This Years Pass Rush

FF,

Were I planning against the Saints, I would go with short and precise pass routes, draw plays, and screens to take advantage of our speedy and aggressive pass rush. Stopping any/all of the above depend on LBs and CBs. If we have a smart defensive coordinator the safeties will assist the LBs/CBs on these routes.

Here is the problem, as I see it, for our defense. Our CBs (and most for that matter) are shorter than enemy WRs. Most of our CBs are slower and less agile than enemy WRs (we are told to believe that our CBs make up for this by being aggressive and savvy.)
Agreed! That has been exactly my point for the last few days. Thank you for putting it so well.

I believe our corners are fine, but the reason I\'ve been harping on this point is because people seem to think that fine is good enough given our \"great pass rush\". However, \"great pass rushes\" (other than perhaps the dome patrol) DO need good corners - otherwise it is too easy to dump (i.e. throw short passes or screens).

I don\'t think our starting corners are a reason for too much concern (except perhaps their hight), but I do think that the addition of a tall, skilled corner is critical to our defense.
