Its just too easy to pass these days and the secondary in general can only do so much.
Better to focus our defense on getting after the QB. I mean look at what Baltimore did to the SF defense. If you don't pressure the QB, you lose. Its especially true with us.
I know that JR understands the way the rules have changed the game. If guys like Gary Fencik and Ronnie Lott played today, they would be kicked out of the league.
Its impossible to have a great passrush all the time. That's a pipedream. You NEED good players in the second level. Its not about our safetys being able to hit people. you need players that are good in space. KP is one of those guys. everyone says this is a passing league. its true, so you need players that can play the pass. like I said, the rush cannot always get there. You still need to have a complete defense.
