My guess would be that it’s because the passing game is usually effected by
1. Pass Rush
in that order.
We’ve clearly improved on #1 and seem to have improved #2 with our 2 second round CB’s. We added Whitehead and Igwebuike who both show the ability to compete, and Conte and Tandy aren’t as bad as people seem to think. So yeah, I think we’ll be fine =)
That said, I’d love to see Reid come onboard, but I won’t hold my breath
