4-3 to stop the run!

I would rather build a 3-4 defense that can also hybrid into a 4-3.
I value a strong DT to anchor the D & a strong LB core that can do anything, rush the passer, stop the run, drop into coverage, & hybrid into a 4-3 defense for some extra run stopping power.

3-4
Brings more speed onto the field. Also gives a better pass rush.

I like the 3-4. It tends to be more cost effective and it's just better overall. Look at the top defenses in the NFL over the last 10 years. Almost all of them have been 3-4 or 3-4 hybrid defenses. It just has more speed on the field at any given time. My only concern is th 3-4 's ability to stop the run since it's not as stout up front.

For the most part 3-4 translates to NFL dominance because it is so cost effective - the linemen don't cost much in cap space vs 4-3 linemen and OLBs aren't typically that expensive. True pass rushing ends are rare and very expensive (Peppers' contract anyone?).

In a vacuum the 4-3 is FAR more dominant defense - you can see this historically when you look at defenses that either didn't have to worry about salary or hadn't run into in their first few years - but that isn't reality in the NFL so the 3-4 is the better $$ option.

I'm a 3-4 fan, but I like the 46 as well as the more funky fronts like the 1-5-5 and stuff. The so-called "amoeba" type defenses.

I would start with building a 3-4, then work on "secondary" personnel that can work in the others.

Helps rotate personnel, keeping guys fresher, bringing some fresh legs once in a while, etc.
