View Full Version : Anyone notice we've been playing almost entirely against 3-4 defenses?

Correct me if I'm wrong or if this has been noted already, but I think the only 4-3 defense we've seen since the Saint game in week 12 or so was the Falcons. I wonder if that has anything to do with the run we are on or if it's just a coincidence. Food for thought

Go Giants!

IMO there aren't many 4-3 teams left anymore, are there? Weren't the Falcons playing a 4-3? Bears? Eagles? Colts? Ravens?

Kind of like how in the 80s we were one of the only teams running the 3-4...

Yeah I know the Falcons Saints and Eagles run it. Those are the only teams we've played in the last two months or so that run a 4-3
