if Spagnola(sp) is the DC in the waiting then we def will probably transition to a 43 soon. I am shocked we haven't yet because Harbaugh coached under Jim Johnson. If we can grab Stephon Tuitt in the draft we definetly can show a lot more 43 looks.
that is a good explanation of seattle defense. If we take Clinton-Dix we maybe able to pull this off. I think Doom could be the LEO and Suggs standing up. IDK if we can do this every down but we definetly should have the talent to mix this in.
Theoretically, Spags would institute the 'Giants' defense, which is a defensive scheme I kinda like. The question is about the team in transition, and about his ability as a coordinator. He was a bust as a HC, and he's only been a DC two seasons. One he won a Super Bowl, the other he coordinated one of the worst defenses in NFL history. Obviously the Saints lacked talent at a lot of positions, but still they've been better with minimal changes this season. Who is the real Steve Spagnuolo?
For the record, in a 4-3 set Suggs and Doom are both DEs. It would be foolish to stand them up. But I'm all for transitioning to the 4-3, with all the evolution of the passing game I think it makes more sense. It reduces the personnel changes when you run nickel, which teams are forced to do more often now. As long as you build your front seven right, you can have success.
