You have no favorite boards.
That's the hot rumor now. Wimbley and Ayers should cause problems this fall.
PapaTitan keeps it real.
This is something that has been going around the college and pro ranks for a while now. Most teams are including hybrid defenses and hybrid players.
Moreover, I have always questioned naming defenses. Sure, the Titans run a 4-3 base defense. But when you sneak Ayers up to the line and have him line up as an extra DE, the defense basically is presenting most similarly to a 5-2 rather than a 4-3. When Wimbley is standing at the line and drops back in coverage the defense is more characteristic of a 3-4 rather than a true 4-3. Defenses for the last 20+ yrs have ran multiple looks from varying formations.
