    Yeah, I think 3-4 is a serious possibility sooner than later.


    Corey's a prototypical 1 gap DE, Paea could hold his own in a 1 gap scheme, Shea'd be solid at LB/Standup DE/3 point DE in 4-3 looks.


    I think something along the lines of what Baltimore runs and/or a Bum Phillips look could definitely happen within the next 3 years.

    Just because they said he will be strictly a defensive end doesnt mean that they cant change their minds, you dont think the front office isnt thinking about Urlachers replacement? he is on the wrong side of 30 and most likely has 3 years left at most

    I feel like block shedding will come along with the more playing time he would get

    What about Hardin moving to LB when he's back?

    He has the frame, just don't know if he'd be that effective at that size

    Are you talking about in the T2 or if we were to switch to a 34?

    T2

    If we go far in the playoffs this year, this team isn't ditching Lovie or the T2 for awhile.

    I'm just spitballing right now, so bear with me.

    -Hardin was just as much of a project (if not more) than Shea.
    -Hardin has an elite size/speed/skill ratio (like a certain #54)
    -Conte/Wright have both stepped up this year at the S spots, and if they keep it up we won't be looking to replace either of them
    -He's 6'3" with 4.3 speed and a violent hitter
    -Roach is (already) a 6 year vet, and while solid, he's normally unspectacular.



    I guess worse case scenario is that we develop a quality backup S, which is about all you can ask from a 3rd round pick.

    Yeah, I agree. I think the 3-4 talk is sort of... frivolous.

    There's 5 players who are old, but they don't all have to be replaced at once. I think we absolutely need to get some more LB's, though. We need to find those guys in the next couple of years. But I think we add another pass-rusher this year so we can transition from Pep and our Dline is still really deep. I only do that to free-up some $ for OL depth. We have Trill and Briggs for another 3-5 years IMO, so that's plenty of time to look for their replacements.

    Watch him bulk up to 240 for next year
    I think it's an interesting thought. Again though I question if he would be able to shed blocks and do any damage inside.

    And as far as that 3rd LB... will they ever be anything spectacular? lol
    Is it just because of how much Nickel we run?

    Oh, the Roach thing was until Urlacher retires. Not saying he'd stay at SLB, just for the time being. He's got the speed for the middle in the T2.

    You would be comfortable with him there?

    Wait, what?

    In my hypothetical fantasy land where Hardin bulks up to 250 and keeps his speed and his body doesn't shatter every time he hits someone?

    Yeah, I'd be comfortable with him in the middle.

    Oh. I see now.

    Yeah, Roach can go kick rocks after he's done playing next to 2 HOFs

    Hardin is an interesting guy. He can play multiple positions probs.
