I kind of have to wonder why the hell it took so long to make the transition to a 3-4. I'm just talking about signing huge run stuffing DT's like Aubrayo Franklin, Shaun Rogers, Broderick Bunkley... Then drafting Cameron Jordan. Last offseason we signed two of the highest ranked MLB's in free agency (Lofton and Hawthorne.) Seems like we've been acquiring players fit for the 3-4 defense lately and end up getting dissapointed when they don't fit.

Yep, it started several years ago with Galette, then Martez, the Jordan and like you mentioned, Franklin then Bunkley...

I'd love to have Franklin back right now. I think Dunbar would have made a pretty good WILB as well.
