    The reason offenses are designing schemes to force LBs to cover TEs and RBs is because they are almost universally mismatches across the entire NFL. That is why it is so important to have a dominant pass rush

    Just shows how special Shazier was and how big a hole it is to fill. Oh...and it is the same front office that every criticizes who drafted Shazier.
    In zone cover match defenses offense find ways to attack mismatches in the middle of the field. Man to man offenses find ways.

    It's difficult for defenses to have great coverage defensive players at every level. This is why the pass rush and threat of the pass rush is so important. Pass coverage just needs to be good enough for the players to get to the QB.

    One issue all dedenses face probably now more than ever is the threat of and the number of QBs that can extend plays or flat out run the ball for yards/1st down.

    I'm not against Holcomb per say. At least he looks like a guy who'll stick his head in their and play the run better then Bush. So even if he can't cover, he's still better then Bush just on that one thing alone. So that has to be considered an improvement.

    But your right, the coverage guys are hard to come by in free agency.

    I do think we lost some of that with the loss of Sutton which necessitated the acquisition of Petersen.
    agreed.

    I like what we have done in free agency so far.
