    Coaching is the 600lb gorilla I the room. Steve White, former Buc, just roasted the Buc’s defense and all but called Hardy Nickerson a great player, but a terrible coach. Has cronyism destroyed any chance of having a great defense? Does Mikal Smith have the resume to make Goldson and Barron better safeties? I’ve previously posted resumes of Arroyo and Warhop – speaks volumes!

    I knew that Foster with only 4.75 speed in the 40 could not possibly cover the deep seam and losing weight was going to result in his being run over by opposing backs. I also told the Bucs where to get an Urlacher clone but of course they didn’t listen. Here is the simple solution Mr. Licht: get Max, the MLB, off the Houston Practice Squad for free. They got him to stop the run but say on their Internet site that he could cover too. Watch the Ohio State v. Michigan State game from last year when Max stopped the top RB in this year’s draft from sideline to sideline and had the speed to cover passes and 6’3″ height to knock them down too. Hardy was a great player but is a bust at coaching because he thought Foster could play Tampa 2. However, Foster would be a great SLB for us and was rated the top Outside LB by Lindys when we drafted him. Our problems at LB can be fixed.

    I have no problem with up and coming Coaches that are still in a big learning curve; why is that? In my life the hungry ones are still willing to learn and adapt; they on;y lack some more experience. I hope we all calm down some. My goodness, so many of the same Posters last year who criticized me for wanting Schiano fired after his 2nd game in his second year seem to have no patience for this Head Coach after just 6 games. Why is that? Hmmm… Coach Smith has plenty of history of success and also failure, but I believe he still has the fire in him to learn and adapt. He got dealt a history of bad drafting and I am willing to give him time to straighten it out. Why can’t some of you? Hmm…

    Watched NFL redzone yesterday paying attention to who was running a 4-3, and who was running a 3-4. It seems to me the 3-4 is more suited to defend todays offenses. Linebackers are better athletes then linemen so you’re putting one better player on the field. Also noticed that three D linemen occupy 5 O linemen freeing up an extra defender, also in pass rush it’s hard to figure what linebacker might be rushing the passer. Another advantage is it’s harder to throw crossing routes against 4 backers instead of 3. One other important fact. Most plays get past the line of scrimidge, in a 3-4 that leaves an extra man to make a play. Another other thing. Our D likes small fast linebackers, the 3-4 usually employs bigger backers, that can shed blocks, and actually rush the passer, look at Sugg’s sack totals. From what I can see, the 3-4 D is way better then the 4-3.

    Surferdudes,

    The best defense in the NFL in 2015, Detroit uses a 4-3 Cover2. The best defense in 2014, Carolina uses a 4-3 Cover 2. However 7 of the top 10 defenses in 2014 uses a 3-4 defense. Pick your poison. Would you rather be the best or just one of the best? My opinion – all defenses can work with the right personnel. With the NFL split about right down the middle on the type of defense deployed tells me it’s more coaches preference, than which is hands down the best defense or they would all be running one or the other!

    NFL teams using a 3–4 base defense as of 2014————–
    Atlanta Falcons
    Arizona Cardinals
    Baltimore Ravens
    Cleveland Browns
    Green Bay Packers
    Houston Texans
    Indianapolis Colts
    Kansas City Chiefs
    New Orleans Saints
    New York Jets
    Pittsburgh Steelers
    Philadelphia Eagles
    San Diego Chargers
    San Francisco 49ers
    Tennessee Titans
    Washington Redskins
    New England Patriots

    The Top 10 Defenses in 2014—————–

    1 Detroit Lions
    2 San Francisco 49ers
    3 Indianapolis Colts
    4 Miami Dolphins
    5 San Diego Chargers
    6 Denver Broncos
    7 Washington Redskins
    8 Seattle Seahawks
    9 New York Jets
    10 Kansas City Chiefs
