Seriously, instead of being negative about everything possible, how about doing a little research on what you don't like about it. Your agenda is worse than Swifts

You are always right Vel. Help me research.

"We’ll look for a coordinator who will [aid] Coach Smith and his approach to putting that type of aggressive defense on the field.”

it is still Smitty's defense.

Not sure how much we can blame BVG.

I love Mike Nolan, just not him running a 4-3.

From the PFF article:

The 4-3 or 3-4 tags can get a little overplayed. Almost every defense is multiple and a coach with the experience of Nolan should be more than able to coach a variety of ways. Bill Belichick, the dean of 3-4 defenses in the league, has essentially coached a team with a four man defensive line all season.

Nolan is known for running his hybrid in SF, a mixup of the 4-3 and 3-4. That version did well in SF against the run and points allowed, but he had the most success in Baltimore.

In the interim I think that would serve us best as we lack the personnel to make the change to a full 3-4, and without draft picks or excess trade bait, I don't see a change to 3-4 ( if there's one coming ) until at least 2013.
