Default Re: Could the Casey Hampton Injury Push Steelers Towards A 4-3 Defense?

im not going to complain or say its not possible like some of you if Tomlin decides to change and im certainly not going to complain if we stay the same. either way we have the players to be dominant.

odds are we will remain a 3-4 and draft a NT in the 1st round of the draft
According to Lebeau, they play the 4-3 all the time, just mixing it up. I think "all the time" is a bit of a stretch, but obviously we've got talented guys who can follow instructions. Still, so much of our personnel and scheme is expressly devoted to implementing a highly successful 3-4, I just don't see a change in the next decade. Especially if, as I've read, it's actually cheaper.
