4-4 Makes An Apperance

4-4 Makes An Apperance

Great post by Brian over at Railbird regarding the use of the 4-4 formation on the play where Matt Forte was stuffed on a 3rd and 1 this past Sunday against the Bears. (I'll admit; I was shocked they got the stop.)

Per Brian:

The defense used a 4-4 front including Desmond Bishop and Brady Poppinga in at linebacker. Forte was stuffed and the little used Bishop was in on the tackle.

One has to wonder whether the Packers will be using that grouping of players more often considering their troubles this season in defending against the run.

Number one, they get more run stuffing help up front. And number two, the defensive backs seem more than capable of fending for themselves despite less help in the secondary given their performance this year.
