I am not really familiar with defensive formations. What I know I have read on this blog.
Can some one explain what was going on today? I was under the impression that most of the time we would have 3 down linemen, 3 LBs, and the quick, which could be a pass rusher or another OLB.
Most of what I saw today were 3 or 4 down linemen with the SLB and the OLB standing at the line with one or two LBs in usual form a few yards from the line. I never really saw what has been drawn up online. When we had 3 down linemen, were we in our 4-3/3-4 package and the SAM was just playing close to the line? When we have 4 down linemen, is it usual to have LBs on either side of the line?
