The Packers 3-4 Defense

Here is a very informative piece on the new 3-4 defense the Packers are moving to. It offers a very good explanation. This is a great move for the Packers and in time I think the results will be very satisfying to Packer fans everywhere.

I never thought I'd admit it ... but, I've grown to like the 3-4.

With the proper LB core, a solid NT and at least one good DE, this defensive scheme can wreak havoc.

Basically, as long as teams follow Pittsburgh's template, they will be well on their way to success with it.

Speaking of ... I'm pretty jealous of the Capers pick up. OK, EXTREMELY jealous! We were hoping for him to replace good ol' Wade.

Jeremy,

I hope Green Bay gives Capers and McCarthy the time to get the 3-4 going good. The Packers have made some very important moves here and that takes time to get together. It will be worth the wait (I'd say two years to really get it down).

Jeremy,

I am really excited about this move. They are talking about putting Kampman at LB. Though, I think we will need to bring someone in for the D-Line. A lot of people up here, on the local radio, are already complaining about it. I don't think they will be happy no matter what, though. If it works out they will all claim they supported it, though.
