Aside from the 'quarter' defense, the Redskins were using 4-down lineman throughout the Eagles game. I have not watched as many games this year as the rest of this forum likely has, so fill me in: Are the Redskins a 43 defense?


2016 Outlook


LE - Ryan Kerrigan/Trent Murphy

NT - Chris Baker

UT - Stephen Paea, Ricky Jean-Francois

RE - Preston Smith


SLB - ?

MLB - Will Compton

WLB - Keenan Robinson


CB - Bashaud Breland

SS - Duke Ihanacho
FS - DeAngelo Hall

CB - Chris Culliver


We've seen the strategy of long and physical corners take hold with Culliver and Dunbar added this year, necessitating the transition of Hall to FS this season (to see if it's an option for next season). Paea was best as a pass-rushing UT in Chicago and Murphy has some potential as a LE if he can add the weight, or a lesser option as a SLB. Kerrigan could play either position. If Galette returns, you have a potential Marcus Washington type of impact from SLB.


What say you: Are we seeing the end of the 34 defense in Washington?
