Ok guys, this is my first official thread so I'll keep it basic. I wanted to see what you all think would be the best defensive scheme considering only our current player roster. I know a good deal about football, but a defensive coordinator job is unfortunately not in my future :( Also if this thread is in the wrong place let me know so that I can flagellate myself.

The best place for our defense is the bench.

Tampa 2 with NO pass rush and weak LBs. Works brilliantly. Oh wait ...

4-3 with an aggressive blitz scheme. IE: Giants or Eagles.

If we get a 3-4 coach we could do a 3-4 with a couple of decent FA aquistitions. But I still think that the new HC and DC should stick with a 4-3 as the base scheme and audible to 3-4 when necessary. JMO though...

Depends who we pick up in free agency and the draft.

I believe all teams that run the 3-4 use the 4-3 still too.

The one that let's us use 16 guys instead of 11. There would still be a bend don't break factor but we could hold teams under 20.

we have bad protection against the run, we need to find something that will counter that.

We have decent CBs and we can defend the pass well if we improve our pass rush.

I really don't know. Gun screwed things up last year..

I don't think Gun will build a great defense in Detroit, probably not even top 10...but I think he can make a better one there than he could here.

Detroit was ranked 32nd, we were ranked 31st...sky's the limit.

I just think he can have more success under Schwartz who he coached with in Tennessee than he ever could under air ball Vermiel and Tampa Two Herm.

I'm not disagreeing with you...the next D coach will look pretty darn good compared to the former when all you have to do is be better than last place. lol. I think Gun will do alright.

Yes, because anything over 20....then you're talking arena league football! :banghead:

So if we switch to the 3-4 what kind of players would we need to add through free agency or draft?

The scheme that involves getting rid of the craptastic LB's and DL we have, and actually aquirring NFL caliber players would be the best bet IMHO.
