Re: The DL dilemma
A 3-4 is designed for 2 gap DE's and a NT. The majority of the NFL plays a 3-4 now and for fans to want our D linemen to play 1 gap responsibility shows they know very little about how a 3-4 is played.
In a 3-4 the stars making all the plays need to be the LB's. Harrison is now injured and on the decline. Foote is on the decline and Woodley played below par all season. The D line is fine with Hood, Heyward, Keisel, McLendon, Ta'amu and Fangopu going forward.
Adding players like Barkavious Mingo, Shane Skov, Kyle Van Noy and Sean Spence will improve the defense going forward. Just need to see how the draft and Spence rehab goes.
