Draft Ziggy Ansah... problem solved. He can play any position in the 3-4 and I'm not kidding. The guy is an absolute freakish monster. 6'6" 280 and runs the 200 in 21 flat. He's going to blow the doors off at the combine, and you throw him in the mix with Irvin, Clemons, Mebane, Red, Branch, Jones, and the rest, then I think the defensive front 7 will be so relentless and unstoppable that no team can scheme for them and it doesn't matter who we are playing.
Pete has been a guy who always wants to impose his will on the opponent rather than the other way around. If he goes to a 3-4 look it is because he wants to throw a different look out there, it isn't guys scrambling to a 3-4 to cover a certain offensive set. Same with the 4-3 looks. We've seen opposing offenses call timeouts many more times than we've seen our defense call timeouts because of personnel mismatches. In fact I can think of at least 5 times offenses have been confused by the look our D was giving them and the QB called a timeout, and possibly once, or twice max where our D was mixed up and had to call it (and I believe it was because we had 12 men on, not because we had the incorrect personnel grouping).
R.I.P. Dad. I miss you. You will never be forgotten
