How would it hinder Burnett? He was a beast as a 4-3 OLB in Tennessee. I think he would start opposite of Carpenter when we switch to a 4-3 front.

The 4-3 defense would only hinder: Ferguson, Canty, Bradie James, Jay Ratliff, and Kenyon Coleman. The benefits of the 4-3 are that it would better utilize Marcus Spears, Burnett, Ware, and Ayodele.
He didnt say it would. He was saying Burnett would benifit fom it. Anyway i would hate the move, D-Ware is better suited for a 3-4 defense and i dont want us to lose another LB out there. We have some great 3-4 personel, they just need a real 3-4 coordinator and I'm not so sure we're going to get one.

Here's hoping for a Phillips or a Rivera HC and Singeltary DC hiring. As for Rivera he seems to believe the Cowboys want him as a HC, not a d coord. and I hope he is right. I dont see him leaving Chicago to take the same position under coach Norv Turner. Especially when he's already coaching a top ranked defense.
Yes he would, he will win the super-bowl, and his contract is up. Plus we have more talent. Everyone is salavating over our defense, we just need the right coach.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him go back to the bears. Talent? I'm not so sure about that one at this point. I thought I heard him say a while back... "the only way I leave Chicago is for a HC position." i could be wrong but, I could've sworn i heard that somewhere.

I am very opposed to a move to the 4-3 but, if we did I would be comfortable with Spears moving inside. I remember two years ago, Monte Kiffin comparing Spears to that of Booger Mcfarland. This of course when Anthony was still being considered among the best DTs in the game.

Ware? I don't think so. He's a much better fit for the 3-4.

I wouldn't say "Waaaaay" to small. But he is undersized. But guys like Javon Kearse and Jason Taylor play lighter then that and still make in impace. And yes I believe Demarcus has a great as ability as they do. We can keep Marcus as our Base DE on first two downs, and bring in Coleman or another passrushing End in on obvious passing plays. Fergie's game should be that hindered, seeing he played in a 4-3 before and did it adequately. And please tell me how Burnett game will be "hindered" seeing he has the ability and speed to play in the 4-3, he played it in Tennessee pretty well.

Alrite my 4-3 if we do switch:

DE: Marcus Spears
NT: Jason Fergeson
DT: Jay Ratliff (Has the beefiness and quickness)
DE: Demarcus Ware

OLB: Bobby Carp
MLB: Bradie James (A little wooried about his speed here now)
OLB: Kevin Burnett

Which leaves out guys like Adoyle, Hatcher and Canty? Guys I really like. I don't know, anymore Ideas?

Yeah, Bradie wouldn't survive in the middle. Not enough speed.

Marcus Spears isn't good enough at rushing the passer to be a DE in the 4-3 IMO. I'd put Hatcher there. Move Spears to NT, and Ferg can backup. He's getting old, anyway. Ware would need to beef up. James would need to be replaced, and I don't think Fowler is the guy to do that, so MLB becomes a need. Add that to FS, CB, WR, OG, and we've got a slew of problems. I just don't think it's a good idea.

Did Adoyle play inside or outside when he was with Jacksonville? I would probably put him as the starting MLB over James, or even outside over Burnett. If the Cowboys make a switch to the Tampa 2 they are going to need to drastically improve the speed in their back 7 (but really they need to do that no matter what formation they run).

And I still say Ware could be a great Tampa 2 DE. Jason Taylor is actually a real nice example. It's easy to put on 10-15 lbs of muscle.

Ayodele played OLB, but his biggest problem was his lack of speed, especially in coverage.

The 4-3 defense would only hinder: Ferguson, Canty, Bradie James, Jay Ratliff, and Kenyon Coleman. The benefits of the 4-3 are that it would better utilize Marcus Spears, Burnett, Ware, and Ayodele.

I just explained that we use Marcus a base DE on the first couple downs, because he is a stud in the run game. Use him in the same way ravens use Tevor Pryce and in a way the packers use Aaron Kampman. Then plug in Hatcher or whoever else on obvious passing downs. And Spears is not a NT, if anything he has a UT game.

Agian, I am not for moving to the 4-3. But if we do, it will not be impossible, we do have talented players.

How would it hinder Burnett? He was a beast as a 4-3 OLB in Tennessee. I think he would start opposite of Carpenter when we switch to a 4-3 front.

The 4-3 defense would only hinder: Ferguson, Canty, Bradie James, Jay Ratliff, and Kenyon Coleman. The benefits of the 4-3 are that it would better utilize Marcus Spears, Burnett, Ware, and Ayodele.
Ware? I don't think so. He's a much better fit for the 3-4.
agreed, what is he 260 lbs?
257. Waaaaay too small.
I wouldn't say "Waaaaay" to small. But he is undersized. But guys like Javon Kearse and Jason Taylor play lighter then that and still make in impace. And yes I believe Demarcus has a great as ability as they do. We can keep Marcus as our Base DE on first two downs, and bring in Coleman or another passrushing End in on obvious passing plays. Fergie's game should be that hindered, seeing he played in a 4-3 before and did it adequately. And please tell me how Burnett game will be "hindered" seeing he has the ability and speed to play in the 4-3, he played it in Tennessee pretty well.

Alrite my 4-3 if we do switch:

DE: Marcus Spears
NT: Jason Fergeson
DT: Jay Ratliff (Has the beefiness and quickness)
DE: Demarcus Ware

OLB: Bobby Carp
MLB: Bradie James (A little wooried about his speed here now)
OLB: Kevin Burnett

Which leaves out guys like Adoyle, Hatcher and Canty? Guys I really like. I don't know, anymore Ideas?
Marcus Spears isn't good enough at rushing the passer to be a DE in the 4-3 IMO. I'd put Hatcher there. Move Spears to NT, and Ferg can backup. He's getting old, anyway. Ware would need to beef up. James would need to be replaced, and I don't think Fowler is the guy to do that, so MLB becomes a need. Add that to FS, CB, WR, OG, and we've got a slew of problems. I just don't think it's a good idea.
so, wait who would play the other DT position? 4-3.... 4 DLs, 3 LBs. Anyway that wouldn't be ideal, in the 4-3 you want your NT to be massive, like 325+ and then you will have a smaller DT, like a three technique type guy. We need to stick to the 3-4, switching now would be too much of a hassle/project.

What about Burnett as MLB and Ayodele outside? I think Marcus Spears would play DT in a 4-3, with Canty and Hatcher rotating as ends..

Sorry, I'm wasn't really thinking. The point is, I don't want to move back because, frankly, the 3-4 is better IMO. We're too close right now to try something else.

Isn't Burnett actually 240? I think he has the sideline to sideline speed that Ayodele or James miss..

Just kidding man...but you must have misread. I was just stating who JJ was talking about when he said he could name a couple of people the 4-3 would benefit. Furgy Hatcher Burnett would obviously be the people who would benefit.

Has everyone forgotten that Greg Ellis is still on the team??? If we switch to the 4-3, Ellis is starting at Left Defensive End. It's the surest lock of all the front 7 positions if we switch. No question.
