I do not think it is a coincidence


That the group you note the least improvement in has been the DBs and that is the group that has suffered the most injuries. The defensive backfield must be able to function together as a complimentary unit not just stand alone. There are very few shutdown corners who can simply take a 1 v1 matchup and dominate. The amount of shifting that has occurred definitely hurts. It also glaring because a breakdown in pass coverage usually means a big play. Our guys have much better coverage skills than they did during the London area. The biggest thing they need is communication and trust. You have to know here your help is in a particular coverage vs route tree. If I am a corner and release a guy to the safety then the safety has to be there. I saw many plays last year where the corner released a guy but the safety was not where he should have been and we were burned as a result
