Default Re: Over-emphasis on CBs stopping rush?

I support having and emphasis on run-stopping CB's, but at the same time coverage skills cannot completely be sacrificed to have such players. We can't be drafting, signing, and starting CB's just because they play the run well, they need to be able to hold their own in coverage as well.

We do need much better coverage CBs, I don't mind sacrificing a little bit of pure man-toman ability for a CB who can stop the run well but I don't want William Gays either. They need to be held to a higher standard and not given a free pass on our team for their runstopping ability.
