All the Jets media and coaches keep preaching multiple fronts. TBH I think the 4-3 and 3-4 classification is fading away. As offenses have evolved and become multiple, defenses must do the same. It is a bigger chess match now.

Besides 3-4 and 4-3 we will be playing alot of nickel too.


Rex's defenses consistently play as high a percentage with nickel personnel as any team in the NFL.

And I agree, over the last 5 seasons the idea of a team being a 3-4 or a 4-3 team is fading. More teams use both odd and even fronts and different combinations behind that.

Offenses employ too many 3+ WR sets on first and second downs to be strict with your defense.

In an interview two years ago, Mike Pettine laughed when he was asked about being a 34 defense, saying the Jets only used a base 3-4 for eighteen percent of their defensive snaps that year.
