You can't have a monster defense when you pay your CB's 20 million dollars combined.
Bingo! Great D' are built by the front 7. Heck, I could've played CB for the 86 Bears. They only needed to cover for about 2.5 seconds. Did you see how long Shaab had to pass last night. On some plays the secondary had to cover for 6 or 7 seconds or more. He was never under any real pressure and able to just leisurely survey the field. And he's not even very mobile. But that does not really matter since the Jets pass rush probably would have a tough time against a QB with a walker.
