I know its a 4-3 formation been knew that been knew Spags runs a 4-3.
But thinking creatively when I know they are routinely shift into a formation where the Safety is in da box. My opinion is we could commit more to it with the strength of our personnel the LBs and play 4 LBs at times especially if its Martez what I'm suggesting is that Martez can do what Harper can and likely cover better Id put money on it.
If Will Smith can drop into coverage certainly we can trust Martez or other LBs to do that from the seocnd level which they wll do anyway. Its all situational. Tbere would be times where nickel and dime packages are ran out of the 4-4 LOOK its just gives us a better chance to disguise things blitzes coverages etc.
You can keep getting hung up on semantics trying to act like Im stupid and you are Vince Lombardi
Fact is routinely the Saftey is stepping up in our 4-3 defense. I'm not making this up the players said it and its right there on film.
In my opinion its the right thing to do I just think we should do it more as our base formation with varying personnel packages and still shifting our formation.
What I am suggesting is very simple and we are halfway doing it anyway.
All Im saying is we try to commit more to stopping the run and creating additional pressure. And I believe the 4-4 as a base would maximize this.
Get Martez in there more and play out of the same formation when Nickel and Dime personnel are on the field.
