Butler is switching to a 4/3 base defense to stop the run. Then running sub defenses off of it.

Mike Prisuta expanded on the subject in this article for Steelers.com: https://www.steelers.com/news/defense-exploring-options :

The 4-3 look in the base alignment Dupree detailed following OTA No. 1 is an apparent response to the run-defense issues the Steelers experienced after losing inside linebacker Ryan Shazier last December in Cincinnati. “This is going to be my first year of rotating back and forth,” Dupree continued. “We know it’s going to be a run sometimes. And on short-yardage situations, on check-down plays, we’ll be able to rally around the ball real fast. We don’t usually try to do it in a lot of pass-rush situations. We just try to do it to be able to stop the run.”

Interesting. It can only help for the defense to be versatile.

Getting pressure with four is the only way to beat Brady.

It's about fucking time we tried doing this some. The league has only known this for 10+ years.

Any insight on how to beat Jacksonville?

That was all Ben's fault. Defense was fine in that game. It is known.

Can't wait until Ben retires and the shackles come off Tomlin and Butler.

Oddly enough, there's a few strong pages of it in the thread on Bell skipping OTAs, Gyst.
