At this point, I think we're desperate enough for a pass rusher that i'd risk it
See, I feel like people think this way because some of you are still looking at it from the 4-3 defense angle. We aren't really desperate for pass rushers. We have 2 very good pass rushers who just couldn't get on the field because of the type of defense we ran and the guys ahead of them being a veteran starter and a young first round pick. I'm not saying they can't use another guy to throw into the mix, but switching to a 3-4 has a lot to do with getting those 2 really good pass rushers on the field. Just switching to a 3-4 to get Junior and Tez on the field full time greatly improves the pass rush.
Also, running a defense that may have Roman Harper blitzing more should improve the pressure they get on the qb. That is if Harper is still with the team next year.
