4-3 defense. Should we go sprinkle it in some more?

Yeah... This defense isn’t exactly a new philosophy. The NY giants ran a “big nickel” as their base defense 6 years ago. It wasn’t earth shattering then and it’s not today. Many college and NFL teams have adapted to the current game.

This defense going to a base 4-3 puts its best players on the bench and worst players on the field.

That’s a hard pass for me.

Anyone recall 2017 with our "totally elite" linebacking core? So good that Logan Woodside, Kurt Benkert and others completely smoked our D in the mid-range passing game, especially on third down.

At this point, we should consider playing with a second striker.

“Pro style, bro!” Was the phrase for canes fans for years.

”4-3 bro!” Has the same kinda backward thinking to it.

I will say I still like the original Miami D a lot, but I think a 4-2-5 cover 1 defense is probably the one we should play over anything else. Simple, great against the run and pass, can run cover 3 off it, and use two man for third and long.

Read several msgs by posters above regarding, 4-3, 4-2-5 etc.
No such thing.

You can run any defense out of any players.
