4-3 Future.

I

Okay, I'm going to attempt to throw out a fun topic that will take our minds off of the rash of injuries that has struck this team.

First of all I am a Wade Phillips fan. Never mind the fact that I think Jerry should have hired Mike Singletary. But the prospect of Wade being fired grows closer and closer to a reality with each passing week.

My question to you is: would a 4-3 transition under the next head coach be a good thing?

I think this team is in pretty good shape to make the transition. Let me be clear, I am NOT a fan of the "Tampa 2". It's cute, and it generates a lot of sacks. But it wilts late in the season. And the guys up front are too light, so when you want to run straight at it, you can. Im talkin about a more traditional 4-3.

Not much changes in the back end, but I think in the front seven we have some pieces. Ratliff is very disruptive, and would be a good fit as a 3 technique. Tank would be a better anchor than he is now, with fewer double teams. Ware would still be Ware at end. And the other side would still be Ellis and Spencer.

I think Bradie James would work well at SAM, Zach Thomas can hold down the MIKE for another year or two, and Burnett is a fairly natural fit with his speed and range on the weak side. Roy Williams could even be reborn as a weakside linebacker.

I am a fan of the 3-4, but if we got a 4-3 coach, what would you think?
