    I agree with most of that, but I'm still not certain how the DT rotation will play out.

    Carriker may be the starting NT (if he, as he stated he would, bulks up to 315 lbs., he should be able to do so), but I wouldn't rule out him getting a long look at the UT positions as well.

    I'm also not convinced that Wroten will be a starter by opening day. I think Glover will start, but Wroten will get his share of reps.

    I'm also curious to see how Ryan and Jackson fit in.

    Oh, yeah... there's also Kennedy.

    Definitely the most intriguing position battle on the defensive side of the ball.

    Morning Ram fans! I'm confused 'bout what we play on D. Do we go 4-3 with variables that include unbalanced lines w/ a NT or what? Help will be welcome, thanks!

    I’m not sure on that either…. Glover and Wroten will rotate. It’s going to come down to how well Wroten looks in camp and preseason. We made a youth movement on the O-line last year, if Wroten is a force he could get the job.

    I wonder if we will see at times Carriker playing some DE. If we still can’t stop the run we could go big with. Kennedy at NT and Carriker at DE.

    On thing is for sure we will have some good battles going on for a change.

    As Spoon's backup, and emergency starter at all 3 LB spots.

    Re: Your starting defense in 07?

    Using Bison's format, I'll go with...

    Base & run sets

    Will - Pisa
    DE - Little
    DT - Carriker
    Mike - Spoon
    DT - Kennedy / Wroten
    DE - Hall
    Sam - Chillar

    CB - Hill
    FS - Atogwe
    SS - Chavous / Carter
    CB - Brown

    Pass sets

    CB - Hill
    LB - Pisa
    DE - Little / Hall
    DT - Carriker
    DT - Glover / Wroten
    DE - Adeyanju
    LB - Draft
    CB - Brown

    S - Carter / Chavous

    either...
    NB - Bartell or...
    BE - Alston


    Fact of the matter is, Rams defense looks better. And I don't think it is "on paper" only. GO DEE!

    Rams run a standard 4-3 defense. I'm not too sure how James Hall will pan out, but probably is an upgrade of the DE I really dont feel like looking up how to spell his last name. Rookies dont usually make splashes in the water at DT until 2-3 years into the league so I dont expect Carriker to really improve the Dline until then. Glover will probably win the DT position. I absolutely hate the 4-3 and I wish the Chiefs had the players adequate enough to play a 3-4, especially with all of the LB's that are in KC. The acquisition of Kendrell Bell a couple seasons turned out to be horrible since he is a 3-4 ILB and we switched him to outside where he has to cover when he is strictly a downhill LB. Oh well.

    Your pass set looks interesting. I for one can't see Little and Hill rotating while Adeyanju is there every passing down. Plus you are removing our best linebacker in Spoon, a guy that has shown the ability to play both the pass and the run. For the backfield I would rather have Chavous there all the time and Atogwe out on the field instead of another LB; especially since he seems to have a nose for the football.

    So RealRam, what is your thinking behind your pass set? Like I said it looks interesting and I would just like to hear your opinion on it. Thanks

    Draft has experience playing on the special teams coverage units.

    Re: Your starting defense in 07?

    This is tough based on the new additions and the fact that there will be different looks depending on the situation.

    Here's how IMO it might like like:

    Base 4-3
    DL

    Little
    Kennedy
    Carriker
    Hall

    LB
    Chillar
    Spoon
    5-O

    DB's

    Brown
    Hill

    OJ
    Chavous


    Nickel

    DL
    Little
    Glover(passing) Wroten(run?)
    Carriker
    Hall

    LB

    Spoon
    Draft

    DB's

    Brown
    Hill
    Bartel

    OJ
    Chavous (could see Johnson in run situations)

    Dime

    DL
    Little
    Glover
    Carriker
    Hall

    LB
    Draft, or Spoon, or Pisa

    DB's
    Brown
    Hill
    Bartel
    Carter

    OJ
    Chavous

    Re: Your starting defense in 07?

    I agree with most of the base 4-3's, but what about a 3-4??? For special circumstances:

    DE Glover-has played some end in 3-4 @ Dallas
    NT Kennedy-Big body in the middle
    DE Carriker-position many thought he would excel @
    LOLB Little-his drafted position
    ILB Spoon
    ILB Draft-provides depth as well as versatility
    ROLB Pisa???-Kinda need a big guy, maybe Chillar
    CB Hill
    CB Brown
    FS OJ
    SS Chavous
