I have only bad vibes for Crennel. I'm not that excited about this.

Crennel would be my #1 choice for DC for 3 reasons.
1) He is a good person. Players and fans will love him.
2) He has extensive experience implementing the 3-4 defense and has a very credible resume as a DC.
3) He has been through teams that changed from a 4-3 to a 3-4 which to me is key. It's one thing to run the scheme, it's quite another to teach it where it hasn't been played by most holdover players and to fast track it's effectiveness.

This made me think of something.

We have several players that have played in the 3-4 before, and played it very well

Bunkley - In Denver
Hawthorne - in Seattle
Jordan - Played in a 3-4 at Cal
Tom Johnson - I think he played in a 3-4 in Canada.

So Lofton and Wilson haven't, and I'm not sure about Galette.

Johnson played on Calgary and they ran a 4-3, although CFL uses 12 defenders so it's a 4-3-5 scheme. I don't know for sure if he played 3-4 in college or elsewhere though. I think Will Herring played it as well and of course Vilma in a limited role.

In some of the CFL footage I've seen on TJ they were lining up with a 3-man front with him as one of the DEs (or was it 3 DTs), but there were only couple of clips where I saw that, so I don't know how often they did that...?

And yeah, Herring came from that Seattle system where they had a 3-4.

I like Romeo as our DC, he is an excellent coordinator

Where did you hear this? Not doubting you, just haven't followed closely. Last I heard Crennel said he had not been contacted yet. Shows how far out of the loop I really am

Romeo or Lovie both are good a D coordinator so anything less won't get us a top 10 D

Lovie's a 4-3 guy (and most likely sitting out this season) and Singletary seems a little loopy. I'm really feelin' this Crennel thing. We could get to the Superbowl with a top twenty D and to the playoffs with a top thirty! Yeah we were that bad this year!

A top ten D would be pretty cool....
