Default bengals to switch to 3-4?

they dont know yet. they would need a s. merriman or d. ware type player drafted.

those guys could be m. lawson and k. wimbley (2 players that 5 years ago the steelers wouldve been able to pick up in the 3rd or 4th round and turn them into stars). these players may not even be there for the bengals 1st pick.

If you can't beat 'em, steal their defensive scheme!

They are takin our scheme and it won't help them...at least not against us. We are the owners of the tough 3-4 scheme and will still be hittin them hard showin them how to properly do it. Palmer better watch out....I'll bet Porter and Townsend are hungry.

Isnt it kinda of funny how a few years ago everyone thought the Pats exposed our 3-4, and the 3-4 was destine for failure. Now everyone is going back to it

Yes they did, didn't you hear?

Quote:
PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Steelers have always been known for being a strong defensive team. They are looking to keep that trend going by unveiling a new scheme that they will use next season. This defensive scheme is called the "3-4."

The 3-4 defense consists of 3 defensive linemen (one nose guard and two defensive ends), four linebackers (two outside linebackers and two inside linebackers), and four defensive backs (two cornerbacks and two safeties).

It is only a matter of time before teams who can't seem to beat the Steelers will begin to adopt this scheme (for example, the Bengals).

michelangelo or beethoven didnt invent art or music. they just mastered them.

d. lebeau invented the zone blitz. cincinatti fired him.

advantage: steelers (with their 5th ring and 2nd year of defensive dominance)

Definitely perfected it to the point where a lot of teams want to switch to it. I guess the Bungles thinking is if the Steelers can do it then so can we. Its not that easy to switch defensive schemes you gots to have the right personnel in every position otherwise it ain't gonna work. So good luck Bungles on getting your defense on the same page.....
