    In the NFL, rushing 4 is standard. Rushing 3 or less is focusing on extra coverage rather than pressure. Rushing 5 is a blitz. Rushing 6 or more is an all-out blitz (veteran QB's know how to beat this by throwing to a hot route...unless someone comes completely free and blasts him first). I don't mind rushing 4 roughly half the time and rushing 5 roughly half the time. Not a big fan of 3 or less or 6 or more except for rare instances.

    I prefer rushing 5 as that at least guarantees one on match-ups that can be won unless the offense keeps a RB or TE in to help block which thus takes them out of the passing attack.

    I have said it before. It aint DL. It is a TALENT issue.

    We dont have a our two recent DPOY players.

    To now imagine DL is suddenly a bum when we suddenly lose our best defensive end (Smith) inside LBer (Farrior), outside lber (Harrison), and Secondary player (Troy), is ridiculous.

    We need a 4-3 allignment and play press coverage. I think that the 3-4 scheme that was so innovative in the 90s and 00s, have been figured out. Today's dink and dunk offenses with surgeons like Rodgers, Brady etc... Seem to have their way with our soft zone spots. Couple that with no-huddle and we pretty much will get owned every time..... Would love to see us eventually transition to a 4-3 and find a new DC to man the helm. If course this means blowing up the D, to a certain extent.... We have defensive players that could transition easily to a 4-3 (Woodley to DE for example) but that means farewell to D!ck LeBeau which would say goodbye pretty much like Hines did. JMHO.

    Did anyone watch the Rams defensive linemen last night? Did anyone notice how their linemen were beating the guys assigned to block them? They didn't trick anyone. They just beat the guy lined up across from them. Something we have not been able to do. That's not schemes or predictability. That's talent, or in our case a lack thereof. We have to face the fact that either our guys have to improve or we need some new talent.

    Getting back Harrison and Troy, no matter how old, is gonna help us.

    Because they are assigned to beat those players assigned to block them...

    it is partially the scheme though, our DL are taught to not just pin their ears back and to rush the passer because they must maintain their gap responsibilities. read this excerpt below:


    More of an issue is Ta’amu getting used to the switch from defensive end to nose tackle in the Steelers’ 3-4 scheme.

    Ta’amu is required to occupy blocks with his wide frame and stay gap-sound rather than use his athleticism to make plays. He found out at minicamp that’s not as easy as it might seem.

    “I got to the quarterback on one play, but the coaches told me that we are a gap team and we don’t need a Superman,” Ta’amu said.

    I don't know how much of this I trust since Ta’amu was never a defensive end. He played tackle in college.

    I guess that's an issue with Mark Kaboly, but the Ta'amu quote was probably real...

    I don't want a gym class hero on this team. I want sound gap responsibility.
