[QUOTE=DACEB;380372]I know, 265lbs = undersized?

I meant when lining up in a 4-man line, he's a tad undersized when compared to a traditional 4-3DE. But he definetely has the ability to rush the QB in that situation.

And really he should be down from 265, to around 255 to drop back in coverage.[/QUOTE

Alright M.O.P., point taken. That is a sceptical list right there though. Freeney is labeled as undersized. Taylor is and Adams could be a hybrid DE/OLB. Kearse was known as 'the freak' and Strahan is special.

Like I said, point taken. I'll leave you with this, like my wife always tells me; "you know what I mean!"

If my memory serves me correct, I believe the staff wants Woodley below 260lbs. to play OLB.

Tomlin also apparently values QB's who throw into double coverage only when the pass won't be picked off. And running backs who only fumble when our team recovers said fumble.

Your absolutely right, that's where we're going. But, I don't think Tomlin is in a rush to get there. What I mean is, Tomlin wants to win NOW. I don't believe he will make a move that will put the team in a vunerable situation. I think he values both systems and is slowly piecing together the type of players he values.

I agree, yes Tomlin has the base philosophy of Tampa 2, but a true Tampa 2 is no longer viable in today's NFL, not with the wide open spread style passing game. 2 safeties can't sit back in today's game. You need one mobile run stuffing and short yardage coverage safety and an over the top style double team safety. As for 3/4 vs 4/3, the talent on the field dictates the current scheme, if in 3 years, our talent allows for a 4 man front, yes he'll switch us to that eventually, but then again, more and more winning teams are installing 3/4 - 4/3 hybrids that change from situation to situation. Thats the future, not a Tampa 2.

my eyes are wide open.
