I'm not saying that the scheme isn't part of the problem. Maybe, maybe not. What I am saying is that we don't have the personnel to play bump and run man coverage either. If we don't generate more pass rush our DBs will get torched.

IMHO the issue up front (and the secondary for that matter) is personnel more than scheme. Poor drafting, poor scouting.
