Running a 3-4 you'd need to go find another outside linebacker (maybe Wooten could play opposite McClellin?) and play Briggs and Roach inside. Peppers and Melton would be your ends with Izzy backing up. Maybe a new head coach could bring in an OC that has a clue as to what he's doing.
On one hand, we still have enough talent on this team that with a couple of moves we could be in serious contention next year. On the other hand, there seem to be some fundamental issues. For example, I've never liked the offensive scheme this year. We have more talent than last season, but less production and we seem very vanilla and basic. The defense getting old is a concern of course too.
We just lost two very winnable games that would have us a virtual lock for the playoffs, and even if we go 2-1 the next 3 games, a playoff berth isn't a certainty. And right now, I'm thinking going 2-1 is very much a longshot.
