I totally agree, at least in one direction. Weakening your pass rush is no way to improve coverage. But I tend to think that a ferocious pass rush helps the secondary more than a top-tier secondary helps out the pass rush. If you look at some of the other top sacking teams, you won't see a bunch of elite secondaries.
Mostly though this is an issue of priorities. Do you spend resources on huge glaring holes you saw all year on defense, or on one part that looked a little concerning for part of one game, but otherwise was one of the best in the league?
