Sorry for the n00b question.

Does the 3-4 necessitate a switch to M2M?

No, you can play M2M, zone and even cover 2 behind in a 3-4 defense.

I think sometimes people think the 3-4 is only M2M because Defensive Coordinators running a 3-4 want to free up more guys to blitz and attack the line of scrimmage so they end up playing M2M.

It really doesn't matter though, 3-4 only indicates what the front 7(DLine and LB's) are doing. You can run any kind of coverage you want behind it.

We will play very limited zone.

We will play very limited zone.

The Patriots play about 80-85% zone, so it's very possible that we will do the same, since Scott Pioli seems to be dictating the change in scheme.

And he didn't run a 34.

I thought he did while at DAL.
