I agree with almost all of that and would add 2 things:

5. Kam Chancellor is an All-pro SS, probably the best in the league, who can cover elite TE's and make hammer tackles at the POA equally well.

6. Their Press man and Press Zone technique seriously disrupts a lot of timing patterns and everyone in their secondary is exceptional with it.
