Default Re: Official "Our Defensive Line Sucks" Thread

You guys are watching a scheme that works for guys like Aaron Smith and Bret Keisel, tall with long wingspans, not work for shorter, exposive guys with shorter arms. Throw in the recent rule change that allows chop blocking by adjacent linemen, and our version of the 3-4 is the dodo bird.

Let Heyward and Hood play 1-gap and penetrate. They're both very good at this, but too often are asked to stand up and play read/react while other linemen chop their legs.
