Re: Does anyone play a 3-4?

Multiple D bood is good, but I like the 3-4 book for the different looks it gives you. I feel like its best for stopping the underneath passes which are so easy in this game.
Also the 3-4 is great for zone blitzing... blitz an ILB & the Safety on that side, the guard will run up & block the ILB while the safety sneaks by, if your safety is fast enough he can get great pressure.
The main problem for me is that with the 3-4 boom you dont get the 4-4 which is my personal favorite in goaline & short yrd situations.

Re: Does anyone play a 3-4?

I've been using the 3-4 for the last two seasons in dynasty for the same reason, lack of DTs. I like it, I don't have problems stopping the run with it. The CPU sucks at running and most humans run outside all the time. I suppose if I did face a dedicated inside runner it might be tougher.

On year 3 now and I finally have the DT talent to switch back to 4-3. Nothing against the 3-4, it's just how I planned it when I started my recruiting back at the beginning.

To me the key in 3-4 was to not fall into the trap of only rushing 3 players on pass defense. I had to make myself remember to send at least one blitzer pretty much every time. If you watch teams like the Steelers they almost always send 1, more often 2 LBs.

The thing I'm looking forward to with 4-3 is having the Nickel Strong package back.

I absolutely hate the 3-4. It has never worked for me.
