And Hali and DJ were ALSO part of two 4-3 cover 2 defenses that were pretty decent in 06 and 07.
As decent as ANY defense Crennel put on the field.
And yes, those teams had Jared Allen, but this team also has Justin Houston.
I just don't see it the same way. We're not throwing away talent if we switch schemes. Justin Houston, playing as a 4-3 end, might be even better. He wouldn't waste any ****ing snaps dropping in coverage for sure.
