    4-2 would be the ideal defense for this passing league. Have an extra defensive back out there. Problem is having the linebackers. Could you imagine a 4-2 if we made the right pick (Willis) rather than the Ginn Family?

    We would have Willis and Dansby. Just too awesome.

    Today's NFL may be a spread you out passing league but it doesn't matter if you are in a 4-3 or a 3-4. You need not only the personnel to make them work, you also need the right scheme. The Wade Phillips type of 34 where the linemen are more one-gap and get up the field are the kind of 34 that causes teams like the Patriots trouble. Pittsburgh also has the type of defense that can give spread offense trouble because they are also built on speed and not power the way Bill Parcells like his defenses. If you look at the Steelers defense, they don't have many LBs that weigh over 250 lbs and they all have one thing in common, they are not only quick but they are physical at the point. Bill Parcells don't have many LBs that are under 250 lbs and are more physical than quick.

    Get the right players in the right scheme and it doesn't matter if it's the 34 or 43. They can both work in todays NFL.

    If we hade drafted Willis instead of Ginn in 2007, I highly doubt we would have signed Dansby in 2010.

    We will get the normal noncommittal answer from the coaching staff. They always say they are going to run a "flex" or "hybrid" defense that uses some 3-4 and other times 4-3 or whatever. I think its easier to find players for the 4-3, but the 3-4 is more effective if you have the linebackers for it.
