    If this is true it probably puts guys like Donald, Jernigan & Sutton high on our draft board. If the 4-3 is going to be our base defense we have to have a good/great 3T.

    ...In terms of the scheme, the Bears will remain a 4-3 base team. But having coaches with experience in a variety of different systems will give them the versatility to take advantage of what their players do best...

    there is what you need to know.

    I'm fine with the 4-3. What I'm not fine with is having a crappy D. Emery needs to get Mel the players, and then Mel needs to show he can coach the unit at a high level. I really don't care what scheme they use. If it's a 4-3 then acquire quality players to play THAT one well. I think fans get too hung up on 4-3 versus 3-4 or hybrid. It's not the scheme so much as having the players and coaches to excel in the given scheme.

    ESPN's take.

    Lets hope so Ric. I was kind of looking forward to more of a change in scheme but we'll see what happens. I can see us taking the best safety on the board in the 1st rd & the best 3T DT in the 2nd.

    Bear, lets look at how they bring in via FA and draft. They bring back a guy like DJ and then draft a guy like Hagemen, then the arrow is pointing to a diverse scheme, using the players versatility, much like the staff, even if it is a base 4-3.

    If they bring in a more tradition MLB and draft a guy like Donald, it's going to be a straight 4-3 w/more hopes of high impact players.

    Emery/Trestman probably don't want to bite off more than they can chew this year. There is a lot to fix, even if they stick with the 4-3 scheme.

    99, ESPN has a point but we don't have many signed DL so I'm not sure their point is valid.
