Buffalo’s defense has had a few defining characteristics over the last few years. They have been light, fast, injury-prone, and often overachieving.
“As far as the initial alignment, the 3-4 is what we will start off with and we will adjust from there,” Edwards said yesterday.
Edwards learned the 3-4 defense while coaching the linebackers in Miami. He started his coaching career in Dallas under Chan Gailey 12 years ago.
There’s no way to know if Edwards will succeed, but the deck is stacked against him. His personnel just doesn’t fit the 3-4 scheme. We hope Ralph Wilson understands this is going to take a while to work.
