It is now pretty much a forgone conclusion that Lynn is expected to get a head coaching job this cycle with the favorite being the Bills. Well Gus bradley is expected to follow where ever Anthony Lynn ends up. That just shows amount of respect Lynn has from other coaches.

Ideal situation right there. All in for that.

While I love the idea, as his scheme is very similar to Pettine, I can't help but think this is an agent who shares both clients getting their names out there.

Yeah he runs a 4-3 base. I love the idea. I think it may be more than agent talk because Schefter put it out there. Wasn't a good head coach but his defenses in Jacksonville were good. He was the reason the Seahawks defense got so dominant years ago.

Thats what I mean though. These agents always reach out to the media and say stuff like this (true or not) to help increase the interest in their guy.

I know you can't base this job off of one game but I really dont think Lynn is ready to be HC. I really think he needs some more experience at OC and learn to take on more responsibility. He could be the guy in the future but I just dont see how he is ready to take the next step.

I am of the sand feeling.
The last 2 years we have drafted 3/4 players. Does this mean we start over again? Lawson was drafted as a 3/4 OLB. Where does he play. Plus we would have a glutton of ILBs.

hootlander shaq played with hand in the ground at Clemson I felt like he needed to be in a 4-3 system more then a 3-4 so he will go back to his original position. I worry about ragland as he may not be quick enough to play outside OLB but he may work well as a MLB.

Washington can be a guy on the outside or play inside depends on where they want him so i dont think scheme is going to be a huge issue if they move back to a 4-3

Ideally it would be great to stay at 3-4 however it seems like Dareus is so much better at 4-3 same with hughes

Shaq Lawson fits in well as 4/3 DE, Adolphus Washington will play UT with us hopefully getting one more year of Kyle Williams. Reggie Ragland will be MLB.

It could work

I think Ragland will be a fine MLB with both Browns on outside. Spikes was our MLB with Schwartz. Ragland is a more athletic faster version of Spikes.

If we do go to some form of a 4-3, IMO Ragland has to go to MLB. And as you said, he's more athletic than Spikes was, so maybe he actually would be worth a damn running with TE's & HB's down/across the middle.

If we end up with Bradley or anyone else running a 4-3 Under however, Hughes will be limited to playing the LEO position as he is just too small to man the other DE spot, which ends up being staffed by more of a heavier 3-4 type of DE.

Also, if I'm an opposing OC and you have Preston Brown outside, I'm swinging a HB out of the backfield or sending the TE on an out to attack him. You'd likely eventually bring up safety help to cover Preston's deficiencies and then I'm sending that HB or TE there again and attacking deep in the one-on-one match-up behind that. What I'm saying is that I think Preston needs to be a backup in any version of the 4-3. Just not a fan of his.

Well Id Preston at SOLB... in a 4-3 the SOLB is taken out a majority of the time for a Nickel Cornerback. In fact the Nickle corner would likely see the field more than Preston the SOLB in todays NFL so i dont think itd hurt to much.
