Iím certainly no expert on this technique stuff but have read he is a 3 technique. We supposedly need a 1 technique. I think I understand that one plays center/guard gap and three plays guard/tackle gap, For those that know, exactly how interchangeable are they? Would that make him less desirable and therefore not worth as much money to Ballard? Thanks in advance

Such an obvious good idea, Ballard will likely bail and then show me in 12 months why my ideas were so stupid.
Iím for having the conversation, but I cant blame Ballard if he passes. We may have all the cap numbers, but ballard has a long term plan. It takes discipline to see it through and not step out side the plan.

I see this and Iím reminded of Booger McFarland. I dont know how close the Colts are, they wont surprise anyone this year. This is the guy who can get some big stops on some of those tough road games this coming year.

I don't think that McCoy being a 3-tech makes him less desirable to the Colts and Ballard. But, it would create somewhat of a logjam of sorts at that spot with Autry and Lewis ling up there now.

I think that Eberflus could find a meaningful way to get all 3 of them snaps though, especially on 3rd down.

So my point is that he is probably with more to some team that has no options at the 3 technique. How much money do we want to invest in that position?

12.75 million.

Not a dime more.

Man, it's dead in here in the off-season. Did JAFF and omaha finally get a room so they could bang it out?

It's a power vs quickness thing. 3-tech is Ina 1-on-1 situation, with room to maneuver. 1-tech is asking for a double-team and in the center of line.

So one of the things that was odd about our defense last year, as I recall, is that we played a lot of games with 2 1-techs at the same time. That's both DTs on either side of the center. I didn't have the time to really look at why, but my hunch is Eberflus can tinker the system to work with whatever talent he has available.

All of our DTs played 1-tech last year even though most (Autry, Hunt, Lewis and others) aren't suited for it. Grover Stewart and Al Woods are the two that were obvious 1-techs. They're going lighter on D-line like the old Dungy days.
