Almost half of the NFL used 3-4 Defense in 2012, Could this bring our D back to the bowl? (1 Viewer)

I really think it was the best decision for our troubled defense. Seeing how we always struggle versus the 3-4, I am glad we mada the decision. It should improve our offensive play against the 3-4 as well.

The Saints went 7-9 with the worst Defense in the history of the NFL. They would certainly be a playoff team with a Defense ranked in the mid teens, a very dangerous team with anything higher. It all starts with choosing the right DC.
