Texans | Greenwood feels 4-3 scheme fits his skills

Thu, 17 Aug 2006 13:57:12 -0700

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans LB Morlon Greenwood feels more comfortable in the team's current 4-3 scheme. He was originally signed to play inside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme after playing outside with the Miami Dolphins. "I feel more comfortable (on the outside) because it's what I used to play when I was at Miami, and I was familiar with it coming out of Syracuse. The gaps are defined, and I'm able to run faster. I haven't had to make a large adjustment. The adjustment has been to the different calls and the difference up front. Any time you go into a new system, some adjustments will have to be made." Head coach Gary Kubiak thought he struggled at first, but noted that he has gotten better everyday.
