I just realized any handwringing over pass defense next year is kind of funny

    We had two NFL corners last year and were near dead last in pass defense. We can't be any worse and will likely be better. So losing those two really makes absolutely no difference.

    I'll take assumptions for $100, Alex.

    To be fair we were losing the player that started at safety once a week for like six straight weeks last year.

    Apparently having a DL that can get to the quarterback is mildly important.

    Maybe some folks around here have strong opinions about that.

    If we have a great D-line, you could throw me in at corner and we would be fine

    We actually can be worse.

    See '09 against CSU and Toledo. Huge bombs for TDs seemingly every other play. Ridiculous. Terrible scheming that year.

    At 112th we can be 8 places worse in passing defense efficiency in terms of BCS teams, not a whole lot worse.

    We will be fine, Our DL will get 10 sacks per game and with better coaching and schemes, cu will lead the country in pass defense...if not, sue me....

    Man that was one damper to an otherwise great trip to maui. If I recall correctly Stokley caught a tip ball the next day to win the game against the Bengals. I was the only bronco fan in the bar at about 9 am screaming my face off

    To be fair, it's mostly been our safeties getting burned the last couple years. But no reason the corners can't get in on the flamage too. Yeah. It can actually get worse.
