I'm all for going to the 4-3... as soon as you tell me how switching solves the fact that we don't like our edge players. IMO, if you switch to 4-3 it makes our edge players look even more lacking.

I think a 4-3 Weakside DE is really hard to find. I can't see Watt holding up to that job. Maybe Dupree fits there but that's like starting over with him.

Honestly, move Watt to ILB, Dupree to LOLB, continue to play a lot of packages and 4-3 looks vs certain personnel and this D isn't that far away.

I think they could use another EDGE, preferably a stout vs run defender who is suited to play LOLB. I think they should have stuck with that interest in a situational pass rusher, too.


I would rather them move to a hybrid defense with 2 DTs that play 2 gap in the middle and two outside players. They can be OLB or DE.

That’s exactly the defense we played in 2017 on like 2/3 of the snaps.


I do not see any 2-gap in the defense this year. If so then they need to draft a fat body that can handle the double teams.

We should have switched to the 4-3 when we parted ways with LeBeau.

I don't think its impossible to switch. However, based on the last couple of drafts, I think we're married to the 3-4 defense for now.

Looks like the Redskins could release Su'a Cravens later this year. Ideal SS/ILB hybrid? Thoughts on him?

Is this the guy who threaten to retire at the beginning of this year?

Don't know his back story. Was mentioned in that article I linked to he walked away from the team though.
