Do we stick with a 4-3 or a 3-4?
Whatever fits our personnel better
We could go hybrid 4-3/3-4 with the personel we have. Jones might be the biggest beneficiary.
We better go 4-3 because we don't have enough LBs, Josh or Chris have said that Jones is likely to go pro. A straight 3-4 means we don't ever get the top DTs in the country 2 years in row again. We got them because our major competitors were 3-4s while we were a 4-3. Look at Bama, the only position they haven't recruited lights out on defense is the DL, there is a reason for that... I hope we stay 4-3 base with a 3-4 mixed in on passing downs.
Agree and disagree, I don't want Pruitt to run a defense that he isn't familiar with. He needs to run the defense he is more comfortable with.
when did they Jones was likely to go pro?? Jones would be a making a mistake by going pro..
Anybody know what he ran at Hoover?
Whatever it is we're going to be in a lot of 5-6 DB sets regardless.
I saw one list where Jones wasn't even in the top 200 prospects which included juniors.
Was very multiple
I think we will be multiple
Jimbo said in his post practice interview that FSU would be running a lot more nickle in the future
As long as its not vs 6-7 Offensive Linemen front which includes 2 extra Tackles. Good lord I have no idea why we stayed in the Nickle vs that look vs UF.
That is the 4-3 by a long shot
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
We dont have the personnel to run a base 3-4, but we can show multiple fronts with occasional 3-4 fronts. I want to see a gradual transition to a 3-4.
running a 3-4 would waste the personnel we currently have. jernigan and goldman are much better suited to be 4-3 DTs. we also lack a true nose tackle and we dont have enough DE's and linebackers to make it work
FSU Ambassador to the masses
Lol isn't that the truth! My gosh
If we are going with what fits our personnel?
4-2-5 would fit with our lack of depth at LB.
Thanks for the downvote!!!
got you a +1 man. some people cant take things without freakin out
We pretty much run nickel or dime when our opponent runs 1 back.or empty backfield.
Exactly. We run it so much, we should transition to.
Lack a true NT? Shanks is listed at 340. IMO...DE wouldn't be a problem but I agree on LB.
I don't know about that. I'm not sure we're going to be that strong at DE. If we're not, then shifting 2 DT's to DE and standing Casher up a good deal as a pass-rushing linebacker is kind of intruiging. This year a 4-3 was a no-brainer. I'm not so sure about next year.
