Default Re: Do we break the bank on Hampton ?

In the 3-4 the NT role isn't so much about the NT itself as it is about the LB's. You have to have a mountain of a man(great) to eat up one extra blocker at the point to free up a lane for an active LB. With Hampton out, I'm afraid we held a LB in to help out which led to better run stats, but lower pressures. No knock on Hoke as he is what he is and played his heart out, but his stat/bio sheet is not what we are looking for long term.
