FES playing like Roy's line did.

That would be too much for most teams to handle.
I agree. It was a set-up that worked for Buffalo before, and we're one center away from being able to run that kind of model again. The 3C system doesn't just work for Pittsburgh because they have 2 of the best in the world -- it works because nobody has enough defensive lines to match up against that many lines with skill.
