Itīs no coincidence that Arizona and Houston are becoming the best defenses in the league. They stuck to the scheme and got the players to fit that scheme. It works very well over time when you find the players to replace the old ones. But you NEED PLAYMAKERS.
Ray Horton's defense (who uses LeBeaus same scheme) is hot because the Cards have Patrick Peterson, Daryl Washington, Adrian Wilson and a load of defensive playmakers.
