I'm more of the opinion that if you get competent safety play our CBs aren't a problem.
Attachou and Hageman make no difference on this team vs the Chargers or Broncos. None at all.
Manning will do the quick 3 step drops that killed us last year and Rivers will copy it like he did last year, which killed us too.
Our CB's got abused last year. Remember Decker owning Flowers deep last year at Arrowhead? Remember Welker abusing Flowers on the quick slants in Denver last year? Remember Hopkins owning Smith at Arrowhead last year? Hell do you remember Flowers getting owned vs Jacoby Ford in Oakland a few years ago because he was too slow?
Yes we need safety help, but it won't help if these teams use the 4 WR sets they did before. It's impossible for safeties to cover all 4 consistently. At some point you need the CB's to do their jobs.
