In the article above, LA DB Darren Kitchen mentions Fred Jackson said they will be running a 4-3.
Rivals article says the D will be running a 4-3
So much good news makes me want to freak out and start a pos-bang party!!!!
Lot of good news tonight. Hopefully it keeps rolling...
FWIW, I would +1 you, if I could. NICE!
Ask and you shall receive.
As I said I would - with my newfound ability to +1, here you are, sir.
Love to start my day with this
It's hard to picture that voice with that guy.
If it weren't for the laughs, I don't think I would've made it all the way to the 45 second mark. And, was that Levert in there? Not sure. Whoa.
pos bang please?
in all honesty one of the best hires we could make
Praying they will be smart and put Roh back at DE...maybe it will even give Campbell a realistic chance to succeed.
If Campbell is going to be playing alongside Martin, instead of substituting then I can't see how it wouldn't help! With our lack of experienced linebackers, this is definitely the scheme we need to run. Pressure up front to help out our secondary.
I'm almost certain we'd start QW over BWC.
for that suggestion, I'm sure Roh will stay at DE. Surely he will understand the wisdom of suggestions from the MGoBorg. BTW, I couldn't agree with you more either.
We definitely need a NT to step up (looking at you Will Campbell and Quinton Washington). RVB is not a DT and Mike Martin would be put to better use as a 3-tech DT rather than a NT in the 4-3.
Maybe Ash steps up but I would realistically expect Campbell and Washington to be more ready considering that they will be entering year 3 of a college strength and conditioning program.
Does anybody know what kind of 4-3 Mattison runs (over, under, stack, etc.)?
Someone alert Jernigan
about 3 months ago, when the doubt started to creep in
That's very good news. I'm sure the 3-3-5 could be a wonderful defense, but I hope we never, ever try that ever again.
Cheers to that!
That's what she said (the last part).
Hoke probably ran the 3-3-5 at SDSU because that's what his DC was familiar with. New Gerg I believe has always run a 4-3 primarily(Ive seen him enough being a Steelers fan), and I dont care what Ravens fans say, he ran a VERY good defense there. Him and Hoke are going to make RVB/Martin/Roh/Black beastly.
Please do not call him GERG. There can only be one man that is so turned around on defensive schemes that the letters in his name get jumbled around too.
Force of habit brosef. Two years of calling our DC who in reality is named Greg, it kind of sticks with you when our new DC is also called Greg.
interesting scheme you have there. Something tells me this isn't going to happen.
The 3-3-5 IS INDEED a wonderful defense...to play offense against.
especially if you run power ball with 2 TE's and a FB.
We didn't really run the 3-3-5. It was more a bastardized version of it; our defense just happened to have 3 linemen, 3 linebackers and 5 defensive backs.
When I watched some SDSU games to see how a Hoke/Borges offense looked, I couldn't help but notice their 3-3-5 and how effective it was. Every play featured at least one (and usually more) LBs blitzing into a gap. Furthermore, when the LBs weren't blitzing, they were filling gaps very aggressively (i.e. they were running north and south rather than the side-to-side movements of our LBs last year). And also, the LBs were always lined up 5 yards from the LOS to avoid getting caught in the wash and also giving them time to pick up some speed before taking on a blocker.
Our defense sucked, no doubt about it, but it wasn't because the 3-3-5 sucks. It can be a good defense when run properly.
Good news 4-3, bad news Daren Kitchen over Lucien...but +1 anyways!
It says there's a chance he gets offered but i still don't see it happening with the DBs we still have a chance with Brown Hollawell Countess already in and McClure and Raven possibilities
I got carried away with the pos bangs that i +1d myself! shit
"I got carried away with the pos bangs that i +1d myself! shit"
is far better than this: "I got carried away with the pos bangs that i shit myself! +1"
Did you see our DB's last year? We need like 6 more
If Kitchen does get offered, he'll be a sure fire red shirt, something I am soooo happy to hear attached with the secondary.
Daren Kitchen has been bleeding blue the entire process, wants to play DB and is being recruited by Texas A&M. I, for one, would be thrilled if we land him.
I don't know if it makes a difference, but at least people won't be able to complain about it, so I'm in for the posbang too! WOO!
Does this call for a change to the nickname, like - Greg "The 4-3 Gatling Gun" Mattison?
I think you're spending a little too much time on Dawson's website.
The 4-3 makes me happy. I was starting to really hate the 3-3-5. I could never figure out whether it was the spinner's assignment to hang out 10 yards from any potential receiver, or the deathbacker's.
Mattison is coming home.... like Diddy
I hope he's not coming home just like Diddy. That would imply he's all washed up but still thinks he's good...
Just a referring to the song, that is all.
RIP BIG L
