should the packers use the 3-3-5 as thier base defense?



All this basicly hinges on datone jones healty, and johhny jolly's health. but with 3 lineman it gives them a better chance against the run. while also be able to handle 3-4 wr sets. with jones jolly and raji they should be pretty stout. the 3 lbers would obviously be matthews jones and perry. this will be a nickle defense that will remain strong against the run. with matthews perry raji and datone they should be able to get a lot of pressure. This formation also has the added benifit of getting Hawk off the field and replacing him with either a cb or dlineman. LOL. we'll have to wait to see exactly how things shake out in the secondary but i feel pretty good about any combination of starters they choose. (well not ANY but come on its not like MM and capers would do something crazy like start Bush week one.....oh wait.....ftw....lets not do that this year lol) but basicly i feel like that formation really plays into the talent on the d. jolly to stuff the middle, ragi to hold down the end , and create pressure. jones will be seeing 1 on 1 matchups and should be able to hold his own against the run. he should be able to create alot of pressurein passing situations. those 3 will make it alot harder to block clay or perry.
