I, for one, find it refershing that the coaching staff is calling it what is instead of calling it want some wants to hear. Look around the league at the current teams labeled as a 3-4 and ask their fans how often do they really play a 4-3? The good teams switch between a 3-4 and 4-3 allignment the entire game depending on how the offense lines up and the down a nd distance.
The REALLY good ones switch back and forth without changing personnel.
Not that big of an issue, but I think they ARE calling it what people want to hear. They don't want to call it a 3-4 because they think the fans believe our personnel is better suited to a 4-3 (and it probably is as of now). They don't want us to believe they are just another group of coaches who try to make players fit a system as opposed to the other way around.
As mentioned, every team does not run the same allignment on each play. They all switch it up, even those who aren't afraid to say they run a 3-4.
