3-4 or 4-3?

Recommended Posts

Simple question - we'll be bringing in  new staff, and there's a possibility we'll be changing fronts.

Which do you prefer - a 3-4 look or a 4-3 look?

4-3. It requires less good players. A 3-4 requires a dominate nose tackle, an End that can pass rush. You need 2 middle linebackers and your two outside linebackers need to be able to rush and cover. 
 

a 4-3 can rely on 2 more average DTs. You just need two Ends that can pass rush instead of 2 ends and 2 OLBs. Your 3 linebackers don’t all have to be able to rush the passer. 
 

I just think it takes some serious talent to be good in a 3-4. Plus when running a nickle or dime package, the 3-4 requires some major changes. A 4-3 only requires a player change, they don’t have to change positions. 
 

looking at our current roster, and we can get to a 4-3 easily. At linebacker we play McKinney at middle, Cunningham at outside and then the other outside spot can be between Cole and Adams. Cole has been better in coverage. We could easily replace McKinney with Adams and need an upgrade on the other side

at d-line we have so many guys that can play either spot. Blacklock and Hall can start at DT. Omenihu and Watt can play DE in a 4-3. Greenard moves to end. 
 

the kind of odd man out is Jamie Martin. Idk if he can play DE and idk if he can play OLB in a 4-3. We could potentially trade him for an upgrade.
