Switching it up?  Not a good sign.

Why not? Cowboy's D fell apart last season, even though Dallas had every big name DB  you could think (along with a handful of big name DL) of on their roster. Saint's DBs, not so good. Great sign IMO.

I like that the Saints are switching up.  Should give them a decent learning curve over the next year at least.  How well suited are they to switching to a 3-4?

Hawthorne, Lofton, Vilma are all more 4-3 LB.  They'll have to retool their d-line.  Cam Jordan is versatile.  Will Smith will likely have to restructure his contract or be released due to his cap number.  Ellis is gone.  Martez Wilson could convert to rush LB, I think.  They're pretty much going to have to start from scratch.
