Default Re: Steelers 4-3 defense

You know, if you think about it a lot of our young defensive stars (I think) already played the 4-3 before they came here. Woodley and Worilds were both DE's and Hood was a DT. So, hypothetically, I'm not sure it would be as difficult a change as it as first seems. Sylvester and Timmons could be LB's, Worilds, Woodley, and Hood could be on the Dline, the secondary wouldn't really change at all (It still needs to be addressed right now but no personnel changes are required for a scheme switch), so we'd need one more DT and one more LB.

The problem is, guys like Woodley and Worilds weren't dominant as DE's in college, and their potential is maximized by the 3-4. So it could actually just end up making our defense a lot worse.

Again, I like the 3-4 better. I was just examining the possibility.
