Not because his coaching but because he will prob switch us to a 3-4 and we are not staffed for that right now. Zimmer prob keeps us a 4-3.


Because of that I officially cast my vote for Zimmer...

a 3-4 switch is not what this team needs

from my understanding (SB NAtion), if we are ever going to go to a 3-4 again, now is the time to do it. But also read that Zim could use either or of the defenses.

Zimmer has history and success running both a 3-4 and 4-3 defense. There is no telling what defense he will bring, and it won't matter.

And this topic makes it sound as if we already hired Bowles. I was about to disown the team until I opened the thread up.

with the all the roster turnover that is going to happen this is the year to switch.. Roman probably brings in the 3-4 too

I doubt they will pick Roman over Bowles and Zimmer but who knows...

Let me ask you a question; how has that 4-3 been working out the past few years ?

I prefer Zimmer, but this team will be fortunate to get Bowles. I think either one will move the team forward in short order.

Zimmer or Roman will get tha job and i think we will stay a 4-3 defense and throw that Tampa 2 out of tha window and i might hire Roman San Fran offense is sum wat like ours and im sure he can find a QB

Robison is not a 3-4 player... bad signing if we go to a 3-4... now if we signed Ev Griff instead and draft Anthony Barr at 8, then it makes sense...


But Robison is just a terrible fit in a 3-4... just TERRIBLE!

But Robison is just a terrible fit in a 3-4... just TERRIBLE! I disagree, I think Robison has the Size & speed to make it for a OLB, same thing with Griffen, the only thing really needed would be a beast of a NT, and then concentrate on the secondary.

Brian Robison and Everson Griffen, right size for 3-4 OLB? It would appear to be so. Point is only that any new coach could probably find a place for these guys, regardless of 3-4 or 4-3. Assuming, of course, Griffen continues as a Vike.

Robison: 6'3" 259lbs
Griffen: 6'3" 273lbs

By Comparison:
A couple of greats:
Kevin Greene: 6'3" 255lbs
James Harrison: 6'0" 275lbs

Current 3-4 OLBs…
AZ - Sam Acho: 6'3" 257lbs
AZ - John Abraham: 6'4" 263lbs
Pitt - Lamarr Woodley: 6'2" 265lbs
Pitt - Jason Worilds: 6'2" 262lbs
Pitt - Jarvis Jones: 6'2" 245lbs
NO - Junior Galette: 6'2" 258lbs
NO - Keyunta Dawson: 6'3" 258lbs

Yes I know Max, most would think that they would be giants out there on the edge, but the numbers prove that they would make a good fit..the smaller'ish Lb's are going to be on the inside. Most need to think of our 4-3 DE's as stand up DE's in a 3-4..both Robison & Griff have the speed. The DT's will still be "down" lineman, just move a little bit to the outside of where they were playing..I see it very possible. BTW MAx, I got your FF payment, THX!!
