Re: Steelers 4-3 defense
The half where you obviously didn't know the scheme behind a 4-3. The half that made sense was you explaining what Woodley's, Timmons and Keisel's positions are NOW.
I have no delusions that they will change now. However, I don't think that it's out of the question that they start running a 4-3 base from time to time in the near future. Keith Butler and MT are both 4-3 base guys. To adamantly deny that it could be in the plans down the road is foolish at best.
I merely pointed out that the ingredients to run a 4-3 is in place and they are.
As for what is cheaper... we'll see about that 2-3 years down the road when 60-70% of the NFL is running the 3-4. For years the Steelers were able to draft "outside the box" simply because they were running the 3-4. That will not be the case. 3-4 defenders will be at a premium. More demand, less supply it's that simple.
