Poll: 3-4 Transition better for Offense or Defense

Offense...
Go back a year and change and one of the biggest criticisms of Trent Edwards was that he was baffled by the 3-4 defense.  While I am to lazy to produce stats on this, I invite anyone else to prove or disprove that point.  With that said, I am of the strong opinion that the shift of the defense to the 3-4 actually helped Trent out.  Pretty simple, the more time he has facing it in practice, from first string quality talent, the better chance he has to figure it out.  The same can be said for the O-line, receivers, etc.

 

Defense...

Now I am also of the strong opinion that we actually had a good Defense last year.  Yes the secondary rocked, and yes we had some issues with the run...to say the least...but I was never on the bandwagon to swap out for the 3-4.  That said, I still appreciate the fact that it sucked to face the 3-4, so if you can't beat them...join them...mentality. The biggest problem our D faced was injury, more talent needed at the line, and well they just had to play for too long per game. 

So what do you think...in the  end only the regular season will tell.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
