Enter our new coach & a D coordinator that has had a top ten D the last 4 years while working for the NYJ, the only thing is is that from what i read he was a 3/4 guy which does that mean we will be going back to that this year ?
Which that is a big question but what i was really wondering about was i have read a post about weather or not to bring back Merriman ? Seeing as he was a 3/4 LB & given the fact that MArio played a LB in the 3/4 scheme they ran in Houston it has been asked if Mario would go back to that position in Pettines D or would he change it to better fit the people he has on the roster & stay with a 4/3 base D ?
My thing is i guess if your line looked like this K. Williams - M. Dareus - A. Carrington for our front 3 could we use effectively M. WIlliams - K. Sheppard - Barnett - S. Merriman as our LB corp in what ever configuration they fit to their strengths & would that work with the players we have ?
We hopefully have a healthy T. Troup coming back which between Dareus 331 lbs & Troup 327 lbs may be able to do a good job at NT if this is the a way that they would go. I can't see Pettine completely going away from what he has been successful at & don't want him to if he can put our D in the top ten.
The year Mario got hurt while playing at the LB position he had 5 sacks in 5 games so it's not like he can't be effective the thing is keeping him happy with what he is doing, it was said that while in Houston & moved to the LB position he was not happy & would play at times with less than full effort.
Just something else to talk about amongst us Bills fans ...
