    This acquisition tells you how bad the Bills organization is:

    The Bills recently this past off season transformed their defense from a 3-4 to 4-3.....

    Shawne Merriman is OLB in a 3-4 D...maybe he can play in a 4-3.. but why even claim him? when your team is 0-7 and Shawne hasnt played in a 4-3 in his pro career...

    I'm starting 2 like TT more and more by the year....

    GO PACK

    I'm pretty sure they run a 3-4.

    Lately they've been running a hybrid because of the complete lack of run defense, but I'm pretty sure they have a 3-4 defense as of this year.

    No they don't. As a poster said earlier, they scratched the 3-4, because they couldn't find players, and re-installed a 4-3.

    Now, if they're gonna go back to the 3-4, it's another thing.

    But they do not run a 3-4 right now.

    I hope Merriman has a resurgence and averages 3 sacks a game. Packers won't see the Bills for another 3 seasons. Hope Merriman makes the Pro Bowl every year.

    From what I've read today:

    The Bills started the season running a 3-4. They've slowly been converting back to a 4-3. In recent games, they've been running defensive plays out of both formations. In a sense they're running a "hybrid" defense.

    My opinion:

    They don't have the LB's to run either. Aaron Maybin isn't even ever active, lol.

    Damn, did I call that yesterday morning or what? :jester:

    I figured since rumors were rampant about them wanting AJ Hawk, claiming Merriman would be a logical choice.

    Considering we couldn't have signed him if we wanted to, I'm not really sure what there is to be bitter about.

    Exactly. He didn't get past the top team on the waiver wire, so we had no shot even if we wanted him.

    Surprised people aren't bitching because we didn't make a claim for Moss.

    Yeah, I almost feel bad for the guy. Obviously there's no indication as to the extent of his injury, but damn...
