    i wonder if Lebeau thinks the same way.

    i also think this is a sign that we will be seeing a switch to the 4-3 in the next few years.
    We won't switch to the 4-3 why would we do that the 3-4 is a better defense

    because tomlin is a 4-3 guy. lebeau will eventually retire, and if the heir apparent is with another team, it make sense.

    not that i'm advocating it...just predicting...IF butler leaves for another team.

    tomlin is a 43 guy based on what? minnesota running a 43?

    if thats the case hes more of a WR guy since he played WR at w&m, he shouldnt be around a defense at all.

    hes not a 43 guy, the steelers dont have close to the personnel to run a 43 and really hes been learning the ins and outs of a 34 for like 5 years now, may be time to shake that notion

    hmm.. read article

    The Steelers continue attempts to retain Butler, but the Colts, who recently hired Chuck Pagano to be their head coach, are very interested.

    you noticed i did say in the next few years right? i didn't say anything about it happening immediately. i'm just saying, it COULD happen. anything is possible. why is my statement such a big deal? didn't the steelers run a 4-3 along time ago? wasn't switching to a 3-4 bizarre? things change...who cares...as long as they have the personnel to run whatever system they put out there.

    and many people who played offense in college go on to be defensive coaches and vice versa...it happens all the time.

    i was kidding about him being a WR....but the 43 is a very college defense, its JV in the NFL unless you have legit franchise cornerstones at DE and DT.

    cant see them switching to a 43 anytime soon, they have too much invested in the current personnel

    As we all know Tomlin hates change, this BA, KB thing prolly has him on edge as it is, I doubt we'll see this kind of change anytime soon..
