I like the option of going to a 3-4. I don't know about making it our main Defense

We have more people to run a 3-4 than the Saints who are switching to a 3-4. If we were to just say "lets do it" our D would suffer less from the scheme change than theirs

I still think there is a high possibility we dump one of these guys to make cap space. I would rather see a trade than the occasional 3-4 calls. I don't really get the 3-4 fixation for us. It would be wasting our DEs who have been getting it done. We are overstocked and overpaid at LB.

On a side note it is going to be fun killing the Saints next year. They are over the cap and are switching to a D that they are poorly stocked for. LOL, I love it when other teams reach!

We only truly lack one thing is a nasty Nose tackle that can take on two O linemen and demands a double team. That would still put Hardy and Johnson one on one while not being able to block everybody. It would be downright nasty.

I Don't want to switch to the 3-4 & Our LB don't have the Size for a full time 3-4 & the only spot on a 3-4 they fit is the middle also Hardy is 290 so he'll work ok in a 3-4 but in our current wrinkle Johnson lines up at LB & Alexander isn't a Fit now look the cowboys & Chargers are switching over to the 4-3 because they can't get Pressure on the QB & the Cowboys actual have the players for what they will run now which in a tampa two
