Still not seeing any substantial empirical evidence to support that claim.
Like I said in a previous post, 11 teams ran a 3-4 last year. So basically 4-3 teams outnumber 3-4 teams two to one.
In terms of lowest QB rating allowed, 6 of the top 11 teams last year were 3-4 defenses. In terms of highest QB rating allowed, only 2 of the bottom 10 teams were 3-4 defenses.
If anything, the opposite of your argument is true.
