If we remember, we had 3-4 personnel when Philbin was hired, and after he was hired he said he was changing it to a 4-3 defense. He then brought in Kevin Coyle to make the change. We all thought it was a bad idea and we watched the defense get worst and worst with each year.

"Both win," Joseph told me. "And I've been a 3-4 guy most of my career. But when you come to a place like this and see the defensive personnel you've got, and, in my opinion, it's not broken, you can't all of a sudden go to 34 where you have to re-draft to a defense. That takes time. That takes too much time.

"And I don't want to be a guy who as a coordinator, I'm a 34 guy with 43 personnel driven team. I'm not going to say, 'Well, let's change it,' and set us back two or three years. That's not smart in my opinion. That's not coordinating. If this team had 34 personnel, we'd be a 34 defense. I can do both. For me, it's not a big deal to be a 34 or 43 defense, it's just numbers. It would be a shame to come to a place that's close to being good on defense and then flip it, then you're three years away again. I didn't want to do that."

This is a refreshing approach, letting players strength dictate the scheme....what a novel idea. We'll see how it plays out.

It's crazy that we are all impressed with common sense, but the last coaching regime showed us all that some people think they are smarter than common sense.

Yeah, well... the last regime said some of these too.

Let's hope Cameron Wake isn't in the flat covering scat backs this season.

That's exactly what I was thinking...And that regime turned out to be the most stubborn coaching staff I have ever seen...Hut Hut

I'll wait til I see results....
