The 3-4 comes to Georgia

The bottom line before I read up on Coach Todd Grantham coming to Georgia was that this was Richt's choice.

After reading a bit some of Coach Grantham's comments, I'm excited, even though I doubt we have the personel right now to run a really good 3-4 defense. But we need linebackers, period.

From David Hale for The Telgraph:
"We'll be a 3-4 structure which basically means that in your base defense you'll have two outside backers, three d linemen, two inside backers and your secondary would be the same whether you're a 3-4 or a 4-3 with two safeties and two corners. But saying that, we're more of an aggressive style 3-4. We're going to play one-gap defense. We're going to attack block up front. We're going to rush the passer. Our outside backers are going to be what we call edge-setters. They're going to be aggressive. They're going to be coming.
"Also, those outside backers will be 6'4", 240 pound killing machines."
