Just sayin. I think the several of our losses last year were also against the 4-3.

Yet we have a 3-4 and usually win 11 games a year... So I don't get it? Most teams run a 4-3. Teams jumped on the 3-4 this year but the NFL is a 4-3 league.

We've only lost 3 games to 2 teams. I'm not ready to extrapolate to other 4-3s.

Plus I'm not sure it was the 4-3 as much as our redzone efficiency. That's something we need to fix.

I have to wonder if we don't have the personnel from a practcie squad perspective to replicate a good 4-3 defense in game prep. I'm sure we do for a 3-4 but we just seem to struggle versus the 4-3 particularly picking up blitzing LBs.

I actually think it is probably close to a 50/50 league with regards to 3-4 or 4-3.

The Steelers beat the second best team in the NFC and they play a 4-3 if I recall correctly.
