?

Just rumors but...

Profootballtalk mentions Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini as potential defensive-coordinator options for the Saints.

PFT isn't basing this off of anything other than the Sean Payton-Bill Parcells connection, but they both do have experience running the 3-4 defense that the Saints are transitioning to. New Orleans is a little late in the game, so they'll likely have to promote from within or go out and grab a retread. Since nobody on the current staff knows the 3-4, going outside the organization is the only option.

I wanted the 3-4 for a long long time, I think our best defense has been in the 3-4 Alignment under Gregg Williams when it was schemed up, the 4-3 just never worked, has never worked except in 06 When Fred Thomas and McKenzie were the 2 starting CBs, both guys were athletic enough to get a top 15 defense, but that changed quickly in the NFCCG vs Chicago.
