RE: [patriotzip] Seymour's Role
- ***** I tend to agree with Zip's thought. The 3-4 is
essentially a run defense. Playing Seymour at DE in that
formation would be fine with me. But I agree completely
with you, Rob, that he doesn't have the speed to be a
consistent pass rushing threat from DE in a 4-3.
***** However, the fact is that our 4-3 over the past
couple of years hasn't provided a rush threat from DE, with
Pleasant and Hamilton manning those spots. I'm not sure if
BB prefers that approach, or if he simply couldn't afford
to add a rushing DE from either FA or the draft due to
***** If he prefers that approach, then we may well see
Seymour move to DE full time. If it's been a problem of
access to a better rushing DE, then BB will be adding such
a player from FA or the draft this off-season. I'm hoping
it's the latter.
