that's the only honest reason to switch this team.
27 sacks this season -- that is pathetic for a 4th year defense.
29 sacks the season before. still not good.
38 sacks during 2010 -- that's good.
10 ****ing sacks the last time this team was 43 base defense. 10.
I'm gonna expect they will use base 34 with a lot more 43 initially. If they have success 43, then they will use it more. But unless they get a capable pass rusher not named Justin Houston, I doubt they will switch.
Houston is a good all around backer -- he can cover, tackle and sack. Why would you limit his abilities putting him in a an exclusive role? I would not.
