That number would be way, way different if Lee, Carter, and even Church were playing. Look where all the completions and yardage come from before judging the DBs, it's not like QBs are hitting wide open WRs down the sidelines. They are working the middle of the field where corners are unable to make plays.
The LB and safety coverage in the middle of the field and in has been putrid. Add some poor tackling to that, and you've got a poor pass defense...but the CBs aren't really to blame.
