Re: Lebeau Defenses not Championship Defenses
Again let me say I'm a big fan of lebeau and wouldn't trade him for anyone else, but let me pose a question
In there prime, would smith, kiesel, Hampton, Harrison, farrior, Woodley, timmons, Troy, Ike, Clark be pro bowl caliber players on any other team that ran a 3-4?
And would lebeau defenses be just as successful meaning top 5 year in year out on any other team?
What I'm trying to get at is that our defense has been so reluctant to have all those great players under lebeau and without those guys we wouldn't be top 5 every year because of lebeaus scheme. It has a lot to do with the players you have. It's just some people well most don't want to blame anything on lebeau when in reality there should be some blame. Because as everyone saw when Harrison, Woodley, Troy, Ike were hurt we didn't look like a great defense.
So what are your thoughts to the 2 questions?
