3-4 One Gap Or Two Gap?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Since we are going to the 3-4 would you rather run the one gap or two gap scheme? And why?...

Re: 3-4 One Gap Or Two Gap?

With our current personnel, 1-gap

If we get that massive 2-gap NT then a 2-gap.

It also depends on the opponent. I hear the 2-gap 3-4 is weak against the new spread option some teams are using.

I'd imagine we'd likely play both a lot during games, but as a base defense, personell will probably dictate which one we use.

Crennel typically runs with the 2-gap 3-4.

Devil's advocate ... what happens if you get a stud NT for 2-gap and he goes down? Do teams revert to the 1-gap?

I would suppose so. Not really a huge shift if I read the article on the two types correctly. Different gap assignments but basically the same skill set for all involved.

Get the Niners Assistant DC and we have both covered.
