So now everybody uses the 3-4. Because fuck you innovation and originality!
But the Dolphins have one up on all the others. Bill Parcells himself. And that gives the Fins the edge when it comes to drafting dudes who fit into the 3-4.
....although the Dolphins might have more competition in finding the proper players to fit their system, don't be alarmed. After all, when it comes to finding 3-4 players, Parcells is the best in the business.
The article goes on to say that Jeff Ireland is learning everything he can from Parcells, and has already proven to he can find players for the 3-4 back when the two were in Dallas. So if and when Parcells walks, we'll be in good hands with Ireland. That's good news because now that everyone is in on the 3-4, it makes it tougher to get the players.
''It's a little bit like the West Coast offense ... this league was a heavy West Coast offense,'' Belichick said. ``So it's trendy.''
''It's cyclical,'' Belichick said. ``And now the 3-4 defense seems to be as popular as it was in the '80s when they had some Pro Bowl positions.''
The Dolphins can only hope Parcells' mastery of the art during that era can keep the latest newcomers from spoiling their fun.
We've got Parcells and we've got Ireland. These dudes start the trends. And when others try to copy it, it just shows how much better they are than everyone else. So we'll be fine. And we'll be taking exactly who we want during the draft while everyone else is scrambling to find the right guys and then hoping they don't flop. In other news, Bill Belichick can go get fucked with a gargantuan monkey fist.
