One thing that was clearly evident vs. SF is how much we rely on the physical play of our CBs!
Many on the board speculated over the past couple weeks that having Springs and Harris at 100% would have helped all facets of our defense. To some extent, I considered this wishful thinking. I agreed that they would give us a huge lift in pass coverage, but didn't realize that they made such an impact against the run.
They HIT people. Our corners are very, very physical and I love the brand of football they play. I'm very glad that Harris and Springs are back in the defensive backfield and I think it'll help us as the season progresses.
Great analysis by those who recognized this over the past couple weeks (I'm sorry I don't remember who it was specifically)!!
