The 4-3 and Doom

We have a new coach in town, and a lot of people are speculating a return to the 4-3 defense.  The question becomes what to do with Elvis Dumervil.  An idea I heard Alfred Williams mention a couple weeks ago sounded like the best I've heard regarding a move to the 4-3, but I wanted to see what other people think.


Let me start by saying that big Al is entertaining but I don't typically agree with him on football matters (IE Drafting Cam Newton).  Anyways......

Alfred suggested playing Doom at SAM linebacker and putting his hand in the dirt for third down and other obvious passing situations.  I also believe that he could be used as a blitzer on early downs  and still draw favorable matchups in this role.   I'm not really sure about the attributes required to play SAM, so maybe one of the football gurus could fill me in.  I believe that at the pro bowl last year he played SAM in the pro bowl base 4-3 defense.

If this were to work I believe you have a starting linebacking crew of Dumervil at Sam, Mays/ Draft Pick/ Free Agent at Mike, and DJ at Will.

 

Anyways, I really don't know if or how this would work, but it's a suggestion. Let me know what you think.
