More teams don't use a really big NT because the ones that are good are rare. This is also why a lot of teams don't run a 3-4.
But in practice (whether it's outright listed or not) most 4-3 bases use a NT(whether he's huge or not he still tries to take a center and guard) and a 3 tech(one on one with the other guard). Again if you don't believe me do some research. I'm not pulling this out of my arse because I actually have researched this stuff a great deal.
If I get time I'll post links about everything we've been discussing.
I'll also say this is why Ellis was full of it when saying he sucked because he was always double teamed. He was our 3 tech not our NT. And we've tried pairing him with a bunch of NTs but fact is Ellis just sucked.
