If Suh leaves, is anyone else wanting to break the bank on Houston? Arguably the best 3-4 OLB, he'd allow for a smooth switch to a 3-4 D.

Fairley at nose, Mosley and maybe a draft pick at the ends, ansah the other OLB, and Levy/draft pick/KVN/Tulloch manning the middle.

Yes, the Lions were the second best D in the league by using 4-3. Let's switch to 3-4 for no particular reason.

Seriously, WTF is up with people's constant obsession with the 3-4?

Is that not a Defense that Austin is more familiar with? To be honest I expect us to be more of a hybrid D next year anyways, utilising both a 4-3 and 3-4 front. Austin seems to like mixing it up.

The Lions were mostly a 4-3 is season but they mixed in the hybrid look and no they won't go to a 3-4, they might throw in more hybrid looks but no way they go 3-4. Even in Baltimore they haven't run a traditional 3-4, instead they line up like a 4-3 defense butt have always listed guys like Suggs as an OLB (OLBs get paid less than DEs) even though he is strictly a DE in the way he plays. Also there is no way Fairley and those chicken legs are going to hold up as a NT. Lastly they shouldn't break the bank on a DE/OLB, how did that work out for the Texans? Watt had the greatest year for a DE since the days of Reggie White and how much better were the Texans this season? They just don't make enough impact plays on a game to game basis. Houston had 22 sacks where did the Chiefs end up?

we may not even have austin next year making a 3-4 that much less likely...if we do - fine theorize away. if the lions did sign houston though that would maybe be a sign that they are considering some kind of philosophical scheme change
