We know he can't rush the passer, but could he possibly be a NT in a 3-4?

Prob about as many that don't fit the 4-3 either. In other words most of them sucked

he's smaller than bunkley, and the way I see it
in a 4-3 he didn't demand a double team and in a 3-4 the NT needs to command a double team most of the time to free up the olbs. with that being the case, hell no!

Curious about your reasoning for this statement.

Now thats a good point. Sed was probably gone no matter what system we run next year. Just worth a discussion.

No.....

Lofton and Hawthorne will play inside. Shanle and Vilma have no place in this defense

Vilma

quote:

Eric Mangini's arrival as coach in 2006 meant switching from a 4-3 defense, where Vilma's skills as middle linebacker were best utilized, to a 3-4, where they were not.

Saints need to get John Jenkins to be NT & I can see Braylon Broughton working as a 3-4 DE
