A talent like Donald is going to be moved around in either the 3-4 or 4-3. You can debate the merits of which one is better, but I don't think it makes a difference when it comes to Donald. Maybe other players.

. In the 4-3 you bring in a nickel and a safety into each A-gap. In the 3-4 you put a LB on each edge and blitz with a safety. . Either way there's 6 that the O-line has to account for.

Which defense takes a bigger chunk out of the salary cap?

Dude, Wade’s version of a 30-front is really a 4-3 under front. He is very multiple. It makes zero difference if we have a 4-3 guy or this hybrid 3-4 scheme. Donald plays the 3, 5, 7, and wide-9 techs. Get a better coach? Sure. Scheme, at least for AD, is almost irrelevant.

The next 3 weeks are going to define our season. Are we on the up or not?
It's getting down to it on national TV again. Close strong, get on a roll.

I really think it comes down to the LB talent on the roster but in general I like the 4-3 with a rotation of fresh, functional guys that have a stud or two peppered in there.

I like the way you think. I've had the same guy feeling for this part of the season since the early going in the pre-season when they said that Gurley's reps would be monitored.

Going 9-7 or 14-2 doesn't matter if your horses can go in the playoffs.

Yes, but does the chicken come first or does the egg? Do we work the scheme around the LBs or do you acquire the LBs to fit the scheme?

Well... they *have* the LBs for the 3-4.
So.. are you talking about changing back?
If so, it’s pretty easy to see Fowler playing a DE.. even if he’s a little light. You’d probably have Littleton at MLB.. Howard at one outside & maybe Hager at the other. Reeder & Kiser wouldn’t fit. Maybe Hager.
Obo, Ebukam, Patrick and Matthews wouldn’t really fit.

I don't have a preference, as I believe that AD is the best ever in a 3-4 or 4-3. The 3-4 pretty much cuts down on the glamour of sack stats .. (which the untrained eye translates into poor performance).

I'm happy as long as the supporting cast fits the scheme.
