Speaking on defense...
Todd Bowles had a second interview and met with the media today. Here's a snippet posted by Killer over at MLive...
Bowles also said that he would like to change Detroit's defense from a 4-3 scheme to a 3-4 alignment.
"Defensively, I've come from a 3-4 scheme -- I've been in a 4-3 scheme -- you want to have the personnel to fit what you do,'' Bowles said. "If you don't, you can have a hybrid version of a 4-3 until you can get a 3-4 scheme in place. I've coached in the 4-3, too, so if Ernie (Sims) or (Cliff) Avril don't fit a 3-4, we'll play a 4-3.
"I'll be working toward (a 3-4) as long as I have the personnel.''
Music to my ears. I love the 3-4 defense.
