Their 3-4 is really more of a one-gap 3-4 than a two-gap 3-4. They shade those guys and they play a pretty high amount of man coverage, which he’s done in the past. It varies a little bit but they play quite a bit of man coverage and then they go to their sub defense which is a dime defense in this case, where they bring in [Quentin] Demps at safety and whoever the third corner is, they’ve had a couple injuries but whoever that third corner is and move [Glover] Quin down. It’s not a myriad of formations and different personnel groupings and all that. They basically have the same guys on the field for a high percentage of the time. This isn’t the most complicated team we’ve ever seen but what they do, they do well. They’re well balanced, they do enough things to keep you off balance to complement what they’re doing so they’re not just setting one track. They have a lot of multiples and variables but it’s contained within the system. They do it every week; you have to deal with it every week. They’re not going to let you off the hook, they’re going to give you the variables every week, you’re going to have to decide how you’re going to handle them and sooner or later you’re going to see them.
