These guys are actually good safeties. That is a huge upgrade for a defense that's been covering for them. They are actually pretty special tacklers, so it has that added benefit in short yardage, goal line, and if we want to play dime and still be able to stop the run, a'la Pats that one drive where they wouldn't let us substitute.
