We have tried for the last 10 years to draft a 3-4 DE to no avail. Crennel needs to form his scheme to the players he has available, not the other way around.

Probably because 3-4 is all Romeo knows how to do.

Im sure there are situations where we are 4-3 though at times.

Because Pioli is a tool.

I'm fine with the scheme.

Our D has had many moments of being pretty terrific in the second halves of games.

How long it takes us to adjust and the fact that we get off to such bad starts indicates to me that Romeo isn't able to put the time into game planning as he should. Which is what everyone pretty much already knew. That, and Romeo is coaching these guys soft.

THIS HASN'T BEEN BROUGHT UP BEFORE.

Oh, and Houston could be totes screwed in a 4-3. (He'd have to put on a lot of weight, for sure.)

Why the hell cant we just play the entire game aggressively. Just attack and go down swinging. We did some at he N.O. game and some against the chargers today . It puts Houston,Hali and DJ in beast mode!

By last 10, you mean last four right?

Because our defensive coordinator is spending the entire week figuring out how to be a shitty head coach.

Yet another reason Pioli is an embarrassment. A failed head coach in his first stint? Let's give him even MORE responsibility.

Hey, I have an idea.

You should jump off a tall building.

The better question is if we should move to 1-gap or zone blitz. We absolutely have the personnel to do that.

Nothing at all wrong with a 3-4.....How bout the offense stops turning the ball over in thier own territory 3 times a game?

I think we need to go to a 4-4-4 or a 3-5-4 to really have a chance.

Houston wouldn't play DE in a 43. Hali would...like he did prior to Pioli. He'd have to gain some weight, but he's done it before. Houston would be an OLB if we switched.

You'd have to assume both will play as well with added weight. They're going to lose a step. I don't like the move at all. These guys are exceptional 3-4 OLBs, and those are really hard to find. Rather than re-invent the wheel, why not just re-design your defense to your players' strengths?

The Chiefs absolutely should stay 3-4.

I don't disagree. I'm just saying that Houston wouldn't be asked to play DE if we switched to the 43. Hali would. Someone above said Houston would play DE. There's no way that would happen.

We don't have the personnel. Plus we are sticking to the shitting 3-4.

I loathe the 3-4
