it seems all the talk of switching to 4-3 is focused on Terrell Suggs. a guy that i don't know much about that is also hugely impacted by the defense switchup:
Tony Weaver

i know he was a 2nd round pick out Notre Dame, a 4 year vet. how will he do as a 4-3 pass rusher. in 3-4 his main role was to block for boulware and suggs. is he gonna be good?

I really think that Weaver is a perfect compliment for Suggs. On one end you have Suggs, a great pass rushing end and on the other side you have Weaver, a great run stopping end. That mix allows the LBs (Lewis and Thomas) to cheat to Suggs side to help him in run stopping, and on Weaver's side I would play Boulware. Weaver would take up a couple of blockers to allow Boulware to rush around the outside on pass plays.

I still think that we should look to get a DE in rounds 2-3 to help with the pass rush though, just as a change up, but I really think that Weaver and Suggs will be a great pair of DEs.

I thought Ravens would be switchin to a 4-6 with 2 premier cover corners now.

Guys... the '85 Bears did not have two premier cover corners... you don't need that to run the 4-6 effectively. It really hinges on having a great front seven. The Ravens are on the verge of having that - and a great secondary to boot. They could be a very scary defensive unit this year.

2 great CBs are very important because they will almost always be locked in 1 on 1 with one other player at the most with deep help. The corners certainly helps, though i guess its not an absolute necessity.

I think that Anthony Weaver will be more of a factor as an end in the 4-3. In the 3-4 linemen primarily take up blockers so that the linebackers can make plays. As a 4-3 end Weaver will have a much bigger impact rushing the quarterback, and he could easily get around 8 sacks. He is very good against the run but he can pressure the quarterback too, he is an all-around defensive lineman.
